Go Black - Bangkok Night Tour
Thonburi is renowned for its many historic and detailed temples...
This fantastic adventure “Bangkok Bicycle Night Tour” starts with a casual bike ride up through the mysterious lanes of a sleepy Muslim neighbourhood, which leads you right to the river where you’ll see your first attraction of the day, The Old Customs House. This is the perfect place to stop for refreshments and photos.
After, you’ll head north into the myriad of alleys and streets that make up Bangkok’s thrilling Chinatown. When the lights come on in the evening, this part of town truly becomes a spectacle with a definite electrifying yet eerie feel to the place. The many Chinese temples seem to eerily come alive with all the lights of the evening.
Once you’ve taken in all Chinatown at night has to offer, it’s over the mighty Chao Phraya River by ferry to the historical and spiritual Thonburi side. There you’ll follow the river down and soak up the ambience of the ghostly Bangkok riverside by sundown.
Thonburi is renowned for its many historic and detailed temples, and along the riverside you’ll relish stopping at the at Wat Prayoon, Wat Kalayanamitr and Wat Aroon temples. During the day these are amazing sights but at night with the wonderful lighting they truly come alive and almost jump out at you. Of course we wont leave out the Wat Arun and of course the famous Wat Poo. We might even surprise you with a visit to the Flower market which is a fantastic opportunity to make excellent photo’s.
Just at the point of night culture overload, you simply have to nip back over the river to the Go Tours HQ. Here you’ll be able to relax, unwind and discuss the evening’s adventure, all with complimentary free soft drinks, or you can even buy a beer or two, if you wish.
With a maximum of 6 people per tour it is suitable for people of all ages. There are plenty of refreshment stops and the cool evening air seems to make the ride easy and pleasant.
