This 3 hour bike tour will show you the real Bangkok. Highlights of the tour are the exploration of Chinatown’s narrow alleyways, markets and backstreets as well as the charming local areas of Thonburi.
Starting in the heart of Chinatown, the bike-ride explores its frenetic market environment. Winding through narrow alleyways, your senses come alive with the sights, sounds, and smells of a community in motion. You’ll pass by shophouses selling everything from Buddhist amulets to recycled truck engines. Locals worshiping at hidden temples, ritual paper burnings, and the omnipresent spirit house display evidence of a culture centuries in the making.
Crossing the Chao Phraya River with majestic views of the city skyline behind us, you visit Thonburi, the historic third capital of Thailand. Contrasting chaotic Chinatown, peaceful elements of local Thai life abound as the tour goes through diverse residential communities. Inquisitive smiles and friendly greetings reinforce the feeling the tour has truly left the “beaten path” and are now experiencing the real Bangkok.
