This amazing ‘Go Green’ – Bangkok Bike and Cooking Combo Tour starts with an amazing walk through Bangkok’s oldest wet market. Your guide will explain the ingredients to be used during the cooking class later that day. Once on the bike we will weave our bikes through an historic and culturally rich Bang Rak. Bang Rak means “Village of Love” and is surely loved by our cyclists.
Our first stop is at the Old Customs House where hundreds of years ago merchants would pay taxes on the goods they were bringing from all over the world. You’ll then cycle through a Muslim neighbourhood where Bangkok’s first Mosque is situated and we will be well on our way into the adventure of a lifetime, but not before we stop at the 2nd market of the day, located behind the historical Post Office Building. Here we will park up the bikes and have a stroll around.
From there you’ll weave through the maze of woven streets that make up Bangkok’s vibrant and bustling Chinatown. Following your well-informed guide through the diverse cultures that make up this lively part of the city, you’ll discover all it has to offer.
After taking in the culture from Chinatown, it’s time to move on toward the river to get some cool air while absorbing gorgeous the sights and smells of the flower & vegetable markets.
