Cycling Excursions in Bangkok’s ”Green Lung ” – A Change from the Norm

Known as the Green Lung or the Jungle of Bangkok, Bangkracho is a small peninsula famous for its lush tropical vegetation and laid-back village atmosphere.

How to Get There

According to the Travel Bangkok Now blog the Green Lung is easy to find given the lack of people, and cars. You can hop on the BTS and make your way to Phrom Phong. From there, visitors can get a tuk-tuk to Khlong Toei Port and board the ferry, to begin their Bangkok adventures.

Rent a Bike & Get Going

Once you alight from the ferry you will be faced with a bustling hub where you can rent bikes, maps and buy bottled water. While not exactly the sportiest of bikes, they feature baskets in the front for storing things and are steady enough to navigate the winding paths.

What to see

Places to see include the Siamese Fighting Fish Gallery, The Sri Nakhon Khuean Khan Park as well as the Botanical Garden. Perusing a Bangkok travel guide will inform you which temples and shrines to explore however one that stands out is, on Soi Petchahueng 57 right next to the mighty Chao Phraya River.
