Authentic South Thailand

Day 1 Arrive in Surat Thani

We are met at Surat Thani airport by our team and transfer for less than an hour before we have lunch at a restaurant. Then it’s time to start riding. We take a quiet, shady country road through a rubber tree plantation as we head to our beachside resort on Khanom Beach.

Day 2 Khanom Beach Loop

We do a loop ride along the coast, past some stunning beaches, through a fishing village, to a cave. We head back to the beach for lunch before we head to a refreshing waterfall on our way back to the hotel. We’ll be riding through an area that is missed by most tourists, so don’t be surprised at the reactions you get from the locals at seeing a foreigner on a bicycle.

Day 3 Khanom - Cheow Laan Lake

We leave the waves and sand behind and transfer for two hours before starting to cycle. We ride 20 km before we stop for lunch at Singkom Cave Temple. Back on the bikes, we cycle towards the pier, where we meet our boat for a ride beneath towering karst cliffs to our floating accommodation on Cheow Laan Lake. Our bamboo bungalows are simple, but clean, and have the unique feature of being able to dive directly into the lake for a swim. If there's time before dinner, go for a sunset kayak to try and spot monkeys.

Day 4 Cheow Laan Lake - Khao Sok National Park

After waking up to the sounds of the jungle, we take the boat back to the pier and our waiting bikes. We start our day with a downhill and then take a road that undulates and winds through a series of magnificent limestone cliffs and green jungle along the edge of Khao Sok National Park to our riverside lodge. Khao Sok National Park is one of the true hidden gems of Thailand. The park consists of evergreen rain forests, huge limestone mountains shooting straight up in the air, as well as isolated lakes, immense caves, and a plethora of wild animals.

Our ride today will take us to the outskirts of Takua Pa.

We visit the Tsunami Victim Cemetery, which memorialises the victims from 39 countries. The short ferry ride brings us to an island oasis, and we’ll ride the short 6 km to our beachfront resort.

Day 7 Koh Kho Khao Island - Khao Lak

We cycle from the hotel to the ferry pier, and then it's a short ride to visit the beachside Tsunami Memorial at Ban Nam Khem and the big fishing boat that was carried an amazing 2 km inland by the surging waters. Smaller boats were also deposited nearby, particularly in a pond we’ll pass. We then head inland and take a quiet backroad through small villages, shady rubber plantations, and river crossings as we cycle to the small waterfall of Sai Rung. There’s a dipping pool at the base perfect for cooling off before we have lunch. Then it’s a short cycle to our hotel in Khao Lak.
