Organize your own Tour

Have you been to Thailand before or do you have more than enough time to discover Bangkok by yourself? Then you can choose to arrange your own bicycle tour. You will usually spend more time getting to your destination, but you can come and go as you please and you are often cheaper.

If you enjoy figuring things out for yourself and don’t mind if things go differently than you planned in advance, arranging your own bike tour is super fun to do!

We organized our own bicycle tour in Bangkok. We used the local bus, got stuck in traffic jams of course, but ended up cycling all by ourselves (on rickety) bicycles through Bangkok’s green lung! At the end of the day we were exhausted, but it was an experience we wouldn’t have wanted to miss. Read about our adventure here!

Renting your own longtail boat Khao Sok

You can rent your own longtail boat at the Ratchaprapha Marina pier. The cost is about 2,000 baht for 2 hours and 2,800 baht for 3 hours, regardless of the number of people. You do pay an additional 300 baht park fee per person. There is no guide on the boat and no jungle trekking, as this is not allowed at Khao Sok Lake without a guide.

It is recommended to gather people in advance, for example in our WhatsApp or Facebook group. In fact, most people at the pier come via an organized tour.
