Enjoy the adventure of travelling at Amphawa with the new mode of transport of bicycling! Help lessen pollution and heal climate change. It is also the way to truly experience the local way of life. The bicycle route is about 10 km long with Thai Biking signed to navigate you all the way. Stop by the “Museum of Thai Desserts”. Then bike to “Orchid Farm” to watch the demonstration of the process of making coconut sugar and drink fresh sugarcane juice from the farm before taking your bike across the river on a ferry to “Wat Bang Nang Li”. Then visit “Wat Phummarin Kudi Thong” and the House of Thai Instruments. Afterwards travel to “Wat Bang Khae Yai Nai”. Look at the artwork on the walls, painted during King Rama II’s reign, within the monastic cloister and the Ho Trai (also known as the temple library). Also “Wat Bang Kung”, one of the Unseen Thailand, is miraculously covered by the branches of four large trees, all being attractions, a different species of banyan, including the Bodhi tree. End the trip with a ride across a suspension bridge to experience the Amphawa Floating Market in the evening. You can spend time here shopping for cute souvenirs and taste the delicious food before dropping off your bicycle at the Thai Biking Station.
