There’s a lot more to Bangkok than concrete and tall buildings. Bike Bangkok’s Hidden Oasis will show you another side of the city, hidden away beneath the green foliage across the river. This area is known as Bang Krachao, the green lungs of Bangkok. You will get across the river by ferry and bike through nature and traditional wooden houses. It won’t even feel like 2018 anymore out here. You’ll pass mangroves, orchards, small villages, and local temples and in no time at all, you’ll complete the 20km stretch wishing that you could have spent more time in the greenery.
When they say “historic,” they mean historic. Travelers who want to see authentic local Thai life will get to do so on the Bike Historic Bangkok tour.

You’ll also get to stop and see quite a few cultural stops - the Thai custom of fish feeding, a stop at the royal barges, the Samakhom throne hall, and even to visit one of Thailand’s well-known universities. The last stop is the Golden Mount, where you can take in the spectacular sunset view from high above.
If you’re looking to visit some of Bangkok’s best temples, Go Gold’s Bangkok Temple Tour is one of the best.

Then, after passing through the historical Chinatown, you’ll reach the Phra Nakhon area and get to view temples like Wat Pho, Loha Prasat, and even Sanam Luang. You’ll get to cross the Chao Phraya river to take in the majestic Wat Arun, before finally heading back. If you want to take in as many temples as possible during a short trip, this tour is perfect.
The Co Classical 3-Hour Bicycle Tour is a wonderful way to see the way locals live their lives in the city. There won’t be any touristy nonsense here.

It’s definitely a change of pace, and it’ll give you a new look into the lives of the locals.
This tour combines two of the best things about travel - sightseeing and food. What better way to see Bangkok, right?

At the end of the tour, you’ll get to sit down to a fantastic dinner to fuel up after all that energy loss.
Siam Ratree Bangkok Night Tour
You can never get enough of Bangkok after dark. With this tour, you’ll get to see it in a completely different way - all lit up after vendors and people of the night come out after the sun goes down. There will be a stop at a temple, where you’ll take in the pungent smell of incense before smelling the delicious food scents from the street stalls all over town. You’ll get to visit the flower market, where people push around giant carts of beautiful flowers of the brightest colors. Cycling across the river, you’ll get a view Bangkok’s lights from a little further away. When you return back to your place of accommodation, it won’t be surprising if you are still dazzled and having trouble adjusting back to reality after a night out in Bangkok.
