Discover The Best of Bangkok on a Bike
An amazing tour for anyone looking to explore Thailand and it’s traditions without the stress of being in centeral Bangkok.
The tour started with a boat ride across a river into the Bankachao nature reserve, away from all the noise of Bangkok.
We stopped at a fish museum, a Buddhist temple, and got to try some fresh fruit, picked right in front of us! The highlight of the trip was definitely the floating markets, the guide was especially helpful in introducing us to all of the types of food there and recommending things to try (such as the Thai fish cakes which were amazing!) The market its self was not full of tourists, which made it a particularly unique experience as we felt it was more authentic than some of the other markets in Bangkok.
As for the actual cycling, I am not an experienced cycler in the slightest but didn’t struggle much, the route was fairly flat and although there were some parts on roads, the local people were friendly and kept out of our way. Cycling through the jungle of bangkachao was an insane experience, with rivers on either side of the path containing the second largest lizard in the world!
The tour guide and his girlfriend were exptremely informative and helpful throughout the whole trip, even giving us a lift back to our hotel at the end.
I would highly recommend this trip to anyone.
