Bangkok is best-known for shopping, nightlife, and its heavily trafficked roads. However, Bangkok’s lesser-known side can only be discovered by mobile tours on bicycles, via tuk-tuk, or on cruise, which many visitors have yet to try.
Exploring Bangkok needs not be on foot. Mobile tours bring you to more places in one go; they are usually two to four hours long and cover main attractions or lesser-known lanes with experienced local guides. You have at least five different choices of mobile tours to take you freely along ever-congested roads on a sunset tour.
At night, Bangkok’s roads are most friendly to those who want to explore Bangkok by bike or by tuk-tuk. You can also visit more places and eat more varieties of food than just walking around. Cruising on the river allows you to view the city from afar.
If you aim for food, sightseeing, or just for private tour, from the easiest to the most luxurious, your experience in Bangkok is never static.
This 4-hour sunset cycling tour takes you through Bangkok’s back streets, from Chinatown to the Golden Mount to riverside park, watch the sunset behind the Temple of Dawn, then ride past the Buddhist temples to Bangkok’s largest amulet market. Since this tour covers the city’s most iconic sights, you may save the day for other attractions. Cycling on roads at night is cooling and special; you will discover the new face of Bangkok at night.
