Several years ago, I was traveling through Bangkok alone in search of some adventures. I had already visited the enormous and bustling Chatuchak weekend market, strolled through the manicured grounds of the Grand Palace, and burned myself out on photographing the numerous golden temples dispersed throughout the city. It was time for some real adventure. While I don’t typically sign onto touristy tours, Grasshopper Adventures piqued my interest because what better way to see the city than by bike? I didn’t think twice about the lack of traffic laws (or at least the lack of adherence to travel laws) and signed up for the full-day bike tour through the mad city.
