Biking from Bangkok to Yangon

This adventure is made possible by the 2013 opening of a land border for foreigners at the Mae Sot/Mywaddy border. We are excited to be the first to offer this bike tour that will take you through untouristy parts of Thailand and Burma and give you an authentic insight into both cultures.

The tour starts in Thailand's bustling capital of Bangkok where a sunset ride introduces us to the landmarks of the capital. From here we head north to the historical park of Ayutthaya, which was sacked by the Burmese. We continue on quiet roads through rural Thailand to Uthai Thani and the old fortress of Kamphaeng Phet. One of the longest cycling days we have is along dirt and sealed roads to the waterfalls of Lan Sang National Park. At Mae Sot we cross into Burma and have our only significant climb of the tour as we ride up and over to Kawkareik. We spend two nights in Hpa An so we can explore the picturesque countryside filled with caves, springs and temples. A flat and easy ride takes us to Mawlamyine, made famous by both Rudyard Kipling and George Orwell who both mentioned the town in their prose. After a visit to the world's largest gigantic reclining Buddha we ride through rural countryside truly off any path. We meet up with local pilgrims as we join them for a visit to the stunning Golden Rock. Our next stop is Bago with more impressive pagodas before we arrive in Yangon for our last destination and iconic Shwedagon Paya. What an adventure through two countries that are guaranteed to capture your imagination and heart!
