ITINERARY

 In the heart of downtown Bangkok lies the always active and often mysterious district of Chinatown. Here, alleys disappear into forgotten temples, exotic markets spill onto the streets, and striking architecture spirals skyward. This tour exhibits Bangkok's authentic dichotomy where, within mere street blocks, the lively bustle of Chinatown melts into the soothing embrace of country back roads.

What do we see? The tour begins amidst the morning commotion of Chinatown. We'll explore the going-ons of a spirited street market before detangling ourselves (and our bikes) from the Chinatown hustle to find calmer surroundings. Crossing the mighty Chao Phraya River, our trail changes pace, bending gently through the back roads in the Thonburi district. Off the beaten track, we'll see lesser-known temples, markets, and sites, including the Princess Mother Memorial Park. A well-kept secret, the park sees few tourists despite its magnetizing ambiance and attractions. Among the park's arching branches stands a small museum, historically rich and well-worth the visit.

Back on the trail, we'll continue Santa Cruz catholic church and have a taste of Portuguese dessert from the recipe passed down for generations, ride to Bangkok favorite, Temple of the Dawn. This architecturally impressive structure features five towering prangs adorned by broken pieces of Chinese porcelain. Its construction symbolized an earthly version of the layers of heaven, and admirers attest that mystic spirit is evident still.

What is the riding like? This is a gentle 15-km ride that is suitable for any level. Experienced SpiceRoads cycle guides set a relaxed pace while leading the group through the activity of Chinatown and along quiet back roads. This is an excellent trip for families.

Of course, water, soft drinks, and snacks are all included. SpiceRoads also supplies a quality mountain bike and helmet.
