Itinerary

Bangkok’s Other Riverbank
Away from the shopping malls and tourist hotspots of metropolitan Bangkok, we’ll discover the western bank of the Chao Phraya River and the 3rd capital of Siam: Thonburi. Be ready by 16.45 pm at New Road Guest House, we’ll ride through the Bang Rak neighborhood, head to the pier and take a ferry over to this less-traveled destination. Today, Thonburi is a vibrant local community of people and places that we’ll explore as we ride through the back streets that juxtapose with the imposing skyscrapers of downtown.

Sunset with the Sino-Portuguese Community
We’ll take secret paths to the Turtle Temple, where these sacred animals are kept in a beautiful garden. This area is also home to a Sino-Portuguese community with a long and fascinating history. We’ll stop at a museum-café to learn about the history and taste the local pastries whose recipes have been passed down through generations. We’ll then change gears from these hidden enclaves and visit one of Bangkok’s greatest landmarks: The Temple of the Dawn, Wat Arun, as sunset and twilight descend and show us a different side to this majestic highlight. Leaving Thonburi behind, we’ll embark on another ferry and cross the river back into the city.
Right at the pier we’ll scout for a little rooftop with views of the surrounding sites and enjoy a cold refreshment before we continue on.

Bangkok Night Biking
There are few ways to better enjoy the sites of Bangkok than to do so when most of the other visitors have retreated back to their hotels. We’ll visit the must-see Wat Po temple and enjoy an almost silent and magical experience where, only hours earlier, stampeding hordes clicked away with their cameras! As we start our way back to New Road Guest House, we’ll make sure to stop and admire the spectacular Flower Market where we’ll also enjoy some samples of authentic Thai street food. You will arrive back to New Road Guest House approximately at 21.30 pm.
