Top Bangkok Bicycle Tips

  • Bangkok traffic can be wild! Steer clear of main streets during peak hour. 
  • Choose back roads or stay in the parks when possible. 
  • Cycle early to beat the commuters. It starts getting light by 6am in Bangkok. 
  • Always wear a helmet. Gloves and solid shoes are recommended.
  • Beat the Bangkok Heat! Carry a trusty water bottle and take regular breaks.
  • Drive on the left and stay in the left lane. 
  • Footpaths are a no no.
