Evening Biking Bangkok at night
Bangkok at night
At night, Bangkok takes on another persona, one filled with life, laughter and light. Our evening
cycling tour through one of the capitol’s older parts moves where no car has gone before
as you pedal along local temples, communities and various markets.
WHY THIS TOUR?
Void of any bumper-to-bumper situation while moving from one site to the other, cycling often brings customers to the hidden parts of the capital city where time have stood still and we’re able to shine our bike lights on the authentic part of Bangkok. It is with such tours and travel options that new regions are visible and where we move away from the crowd in search for something truly local.
Thailand’s capital is more than just its shopping centres and ample choices for a great evening out. Let’s spice up your evening with a just-after-sunrise bike tour through the older side of this mesmerizing city.
18:00 - 22:00
Your bike for the evening waits for your arrival at the central meeting point, just outside the old part of Bangkok. As transfers from your accommodation to this meeting point are not included in this package, we advise you to get to this point in time to arrive before 17:30 hrs at our bicycle starting point. A team of mechanics are standing by, alongside your English-speaking guide ensure that you will get the bike adjusted to your personal needs in time before heading out in the unknown side of Thailand’s capital. With instructions on safety and not losing your biking guide, off we go into the back alleys of Bangkok. Our well-inspected trail moves safely into the night as you pass by local homes, alleys filled with local delicacies and children making their final playing round before heading to bed.
Alongside pedalling along one of the city’s oldest parts, small community temples tend to brighten up around every corner you go: the natural light of the departing sun makes way for a vast array of lights, turning these religious sites in an almost fairy tale landscape. Cycling in the evening also brings out shop owners and markets with a cornucopia of delicious snacks and refreshing drinks which serve as a perfect break during this 4-hour bike ride. Especially a stop at a flower market will be one of the highlights of this tour.
Via an ingenious route, we end our evening bike ride back where we started and thank our guide for his excellence in navigating through the back alleys of unknown Bangkok. Time to head back to your accommodation or perhaps wander through this little-visited part of Bangkok for a night cap and sharing your experiences with your travel companion(s).
