- What You Can Expect -

Starting in Bangkok we drive south to start our bicycle exploration of the Mae Klong Delta area at Klong Lad Pli Floating market. Walking through Klong Lad Pli gives us a chance to see wooden houses perched on the edge of the canal including one that once was an opium den. We arrive at Damneon Saduak floating market, the biggest and most colourful in Thailand and a must for any visitor. Purchase just about anything from the vast array of “shops” on the river.

After discovering the sights and sounds of the floating market, we embark on along tail boat and cruise through a maze of canals cutting through local villages and various plantations. This eye-opening boat ride offers a glimpse of Thailand of old where local people are going about their daily life with the canal as the focal point.

Hop off a long tail boat and get on our saddles. Start a short ride to Wat Bang Kae Noi, the temple is famous for its teak wood carving. The magnificent teak wood interior of the Ubosot, coronation room, is delicately carved to portray the story of Lord Buddha.

Our ride takes us further into coconut plantations and fruit orchards along quiet back roads. We stop to visit an Unseen Thailand at Wat Bang Kung, a quirky temple held up by a huge banyan tree. After lunch at a riverside restaurant we continue cycling on picturesque trails.

After some refreshments, explore a temple complex and a local market before starting our journey back to Bangkok to beat rush hour.This 30-35km trip is suitable for levels of riders and is an excellent trip for families.
