I was very surprised to be taken on such busy streets. There were at least 10 people total riding which was hard to keep up with because of all the traffic. I was towards the back and often disconnected from the group. At one point there was a big truck blocking the street and we had to walk our bikes... More

Well I got into this due to a friend invitation so I didn't know what to expect and I sure got more than what I was hoping for. So yeah, the bicycles are a bit old and some of them may no break that much but don't worry. The guides will take you throughout small alleys in Bangkok, take you... More

Holy cow we can't say enough good things about this tour and company. We did the 5 hour trip through China town and then on the long tail boats through the canals. I can't imagine a better way to see this part of Bangkok and the surrounding areas. Wonderful people, food, and experience. You don't need to be a great... More

You heard the people, just do it. Highlight of Bangkok - get away from the busy city! - Tammy and Tom did a great job touring us around. Saw a lot of negative reviews saying that the tour didn't provide enough stops/information about what we were seeing but I couldn't disagree more. Tammy gave us tons of information and was... More

Loved it! I took the 5 hour tour which included a very generous Thai meal near the end. Groups divided into no more than 10 with 2 leaders ('header' & "heeler' as you ride. Wonderful tour of backstreets & alleys with boat rides down & across the river and through canals. Much of the ride is on narrow or elevated... More

Bangkok by bycicle? Definitely yes! Our Tour guides Lili and the other nice woman, cannot recall her name, were the perfect hosts and took great care of us even in crazy China Town! The Tour includes a long-boat trip and a lovely meal, which is provided in a simple but lovely Restaurant next to the water. Highlight of the Tour... More

Probably our favorite activity in Bangkok. We did the 3-hour tour, and it took us to places we didn't even know excisted in the city. The tour guides were really nice, and explained all sorts of things about Buddhism, as well as the culture and streetfood. A really beautiful, well-equipped tour that offers you a look into the actual cultural... More

Staying in Chinatown / Yaowarat

Neighbourhood Profile
Chinatown / Yaowarat
Better known as 'Yaowarat' among locals, Chinatown is Bangkok's bustling district that never sleeps. During the day, the main street and its small alleyways are filled with a vibrant mix of colours, scents and flavours coming from the roadside restaurants and all-day markets. The real action, however, happens after sunset. Surrounded by neon lights, Thais and tourists alike flock here around dinnertime to feast on some of the best street food in town. Escape the chaos by venturing a little further from the main road and discover hidden shrines, friendly locals and daily life in its purest form.
