Bike Historic Bangkok

Bike Historic Bangkok reveals the true heart of old Bangkok. Cycle tour your way through back-alleys, over bridges, through busy markets and past ornate temples. Exploring the city by bike you quickly see that there is a lot more to Bangkok than busy traffic and high-rise buildings.

Pedaling the small alleys and lanes you will discover ancient temples and life by the Chao Phraya River and in the tiny lanes that make up much of the city. Many people ask us how we found our way through the maze of streets that we take you through - the answer is simple: we bike every little lane we can find and it has literally taken years to develop this tour. No-one knows historic Bangkok like us, and our Bike Historic Bangkok bike tour is the best way to explore this spectacular old quarter! We promise to take you places on a bike that you would never be able to find on your own.

Highlights

  • Exploring a very different side of Bangkok.

Itinerary

  • 08:30 Meet at the Grasshopper Adventures Shop near Khaosan Rd. The tour will depart at 9 am sharp. After a quick bike fitting and briefing we head out. Cycling through the heart of the backpacker area, Khaosan Road, you will soon be biking off the roads this bike tour winds through small laneways, past ancient temples and canals to see the heart and soul of Bangkok.
  • There are no particularly famous sights that you will see on this bike tour. It is all about exploring the city by bike away from the tourists and big roads, to see the real Bangkok where people live, work and play. We cycle along the Chao Phraya River and then pedal cross the river on the Rama 8 Bridge. From here we visit ancient temples and urban street life.
  • Bangkok Noi is the name given to a large canal of the Chao Phraya River. Bike along the canal through tiny alleyways home to a Muslim community. After cycling over a bridge you bike the canal back the other way, this time passing Buddhist temples and one of Bangkok’s first train depots. If open you are in luck to visit a bronze bowl foundry and the old steam engines at the Thonburi train depot - such is the diversity of the city when you get in close.
  • After a local ferry to cross back over the river, our bike tour passes the Grand Palace where we take a walk through a public park that was once exclusively used by the royal family. After cycling more twisting alleyways, pedaling through a food market, you bike past rows of Buddhas and other sacred images. The area around the Giant Swing isis where Buddha images are made and sold. The Giant Swing is one of the landmarks of the city and was once used for an important Hindu ceremony.
