Bangkok Paradise - 1 day boat & bike
With Bangkok Paradise™ Recreational Bangkok Biking Ltd. brings you to an undiscovered and unseen part of Bangkok, even for local people.
Like our Colors of Bangkok™ excursion, we avoid the main streets of Bangkok and use the maze of narrow alleys, small pathways and elevated concrete bicycle-lanes that make Bangkok so different from other metropolises.
During Bangkok Paradise™ you see the daily life of local people passing by. A boat and cycling adventure decorated with orchid farms, banana, papaya and mango trees that bring you to places where it seems like time has been standing still. Besides this, we see beautiful hidden temples. And as if that wasn't enough, we've also added an unrivalled long tail boat journey. Bangkok Paradise™ will add significant value to your stay in Bangkok.
What & Where? Within 45 minutes of our start, we arrive at a local fresh-market. While riding across the market we see widely differing goods from smoked pig heads to beautiful local flowers. A little further on our way, we stop at the remains of defense walls built during the Colonial Era to prevent Western countries occupying Thailand. We continue our route and make a short stop at a small factory where they produce the meat balls you see in many kinds of Thai soups. After 20 minutes more cycling, we arrive at the "Golden Temple". The journey continues over concrete pathways, through a scenic park and passes orchid farms before bringing us to the pier where long tail boats are waiting.
A spectacular canal trip brings us to the most southern district of Bangkok. It's difficult to believe that you're actually in Bangkok Metropolis, because it feels like you're hundreds of kilometers away from the city. We visit a small factory where the produce incense-sticks used at traditional Thai temples and stop at a typical Thai/Chinese flower-farm.
During the excursion we stop every hour for a short rest and to drink. If you love cycling, and enjoy nature, Bangkok Paradise™ will leave you with some unforgettable memories of Bangkok.
