Beung Makhamted and Beung Sakae Ngarm

These reservoirs in the Min Buri area collect water from Saen Saep and Hok Wa canals. The surrounding area has been developed into a beautiful 4.2km bike route that takes around 30 minutes to complete. Along this route, you will also have herds of cows and buffaloes as cute roadside companions.

Bhumibol Bridge

To the south, you’ll find a large area suited to biking around Bhumibol Bridge. The route connects three sections along the Chao Phraya River, starting from Yannawa on the Phranakorn side and Puchao Saming Prai in Samut Prakarn to Suksawat on the Thonburi side. The route is most scenic at dusk.
