Experience the magic of Bangkok as you bike and boat through the intricate network of the Mae Klong River canals. Immerse yourself in the traditional lifestyle of the Thais who live and work on the water, check out floating markets, and admire temples set amid lush plantations on this guided tour.
Embark on your full-day tour at the colorful Damnoen Saduak floating market. Walk through stalls peddling authentic Thai street foods and local produce, then hop on a longtail boat to cruise between riverside and floating stands as your guide shares the history of the floating markets and the complex waterways carved into the Mae Klong delta. Drift down the canals, passing by agricultural areas and villages where locals go about their daily life on and around the water.
Fuel up with a delicious lunch at a riverside restaurant, then hop on your bike to begin your 20-mile (32-km) excursion through the countryside. Pedal toward the Buddhist temple of Wat Amphawan, and step inside to marvel at the gold reclining Buddha in the ornately decorate ubosot ordination hall.
Continue riding leisurely along shaded paths, country lanes, and by guava, lychee, and coconut plantations to the fascinating temple of Wat Bang Kung, overgrown and engulfed by a giant banyan tree. The final temple stop on your bike ride is at Wat Bang Kae Noi, renowned for its teak woodcarvings depicting the life of Buddha—admire the breathtaking woodwork before your return trip to the city center.
