Ride a bike

We provide complimentary use of our bicycles to all our guests, asthere's no better way to explore the "Bangkok jungle" than on twowheels. Enjoy the lush vegetation, spot exotic flora and fauna, visit the floating market and get lost in a maze of waterways, fruit orchards, and century-old temples - right in the backyard of the Bangkok Tree House.

     

 

Life is a picnic

There's no better way to spend an afternoon than to visit the Si Nakhon Khuean Khan Botanical Park equipped with your own picnic basket. To help you prepare for that perfect afternoon, we will help prepare a gourmet picnic basket, along with a blanket and suggestions for the best spots in the Park.

     

 

Visit a floating market

The Bang Nam Peung Market is just a ten minute bike ride from the Bangkok Tree House. The market offers diverse handicraft and food items, from herbal joss sticks, to fried mussel to delicious fresh mangoes. The floating market is open every weekend from 08:00 to 14:00 hours.

     

 

Visit Thailand in a day

Known as the world's largest outdoor museum, any trip to Thailand would be incomplete without a visit to Ancient Siam. Prepared to be captivated, inspired and awed by stunning Thai architecture - there's no other place like it in the world, best of all it's just a 30 minute car ride from the Bangkok Tree House.

     
   

Travel Tips

Q. Can you please recommend three “insider” tips for first time visitors to Bangkok?

A. - TAXIS AT AIRPORT: At the airport, never catch a Taxi from the taxi stand, always go to the top floor (arrival area) and get one from there. Taxis there are always more eager to take guest, lines are shorter and the fare will be cheaper. Taxis to Bang na Pier / Wat Bang Na Nok (Pier to cross over to Bangkok Tree House) should not cost more than 250 baht.

- GET “THE” MAP: Get your hands on a copy of the Nancy Chandler Bangkok map (26th edition) to help plan your stay in Bangkok. It is one of the most detailed and charming maps and is also sold at the Bangkok Tree House for 295 baht. More tips at: www.nancychandler.net

- Get a Thai SIM card:  At the Suvarnbhumi Airport airport visit the DTAC counter (at the arrival hall near door number 7) and get a “DTAC Happy SIM card” and top-up at least 300 baht. DTAC has a free translation service so if you need to talk to a non-English speaker just call *1021 and a human operator will help translate anything for you into Thai! Besides, it’s super handy to have a Thai number so you can call hotels and restaurants for directions, so ALWAYS have the number of your destination on hand. For more details please click here


Q. I want to plan a trip to one of Thailand’s beautiful islands, I’ve heard that Samui and Phuket are over rated, expensive and require taking the plane, do you have other recommendations?

A. If you want a place that has pristine beaches, is close to Bangkok and is not too developed nothing beats Samed Island, nothing! Plus, the Ekkamai Eastern bus terminal where you can catch a bus to Samed is only 20 minutes from the Bangkok Tree House via BTS.

BUS: The fare for the bus (which takes 3.5 – 4 hours to get to Ban Phe pier) at the Ekkamai Eastern Bus Terminal - Ekkamai BTS Station from Cherdchai Tour is 173 baht per person, the bus runs hourly from 6.00 hrs to 18.00 hrs (you should leave by 13.00 hrs to be sure to get to pier on time.)

BOAT: The bus drops you at Nuanthip Pier, where the ferries run hourly from 8.00 hrs to 18.00 hrs and cost 100 baht per person roundtrip. The ferry drops you off at Nadan pier, from there it's a 20-70B ride on the taxi-truck to anywhere on the island. (In addition to the 200 baht fee per person for foreign nationals to enter the National Park.) It is also possible to charter a speedboat to take you directly to your resort. The cost for this should be 2,500 baht per trip which is quite expensive but much faster and much more convenient.

HOTEL: I would recommend staying near but not on Sai Kaew beach where all the restaurants and activities are, which means that the Sai Kaew stretch can get a little noisy. Some hotels we would recommend age:

Important numbers:

Cherdchai Tour - 02 391-2237
Nuanthip Pier – 083 354-5622

P.S. - Other less well-know islands you should definitely consider doing more research on are: Koh Tao (Choomporn Province), Koh Kood (Trat Province) and Koh Lanta (Krabi Province)



Q. I want to visit Angkor Wat, is there a way to do it by land from Bangkok?

A. Yes, the local van depot where you can catch a van to the Cambodian border is at Bang Na intersection which is only 15 minutes from the Bangkok Tree House. Many of our guests have made the trek, although the total trip will take 7-8 hours it is an affordable and safe way to make the trip to Angkor Wat.

Van from Bangkok (Bang Na Intersection) to the Cambodian border (Talad Rong Klua): The fare for the van (which takes 3.5 – 4 hours) is 230 baht per person, the bus leaves every 2 hours from 6.30 hrs to 16.30 hrs, you should leave by 10:30 or at latest 12.30 hrs.

At the Cambodian border: walk across the border to Poipet and pay 20 USD per person for a visa, or even better come prepared and apply for an e-visa online beforehand by visiting the Cambodian Ministry of Foreign Affairs' website. After you cross the border, there is a free tourist shuttle bus to the international bus terminal (5-10 min ride).

Transportation to Siem Reap: At the international bus terminal, we would recommend either splitting a taxi with other travelers for US$48 (2 hours ride), or take the government bus which costs $10 per person (3 hours ride)

Important numbers:

Bang Na Van depot - 081 791-5511 (Thai)
Rong Klua Van depot - 083 607-8102 (Thai)
