Full description
Experience Bangkok more like a local on a half-day bike tour of some of the Thai capital’s small communities. Cycle down narrow, traffic-free streets to see how the locals live their daily lives. Following a quick bike fitting at the meeting point, cycle past villas and luxury apartments en route to a hidden community in what some might regard as a “slum,” but locals call “home.” Meet some of the city’s poorest residents, walking to their kindergarten to see where their children are taught. Next, go to a neighborhood sweatshop en route to boarding a typical long tail boat to cross the Chao Phraya River. Once across the river, explore Bangkok’s greenest area. Ride the elevated pathways that run through lush vegetation and the shade of coconut palms and banana trees. Stop at a local restaurant for a light meal of pad thai (thai noodles) or khao pad (fried rice). Then, visit a secret Buddhist temple and learn more about the Buddhist faith. Return to the pier to re-cross the Chao Praya River back into the bustling heart of Bangkok. End with a visit to a small, open-air Muay Thai (Thai Boxing) school, and learn more about the origins of Thailand’s national sport and martial art form.

It was awesome! My girlfriend and I booked the excursion and then had a private tour as we were the only ones! We got there by taxi for about 100 baht (13km). Our guide (Ohm) was super friendly, helpful, patient and told us a lot about Bangkok and Thailand! With the bike through small winding streets, with the longtail boat over the river to the neighboring island (awesome!) And learn a lot about the country, nature, the old temples there and the history of Thailand. There were enough free drinks and lunch (vegetarian) was delicious. In the beginning it rained ... in my opinion it only made the tour even better! After we had explored the 16km2 island (approx. 4 hours), we drove back. Definitely an experience that you should have done! We would definitely go with the guide again, but then take another tour to experience even more!

An entirely good experience even though the heat was harsh on us. Remember sunscreen, a sun hat and sunglasses. The trip takes place at a pace so that everyone can follow. Several stops along the way, including with a really good meal, several stops where we drank water and took short breaks. Super guide Ohm and his helper Nail led us through the trip which is about 23 km. We took the trip from kl. 13-17.

Because it is a small group, you share your experience very quickly. And I must say that it is a good way to see Bangkok from a different perspective, namely by bicycle. The contact with the local people is very easy. The people are friendly and welcoming. We were even invited to celebrate their Saturday family gathering. A good guide is goldworthy who, with a lot of patience, passes on the information and shows us what there is to see. In short, a must do you want something different.
