Travel. Hike. Bike. Adventure. Explore.
Holy Cow! The best way EVER to see a city!
Follow me Bike Tours was recommended to us by a friend who used to live in Bangkok and it did not disappoint. We opted to take the Siam Boran Culture Tour with our own private guide. We were a little hesitant that Ryley (7) might not be able to keep up with everyone and we wanted it to be enjoyable and non-pressured... on our time. So glad we chose this option because navigating the Bangkok side streets, potholes and busy roads certainly had this Mama screaming for ALOT of the trip.
While Isla sat like a madam on the back of Phils bike, Ryley crashed into a fruit stand and sent everything flying, collided with a parked car, hit people standing in the street and fell off numerous times. While we laugh at it now... at the time I was a nervous wreck! Cocktails were definitely needed by the end of our journey! In saying that, we love a good adventure and this was definitely a highlight of our trip to Bangkok! Our guide took his time with us and we visited and saw many places you wouldn't necessarily see if you were visiting the city as a tourist.
Some highlights of the trip.... we stopped by China town and tried local snacks, visited the flower market (Pak Khlong Talat), we interacted with a monk at Wat Kalayanamit, fed the turtles at Wat Prayoon, zigzagged through local streets giving us a sneak peek into local life and learnt so much along the way.
After 20 plus kilometers, lots of near misses and many belly laughs along the way... our Fish Foot Spa at the Club House was a hilarious treat!
A invigorating, exciting and educational way to see the city. A MUST DO if visiting Bangkok!
