Know More about this tour

Make your way to the lobby of the Nouvo City Hotel, Samsen Road, Banglamphu to meet your guide. You'll travel together by taxi or minivan to the starting point of this exciting tour. After a quick bike fitting and briefing you'll head out near Khao san road in Banglamphu.

Your gentle 20 km (12.5 miles) morning bike ride travels through Bangkok Noi, the heart and soul of Bangkok. Across the Chao Praya River to the Thonburi side of Bangkok, this area has its own unique style of waterways and small roads. The old Bangkok Noi community has been established since King Chai Raja of Ayutthaya Period (AD 1532 - 1546). Bangkok Noi Canal which was once a part of the majestic Chao phraya river flows in a horseshoe shape through the old Bangkok Noi community.

Wind your way through the back streets of Suburban Bangkok and small laneways along the riverside. You'll cross the famous Rama VIII Bridge then ride through a local community who are well known for producing 'Maak', an addictive mixture of betel nut, lime and mulberry leaf.

You'll pass the King's Royal Barges and ride along The Bangkok Noi Canal which eventually leads you to the spectacular Wat arun, one of Bangkok's iconic landmarks. From Wat arun you'll head back across the Chao Praya River to Pranakorn via the Memorial bridge. This bridge was built in 1929 to mark the city of Bangkok's 150th anniversary.

You'll visit Wat suthat temple, which is home to a 25-foot tall Buddha. Your final stop is opposite Wat suthat to see the red frame giant swing which represents the movement of the God Shiva which was reserved for performances at grand ceremonies.

Your guide can assist you in getting a taxi back to your hotel if needed.

    Great way to see parts of Bangkok that you would never normally see. Our guide Ting was lovely and took great care of us
    Great way to avoid jet lag by staying awake

    Guide was very knowledgeable and accomodating. We avoided any main roads for the most part which was good. Got to see more of the Bangkok locals lifestyle which was great too.

    Although it started late, the tour was challenging, fun and allowed me to see a side of Bangkok that I never thought I would see.

  • 05-Nov-2017

    This is the way to see Bangkok and hear histories about back alleys, neighborhoods, and the city itself. We had a blast.

    We had the BEST time with our guide Jackie on this tour! We believe that bike tours are the best way to see new cities and this one did not disappoint. While the Temple of Dawn was amazing to see and was definitely on my list, the non-touristy parts of the tour, through the canal neighborhoods in Thonburi was the highlight of our short trip to Bangkok for sure. Do it!

    This was an amazing experience with a friendly and knowledgeable guide.

    We explored little alleys and backstreets, locations that we would never have found or dared to enter on our own. It was a truly immersive experience that I highly recommend.

    The other highlights included Kentucky Fried Banana and a rendition of a song on the official name of Bangkok by our guide. It is the longest name for a capital and the locals have a song to help spell it out.

    Thank you! We will be back with more friends in the future.
