Come hungry and prepared to explore the backstreets of Bangkok on a bike food tour of the city's best local cuisine. You won’t visit any famous or touristy locations, only discreet locations that ordinary Bangkokians hangout and eat in the evening. Cycle through Bangkok's maze of backstreets and alleys to find out of the way eateries. This Bangkok food tour is like no other in Bangkok and you are guaranteed a unique and enjoyable experience. Taste the different cuisines of the city's original settlers - Indian, Chinese and Thai.
Meet at the base shop at 6pm and the bike tour will depart at 6:15 sharp near Khaosan Rd. Salty and Sweet Indian treats come at the first food stop in Bangkok’s Little India. Entering the Indian eatery you may feel that you have just stepped out of Bangkok and onto the streets of Calcutta. Rest assured this too is authentic Bangkok.Continue to Sampeng Lane. The narrow backstreet of Sampeng Lane is the birthplace of Bangkok's Chinatown. Once the home of brothels and opium dens today's modern Sampeng is a teeming wholesale market during the day, but after dark the long alleyway is deserted making it a great place to cycle while avoiding the congested streets of Chinatown. Reaching the end of Sampeng Lane, a small side lane becomes an outdoor eatery at night, featuring foods of Malay and Chinese origin. Disappearing into another twisting maze of back alleys, you'll pedal your way to the ferry crossing to Khlong San Market. This busy ferry crossing runs late at night shuttling Bangkokians from one side of the Chao Phraya River to the other.Winding with your bike through lanes of warehouses and shophouses of Old Bangkok, you will burst into the lively night market of Tha Din Deang. Tha Din Daeng was once a trader’s port for goods arriving by sea and going up the Chao Phraya. The original settlers were an ethnically diverse group of traders, but today the descendants of Chinese settlers dominate the area giving Tha Din Daeng the nickname of Bangkok's second Chinatown. It has less of the glitz of the original Chinatown but with a vibrant night market full of tasty food to discover this is a great next stop. Your guide will take you on a walk selecting a range of specialty foods before sitting you down at a street-side table to enjoy the final meal of the night.Back on the bikes with all pangs of hunger banished, you will bike over the Memorial Bridge with its magnificent views of the Chao Phraya River then bike through the largest wholesale flower market in Thailand. Cycling from the Flower Market back to the base shop you will stop for one last photo opportunity in front of one of Bangkok's iconic landmarks, the Giant Swing. The Giant Swing or Sao Ching Cha, is a relic of a Hindu ritual no longer performed today. From here pedal back to the shop and with tummy full, say farewell your guide for an evening of dreams biking Bangkok's backstreets and delicious local food.
