This trip aims to show you the contrasts in the Thai community and our journey through different areas will exemplify this clearly. This trip heads north away from all tourist tracks. In the beginning we follow the river through typical Thai neighborhood, small, narrow alleys close to ordinary Thai homes. First stop is to take a close look at one of Bangkok’s most recent constructions. Sometimes we also have time for a short walk in a nice and well trimmed park. Back on the bicycle again, we are passing several schools and if we are lucky we may see the first lesson outdoor. We will continue north-west through other kind of neighborhoods and make stops at a couple of very spectacular temples, never mentioned in any guide-book.
The final part of the trip, goes mainly on elevated concrete paths through green areas with plenty of nice scenery. It is really hard to believe Bangkok is so close and at the same time seems so far away. But in between we will visit a local market and enjoy our lunch by the canal. At the same time we are able to see some of the traditional houses, built on stilts, standing in water. Finally we will catch a long-tail-boat and get a good sight of the life along Bangkok Noi canal, feel some breeze while you are thinking back of a morning filled with many impressions.
