Descriptions of the Bangkok Canal Boat & Bike Tour


We gather near the Sam Yot subway station at 9:30 a.m. The tour will start at 10:30 a.m. sharp (please get off in advance, given the heavy traffic in Bangkok). Next, there will be a bike fitting and instruction. We will cycle from the main road through narrow streets, alleys and canals by boat to immerse ourselves in the heart of Bangkok.

Santa Cruz – the Portuguese community.

Take a ferry and bike to the settlements of Santa Cruz Wat Kalayanamit: Here, on the banks of the Chao Phraya River, Bangkok is believed to have originated. First, we will stop in Santa Cruz – the Portuguese community. Here we will go to a restaurant and try an original Portuguese cake. We will park our bikes at the first Christian community of Santa Cruz to get to know the descendants of the first Portuguese merchants who have been cooking Portuguese cupcake for more than 5 generations. Then we drive to the nearby Chinese-Thai Wat Kalayanamit Temple and the site of Bangkok's first Chinatown. Then we will visit a beautiful Chinese temple – Wat Kalayanamit and a holy chapel – Wat Hongrattanaram.

Artist’s Village

Cycling back lanes and pedaling along small tree-lined canals, we will arrive at an old wooden market with a historic community temple. Centuries ago, trading communities formed along the canals on the outskirts of Bangkok to buy the goods coming to market from the outlying farms and orchards. The former wealth of these trading communities can be seen in the elegant architecture of the temples they left behind.

A local Thai lunch by Bang Luang Canal

Enjoy a simple tasty Thai lunch in a local eatery by the canal in the grounds of the community temple. Thailand is known for its variety of spices and flavors and your meal will surely be a highlight of the day.

A walk along the canals and the Chao Phraya River

After stowing the bikes in the back of a long tail boat, you and your guide wend your way down the ancient canals to Chao Phraya River. Sailing up the River of the Kings, you will pass the Grand Palace before docking near Khaosan Road.

The end of the tour

We will be returning to the meeting place around 15:30.

Our itinerary includes a visit to the artist’s house and watching an interesting puppet theatre performance.
