 What will you see on the Bangkok Night Ride Tour?

  • We will meet at Bangkok Bed and Bike Hostel in Chinatown and cycle from here to ‘The Giant Swing’ – a religious structure in Phra Nakorn that dates back to 1784. The swing was used for an annual ‘swinging ceremony’ known as ‘Triyampavai Tripavai’, that was banned in 1935 for safety reasons.
  • Next, we will have dinner at what is known as “The best Pad Thai restaurant in Bangkok!” (Thip Samai), where you will learn about the fascinating history of Thailand’s national dish. (Not many people know this!)
  • We will arrive at Ratchadamnoen road, cross the street and check out some the architectural gems of the Rattanakosin Era, for example, Loha Prasat, ‘The Metal Palace’, Wat Ratchanadda. From here, you will also have a great view of The Temple of the Golden Mount, or Wat Saket.
  • We will continue riding along Ratchadamnoen Road to Sanamluang via the notorious Khaosarn Road. Along the way, you will have some great views of the famous Grand Palace and Rama 8 Bridge.
  • Next, we will head over to Maharaj Pier and cross the Chao Phraya River by ferry to the more peaceful Thonburi District. This is an area that is much less crowded than downtown Bangkok and has a much more local, laid-back feel.
  • On this side of the river, we will check out the beauty of the amazing Temple of Dawn, Wat Arun.
  • We will continue riding along the West bank of the river to beautiful Wat Prayoon, checking out the highest  Pagoda in Bangkok.
  • You will just love cycling along the riverside, through the local communities that live alongside the Chaopraya River – you won’t believe that you are still in Bangkok!
  • Finally, we cross the river by ferry and head back to Phranakorn District.
  • We’ll pass through atmospheric Chinatown just long enough for you to try some delicious street food dessert and a local Chinese herbal drink.
  • We’ll also pass through Saphanphut Night Market, which is great for bargain shopping, cheap food and people-watching.
  • On our penultimate stop, we’ll head to the biggest flower market in Thailand, ‘Pak Khlong Talad’ – where you can buy someone in the group a flower!
  • To end the tour, we will visit Wat Pho, one of the most beautiful temples in Bangkok and one that’s very famous as a centre for Thai massage. Visiting after hours is a wonderful time to visit as there are no tourists around and the temple is lit up spectacularly against the night sky.
  • After our last stop, we will head back to the hostel.
  • We end the day with pool games and cold beers in the hostel lobby. Sound like a good plan?

Why Book With Us?

Hi, I’m Nikki and I started South East Asia Backpacker in 2008 after my own first solo backpacking trip! My vision was to create a travel diary for everyone, a place for travellers to share their experiences from the road. After backpacking and writing about Southeast Asia for over 10 years, I saw the opportunity to provide backpackers with the kind of experiences that I’d treasured myself in the region! 

Today, there is so much choice, but there are a lot of poor-quality tours and companies that offer mediocre experiences with little care for the environment. I wanted to create a selection of the best tours and activities to help backpackers avoid scams and dodgy tour companies.

Today, I run this website with my partner, Dave, from Spain, where we live with our energetic two-year-old daughter, Evie. All of the bookable activities that you will find on this website have been vetted by a member of our team and we have a friendly relationship with the operator. There are real humans behind South East Asia Backpacker and we are passionate about sustainable travel and development in Southeast Asia.

We are committed to helping travellers at every stage of the journey and understand that plans can change which is why we offer a full discount on the deposit up to 48 hours before the start of your trip, no questions asked. We offer advice on flights, visas, itineraries, hostels, backpacks, packing and more!

If you have any questions about our business or any of the tours that we provide, feel free to contact me on Whatsapp.
