About this Cycle Tour

This Thailand bicycle tour 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 venture off the beaten track, staying 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.

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

Wake up to the sounds of birds chirping at the resort surrounded by jungle. We then transfer to Takuapa 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

I just completed an 11-day cycling trip from Bangkok to Phuket and must say that it was an amazing experience. I greatly appreciated the natural beauty of the country (beaches, waterfalls, plantations, mountains, jungles) however the real attractions were my fellow riders and the SpiceRoads staff. There were 10 riders who hailed from Canada (me), the UK and the US. We had a great time on the bikes as well as over the spectacular Thai meals and the occasional Singha ;) Our guides, Mr. Korn and Mr. Bird as well as our drivers made the trip particularly special for us. Everything was extremely well organized: the routes, the meals, the resorts, the breaks. We never felt unsafe, neither on the bikes or off.

SpiceRoads create an itinerary that offers the perfect combination of cycling, site seeing, enjoying great food, with great company. We are already looking at where to go next year.

The guides and support staff take utmost care to provide a first class travel experience based on a carefully thought out itinerary. Can't say enough good things about this trip.
