After Dark Bike Rides in Bangkok

July 6, 2011 by Khiri Travel | Filed Under:

Believe it or not, but a few days ago Khiri Travel went on an evening bicycle tour in Bangkok from 6pm-10pm, organised by Grasshopper.

Although not much biking was done (more walking & talking) we felt it was a special experience because we could visit places such as Wat Arun and Wat Po without any other tourists being around. All the temples were well lit by spotlights and looked stunning. The guides were good too.

Another highlight — strangely enough not mentioned in their website description — was the Pak Klong Talad flower market, which is always very busy at night and very, very colourful. Just walking around there with the guide, taking in all the different flowers, fruits, decorations and smells was the highlight.

For a refreshingly different insight into Bangkok after dark, let Khiri book your clients on a Grasshopper tour.
