This amazing ‘Go Blue’ – Bangkok Bike and Longtail Boat combo Tour starts with a weaving bicycle ride through an historic and culturally rich Bang Rak. Bang Rak means “Village of Love” and is surely loved by our cyclists. Our first stop is at the Old Customs House where hundreds of years ago merchants would pay taxes on the good they were bringing from all over the world. Followed by cycling through a Muslim neighbourhood with Bangkok’s first Mosque we are well on our way into an adventure of a lifetime.
From there we will head north into the maze of winding alleys that combine to make up Bangkok’s Southern part of Chinatown. The adventure through this part of Chinatown will give you a unique look on how Thailand’s Chinese residents have lived and worked for centuries.
Not long from now we will embark on a ferry that takes us across the mighty Chao Phraya river into the Thonburi area. Thonburi was the former capital of Thailand with a abundance of culture to explore.
Next stop is the Princess Mother Park for refreshments and a pleasant look around the grounds and as you carry on along the river with amazing views watching the boats pass by. Wat Prayoon, Wat Kalayanamitr are next on the list
Having explored several Temple Grounds of the old Siam we will now embark on a long tail boat together with our bikes to enjoy a 7 km journey long-tail boat ride up to the starting point of the 2nd part of this fantastic Bike and Boat trip. Get your cameras ready as you are in for a treat seeing the Venice of the east up and close from the comfort of your boat seat.
Get on your bikes and explore lush Farmland, Green Oasis combined with daily life of Farmers and quiet temple grounds. The roads are quiet and consist merely of raised paths, narrow bridges and a few housing estates in the way. You are now truly away from the Bangkok Hussle and Traffic. Welcome to Paradise unseen!
Since its been about 3.5 hours into the ride the hunger is building up so its time for a delicious authentic Thai Lunch followed by a refreshing Cold drink at the all but Famous Thai Artist house. Here we can see and almost feel the life how is once was over 200 years ago in this incredible Teak Wooden house.
The Long Tail boat is waiting to take us back towards the Chao Phraya River via an even more picturistic canal than the first leg of this tour. Once we reach the Chao Phraya River with its amazing views we stop once again for the final legs of this amazing bicycle and boat tour.
Visiting a 200 year old warehouse and its final market stop we wave goodbye to the past and back into the current with a swift trip over the river and back to the HQ to unwind, relax and discuss the trip with complimentary free soft drinks, or even a refreshing beer.
Although a little more demanding than The Go Red Guided Tour, this tour is suited to people of most ages. The ride can be tricky as we face a few swift turns and balancing skills would make your trip more pleasant. There is a general laid back feel to everything, with plenty of refreshment stops for those that are comfortable on a bicycle.
