Bangkok Night Bike Tour

02 Jul 2017

Cycle around Bangkok after dark, and experience a different side to the city. Using back lanes and quiet streets, explore 2 of Bangkok’s most famous temples, beautifully lit up in the cool night air and when they are free of crowds.

Get off the beaten track and explore Bangkok on 2 wheels on this 4-hour night bike tour. Departing after sunset, you will ride down quiet back roads and small lanes to visit 2 ancient temples. Discover how beautiful the historic center of Bangkok is at night, when its many temples are spectacularly illuminated, the temperatures are cooler and the places you visit are much quieter.

After meeting your guide at the Grasshopper Adventure Shop near Khao San Road, you will get a quick briefing and bike fitting, with all necessary equipment provided. You can get your hands on one of your own from ebike for sale in various shops across the town. Wind your way down small lanes, past ancient temples and canals, to experience the heart and soul of Bangkok.

You will pass Tammasat University and catch a local ferry across the Chao Phraya River to ride along the quiet back roads that lead to Wat Arun (Temple of Dawn). Enjoy the quiet ambiance of the temple before riding along a riverside track, passing more temples and churches.

Cross back over the Choa Phraya River by bridge and stop at the famous flower market, which is at its busiest at night. Sample some of the local delights from the many street stalls and soak up the vivid colors of the flowers. Continue to Wat Pho, and view the 4 burial stupas of the first 4 kings of the Bangkok kingdom.

You will then cycle back to the start point, past the Grand Palace and Sanam Luang, which comes to life in the evening with a daily market all laid out on simple mats.
