This area across the river is a large expanse of mangrove swamp perfect for exploring by bicycle! Put your adventure hat on and take off into the jungle on a bike. This area - known as the 'green lung' of Bangkok - has a long-standing bylaw that prohibits any tall buildings. As a consequence, it's a lush and peaceful village with tall trees, tons of wildlife and plenty to see. You can rent bikes at the pier, although they can be a bit creaky, so make sure to give it a test ride first. This ride can be done on any day, but it is best done on a weekend when the Talad Bang Nampung market is open.

This is a once in a lifetime experience, but not for the faint of heart. You are walking a path that has been built in a swamp. The villagers have their houses on stilts, and they use the paths to get in and out of their meager houses. These people are poor, and this path gives you a balcony seat looking into a world you have no part in. I was threatened by dogs at one point, but an unseen voice rang out in a language I didn’t know, and they backed off.

And don’t get me started on the “trailhead” in this app. You are so remote that my cabby used my phone gps to get there. With every turn, as the roads turned rough and the dog packs more bountiful, he would ask me was I sure about this.

Finding a cab to get out of this place is difficult. But I got lost and wandered into a little village that did have a taxi stand. Thank god!

Hey, I say do it. But be prepared in the ways I’ve said.

Nice route for a bike ride.

There are paved roads with a decently marked bike lane pretty much the whole way from the pier into the park. The park itself is lovely and very quiet as cars and motos are not allowed inside the park.

This is a trip worth taking.
You’ll experience Bangkok in ways most don’t see.
Feels like your in a remote village but somehow still in the heart of Bangkok.
