DescriptionThis 4-hour culinary exploration of Bangkok starts after the market traders have closed up their stalls, allowing for an easy pedal through the backstreets of the royal district of Rattanakosin Island, the alleys of Little India and Chinatown and beyond. On the other side of the river, you’ll meander along the lanes of old Bangkok. There will be something tasty for everyone and vegetarians are more than welcome to join. Join this cycling adventure to discover a different side of Bangkok's food culture. Meet at the Grasshopper Adventures shop located near Khaosan Road (please see the map) at 18:00. The bike tour departs at 18:15 sharp. After a quick fitting the Bangkok Food Adventures by Bike tour begins. This is generally an easy night ride over short distances through quiet back streets and alleyways. There are some narrow sections but you can always walk these if you are not comfortable riding. There are some main roads to cross but you will do this as a group. As you’ll be cycling at night and in market areas, the tour is not suitable for children under 12 years of age riding alone. Children in baby seats or riding a tag-along may join. Little India Salty and sweet Indian treats await at the first food stop in Bangkok’s Little India. Park your bike next to one of the original canals protecting Rattanakosin Island. As you enter the Indian eatery you may feel that you have just stepped out of Bangkok and into the heart of Calcutta. Rest assured that this too is authentic Bangkok. Sampeng Lane Narrow Sampeng Lane is the birthplace of Bangkok's Chinatown. Once the home of brothels and opium dens, today’s Sampeng is home to a teeming wholesale market during the day. After dark the long alleyway is deserted, making it a great place to cycle and avoid the congested streets of Chinatown. Reaching the end of Sampeng Lane, a small side lane becomes an outdoor eatery at night, featuring foods of Malay and Chinese origin. Put your bicycle aside and fill your tummy a bit more. Crossing the River of Kings Heading into another twisting maze of back alleys, you’ll pedal your way to the ferry crossing to Khlong San Market, once the terminus of one Bangkok’s original railway lines. This busy ferry crossing runs late at night shuttling locals from one side of the Chao Phraya River to the other. Fortunately cyclists and their bikes are more than welcome to cross the river here too. Tha Din Daeng (Old Traders Port) Hop back on your bike and ride through lanes of warehouses and shophouses in old Bangkok. You’ll soon burst into the lively night market of Tha Din Deang. This was once a trading port for goods arriving by sea and continuing up the Chao Phraya. The original settlers were an ethnically diverse group of traders, but today the descendants of Chinese settlers dominate the area giving Tha Din Daeng the nickname of Bangkok's second Chinatown. It has less of the glitz of the original Chinatown but has a vibrant night market offering up tasty foods. Your guide will take you on a walk to select from the range of specialty foods before you sit down at a street-side table to enjoy the final meal of the night. Memorial Bridge and the Flower Market Back on the bike with all hunger pangs banished, you’ll ride over the Memorial Bridge with its magnificent views of the Chao Phraya River and then bike through the largest wholesale flower market in Thailand. The Giant Swing and the Grasshopper Shop On the ride from the flower market back to the Grasshopper shop you’ll stop for a final photo op in front of the Giant Swing, one of Bangkok's iconic landmarks. The Giant Swing or Sao Ching Cha, is a relic of a Hindu ritual no longer performed today. From here you’ll pedal back to the Grasshopper Adventures shop with a full tummy, and your food tour officially ends.
