This is a city that cannot be done justice by a printed travel guide Bangkok, Thailand’s vibrant capital sees more tourist footfall each year than any other city in the world and a closer look will explain why. The rambling metropolis is famous for its shrines of glistening gold, mouthwatering street food and intricately woven canals that are cleverly used for transport and trade. The city is not lacking in luxury malls, restaurants serving fine cuisine nor star class hotels like the Anantara Bangkok Sathorn that come complete with the famed Thai hospitality.
A great way to explore the city is to take a bike tour. The bike paths will steer you away from the congested streets of Bangkok and along the less crowded back roads. On a typical tour you will visit temples that feature traditional architecture and have the opportunity to witness the beauty of the Chaopraya River by sailing on it in a long-tail boat. The scenic paths will guide you down tree lined laneways, through lush green parks and show you the natural beauty that exists away from the city’s concrete buildings and fluorescent lights.
A tour guide will strive to give you an authentic Thai experience that usually includes at least one traditional Thai meal. You can expect fully functioning bikes and sturdy helmets to be provided by the company. Several bike tour companies exist and offer a range of options from which visitors may choose. You can select the length of the tour according to your fitness and comfort level. Day-long tours will include stops at local markets and other popular venues as well as the usual attractions. Most tour companies are listed and also reviewed online. You also have the option of booking ahead through a website and discounts can be expected for larger groups.
