As described by SpiceRoads Cycle Tours: “Just across the Chao Phraya River, a short hop from busy Bangkok, is an extraordinary place known to the locals as Bang Kra Jao. This amazing wilderness in Bangkok can best be reached by boat and incredibly it has been left untouched by developers.

Crossing the river is like taking a journey back in time. You will find a peaceful place with lush vegetation, a maze of waterways, small villages, temples and real tropical jungle.
If it weren't for Bangkok's skyline, you would never believe you were so close to the city. And, there is very little traffic!”

On this Bangkok adventure, SpiceRoads will lead us on a guided bike ride through local communities, passing villages, schools, and temples, and a delightful floating market (open on weekends only). On our journey we'll be introduced to the various flowers and fruits growing along the path, and stop for refreshments along the river, before visiting a fascinating 250-plus-year-old temple with a unique teak roof built in the Ayutthaya period.

We will ride about 25 kilometers in total. At the beginning of the ride there is a short busy section in the city before we cross the river.
We will then ride along very minor roads, pathways, through alleys, temples, gardens, and tropical jungle. There are no hills. SpiceRoads advises some of the canal paths are elevated and quite narrow, so caution is advised on these sections. If terrified of heights or otherwise unstable while riding a bike, you might want to reconsider before joining this tour. Other­wise, it is a nice and easy ride.

Included in the cost: bike rental, helmets, ferry rides, entrance fees. water and snacks, English speaking guide(s), accident insurance.
