Half Day Rickshaw Adventure Tour From Bangkok

Falling coconuts, papaya groves, Buddhist temples, nine-foot-long pythons and miles of bike-friendly elevated sidewalks snaking through the jungle: Welcome to Bang Krachao, a smog-free, government-protected oasis of green that the mighty Chao Phraya River wraps around.

This verdant island is all the more remarkable because it is across the river from Bangkok. The contrast between “Bangkok’s Green Lung,” as the palm-choked, lung-shaped Bang Krachao is known for and the concrete jungle on the opposite bank could not be more striking. Downtown Bangkok’s central Silom business district is only about six miles away.

• Take a tuk-tuk to the pier
• Cross the Chao Phraya river by long-tail boat

    Stop At: Queen Sirikit National Convention Center, 60 New Rachadapisek Road, Bangkok 10110 Thailand

    This unique half day excursion starts every day at 08:00 & 13:00 hrs from MRT Station Queen Sirikit (Exit number 1).

    Duration: 30 minutes

    Stop At: Khlong Toei Market, Rama IV Road Khlong Toei, Khlong Toei, Bangkok 10110 Thailand

    First we walk to the largest fresh market in the Thai capital, Talat Klongtoey, which is also one of the most authentic markets in the city. It attracts all kind of shoppers from street food vendors to chefs from some of Bangkok’s best hotel restaurants. The market is almost like a small town inside a city with a network of stalls selling everything from fresh fruit, herbs and vegetables, meat, and insects to live frogs, ducks, chickens, clothes and countless other items in between.

    Duration: 30 minutes

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

    After our visit to the market we continue by tuk-tuk for a short ride to the pier where we board a longtail boat to cross the Chao Phraya River, the ‘River of Kings’.

    Duration: 30 minutes

    Stop At: Kung Bangkachao, Phra Pradaeng 10130 Thailand

    As soon as we 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! Still undiscovered by most tourists, here you hear the birds singing instead of the traffic sounds of busy Bangkok!

    Typical Thai samlors (bicycle taxis) are waiting for us here to explore the 'Green Lung' or 'Bangkok Jungle'.

    While sitting in the samlor you get a good impression how the local people live their life here, far away from the crowded and well-known tourist areas. You will get the feeling that Thailand's capital city is hundreds of kilometers away!

    We ride along banana trees and coconut plantations, passing local houses on stilts and make a stop at a non-touristy Buddhist temple. At a local restaurant we will enjoy a delicious Thai meal (Pad Thai – Thai noodles or Khao Pad – fried rice) before we continue to a well-maintained public park where we will feed the fish. If you’re lucky, you might see some of the famous residents of this park, the huge monitor lizards! Although they look scary, they’re actually harmless.


    Duration: 1 hour

    Stop At: Queen Sirikit National Convention Center, 60 New Rachadapisek Road, Bangkok 10110 Thailand

    Unfortunately it’s time to return to the pier and cross the river again to busy Bangkok. At the other side the guide will assist you finding a taxi back to your hotel.
