Colors of Bangkok

Colors of Bangkok, our popular half day cycling in Bangkok tour, takes participants through a part of the Thai capital which they will never see on their own. Biking in Bangkok’s green lung gives the participants the feeling they are miles out of town yet, the hustle & bustle of the town is very near.

A part where there is almost no traffic, just narrow streets and backyards. Bangkok as you have never imagined!

After a quick bicycle fitting we start with our Bangkok bicycle adventure.

The first part of our journey is on Rama III Road, where our office/lounge is located. But only for a few minutes because the ferryboat to cross the river isn’t far away. While standing on the riverbanks of the Chao Praya River you will be impressed by the many loops that are running in and out the Bhumibol Bridges I & II at 40 meters height.

Once at the other side of the river we find ourselves in Bangkrachao sub-district. Bangkokians also call this area “The Green Lung of Bangkok” or “Bangkok’s Green Jungle”. It’s the biggest & greenest area near the city. (Bangkrachao is about 16 KM2) Here we cycle on elevated pathways through lush vegetation and in the shade of coconut palms and banana trees. Recognize any plants from home? They are sure a whole lot bigger, aren’t they? green lung or in the ‘Jungle’ of Bangkok, the greenest area near the city.

The first stop in Bangkrachao is a local, non-touristy Buddhist temple (Wat Bang Krasop) with a history dating 700 years back. Mind your head when stepping inside the old temple. Doors/entrances, especially the very old ones, didn’t expect visitors that tall. If time and the principal allow us, we will pay a short visit to the elementary school next to the temple to say hello to the children.

We continue the bicycle ride deeper into the jungle until we reach a Muay Thai boxing gym. Here we’ll show/tell you about this national sport and perhaps we’ve a boxing enthousiast among us that is keen taking a short lesson from the master. (a tip to the master of 2 Euro/US$ is not mandatory but common and very much appreciated)

We continue our ride crossing a market (when open), the beautiful Srinakonkhenkan park and make another stop at Ganesh, a Hindu god, where the guide will tell how this is adapted by the Thai Buddhists.

During the ride we will also make a stop at a local restaurant to offer you a typical Thai meal like “Pad Thai” or “Kao Pad” (Fried noodles or fried rice) which can be with shrimps, crab, pork, chicken or vegetarian. Tell our guide your preference.

After our meal, time has come to return to the pier where we take the ferry back to the hustle and bustle of Bangkok again.

Participants on our Colors of Bangkok bicycle tour will learn and see how daily life passes by for Bangkokians. We take you off the beaten track and show you a different Bangkok, a ‘local’ Bangkok, far away from the well-known tourist areas.
We set out a route which is traffic free for the majority, so you can fully enjoy the ride and the surroundings.
You don’t need to be a cycling fanatic to join the excursion. The pace is relaxed and we make enough stops for taking pictures, explanation of sights, something to drink and relax.
Colors of Bangkok will be an amazing Bangkok biking experience for young and old!
