Our 5-hour bicycle and boat tour will reveal the different faces of Bangkok. From the exploration of bustling Chinatown to the quiet, forgotten, and green plantations. In between, we explore the ‘Venice of the East’ by longtail-boat and enjoy a tasty Thai-style meal.
Experience all of the wonders of Co’s Classical tour by cycling through Chinatown’s frenetic market environment. We take our bike through narrow alleyways and small side streets. Then allow classic longtail boats to transport us further into rural Bangkok. Discover why this city is often designated “Venice of the East” as our cruise introduces us to the charming canal lifestyle of Thais, much as it existed in bygone eras. Scenes of classical wooden-framed homes on stilts, mothers doing their daily washings, and kids splashing away the tropical heat will captivate us with their innocence and congeniality.
Following this pleasant break, our cycle tour continues through luscious green belts as we explore the forgotten plantations of this great city. Surprising not only in their beauty, but in their proximity to the sprawling metropolis, this tranquil ride will leave us pleasantly refreshed for our equally enthralling journey back to Chinatown.
We cycle at a leisurely pace and make frequent stops at local, interesting destinations along the way. Children as young as five years and seniors as old as 80 years have joined our tour with no issues. That being said, we do cycle through narrow alleyways and upon raised footpaths over water, so a certain level of balance and comfort on a bike is required.
