For the rookies visiting Bangkok, this beautiful city is known for its dirt cheap shopping, sacred temples...and traffic jams. Which is why this bicycle tour is the best choice to explore Bangkok like a local. After a quick bike fitting and briefing you'll pedal your way through the back streets of suburban Bangkok, small lane-ways along the riverside, cross the famous Rama VIII bridge and then ride past a local community.
Since you're cutting past the busy highways, the path along Bangkok Noi Canal will lead you to your first destination, the Wat Arun temple. Known for its intricate architectural design and historical significance, the tour guide will brief you about what makes this temple a true beauty.
Take as many pictures as you can here, then get back on the cycle and across the river to Pranakorn, over the beautiful Memorial Bridge, and to the Wat Suhat temple. This temple is home to the largest golden seated Buddha in Thailand, so get your cameras ready.
But make haste as your final stop on this city bicycle tour is Sao Ching Cha, a giant swing that represents the movement of God Shiva. By the way, each part of this swing represents different parts of the earth. After this you'll head back to the bike shop, but if you haven't tired out from this 20km journey, simply ask your local guide for places to explore and continue on.
