As a dutiful tourist I've visited all the "important" sights, like temples, palaces etc. So, what now? Easy: a bike tour. I booked the morning tour. The owner, Michael, was one of our guides. The other was a friendly and funny lady whose name sounds something like "ciao" and which I have no idea how to spell.
The tour leads from noisy Sukhumvit road through quiet side streets and shabby back roads, under a highway bridge where some kind of shanty town exists and fat pigs roam free, to Chap Phraya river, which we crossed in a longtail boat. On the other riverside we rode on an elevated walkway through some kind of plantation.
I loved every minute of it. We've seen lots of interesting places we never knew existed. Since every tour is somewhat different I will definetely book again when I return to Bangkok. The bikes (Mountain or City bikes) are well maintained, the price is alright, an easy recommendation.
