Description

Bike from Bangkok's bustling Khao San Road to the rural outskirts of the city during a 6-hour bike tour that gives you a fresh perspective on life in and around Thailand’s capital. With a guide, you’ll ride down urban back streets, passing by path-lined canals, lush gardens and rural farmland. It's perfect for people who enjoy biking and are looking for a chance to explore non-touristy areas around Bangkok. Regular stops allow for photo ops, temple visits, snacks and water breaks, and a Thai lunch is included; this small-group tour is limited to eight people.

Meet your guide at the bike shop near Khao San Road to receive a safety briefing and get outfitted with your high-quality bike and helmet.

This day bike ride is designed for those looking for a day on a bicycle out of the congestion of Bangkok. Winding your way out through the suburbs you will soon find yourself cycling in the outskirts of Bangkok where tall buildings are replaced by small wooden houses, roads become narrow concrete paths or dirt tracks and the crowds of people are replaced by the quiet of vegetation and trees.

Once on the outskirts of Bangkok there are few cars but many locals happy to see visitors cycling in their neighborhood. Enjoy a break for lunch at a delicious local eatery.

You will have a chance to stop at a few temples of historic importance including Wat Chaloh and Wat Kaew Fah. You will also pedal through areas with some agriculture - plant nurseries and orchards mostly. While this tour does not quite reach to the countryside, there is still a countryside feel in some sections.

Expect to ride 23 miles (37 km) in total; the mostly flat terrain consists of the smaller streets of central Bangkok, raised footpaths in communities along the canals and dirt roads in the lush farmland.

Your tour ends when you bike back to your starting point in the city.
