Day 2 | Bangkok - Bicycle Tour (B, small meal)
After a quick bicycle fitting we start with our Bangkok bicycle adventure. On our journey we make multiple stops at different places beginning with meeting the poorest community in bangkok, followed by a quick visit to the kindergarten within the slums, we next make our way to the pier stopping at a local sweatshop on route. Upon arriving at the pier we board a typical Thai long tail boat to cross the mighty Chao Phraya river.
At the other side of the river we find ourselves back in the ‘Jungle’ or the ‘Green Lung’ of Bangkok, the greenest area in the city. We cycle on elevated pathways through lush vegetation and in the shade of coconut palms and banana trees. We take a short break at a local restaurant and provide a small Thai meal, Pad Thai (Thai noodles) or Khao Pad (fried rice).
After our meal we visit a very old, non-touristy Buddhist temple where your guide will tell you about the history of the temple and of budhism as a whole.
This culminates the end of the tour and the time has come to return to the pier where we take a short boat ride back to the hustle and bustle of Bangkok again.
But before we arrive in the city we make a last stop at an open-air Muay Thai school. Muay Thai, or Thai Boxing, is the national sport and cultural martial art of Thailand and its origin dates back several hundred years.
You don’t need to be a cycling fanatic to join the excursion. The pace is relaxed and we make enough stops for taking pictures, explanation of sights, something to drink and relax.
After the bicycle tour. You will be transferred back to your hotel. Here you will get time to rest at your own leisure.
