1 Day - Cycle Tour Bangkok Countryside (40 km ride)
Tour Overview :
Our one day tour takes you out of Bangkok and back into the Thailand of old. The guests will be picked up from their hotels.

Riding along the canals, you will glimpse the harmonious lifestyles of Thai families, as well as seeing fish farms, working rice mills, traditional Thai wooden houses and a traditional medicine shop.
