Starting in Bangkok, this journey takes in the Floating Market, the Bridge over the River Kwai and the temples of Ayutthaya. We drive to the floating market of Damnoen Saduak before a long tail boat brings us to our starting point at a riverside temple. Riding quiet trails through plantations, we visit several temples including Wat Amphawan Chetiyaram, and enjoy a riverside lunch. After some easy cycling we return to the floating market and transfer to the resort in Kanchanaburi for the end of the first day. Day 2 explores the splendours of Kanchanaburi: the Bridge over the River Kwai, Wat Prasat Muang Singh, the Death Railway and the Kraset Caves are visited in between riding through the countryside and teak plantations. We spend a little more time in the wonderfully scenic Kanchaniburi province as we ride from the hotel out into the countryside, before finishing at Sai Yok Noi waterfall where we have time for a short swim before we head towards Ayutthaya via Suphanburi and discover temples of the ancient capital such as Wat Phra Mahathat, Wat Yai Chai Mongkol and Wat Phra Sri Sanphet. Our final day offers you an optional early offers tour to the fresh market and giving monks food.
