Full description
Travel back in time by bicycle to the Bangkok of old!

Across the Chao Phraya river from Thailand's capital city, is a wilderness of jungle and waterways as yet unharmed by industry and modern civilization. Starting downtown, you'll cross the river by ferry before venturing along minor roads as they disappear into paths and walkways through this extraordinarily tranquil location, biking through small villages, and their temples and schools en route.

Along the way you'll stop at a workshop to watch incense being made, and visit a 250-year-old Ayutthaya-period temple with a sweeping teak roof. On weekends you'll also have the opportunity to visit the area's unusual floating market.

The 20km ride is very easy and mostly quite flat, although please note that it is important to be particularly cautious along some of the narrow elevated walkways.

From the metropolitan city to a sprawling jungle adventure in half a day, experience a Bangkok that few tourists are even aware of!

Varied and safe cycle ride through some typical Bangkok streets before heading over to Bangkachao and the "jungle". Really enjoyed the ride. Lazy pace with a few stops on the way. Max was a lovely guide, very knowledgeable and relaxed. Bikes were in good nick and helmets too. All very decent. Can only highly recommend doing the tour!

If you’d like to explore all aspects of Bangkok this is a great tour! You’ll get to see parts of the city you wouldn’t normally see such as the jungle, side streets and living hubs and out of the way districts. Loved it and our guide Max was very down to earth and lovely to interact with.

I was very fortunate to be the only one on the trip so was very well looked after. I could stay well tucked in behind Jimmy who was very attentive and gave clear instructions on the busy roads and over in the jungly area where some of the paths were quite narrow and raised . The bike was very comfortable. The road and paths are flat so no need to change gears much. It was all interesting , across the river and cycling through the poor area . What a contrast from the modern side . The weather was perfect and the countryside really quiet. I’d say I knocked it off!
