Full day tour from Bangkok, Thailand
Explore Thailand's famous floating markets of Damnoen Saduak and Amphawa, cycle the lovely surrounding countryside exploring ancient temples and fruit farming communities. This trip runs outside Bangkok.

Get away for an exciting day out of the city. Visit a coconut plantation to see how coconut sugar is harvested and processed. Ride a wooden paddle boat through the famous floating market, Damnoen Saduak. Pedal to a first-rate Thai restaurant for a fabulous lunch on the Mae Khlong River. Back on the bike, experience how coconuts are processed for oil and meat. Wander the grounds of a tree covered temple, then wind down with a stroll through the historic Amphawa Weekend Market.

This easy ride will show you these famous markets but the plus is that you also get to cycle the surrounding countryside through coconut groves, villages and small farms stopping off to visit our many friends along the way. This tour is the perfect day escape from busy Bangkok.

Tour Itinerary

Pick up from your hotel within Bangkok centre area
We have a few non-cycling sites to see before hitting the bikes: the famous coconut sugar village, a local floating market, Tha Kha, with a canal boat ride. See vendors selling fruits, local Thai food, local Thai sweets, and creative souvenirs.

Beautiful countryside cycling to Amphawa
After enjoying the floating market we start cycling through coconut farms and fruit plantations stopping to visit an auspicious temple covered with all four types of Banyan tree. After a visit to an ancient army camp we'll be stopping-in at Amphawa Floating Market which is more famous for local Thai visitors. Amphawa is a very crafty market with both boats selling food and shops selling all manner of craft products.

The total cycling distance is not more than 42km and is mostly on flat roads. Breaks are taken regularly at scheduled stops or at anyplace where we come across something interesting. And should you feel like resting your legs... no problem! Our support vehicle follows us all the way, so at any stage you're welcome to hop into the van and continue the tour from the comfort of our air-conditioned vehicle.

This tour makes for an easy day ride out of Bangkok. The cycling is on easy trails and small roads. There are no hills but some dirt trails to ride along. It is suitable for anyone who can ride a bike. There is a support vehicle on hand at all times in case you need a break from cycling.

The tropical sun can be quite fierce, so we recommend you use some sun block or, if you prefer a natural option, sun sleeves for your arms and Buff headwear for your neck.

What our guests tell us...

Just a selection of our great Trip Advisor reviews!

What a great day with Kan as our guide. The trip is relaxed, the cycling is on good quality, quiet roads and we learned loads from the visits to the coconut farms, temples and 3 floating markets. The trip was well organised, we got to sample lots of local food/snacks and enjoyed a lovely lunch by the river.

Heather393November 2017

I have used Grasshopper three times now, and continue to be blown away by the quality of of the service. The guides speak phenomenal English, the tours are prompt, well organized, and always original. The bikes are also always great quality - 24 gears, good tire pressure, and well maintained.

hoermann3October 2017

Very much enjoyed Grasshopper Adventures' Floating Markets Boat and Bike tour. It was a full day outing that showed us a different (and mostly non-touristy) side of Bangkok.
Booking was fast and easy at Grasshopper's offices, and both our guide and driver (Tick and Wow) were outstanding! They were highly focused on our enjoyment and safety.

mharadOctober 2017

Given the degree of personalization, helpfulness and kindness of the guides, and willingness to adapt, I highly recommend Grasshopper.
