First we hired bikes for 4 hours, 300 baat per person. We biked to the Golden mount and Jim Thomson house. The bikes were excellent. Then we did the Bangkok gardens and canals tour with Chin. He let us through the other side of Bangkok, with smal alleys, canals, fruittrees and housing projects. He had everything in hand and took... More

My wife and I would like to thank Velo Thailand for the wonderful service they provided, in finding two bike boxes at short notice. We also used the parking service and couldn't be happier. The bikes arrived in Korea unscathed! The staff is very good and the young lady at the desk speaks excellent English, enough to understand a joke... More

We were at the end of a long private tour from Malaysia to Bangkok and needed a local shop to clean,service and pack the bikes. VT did a great job in doing all that to a high standard. They even rang us a large minibus taxi to get the boxed bikes to the airport. Well done VT !!

So much fun! We saw things off the beaten track with a knowledgeable guide. Felt safe with them taking care of us. Bikes were great quality too.

Had a great time cycling around the backstreets, alleys and canals of Bangkok. Really relaxed ride. Stopped at Wat Arun and for refreshment half way around. Guide was great, although sometimes it was more the back alleys than the historical sightseeing. Still enjoyable. Learnt a bit about the things we passed.

This bike rental was 20meters from my hostel, people were telling me that it's a bit expensive but it just seems to be Bangkok price! The bike and gears are good quality, and staff very friendly with good English. I went there a second time they even remembered my name : )

If you're looking to buy a second hand bike, parts, get your bike fixed or you're just looking for a cycling tour through Bangkok, go to Soy Samsen 4. It's quite close to the Khao San area...

I went on this tour on a friend's recommendation and found it outstanding just as she did. I took the Bangkok historical bike tour with guide Net, who is a chemist by training. He was incredibly knowledgable about Thai history, botany and the traditional uses of plants we saw along the route, temple architecture, and much more. We stopped at... More

I went on a night bike tour with Velo Thailand, and was one of the most enjoyable experiences I had in Bangkok! First of all, the tour guide was extremely nice and helpful! During the route, you get to see many neighborhoods that usually you won't visit in a regular city tour! (mostly slums) but are unique, because you get... More

Velo is located just minutes from the ever popular Khao San road, perfect for travelers looking to see the city in a more unique way. I book the night tour with Velo mainly to meet other travelers, and found myself surprised when I was the only one to show up at the tour. Nonetheless, what lacked in peer participants was... More

Staying in Banglamphu

Neighbourhood Profile
Banglamphu
While you’ll see skyscrapers in most parts of Bangkok, it’s the gilded roofs of ancient pagodas that adorn the skyline of Banglamphu, the city’s historical and most touristic district. Hordes of tourists flock to this area to tick quite a few must-see attractions off their to-do list, with the Grand Palace being the most spectacular of them all. Banglamphu is also home to Bangkok’s infamous tourist ghetto, centered around Khao San Road. Visit at night to feast on road-side pad thai, cheap beers and if you’re up for it, some dancing fueled by buckets of Thai whiskey.
