Bangkok - twilight time

Twilight sunset ride

Sunsets in Bangkok can be breathtakingly beautiful and even more so when viewed from an equally magical vantage point.
The Twilight sunset ride is a late afternoon tour that will take you along some of the hidden alleyways of Bangkok, through hidden communities and secret temples ending at the highest temple in Bangkok to view the sunset over the City of Angels.
See Bangkok in its homeward drive from safe and carefully planned routes where each turn will leave you in amazement and wonder as we carefully cycle through new and old parts of the city to learn about its colourful history, partake in cultural practices and sample some of the famous tasty snacks on offer.
Just before sunset, we'll climb to the top of the Golden Mountain to see the last rays of sunlight light up the western bank of the Chaophraya river with the sky changing slowly from pale yellow to bright orange as the sun quietly slips behind the horizon.

Itinerary

We meet at 3.45pm at the Just Nok shop for a quick bike fitting and briefing before heading out for the late afternoon ride.
We start with a leisurely ride along the Chao Phraya river before taking the ferry over to "Old Bangkok". Once on the other side, we wind our way through the communities to see their cultural and traditional way of life.
As we zig-zag through the maze of little lanes and allayways, we slowly make our way back to the Chaopraya river to visit an immigrant community dating back over two hundred years and to sample the snacks which they are famous for. A short way further is another interesting temple where we'll feed the turtles - Thai style!
We use the memorial bridge to come back to Rattanakosin island where we'll pass the Yodpiman River walk on our way to the Golden mountain temple. We'll spend some time at this temple to enjoy the peace and tranquility of the surroundings as well as view the sunset.
From here we slowly make our way back to the Just Nok shop, where we should arrive with plenty of time for you to still enjoy the night life of Bangkok.
