Escape the concrete jungle of Bangkok city center and go for a scooter ride on what’s known as Bangkok’s Jungle island – Bang Krachao.
Your guide will meet you at Khlong Toei MRT station, from there you’ll walk to Khlong Toei Market a local Thai market, where you will try some local Thai fruits and get to see how local Thai people buy their food.
From there we get a tuk-tuk for a short ride to the pier where we board a local ferry boat to cross the Chao Phraya River. As soon as you get off the boat at the other side of the river, it feels like we arrived in a totally different world. No high-rise buildings, almost no traffic and lots of trees and plants. Welcome to the ‘Green Lung’ of Bangkok!
At the pier you’ll receive a short demonstration on how to operate your electric scooter before starting we the scooter tour through mangrove forests, coconut plantations and gardens of the hidden oasis as you scoot the quiet pathways at a leisurely pace. Look out for birds, squirrels and even lizards, and stop for refreshments at an old betel nut plantation.
After exploring the island you’ll sit down by the river for some lunch before crossing back over, where you’ll guide will help you get back to your hotel or other destination.
