The Bangkok Jungle tour operated by SpiceRoads Cycle Tours will depart from Flow House Bangkok starting May 17.
By: SpiceRoads Cycle Tours
In a new collaboration SpiceRoads cyclists will be able to catch a wave with Flow House on the flowrider after their cycle tour of the Bangkok Jungle. The half day bicycle tour takes riders to a maze of waterways, small villages, temples and real tropical jungle only a few heartbeats away from the traffic jams and crowds of Bangkok.
Flow House Bangkok offers simulated wave surfing and is rapidly become a Bangkok landmark for sporting, musical and fashion events. The SpiceRoads Bangkok Jungle tour fits in perfectly with the theme of Flow House; 'An everyday escape from Bangkok – in Bangkok.'
Perfect for those with limited time in Bangkok, this collaboration allows visitors to merge two exhilarating activities in one afternoon. Cyclists who wish to try the adrenaline rush of flowboarding at Bangkok's Flow House can try the new and evolving sport, an ideal excuse to keep cool in the city heat.
Just 1.5 km from BTS Phrom Phong and the Emporium Shopping Mall, Flow House Bangkok is easily accessible. The new tour meeting point is at A-Square and next to the popular K-Village which both offer numerous retail outlets providing a variety of services from dining, to cafes, salon and spa treatments, souvenir shopping and specialist entertainment for young children.
The SpiceRoads Bangkok Jungle Tour departs daily at 1 p.m. and covers a short distance through the alleys of Klong Toey before reaching the pier for a short ferry journey across Bangkok's artery, the Chao Phraya River. The large green area across the river, known to locals as Bang Kra Jao and is considered the lung of Bangkok, is in wonderful contrast to the unrelenting noise and hectic pace of downtown Bangkok.
The total cycling distance is 25 km and the tour lasts about 3-4 hours, depending on the group size and time spent exploring the sites. The riding is flat and easy and is recommended for all ages and biking abilities. The price is THB1,100 per person (US$37) (Children 50% discount for 5-11, 25% discount for 12-17) with bike rental, helmet and accident insurance included. Snacks and refreshments are also included and are complimentary during the ride.
Before or after their adventurous bicycle tour, SpiceRoads riders are welcome to make a pit stop inside Flow House Bangkok and enjoy the wave or simply chill with a cool drink and food from the BBQ. More information on Flow House Bangkok is available here: www.flowhousebangkok.com
A full description of the Bangkok Jungle tour and a map to Flow House Bangkok is available on the SpiceRoads website.
