Bangkok Countryside
 
It was only a few decades ago that Bangkok was little more than a country market town set in the midst of a densely jangled tropical river delta. People travelled by sampans or river boats along an intricate network of canals.
 
Life revolved around the waterways; people built their houses beside the klongs, which served as roads, gardens and bathtubs.
 
Although Bangkok is now a huge sprawling metropolis, it is only takes a short drive and a little investigation to discover the old Thai way of life and a land of gentle river boats, laughing children, rice fields and green tropical landscapes and temple  after temple! This 40 km ride starts at the Kamalulislam mosque, the hub of the local Muslim community, where the local people are direct descendants  of the Thai southern Thai Muslims invited by King Rama III two-centuries ago to defend Bangkok from enemies seeking to infiltrate the capital using the Saen Saeb canal.
 
On this quiet ride you will have the chance to see how the women of this area work together for the good of the community, glimpse up close the harmonious lifestyles of Thai families as you cycle along the canal. You will see fish farms, working rice mills, traditional Thai wooden house and an old medicine shop. The tour includes a visit to the bizarre temple of Phurt Udom Pol, which amongst other things has a disused helicopter and very colourful stuccos.
 
We ride along a small canal to the old market town of Nong Chok, where we stop to enjoy a delicious Thai lunch at a local restaurant.
 
After lunch we trade bikes for boats and complete this journey with a river ride down the Saen Seab canal back to the mosque.
 
This is a great way to rest those legs and take in the amazing activity along this stretch of water.
 
This is a rare chance to experience the Bangkok of old! In a multi-cultural, naturally beautiful part of Thailand that has not been overwhelmed by modern Bangkok, this is a great tour that should not be missed by anyone visiting Bangkok!
