Bicycle route from Bangkok to HHH


Round Trip Distance: 40km
Biking Time: 2.5 hours
Elevation Gain: 0m

There are several attractions which you can stop at (described below) and easily fill up an entire day if you wish despite the biking time being only 3 hours. The route bypasses busy roads and stays on small country roads for the most part. It never strays far from the southern railway line and runs along the north side of Mahasawat canal for 15km. The route starts at the bottom of the Pinklao bridge (on the western Thonburi side) which is near the Bang Lam Pu area.




Attractions
Royal Barges National Museum contains the ceremonial barges used by the king of Thailand. The largest is 50m long and requires a rowing crew of 50 men. To get here look for a smile just before marker number 2.

Taling Chan Floating Market operates on Saturdays and Sundays. The market is located on a canal. A large variety of food and souvenirs is available. Boat hire is also possible. To get here cross the railway tracks at the marker number 7.

Taling Chan Boardwalks is a large settlement located on swamp lands. All houses are connected by a maze of cement boardwalks. You can ride or walk on these boardwalks but make sure you leave a trail of breadcrumbs in order to find your way out again. To get here go to the Taling Chan train station at marker number 10, cross the railway tracks and dive into the maze.

Mahidol University is one of the 3 most prestigious Universities in Thailand. The Salaya campus is well known for the engineering department. The large grounds make a nice stop and the large student cafeteria makes for good people watching.Turn left at marker 25.

Putthamonthon Park is an enormous Buddhist Park with a very unique stone slab library. It's also a good spot for spotting giant water monitor lizards. Continue south from Mahidol University.
