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 Krasae Caves, all as we ride through the countryside and teak plantations. Then we head off to discover the temples of the ancient capital of Ayutthaya. On our last day we ride through paddy fields to Bang Pa In, the summer palace of King Chulalongkorn, before driving back to Bangkok.

The tour was exactly as described. Our guide, Aum, was brilliant and made the tour even more enjoyable. The quality of the overnight stops, especially the first night, was better than expected. The lunch stops were all interesting and the fruit stops were perfect. Our van driver, Mr Sit, was also extremely good and always there when we needed him.

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.
