Bangkok: E-Scooter Jungle Tour in Bangkok

2. Bangkok: E-Scooter Jungle Tour in Bangkok

Escape the concrete jungle of Bangkok city center and go for an E-Scooter ride on what’s known as Bangkok’s Jungle island - Bang Krachao. You'll meet you at near Khlong Toei Pier, from there you’ll walk to the pier where we board a local ferry boat to cross the Chao Phraya River. As soon as you get off the boat at the other side of the river, it feels like we arrived in a totally different world. No high-rise buildings, almost no traffic and lots of trees and plants. Welcome to the ‘Green Lung’ of Bangkok! You’ll receive a short demonstration on how to operate your electric scooter before starting. After we set off we’ll scoot along at a laid-back pace making sure you’re feeling comfortable and enjoying the scooter ride. We'll take you off-the-beaten track to places that would be hard to find as a tourist, you’ll see: mangrove forests, coconut plantations and gardens of the hidden oasis as you scoot the quiet pathways at a relaxed pace. Look out for birds, squirrels and even lizards, and stop for refreshments at an old betel nut plantation. After exploring the island you’ll sit down by the river for some lunch before crossing back over, where you’ll get back to your accommodation.

We had such an amazing time! Our tour guide was fantastic and was passionate about her job and teaching us about the local foods. Our driver was great as well and both were very professional and always on time. We enjoyed the boat and all our stops along the way including the orchid farm and walking around several markets. We would highly recommend this tour as it exceeded our expectations. We learned about different foods and were given suggestions on what to try, and also were able to learn more about Thai culture along the way. We had plenty of time to explore the markets and shop - we never felt rushed. Would highly recommend!

This tour was the best tour my husband and I have ever taken (and we travel a lot)! We were lucky to have our guide Nui all to ourselves and she is very knowledgeable and answered all our questions. The tour takes you out of the most touristy parts of Bangkok where you can see how most people here live. Nui bought us delicious foods to try, and as a bonus, took really amazing pictures of us. This tour is a MUST DO for a 2+ day stay in Bangkok. Thank you Nui!

Guide is kind but he did not picked me up at hotel. We met at meeting point instead. Local market and canal tour is fun but not with many floating boats. Chautuchak market do not need the tour guide. Good tour to see the local people but a little bit expensive for the service.
