See a different side of Bangkok, starting only a few minutes from famous Khao San Road we are easy to find. On this 4-hour bike tour at night, when Buddhist temples are more radiant, the streets are less trafficked, the air is a little cooler, and backstreets are teaming with locals eating, drinking and gossiping. Visit Wat Arun and Wat Pho in their peaceful nighttime settings, explore the famous Pak Khlong Talat flower market and sample some street food, all the while learning the history of your surroundings from your local guide. Numbers are limited to 10 on this small-group tour, ensuring a more personalized experience.

Il treno partiva alle ore 08:30 dalla stazione di Campo Di Marte, a Firenze. Appena la sera prima avevo salutato mio fratello e finito di sistemare lo zaino da 65L per l'avventura che mi stava aspettando. Ero "pronto". La notte era passata velocemente... come se non avessi dormito. Io, ed i miei genitori, arriviamo in stazione alle 8 puntuali, attraversando Firenze in uno dei pochi (e violenti) temporali estivi.
Gather at the Grasshopper Shop Meet at the Grasshopper Adventures Shop near Khao San Rd at 5:30 pm. The night tour will depart at 6 pm sharp, so make sure you allow plenty of time to get here, accounting for peak hour traffic. After a quick bike fitting and briefing it's time to head out, staying off the main roads we'll pedal our way through small laneways, past ancient temples and canals to see the heart and soul of Bangkok.
Duration: 15 minutes
Stop At: Temple of Dawn (Wat Arun), 34 Wang Doem Road Wat Arun, Bang Kok Yai, Bangkok 10600 Thailand
Cycle and ferry to Wat Arun After passing through Thammasat University we cross the Chao Phraya River by ferry. Crossing the river around sunset can be quite lovely. Once across we cycle quiet back roads to Wat Arun, the Temple of the Dawn. At night, Wat Arun is spectacularly illuminated and free of the throngs of day tourists so you can enjoy the serene ambience of the temple.
Our next unforgettable stop is the world-famous Bangkok flower market. The largest wholesale flower market in Thailand. Crossing the Chao Phraya bridge, we stop at the flower market which is at its busiest this time of night and the market is a riot of colour and activity. On the walk through your guide will treat you to some of Thailand’s famous street food.
Duration: 15 minutes
Stop At: Temple of the Reclining Buddha (Wat Pho), 2 Sanamchai Road. Prabarom Maharajawang, Pranakorn, Bangkok 10200 Thailand
Next on the route is Wat Pho, the renowned Temple of the Reclining Buddha. While the reclining Buddha is not visible to visitors in the evening the temple grounds are truly magical, with beautifully illuminated chedi spires covered in porcelain mosaics. Explore the peaceful temple grounds in the cool evening air - a vastly different scene from the noisy crowds found here during the day, it is almost like having a privileged private tour.

TripAdvisor's Customer Reviews
Guide was very insightful and made sure our safety was the utmost concern. Approximately 8 people in the group
Perfect tour. Definitely recommended... the tour operator is one of the best bike tour operator, I've ever seen. Did a lot of other tours with them afterwards.
A brilliant introduction to the city, with food tasting and loads of sight seeing. We used it to decide what we wanted to see more of. Our guide was knowledgable and helpful. Loads of fun too! Thoroughly recommended.
Andy is the man! I spaced and came to the tour on the wrong day. I guess all my devices still displayed American time or I booked too many tours. I came a day late and wasn't on the list, they said no problem with a smile. He spoke good English, very friendly, good explanation of the history of the sites. The cycling is fun small group single file, helmet gear provided. Bikes were comfortable with front suspension. A lot of tight alleyways and hidden areas contrasting with open city roads and crossing the river on ferry was fun too. To my surprise a lot of stops for street food no complaints! and refreshments. There's nothing like going for a bike ride to forget your worries and feel like a kid again. Also, the city is a lot more beautiful at night. They also have longer rides for more serious cyclists.
Wonderful tour, nice group of people and guide was very knowledgeable.
Excellent way to see all the major sites in Bangkok
This was one of my favorite activities in Bangkok! Excellent, funny, informative tour guide! The biking was super cool, down back alleys, and the neighbors were yelling hello as we rode through the narrowest streets I've ever seen. We rode a ferry across the river, had awesome street snacks, and folded lotus flowers to make an offering to Buddha! After the ride, you're steps away from Khao San road for a late night scorpion snack and 100 baht Chang beer. I highly recommend this bike tour!
