    Stop At: Recreational Bangkok Biking, Baan Sri Kung, 350/151 Rama III Road, Soi 71, Bangkok 10120 Thailand

    At our office/lounge we have a a small briefing before jumping on our bicycles and start the adventure.

    Stop At: Wat Yannawa, 40 jaroenkrung Rd., Yannawa, sathorn, Bangkok 10120 Thailand

    Not the Wat but the district! This part of Bangkok is part of the business districts. We'll ride through small communities and backstreet roads avoiding as much as possible the daily traffic. By doing so you will get to places normally any tourists will come. Visit a local elementary school in a very narrow street.

    Duration: 30 minutes

    Stop At: Chao Phraya River, 780/488 Charoen Krung Road, Bang Kho Laem, Bangkok 10120 Thailand

    Like all urban rivers, the history of the Chao Phraya is intertwined with the city it flows through. The original site was chosen by early settlers because of its fertility and abundant fish. Later King Taksin, after the fall of Ayutthaya to the Burmese, located his new capital here, on the western banks today known as Thonburi. In 1782 King Rama I, finding the eastern banks more favourable, founded modern Bangkok and celebrated the occasion by building some of the world's most beguiling temples. Later still the canals it feeds became famous, earning Bangkok its 'Venice of the East' epithet. And, meanwhile, eminent Western authors like Maugham, Conrad and Coward were singling out the Chao Phraya as one of their favourite spots in the Far East. We will cross this river twice by long-tail boat.


    Duration: 10 minutes

    Stop At: Bangkachao Pier, ท่าเรือกำนันขาว 33 ซอย เพชรหึงษ์ Tambon Bang Kachao, Amphoe Phra Pradaeng, Chang Wat Samut Prakan 10130, Thailand

    Bang Krachao island is a green oasis right in the heart of Bangkok. This urban jungle is actually visible from the higher floors of many apartment blocks along Sukhumvit Road, Sathorn Road and Narathiwat Road, however, it remains unknown to most travelers.

    Bang Krachao is nothing like the tropical paradise of Koh Lipe or Koh Kood. However, it is unique and amazing in its own right.

    Bang Krachao is actually a man-made island located in the Chao Praya River. Years ago a canal was cut allowing cargo boats to shorten their journey along the river. Bang Krachao is commonly referred to as the "Lung of Bangkok", this is due to the huge amount of trees which eat up the city’s air pollution. There are thousands of mangrove trees around the perimeter of the island and plenty more jungle within the island itself.

    In a rapidly developing city, Bang Krachao is one place which has managed to withstand change. So, you better visit before it’s too late!

    Duration: 2 hours

    Stop At: Sri Nakhon Khuean Khan Park And Botanical Garden, Soi Wat Rat Rangsan Bang Kachao, Phra Pradaeng 10130 Thailand

    Sri Nakhon Khuean Khan Park and Botanical Garden is located in Bang Kachao Sub-District, Samut Prakan Province with an area over 200 Rai. This place was established for being the source production of fresh air, the public park for relaxing and exercising for the people. Also, it is a place for ecosystem education on plant species and animals both local and within nearby area. Therefore, it compares as one of an oasis for the city people who want to experience nature, the local way of life and escaping Bangkok’s chaos.

    The garden’s characteristic is a combination of public parks that the landscape has been arranged beautifully. It consists of aquatic plants, local plants that are able to grow within brackish water and preserve the original agricultural garden which was the original fruit garden. This park and botanical garden is a Greenfield that the government declared to be “the lungs of Bangkok.” A wooden bridge is for visitors to stroll on peaceful and shady area, including the 7 meters high tower view that can capture the whole scenery of this area. Other than the botanic garden, there is so Bang Nam Phueng Floating Market which opens every Saturday and Sunday (we visit this on our Weekend edition).

    Duration: 10 minutes

    Stop At: Wat Bang Nam Phueng Nok, Off Bua Bueng Phatthana, Phra Pradaeng 10130 Thailand

    Although we absolutely don't stop at every temple we pass by, there are some temples/sights stopping for and not mentioned in the list of "attractions" in the area. We'll stop at a local Hindu statue/temple, have a meal at a local restaurant and much much more. Let us surprise you
