The Bangkok Paradise tour has many highlights as you can see in the tour-description. Unfortunately only "well known landmarks" can be filled out as "attraction" on this site. Wat Bangkok and or Phrapadaeng Market, you can't find as an attraction. This proves how "off the beaten path" this tour actually is. If you like riding a bicycle and would like to go where on few have been before, sign up for this adventure and let us surprise you.
Duration: 5 hours
Stop At: Bhumibol Bridge (Industrial Ring Road Bridge), Rama 3 Rd. Yannawa, Bangkok Thailand
The Bhumibol Bridge, also known as the Industrial Ring Road Bridge is part of the 13 km long Industrial Ring Road connecting southern Bangkok with Samut Prakan Province. The bridge crosses the Chao Phraya River twice, with two striking cable-stayed spans of lengths of 702 m and 582 m supported by two diamond-shaped pylons 173 m and 164 m high. Where the two spans meet, another road rises to join them at a free-flowing interchange suspended 50 metres above the ground. The bridge opened for traffic on 20 September 2006, before the official opening date of 5 December 2006. It is part of the Bangkok Industrial Ring Road, a royal scheme initiated by King Bhumibol Adulyadej that aimed to solve traffic problems within Bangkok and surrounding areas, especially the industrial area around Khlong Toei Port, southern Bangkok, and Samut Prakan Province.
According to tradition, all bridges over the Chao Phraya in Bangkok are named after a member of the royal family. In October 2009, it was announced that both bridges would be named after King Bhumibol Adulyadej, with the northern bridge officially named "Bhumibol 1 Bridge" and the southern bridge "Bhumibol 2 Bridge". The unofficial name "Mega Bridge" was also widely used.

I booked this tour for my wife and I to on while in Bangkok. Since it was a weekday, we ended up on a private tour. Most groups are small, so you get a lot more care and attention then some other larger outfitters typical size according to our guide is 2-6 people. Our guide was awesome. He showed us some amazing small pathways, temples, suburban roads, and waterways. During our brief water stops he discussed the Thai culture and shared his experiences living in the city as a country boy. I can't recommend this tour enough. One piece of advice wear sunscreen and reapply every stop!
Tour was great ! Lots of biking and very interesting neighborhood!
