bangkok night bike
Gather at the Grasshopper Shop *** Meeting time 17.30 PM.
Meet at the Grasshopper Adventures Shop near Khao San Rd at 17.30 pm. The tour will depart at 6 pm sharp, so make sure you allow plenty of time to get here, accounting for peak hour traffic. After a quick bike fitting and briefing it’s time to head out, staying off the main roads we’ll pedal our way through small laneways, past ancient temples and canals to see the heart and soul of Bangkok.
Cycle and ferry to Wat Arun
After passing through Thammasat University we cross the Chao Phraya River by ferry. Crossing the river around sunset can be quite lovely. Once across we cycle quiet back roads to Wat Arun, the Temple of the Dawn. At night, Wat Arun is spectacularly illuminated and free of the throngs of day tourists so you can enjoy the serene ambience of the temple.
Visit the Flower Market
Then next unforgettable stop is the world-famous Bangkok flower market. The largest wholesale flower market in Thailand.
Crossing the Chao Phraya bridge, we stop at the flower market which is at its busiest this time of night and the market is a riot of colour and activity. On the walk through your guide will treat you to some of Thailand’s famous street food.
Next on the route is Wat Pho, the renowned Temple of the Reclining Buddha. While the reclining Buddha is not visible to visitors in the evening the temple grounds are truly magical, with beautifully illuminated chedi spires covered in porcelain mosaics. Explore the peaceful temple grounds in the cool evening air – a vastly different scene from the noisy crowds found here during the day, it is almost like having a privileged private tour.
Return to the Grasshopper Shop
Biking on past the Grand Palace we find ourselves in Sanam Luang from which we can see the sparkling chedis of the palace. Cycling again through the back streets of Bangkok’s historic old city we’ll finish the evening’s bike tour back at our shop in the Khao San Road area.
Te evening bike tour usually takes 3-4 hours but is variable by group. Dinner is not included in the bike tour but we do include some fun and tasty street food snacks in the flower market.
