Itinerary

Day 1

We meet at the hotel for a trip briefing and a seafood dinner.

Day 2

We start the day by riding through the mangroves and rubber plantations to avoid traffic. We continue cycling southwards, along the Andaman coast, directly to our hotel.

Day 3

We cycle on a scenic road alongside the sea before heading inland, where a soak in a hot spring is optional. Next, we cycle through thick mangrove forests and rubber and palm plantations before we cross to our overnight island resort on Sukorn Island.

Day 4

Head back inland and cycle scenic back roads and see rural Thailand at its best before riding south to the border city of Satun.

Day 5

Cycle across the border to Malaysia. We tackle a moderately challenging uphill ride followed by a thrilling downhill and overnight in Alor Setar.

Day 6

Today's ride is mostly flat as we hug the scenic coast all the way to Tupah Recreational Forest, where we go for a refreshing dip in the river. We cross to the island of Penang and overnight at the colonial town of Georgetown. Tonight, we hit the town and discover the town’s famous delicacies.
