Enjoy a cool, fun and a fabulous way to see Bangkok when the sun is about to set. The sunset evening bike ride takes customers from one side of the Chao Phraya River to the other via back roads, small alleys and sights, seen from a different perspective.
What to Expect
Your driver will pick you up from your hotel and you will be brought to the central meeting point near the Chao Phraya River where your bike will be adjusted for a comfortable ride. The bicycle tour is a gentle pedaling tour, at a recreational pace, with plenty of stops included.
The tour usually starts with a local ferry crossing from the Bangkok side to the Thonburi side. You will hit the back streets and alleys with your bicycle for a relaxing ride as you slowly see the sun setting. The first stop will be the local Klong San market before you pedal along a Chinese pagoda, perched on the river bank. The inside of this 8-story pagoda are finished in granite and bronze. The windows have delicate etched designs of birds and other animals.
Your next stop will be a food-only market, located in a quiet neighborhood. To get a taste of some of the delicacies sold here, you include a quick bite at one of the food stalls. Your guide will be at your disposal to explain the ins and outs of the cooked food and the ingredients used.
Via the riverbanks, you reach the amazing Temple of Dawn – Wat Arun. It’s almost magical the way Wat Arun is lit and gives you a totally new impression of this landmark. A light dinner will be served near the temple before you move on. Wat Rakhang Khositaram will be your final stop at the Thonburi side before you cross back to Bangkok by local ferry and head towards the Sanam Luang (The Royal Fields) and the Grand Palace (no entry included, the Grand Palace will be closed upon your arrival). Head straight to the nearby Wat Pho for a visit and a stroll the temple compound, bathing beautifully from the well-lit illuminations that surround the Wat Pho.
You continue the ride to “Pak Klong Talad” or the famous Flower market. You’ll see a kaleidoscope of bright colors as vendors just receiving fresh floral goods from every corner of Thailand, The market is open 24 hours and at night, the trade of flowers really steams up! The next stop you are back to your central meeting where the Bangkok Sunset Ride ends and you have to say goodbye or be transferred back to your hotel. Your driver will bring you back to your hotel at around 22:30.
