Hi all

I am due to fly out next week and we are staying in Bangkok until 18th when we begin our Indochina cycling tour over 1200kms through to Cambodia and Vietnam.

I have been reading a lot of posts and gaining very useful information as I have only been to Thailand ( including Bangkok ) once before. Im still not quite sure what to decide to do once we are in Bangkok but I think it will include the Grand Palace, evening dinner river cruise and a days cycling with Follow me.

Again thanks all and keep up the good work as the information is invaluable

You can get the ferry to the Palace then visit all the other sites around there like Wat Arun and Wat Pho, I hope you enjoy your trip and if you get time let us know how it goes.

And if you need a warm up before the trip to Vietnam and Cambodia, there is a 23 km cycling track round BKK airport.

Have a safe trip. Keep cool as it will be hot.

Hi Loveholiday,

Wish you all the very best on your cycling adventure in the various countries.

But in all things, do not take things for granted as you're travelling in Asian countries. Road practices, rules and hand signals are all different. So is the standard of driving in this part of the world.

Take care always.

Just be aware that if you are in Pattaya from the 18th then that is their Songkhran festival time (18-20) so expect to be completely wet - you'll be an easy target on a bicycle. It may not be such a bad thing if you are cycling on a hot day but do be prepared.

Yeah, for cycling, check out the new cycling track at Suvarnaphum airport. One lap is ~23.5 km and the track opens from 6 am - 17:30 everyday. The track is along the runway with pretty nice view.

For what to do and see in BKK, you can easily find from most of the websites. The rooftop dining, Wat Arun, Chao Phraya river cruise, JJ market all those things. The two links below might give you some idea.

Hope you have a great time. I am sure you don't need reminding to drink plenty of water, sometimes the humid heat can be a bit deceptive.
