Where to explore in the morning
What to do in the afternoon
The time is now close to midday, and it is incredible how many different sides of Bangkok you get to see in one morning. From world-famous temples and bustling markets, to the mundane day-to-day activities of local neighbourhoods, this tour will leave you with holiday’s worth of memories, all packed in to just half a day. Duration: The Chinatown bicycle tour runs from 08:00 to 12:00 midday, with frequent stops and all on flat terrain.
Back on the bikes again, and it’s a short ride to the river pier. Crossing the Chao Praya River offers a nice breather, a chance to quench your thirst and reapply sunscreen (you didn’t forget it, did you?). On the Thonburi side of the river, life is noticeably slower and the Chinese influence less prevalent. Roads are fringed by trees and birds can be heard tweeting overhead. The guide again proves his worth by looking for Thai herbs, such as lemongrass or basil, which he will pass around for everyone to smell. There is another stop after a few kilometers at a beautiful and little-known park, dedicated to the King’s Mother. It is immaculately maintained and in the centre is a small museum with interesting details relating to the Royal family. The guide will explain – in a lighthearted way – a brief history of Thailand’s royalty, starting at King Rama 5 (known and loved as the king who abolished slavery in Thailand), leading up to the reigning monarch.
