Take an adventure into the wilderness of Bangkok on a visit to the inner city of oasis of Bang Kra Jao. Best reached by boat, this island is often referred to as the “green lung” of Bangkok and incredibly, has been left untouched by city developers.
Just across the Chao Phraya River, a short hop from busy Bangkok, is an extraordinary place known to the locals as Bang Kra Jao. This amazing wilderness in Bangkok can best be reached by boat and incredibly it has been left untouched by developers.
Crossing the river is like taking a journey back in time. You will find a peaceful place with lush vegetation, a maze of waterways, small villages, temples and real tropical jungle. If it wasn’t for Bangkok’s skyline, you would never believe you were so close to the city. And, there is very little traffic! We ride through the local communities passing villages, schools and temples (there are over 30 temples in this area) and a delightful floating market (open on weekends only). On our journey we’ll introduce you to the various flowers and fruits growing along the path and stop for refreshments on the river before we visit a fascinating temple built in the Ayutthaya period that is more than 250 years old and has a unique roof made of teak wood.
We ride about 20 kilometres in total. At the beginning of the ride there is a short busy section in the city before we cross the river. We then ride along very minor roads, pathways, through alleys, temples, gardens and tropical jungle. There are no hills. Some of the canal paths are elevated and quite narrow and we advise caution on these sections. If you are terrified of heights or otherwise unstable while riding a bike you might want to reconsider before booking this tour. Otherwise, it is a nice and easy ride!
