About this Cycle Tour

Away from the city sites and sounds lies Bang Kra Jao, the “green lung” of Bangkok, a tucked away green oasis with fresh air, jungle scenery, and local communities living a more traditional way of life. If it weren't for the city skyline, you would never believe you're still within Bangkok city limits! On this Bangkok bicycle tour, venture beyond the tourist track, on to exhilarating elevated canal pathways, and into jungle scenery dotted with bright tropical flowers.

  • Meet at the back parking lot Suan Plern Market at 8:15 for morning departures or at 12:45 for afternoon departures. More info below.
  • Cross the river by ferry and venture into Bang Kra Jao, where city streets begin to change to natural, green scenery.
  • Take a deep breath of fresh air at Sri Nakhon Khuean Khan Park & Botanic Garden, a green oasis offering an escape from the city sites and smells.
  • Pedal through lush tropical vegetation, passing through local communities living a slower, traditional pace of life.
  • Visit the 250 year old Wat Bang Nan Phueng community temple, nestled in this lush, green area.
  • On weekend departures, visit Bang Nam Phueng Floating market Bangkok’s lesser known floating market largely undiscovered by tourists. We allow time to visit and eat at this unique market, a popular weekend activity for locals.

The total ride is about 20 kilometers starting with a short section in the city before crossing the river. From there it's a combination of minor roads and elevated pathways, through temple gardens and tropical jungle with no hills. The elevated canal pathways may not be suitable for those afraid of heights, but we think they add to the adventure!

Meeting Point

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.

Reviews

It’ was truly amazing experience. We got a private tour across Khlong Toei and Bang Kachao across the river. I highly recommend this trip if you like to see some real life Bangkok away from any tourists. Trip was well prepared and organized. Extremely welcome staff will guide you and explain everything form Thai culture or customs. Bikes are very comfortable and well maintained. Tracks are easy and available for almost everyone. Some parts on the island are without safety barriers but it’s nothing that average biker can’t handle. I honestly can’t find any downside of this trip. In my opinion there is no better way to explore Bangkok in active way. Thai hospitality included !

Very nice tour out of the big city Bangkok and into the jungle over the river. The tour was great fun, the guide was very good English and was absolutely outstanding for his humor :). You stop at a market and can try local food - it was great! The bikes are very good, there is also water for participants.

Tip: The morning tour is not that hot.
