Experience all of the wonders of Co's Classical tour along with the addition of relaxing long-tail boat rides that transport us further into rural Bangkok. Discover why this city is often designnated "the Venice of the East" asour cruise introduces us the charming canal lifestyle of Thais, much as it existed in eras bygone. Scenes of classical wooden-framed homes on stilts, mothers doing their daily washings, and kids splashing away the tropical heat will captivate us with their innocence and congeniality. Following this pleasant break, our cycle tour continues through luscious green belts as we explore the forgotten plantations of this great city. Surprising not in their beauty, but in their proximity to the sprawling metropolis,this tranquil ride will leave us pleasantly refreshed! Enjoy a light "Thai-style" meal which will prepare us for the equally enthralling journey back to Chinatown.

Starting in the heart of Chinatown, our ride explores its frenetic market environment. Winding through narrow alleyways, our senses come alive with the sights, sounds, and smells of a community in motion. We'll pass by store fronts selling everything from Buddhist amulets to recycled truck engines. Local temples burning incence, colorful shrines, and the omnipresent spirit house display evidence of a culture centuries in the marking.
Crossing the Chao Phraya River with majestic views of the city skyline behind us, we visit Thonburi, the historic third capital of Thailand. Contrasting chaotic Chinatown, peaceful elements of local Thai life abound as we cycle through diverse residential communities. Inquisitive smiles and friendly greetings reinforce the feeling that we have truly left the "beaten path" and are now experiencing the REAL Thailand.
