Unique bicycle tour to the Bangkok Jungle
The Jungle Tour is our popular half-day bike tour. In a small group, you will be riding on a comfortable, silky-riding bike made from bamboo. On quiet paths, we will guide you through authentic Thailand where the local community lives in wooden houses between jungle-like stretches of palms, mangroves, banyan and banana trees. It is just across the river from downtown Bangkok, but you will be impressed by the striking contrast between the two sides of the Chao Praya.
Your adventure already starts at the Khlong Toei pier, where your guide will be waiting for you. Once everyone is there, a traditional longtail boat will take you to Jaeb’s pier on the other side of the Chao Praya river. Although this is already a great start of your tour, it will only get better from here.
At Jaeb’s place you will receive a special welcome drink. While the guide briefs you about what you can expect, our staff will prepare your selected bamboo bicycle in accordance with your preferences. Once we get going, we will pedal at a leisurely pace making sure everying is feeling comfortable and enjoying the ride. That is also the reason why we have small groups only. We care about your experience.
Your guide will take you off-the-beaten track to places that would be hard to find if you are not a local. You will learn many interesting facts about the history of the area, the culture and the abundant flora & fauna. You may get a glimpse of electric-blue kingfishers, canopy-dwelling squirrels or Jurassic monitor lizards that can grow more than two meters long.
The activities include a walk around a traditional village built over water, a visit to a small local museum and watching how mushrooms are being grown at a farm. At the beautiful Sri Nakhon Khuean Khan Park, with its shaded cycling lanes and bird watching tower, you will have a break and a chance to feed the fish in the pond.
