Hot in the saddle: Bangkok on cycle, boat, etc.

"Mount up as Russell Gould [mX 24 Feb 2009] risks life, limb and noodle on two wheels through the streets of Bangkok.

"It's a five-hour exercise with lunch thrown in and that's no ordinary sandwich shop. You dine at a canal-side[Bangkok afterall is the "Venice of the East"!] restaurant that would seat less than 20 where the cooks are also the waiters and a chat with them, while they cook, is just good manners.

"A bike tour of Bangkok is an expedition through the nooks and crannies Indiana Jones would struggle to locate, far away from the digi-brigade. Don't try to work out where you've come from, where you've been or where you could possibly be going next.

"That's a mystery not worth solving. Just keep your eyes on the road, and your balance, and enjoy a different Bangkok."  Co van Kessel Bangkok Tours.
