Hua Hin Explorer
A couple of hours south of Bangkok lies a fertile lowland with a network of canals, orchards and a huge forest reserve – a tranquil land and lifestyle that is an important facet of Thailand that most visitors never see.
We start by visiting the Damnoen Saduak floating market, a canal packed with small boats selling just about everything before taking a long tail boat ride through the network of canals. We begin our bike ride, along country roads, cycling through orchards and temples, finishing at a canalside hotel.
Day two takes in traffic-free roads and trails with beautiful scenery, entering Kaeng Krachan national park, cycling over a large dam and alongside a crstyline lake, stopping at a secluded hotel in the hills.
On day three we cycle through fishing villages with schools and temples, and along the coast for excellent views of the sea.

I would highly recommend Spice Roads tour to anyone. As far as lodging, the first night was fair and the second night was superb. A great combination. The bikes were in excellent condition. After going on a 3 day tour I am ready to go on a longer tour. Food was excellent. Nice touch having ice cold water, cold fruit and wet napkins to refresh ourselves. Top of the line and fairly priced.

A fabulous tour, and our guides went out of their way to make the tour the best it could be, especially as we were travelling with young children. The food was great, and there was plenty of it. In reality, we really didn't need that much. (I don't think I lost any weight on the trip!).

I thought that the tour was excellent. Most aspects were well thought out and planned and this made for an excellent trip.

This was my first overnight trip with SpiceRoads and I am very satisfied. The accommodations were carefully chosen to be both comfortable but different than what tourists usually experience. In particular, the hotel on the canal was really nice. The guide (Yo) and the driver were very helpful and did everything possible to provide a memorable experience.

A big compliment to your tour guides (Yo in Bangkok during this trip and Win in Chiang Mai). This is the third tour we made with SpiceRoads, and I think you have expceptionally good guides, especially compared with guides we had during other tours in Thailand.

Our guide, Khun Num, was so nice, kind and competent. His English was great. Everything on this tour was perfect. I will definately use SpiseRoads again.
