Itinerary Details

A full day on bike, boat, and foot

Starting in Bangkok you'll drive south to start your bicycle exploration at Klong Lad Pli Floating market. Walking through Klong Lad Pli gives you a chance to see wooden houses perched on the edge of the canal, including one that once was an opium den. You'll arrive at Damneon Saduak floating market, the biggest and most colourful in Thailand and a must for any visitor. You'll then embark on a long tail boat and cruise through a maze of canals cutting through various plantations. This eye-opening boat ride offers a glimpse of Thailand of old with the canal as the focal point. You'll then get on the bikes and start a short ride to Wat Bang Kae Noi, a temple famous for its teakwood carving. The magnificent interior of the Ubosot, coronation room, is delicately carved to portray the story of Lord Buddha.

Your ride takes you further into coconut plantations and fruit orchards along quiet back roads. You'll stop to visit a quirky temple held up by a huge banyan tree. After lunch at a riverside restaurant you'll continue cycling on picturesque trails. After some refreshments, explore a temple complex and a local market before starting your journey back to Bangkok.
