Your cycling adventure will start in the Mae Kong Delta area, after you’ve explored Thailand’s biggest floating market. Take a boat through the entangled canals then cycle back, stopping off at some unusual temples.
Today you will see the sights of the province of Kanchanaburi. You’ll visit the war museum and cemetery, then cycle the famous Bridge Over the River Kwai. During World War 2, Japanese forces used Allied prisoners of war to build a rail route between Thailand and Burma. You will also ride a section of this so-called ‘Death Railway’.
A scenic day, you ride along rubber and coconut plantations. Cycling across the wooden suspension bridge signals the end of today’s adventures. This afternoon you’ll arrive in the ancient city of Ayutthaya, also known as the “Venice of the East”.
This morning you will visit a temple. Feel free to donate food to the monks in accordance with the Thai Buddhist ritual. Later, explore the remaining temples of the Ayutthaya Empire and a Buddha head tangled in tree roots, It’s then time to swap temples for rural land as you cycle along the Chao Phraya River. After looking round the former summer palace of King Chulalongkorn, it will be time to head to to Bangkok where the tour ends.
