Full description
Explore the true heart of the bustling city of Bangkok while it comes to life on this bicycle tour. Cycle the back roads and small laneways and discover that there is more to the city than just busy roads full of traffic alongside high-rise buildings. Riding down the quiet 'soi' and the tiny lanes that make up much of the city, you will discover ancient temples and lifestyles by the Chao Phraya River. The tour takes you through the labyrinth of streets and down every laneway imaginable to the heart and soul of Bangkok. The tour begins at 09.00 am, taking around 3-4 hours, depending on the group. The meeting point is near Khao San Road, where you will get a quick bike fitting and briefing before heading out.

    this is an excellent way to see parts of Bangkok that you wouldn't normally see since the pace is a little slower. riding down narrow alleyways and through markets of the locals was a highlight, and my guide was Excellent and very friendly. the whole organization is very professional. great time and money well spent!!

    Very interesting Tour of the History

    this was my second tour with grasshopper and it was amazing as usual. Kan was my tour guide and he was really fun to be with. He’s very determined about his work and he knows a lot about the history of the buddhist temples and paintings and the best local cuisine places. He made us stop at a desert van where they eere serving thai sweets. That was really nice. I would like to put this on record that inspite of the bike tyre getting punctured, he wasnt thrown off. He calmly removed the tyre and mended it from a grasshopper mechanic and while doing that made sure i found a comfortable place to sit and relax. This is a wonderful company to go with n this tour in particular is worth it. 10/10

    It was nice to be able to walk through quiet old Bangkok in the morning on a small alley. It was not difficult for a light walk and the heat was okay. There are no famous temples or royal palaces, but it was good to know the hidden temples and the guide's friendly explanation. Drinks and light snacks are also included, and the ship fee for crossing the river is also included, so you can enjoy casually.
