Bangkok biking Noise. Colors. Smells. Smiles. As we transcend through the streets with high-rise above and wheels below, freedom take us slowly by the back door to the river. We criss-cross it in between colorful long tail boats and small freighters. Then on the other side of the river, quietness except the sound of frogs and cicadas, a fine though small concrete track through mangrove, stilted houses, laid-back-ness, with a glimpse of Urban Bangkok Beyond. And when the boat man takes us across Chao Phraya river again, we flow back through micro lanes and hidden tracks twisting through backyards of wooden houses, so close to daily life that we can follow the TV-shows in the houses as we pass.

You'll also head through "Little Chinatown", where children enthusiastically wave and shout "hello" at the unusual sight of foreigners on bicycles.
We cross the Chao Praya river and enter an area called Phra Pradaeng, where we cycle on narrow elevated pathways through orchards and traditional Bangkok communities. While dining at a local home or restaurant, you will feel the hospitality for which Thais are known.
