Just across the Chao Phraya River, you can find the so called Bang Kra Jao. It is only a short hop from busy Sukhumvit and is an extraordinary place. This amazing untouched wild in Bangkok can only be reached by boat as no bridges span this part of the river. Indeed, it has been incredibly left untouched by developers.
Crossing the river is like taking a journey back in time. You will find a place with lush vegetation, a maze of waterways, small villages, temples and real tropical jungle. You would actually never believe you are so close to the city. And, there is no traffic!
You will ride through the local communities, temples and schools. You will continue on to a delightful floating market (open weekends only) and have a snack break. Then, you will visit a fascinating temple, built in the Ayutthaya period, which is more than 250 years old. This temple has a unique roof made of teak wood and windows and shutters are painted in ancient Mon-style. After, you will cycle on to the relaxing Sri Narkon park and feed the fish in the pavilion, built for Princess Sirinthorn's visit.
The ride is about 25 kilometers. The ride starts on Sukhumvit Road and there is a short section in the city before you cross the river. We then ride along , pathways, very minor roads, through alleys, temples, gardens and tropical jungle. There are no hills. Some of the canal paths are elevated and quite narrow and it is important to advise caution on these sections. If you are terrified of heights or otherwise unstable while riding a bike you might want to reconsider before booking this tour.
