Start Time: 5:30 pm – End Time: 9:30 pm
Gather at the Grasshopper Shop
Meet at the Grasshopper Adventures Shop near MRT Sam Yot Station at 5:30 pm. The night tour will depart at 6 pm sharp, so make sure you allow plenty of time to get here, accounting for peak hour traffic. After a quick bike fitting and briefing, it's time to hit the bikes. We’ll avoid main roads by pedaling our way through small laneways, past ancient temples and canals to see the heart and soul of Bangkok.
Cycle and ferry to Wat Arun
After passing through Thammasat University, we cross the Chao Phraya River by ferry. Crossing the river around sunset provides quite lovely views. Once across, we cycle quiet back roads to Wat Arun, the Temple of the Dawn. At night, Wat Arun is spectacularly illuminated and free of the throngs of day tourists so you can enjoy the serene ambiance of the temple.
Visit the Flower Market
The next unforgettable stop is the world-famous Bangkok flower market, the largest wholesale flower market in Thailand. After crossing the Chao Phraya bridge, we stop at the flower market which is at its busiest this time of night and an exciting show of color and activity. On the walk through, your guide will treat you to some of Thailand’s famous street food.
Next on the route is Wat Pho, the renowned Temple of the Reclining Buddha. While the reclining Buddha is not visible to visitors in the evening, the temple grounds are truly magical, with beautifully illuminated chedi spires covered in porcelain mosaics. Explore the peaceful temple grounds in the cool evening air - a vastly different scene from the noisy crowds found here during the day, almost like having a privileged private tour.
Return to the Grasshopper Shop
Biking on past the Grand Palace, we find ourselves in Sanam Luang from which we can see the sparkling chedis of the palace. We pedal through the back streets of Bangkok’s historic old city to finish the evening’s bike tour back at our shop near MRT Sam Yot Station.
The night bike tour usually takes 3-4 hours but is variable by group. Dinner is not included in the night tour but we do include some fun and tasty street food snacks in the flower market.
We bike with you to some of Bangkok's top must-see attractions but without the throngs of tourists. Visit the symbol of Bangkok, the Temple of Dawn, the largest flower market in Thailand, Pak Khlong Talad and Bangkok's most famous temple, the Temple of the Reclining Buddha, Wat Pho.

Street numbers are not overly useful in Thailand as people work more off landmarks and intersections. The best landmark close to us is Sam Yod MRT station.
The shop is just a 4-minute walk from the new MRT station Sam Yod and just one block away from Miramar hotel. We are at the last building on the same block with KC Music Center.
It is worth printing the map on this page to show a taxi driver if you choose to come to the Grasshopper Shop by taxi. Bear in mind that you will be traveling during peak hour so if travelling from the downtown area you should allow at least one hour to get here.
It is possible to get reasonably close to us on the Chao Phraya Express Boat getting off at Pier N13 Phra Athit which is a 15-minute walk or short tuk-tuk ride from Phra Athit Pier. The ferry takes about 1 hour from Central Pier at Sapan Taksin. The boat service closes at 7pm so it cannot be used to get back to your hotel after the tour.

Our family loved this nighttime tour of Bangkok’s beautiful temples, flower market, and off the beaten path neighborhoods. The street food we tried was delicious. We felt like this was a great way to see an authentic piece of Bangkok we wouldn’t normally visit.
Dad and I took a night tour around Bangkok under the guidance of Kan, and what an experience! Kan was knowledgable, fun, and took us to many amazing spots. We enjoyed real Thai street food and drink, went through the bustling flower market, and enjoyed Wat Arun and Wat Pho without the crowds and heat of the day. At night it was even more magical with all the bright lights and having the temples practically to ourselves.
The ride itself is very easy - you don't have to be fit to enjoy this tour! If you have Kan as your guide it will make it even better.
Loved this tour, was great seeing parts pf Bangkok that I never knew existed, even after many visits there! Loved the narrow pathways of the Portuguese quarter and visiting the temples at night when the heat and crowds were not there. Tammy was an acknowledgeable guide.
I found a few areas where I’d love to go and explore some more thanks to this tour. Wouldn’t have seen or known about them otherwise.
Seeing Bangkok by night was also a treat. Our guide, Woody, was great. He made sure that we were safe as a group and stayed together. He had great insight into the history of the sites and also bought several local snacks for us to try!
Our cycling routes are carefully researched and tested to find the safest routes. The Bangkok Night Bike Tour uses back alleys and side streets with little traffic. Later in the evening around the passes the Grand Palace on a main road. At that time of the night the streets in that area are very quiet.
