Bangkok is a city of two halves - the packed metropolis with its commercial districts, gleaming skyscrapers and the exotica of Khao San Road; and the more sedate, traditional communities where Thai culture continues as it has done for centuries. This well-curated tour takes you through busy Chinatown, with its intriguing sights, sounds and aromas, to the canal region, where you will discover why Bangkok is often called “the Venice of the East.” Here you’ll board a typical long-tail boat, passing homes on wooden stilts and many pleasant scenes of domestic activity that your guide will happily interpret for you.
Following the comfortable longboat ride you’ll return to your bikes for a lovely journey through Bangkok’s green belt, quiet patches of open space a world away from the hubbub of the city centre. After a tasty light lunch you’ll return to Chinatown refreshed, exercised and content.
