Day 1 - Bangkok / Samut Songkhram / Kanchanaburi
We will pick you up from your hotel at Bangkok on the first day at around 6.30am and drive south to the Mae Klong Delta area. The first destination of our cycling tour will be the famous Damnoen Saduak Floating Market. The market situated at the delta area is full of boats on its canals. The boats are often locals who sell their goods there. This floating market is said to be the biggest and most colourful one in Thailand and is not to miss by visitors in Thailand. There is almost anything that is sold here for visitors to buy. The sight of boats doing business on the river is surely amazing. After a walk around the market, we board on a long-tail boat to tour around the area. We pass through a maze of canals and local villages or plantations by the river can be seen along the way. After a brief ride on the boat, we will arrive at a riverside temple. A short visit to the temple and then we will start our ride through local vegetations and fruit orchards. We will ride along quite back alleyways to visit several temples in the area. Depending on the season, you will be able to see lychees, pomelos, guavas and coconuts ripe for picking. We will have lunch at a riverside restaurant and then continue cycling through the countryside of central Thailand to delve into the serenity of it. We will then transfer 1.5 hours to Kanchanaburi for our first overnight stop.
Day 2 - Kanchanaburi
After a delicious breakfast, we will leave the resort to visit some local sites at Kanchanaburi. We will visit the War Museum and War Cemetery to look at the history of this part of Thailand during the World War II. We will also visit the famous Bridge Over the River Kwai. We will then board a train that brings us on a ride on the Death Railway. Despite its tragic history, the Death Railway provides a very scintillating scenery on the countryside of Thailand. We will stop by a local restaurant and have a luscious meal before we go to the next destination. Krasae Caves is next up on our list. It is a cave that is located next to Death Railway and it is believed to be a resting spot for the prisoners of wars the was forced to labour for the Japan army. A brief stop at the cave and we continue our journey to Prasat Mueang Sing. Along the ride, we will pass by several teak plantations and some small Thai villages. Upon arriving Prasat Mueang Sing, we will tour around the ancient city and look at its beautiful structure. The site is almost 74 hectares big and was once used as a trading point along the Kwai Noi River. We ride around the park and explore it and visited the museum at the park. After this, we will pack up our bikes and transferred to our riverside resort to relax the rest of the day.
Day 3 - Kanchanaburi / Ayutthaya
After a hearty breakfast at the hotel, we will be out to explore the beautiful Ayutthaya. We will begin our ride from the hotel and straight towards the countryside. The ride will be relaxing and quiet as we pass through quiet country trails. Along the way, we pass by small communities and finish our ride by crossing over a wooden suspension bridge. After a lunch, we will drive via Suphanburi to the former capital city of Siam, Ayutthaya. It is located approximately 80 kilometres away from Bangkok city. The ancient city of Ayutthaya is also known as “Venice of the East because of its location surrounded by canals. It is also situated on the banks of the Chao Phraya River makes it a strategic point in trading during ancient times. Dinner today will be on your own. However, feel free to ask for recommendations from our guide.
Day 4 - Ayutthaya / Bang Pa In / Bangkok
For those who are able to wake up very early in the morning at 6 AM, there is an optional tour to visit the local temple and make merit by giving alms to the monks which is a traditional practice for Thai Buddhists. However, this can also be a meaningful experience for non-Buddhists. After the brief tour in the morning, we return to the hotel for breakfast. The tour today will give you a glimpse into the glory of the Ayutthaya city by visiting many of its ancient temples and buildings. We will first visit the Wat Yai Chai Mongkol by van. The ancient temple is founded by King U-Thong as a centre for monks returning from their studies at Sri Lanka. After that, we will be transferred to Wat Phra Mahathat nearby to visit the famous Buddha head entwined in tree roots before we begin our cycling journey. From there we will ride our bike to Wat Phra Sri Sanphet, the old palace and Wat Chaiwatthanaram. Next, we cycle into the countryside trails and along the Chao Phraya River to Bang-Pa In, which is the former summer palace of King Chulalongkorn.
