Full description
Meet your guide and cycle to the tour's first stop at a local fresh market where you’ll be able to taste some Thai fruits. Then you’ll continue cycling through a vibrant mix of local Thai communities including the Baan Bu Bronzework community. You’ll stop at interesting temples along the way, where your guide will talk about Buddhism and the history of the local communities. Once you arrive at Lad Mayom Floating Market, take some time to explore on your own and see the vibrant stalls selling everything from local Thai food to traditional Thai clothes. Afterwards have lunch and order a dish cooked on a tiny wooden boat anchored just next to your table. Next the bikes get loaded onto a traditional Thai teak wood boat and it’s time for a canal trip. While on the boat you’ll see the canal side lifestyle with its colorful scenery. If you’re lucky you might get a glimpse of a water monitor sunning itself on the banks of the river. The boat will make a stop at an orchid farm on the banks of the canal before dropping you off at a local temple where you will continue your ride. Your last stop will be Baan Silapin, an old Thai house on the banks of the canal which is now a gallery and puppet theater. From here you will make your way back to where the ride started.

This was my first bike tour ..and I loved every minute of the 7 hour tour through quiet suburban back streets and along canals and waterways away from the crowds. Jam is a fantastic guide and told us so much about the history of the places she took us: temples, markets, a floating market, and an orchid farm. She bought us tasty snacks from small stalls and lunch at tge floating market. Don't miss this fun and insightful tour of another side to Bangkok - run by real professionals.

I can highly recommend this bike tour. 3 different, interesting quarters with different groups of residents. Narrow streets and footbridges. Delicious snacks. Well-maintained bicycles and a nice, competent support from our guide (Jam). Will do my next tour again with Jammings. PS I also did a tour with Spiceroads Thailand. I cannot recommend this company.

Robe and Paul were outstanding guides, made sure we were kept safe despite crazy weekend traffic. lots of time at each stop to enjoy the sights sounds and smells. Exceptional value, we highly recommend. This was the highlight of our week in Bangkok.
