All About this Tour

This exploration south by bicycle will provide a unique insight into the life and traditions of Thais and the beautiful southern coast. We cycle off the main roads as much as possible, so we can explore long stretches of beaches, the beautiful island of Koh Talu, and scenic areas around Koh Kho Khao and Khao Lak. We have a true Thai experience when we overnight at a traditional fishing community with a family.

Itinerary

Day 1

We drive south to the Mae Klong Delta and start riding to Damnoen Nam Saduak Floating Market. Then boat through a maze of canals past many villages and plantations and visit quirky temples.

Day 2

Wake up early to participate in the Thai tradition of making an offering to Buddhist monks. After breakfast, we have a short drive to start our ride at a large reservoir and enjoy the views and cool breezes.

Day 3

This morning we cycle on local roads through seemingly endless fields of pineapple. Stop to visit a small cave and go for lunch at the Hua Hin Hills Vineyard. We overnight in a Hua Hin seaside resort and have time to enjoy the night market.

Day 4

We have a very flat ride to Sam Roi Yot (300 hundred peaks) National Park boasting numerous caves, pristine beaches and stunning limestone cliffs. After lunch, we can climb up to Phraya Nakhon Cave.

Day 5

After a short ride, we board a speed boat to our private island, Koh Talu. The afternoon is free to snorkel to see colourful corals and fish, to kayak around the island or to clamber up to the view point.

Day 6

We boat back to the mainland. We ride under the shade of palm trees and transfer to our next beach resort. Once the sun goes down we'll board a local fishing boat to see how squid are caught.

Day 7

We start with another coastal ride, but the terrain will start to undulate, making it a bit different from our earlier rides. We overnight at the port city of Ranong which is also on the border with Burma.

Day 8

We take a short morning ride to a local hot spring and transfer to a village accessible only by boat. Learn local traditions by spending time with a family before having a memorable meal.

Day 9

Go for a morning hike with a guide to learn about the village's conservation activities to protect the mangroves and to restore endangered orchids. We then transfer toTakuapa for a late afternoon cycle.

Day 10

After a short ride to visit the Tsunami Memorial at Ban Nam Khem, we head inland to the small waterfall of Sai Rung. Then it's a short cycle to our beachfront bungalows for our farewell dinner.

Day 11

The tour ends in Khao Lak.

Reviews

Great guide and driver. Cheerful, informative and generally helpful. Food was excellent and plentiful. Rides were generally nicely balanced with sightseeing. Great trip.

This was my second tour with SpiceRoads, and it was wonderful. We scheduled a private tour, to accommodate the schedules of our group of 4. I enjoyed the combination of cycling, visiting interesting sites including local markets and villages, and eating a great variety of local foods, including trying them at "thai spicy" level.

Our guide Mr. Boro was excellent, very cheerful and informative on the local culture and foods, and responsive to our requests and questions. Our driver Mr. Rin was equally excellent, and he and Boro worked very well together. We had an unexpected cyclone hit along our route, and Boro and the Spice Roads staff monitored the situation carefully; needed adjustments to the day's plan were made without issue. Overall, the combination of diverse sightseeing, local foods, and cycling made for a first rate trip.
