Floating Markets & Backroads by Bike
- Full Day
You will be picked up at 07:00. Escape from the buzz of Bangkok for an adventure by bike and boat. Travel south of the city to the Mae Klong Delta area and visit Lad Plee Floating Market. Walk through the market to see wooden houses perched on the edge of the canal including one that once was an opium den. Continue to Damnoen Saduak, Thailand’s biggest and most famous floating market. Although quite touristy, it remains the best example of a traditional floating market with dozens of boat stalls selling local snacks, fresh fruits and dry goods. These days there are also many stalls on land selling souvenirs but it is still a fascinating place to wander and take photos.

After discovering the sights and sounds of the floating market, embark on a long-tail boat to cruise a maze of canals cutting through local villages and various plantations. This eye-opening boat ride offers a glimpse of Thailand of old where locals are going about their daily life with the canal as the focal point. After the boat ride, hop on the bikes and ride to Wat Bang Khae Noi, a temple famous for its teakwood carvings. Spend time examining the interior of the Ubosot, or coronation room, which features intricate carvings portraying the story of Lord Buddha.

Continue the cycle tour of Bangkok passing through coconut plantations, fruit orchards and along quiet back roads. Stop often for photos and to explore Wat Bang Kung, a quirky temple held up by a huge banyan tree.

Take a rest at midday and enjoy lunch at a scenic riverside restaurant. Then it’s back on the bikes for more riding on picturesque trails toward Amphawa Floating market. Explore this colourful canal side market and its nearby temples before returning to Bangkok. (L)
