Description

From 3:30pm, we pick you up at your hotel in Bangkok and transfer to the center of the city. From there, we make our way through alleyways to Wat Saket, also known as the Golden Mount. The golden chedi sits atop an artificial hill and 318 steps will take you to the top where you’ll have view of where we’ll be riding. From the base of the hill, we ride through the temple and into the Ban Bat community where alms bowls for the monks were once made. Next stop will be Wat Suthat – the temple of the Giant Swing – one of the oldest and largest temples in Bangkok and is famed for its huge golden Buddha, magnificent frescoes. We continue cycling through hidden alleyways and end up at replica of an old drawbridge. Once across the canal, we ride on the road to the famous Phat Khlong flower market. Though busiest pre-dawn, it is open 24 hours and you’ll see a variety of flowers from roses to orchids in a rainbow of colors, as well as some creative arrangements. Back on the bike, we ride to an almost forgotten oasis of Nakraphirom Park in time to watch the sunset over Wat Arun – the Temple of Dawn. This striking tower of this riverside landmark is covered with thousands of pieces of multicolored Chinese porcelain. Once we have had our fill, we ride pass the Grand Palace and see the remaining sunlight hit the golden roofs. We’ll ride through the amulet market as they are closing and soon we’ll be on a small riverside path, with a perfect view of the Pinklao Bridge. We’ll take a break at the park that surrounds the octagonal Phra Sumeru Fortress, truly twist and turn through some back roads to wind up at Wat Indra Viharn that boasts a 30-meter-high statue of Buddha that is brilliantly lit up at night. We pass the Marble Temple on our way to Government Houses, and ride past the shimmering Wat Ratchanada and Loha Prasat – a multi-tiered structure with 37 metal spires on our way back to Chinatown. From there, our driver takes you back to your hotel. End trip around 8:00pm.
