Central Thailand Explorer
Combining gentle cycling with the splendid culture of Thailand, this tour is a must for anyone that wants to get out into the countryside and experience Thailand's culture and history. We ride along side the Chao Phraya and Mae Klong, the major rivers of central Thailand, and many of the canals that caused old Siam to be dubbed "Venice of the East". Visit Damnoen Saduak, the famous floating market, before boating to see fruit plantations and traditional Thai markets. In Kanchanaburi, we stop to see the Bridge over the River Kwai, Wat Prasat Muang Singh, the Death Railway and the Kraset Caves, all as we ride through the countryside and teak plantations. Before we head to Ayutthaya, we ride to Sai Yok waterfall, where we have time for a quick swim before heading off to discover the temples of the ancient capital. On our last day we ride through paddy fields to Bang Pa In, the summer palace of King Chulalongkorn, before driving back to Bangkok.

'A fantastic and enlightening way to explore a country.

Experienced independent and guided tour cyclists, this was first time we've travelled with SpiceRoads (Central Thailand Explorer). We re absolutely delighted. Guide "Woody" was very experienced, very knowledgeable about culture, history, food, etc, and understood our interests (and abilities). Mr. San, our driver, was super attentive with water, snacks, excellent vehicle support. Accommodations were varied but generally good; great local food opportunities. Look forward to another opportunity in future.

An exciting cultural interaction and experience in the many 'out of way' places that one can only visit by bike.

It was our first visit to a, for us, Far East Asian country. I had to wait a week or two to process this experience, even though we are quite traveled travelers. We always want to grasp something authentic in each region or place we visit. Fortunately this has been the case in this trip. We encountered all the good things and services SpiceRoads advertises in the web: Thai food at its best, the hotels chosen for us, luxurious enough but not losing the exotic touch, excellent bikes, very well chosen landscapes to ride through, but above all, the people in direct charge of the trip. Our guide, Thapat Thawee ( ´Jik ´), always willing to make easier our approach to the Thai culture, competent, punctual, and with the best ´English ´humor. The driver, who´s name we lost with some papers, also very kind, professional ( driving inside Bangkok is for the skillest and most patient drivers, like him ), and ready to produce at the most needed moment the best food and fresh water. We will strongly recommend SpiceRoads to our friends. Thank you.
