Enjoy a refreshing drink stop before cycling to the pier where you will board a longtail boat with your bike and cross the Chao Praya River to reach Bangkok's green heart. Leave the hustle and bustle of the city behind as you cycle through beautiful lush green natural areas on elevated pathways, an area that was once home to old plantations. Observe the contrasts of this great city as you keep an eye out for the occasional sunbathing turtle or skittish lizard.

Stop to rest up with another cold drink and snack before returning to the longtail boat. Enjoy the view of Bangkok's skyline as you ride back across the river after an invigorating morning tour.
