Kanchainburi is right up there with the most popular spots to visit in Thailand so this article is about a new way to visit kanchanaburi ‘by mountain bike’. The cycling day trip is run by a small mountain bike company based in khaosan road Bangkok.
The trip started at 9.00am with a pick up at khaosan road. The heat smog and traffic of Bangkok can be a little off putting for anyone who is a cyclist but the trip organizers drive you further and further away from the hustle and bustle and as you look out of the car window you gradually see peaceful side of Thailand and its cycling potential. After a 2 hour journey we arrived at kanchanburi railway station with and old engine out and we could immediately began to see towns history. The tour guides off loaded the bikes from สล็อต the van and armed with a bottle of water, a bicycle and a guide we headed out into the heat on the first leg of our trip. The first thing we noticed was the clean air which made the cycling easy and relaxing and after a few days in Bangkok it was like stepping out into anther world. We first rode through a short part of the town which is quite lively and littered with guest houses and restaurants. Bicycles and motorcycles seem to be the main source of transport for most of the locals who when they see you give a friendly smile an say “sawadee krup” which means hello in Thai.
