Bangkok Sight-seeing Guide : Kids-Friendly Bike Route 1

I thought I do something different on my blog so here is one of my kids’ favorite ride of the time being. It’s safe as almost the entire route is on a bicycle lane that is protected from motorcycles.

*update Oct 2014: The bike rental is no longer in service. The booth was taken apart, ironically, on Car Free Day.You can rent a free bicycle ( Bangkok Smile Bikes ) underneath the Memorial Bridge. That will be the green bridge underneath :

The bicycle stall is on the Thonburi side ( across the river from the Flower Market ” Pak Klong Talad ” )  There are only one size bikes with a basket in front. The trip will take up about 1 hour , granted you visit all the places of interest. Click the link below for more details as I can’t embed google engines map into my blog 😦 . To rent the bikes , you need to give them some ID, photocopies are okay.

The highlight for my kid was feeding the stray cats that resides in the Wat Kanlaya Temple. If you are doing this trip remember to bring wet wipes !
