About this Cycle Tour
Get ready for an immersive cultural experience through Thai culinary traditions on our Bangkok Bike and Cook tour. Active and hands on, this tour will be truly enjoyable for your muscles and your taste buds!
Just across the Chao Phraya River, a short hop from busy Bangkok, we enter the inner city oasis. This amazing wilderness in Bangkok can best be reached by boat and incredibly it has been left untouched by developers. Crossing the river is like taking a journey back in time. You will find a peaceful place with lush vegetation, a maze of waterways, small villages, temples and real tropical jungle. Agriculture is one of the main sources of income for many of the inhabitants here and we will visit an orchard and vegetable farm to learn how Thai herbs and vegetables are grown. Then roll up your sleeves and get ready to prepare some classic Thai dishes like the locals do. Our friendly chef will share with you some tips and tricks of traditional Thai cuisine. You will be amazed how easy it is to cook these seemingly complex dishes. Then sit down and enjoy your creations. Bon appetit!
We ride about 20 kilometres in total. At the beginning of the ride there is a short busy section in the city before we cross the river. We then ride along very minor roads, pathways, through alleys, temples, gardens and tropical jungle. There are no hills. Some of the canal paths are elevated and quite narrow and we advise caution on these sections. If you are terrified of heights or otherwise unstable while riding a bike you might want to reconsider before booking this tour. Otherwise, it is a nice and easy ride!
We meet at the back parking lot of Suan Plearn Market on Rama IV Road. If taking the BTS you need to get off at Phromphong station, use exit 4 and walk straight to Sukhumvit Soi 26. Here you can take a motorcycle taxi or a regular taxi to Suan Plearn Market, distance is 2.6 km and it takes only 10 minutes traveling. We don't recommend walking.
