Bangkok Klong (Canal) Boat & Bike Tour

Bike tour through historic Bangkok, exploring hidden sights off the tourist trail and away from traffic, then return by boat on Bangkok’s famous scenic canals. A great tour for children and families.

Cycle the hidden alleyways of Bangkok through the historic Rattanakosin Island to cross the Chao Phraya River by ferry and check out “Old Bangkok.” From there, you’ll pedal to some seriously impressive temples and an old market community for an authentic cultural experience.

Take in a Thai puppet show you can’t see anywhere else before stepping into a longtail boat to enter a maze of canals with some great views of the city. Float up the Chao Phraya River past the Grand Palace and the Temple of Dawn before pedaling back to where the tour began.

With so many activities this makes a great family tour for a day's outing in Bangkok!

    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.

Marvel at a show of the most unique puppetry you may ever see, as the art is combined with traditional Khon dance by the Hoon Lek puppeteers. The modern inhabitants of the old wooden trading houses these days sell artwork and vintage crafts as well as fish food for you to feed the abundant fish in the canal.

    Return to the Grasshopper Shop
    Once you’ve disembarked from the boat with your bike, we’ll pedal a short distance back to the Grasshopper shop to finish the tour around 3:30 pm. The bike tour usually takes 4 - 5 hours but this is variable by group. Lunch is included in the bike tour.

    Most of the day’s riding is on quiet back streets to avoid the crazy city traffic. The sun can be quite hot, so sunblock is recommended. Men and women need to cover their shoulders in order to enter temples and mosques, and women need to cover their knees as well. We recommend bringing a simple sarong for this purpose.

    Duration: 30 minutes
