This is a unique way of discovering the history and development of The City of Angels as we cycle our way along the timeline of Bangkok.
This tour follows the path of the formation and development of Bangkok. You'll experience ancient temples and small communities where the traditional ways are still maintained. Most people are surprised that just across the river, many locals still conduct their lives on the waterways in dugouts and paddle boats.
This tour will show you a different side to Bangkok that you would normally not experience on your own and leave you with a new perspective of Bangkok and Thai people.
Most of the route follows back roads, hidden pathways and little lanes where friendly people go about their daily lives. At times you'll feel like you're riding through their kitchens and living rooms.

We start with a leisurely ride through the backpacker area on route to one of the landmark temples of Bangkok, from which you get a bird’s eye view of the City of Angels. From here we continue on to the Chao Phraya river, passing by the Giant Swing, a crazy fresh market and serene park.
Once at the river we’ll cross by means of a ferry then step back in time as we explore a community based industry to see what exquisite wares they produce with basic rudimentary tools. We continue through little ally ways and old communities built on and over the river, with a short snack break followed by a ride over the magnificent Rama VIII bridge back to modern Bangkok. The total ride time is 16kms.
