Bicycling Bangkok to Phuket
Thailand packs a lot into such a small country and exploring by bike on this tour allows you to sample a selection of what makes this such a popular destination. Traversing along both coastal lines we will take in the fresh sea air, gaze at picture-perfect boating villages and limestone cliffs, while also enjoying the catch of the day for dinner each night.

Glistening blue water, never-ending golden beaches and epic limestone cliff backdrops. Throw in the world’s finest cuisine and it’s difficult to argue that Thailand is one of the finest countries in the world. So, what better way to explore this magical land than by cycling along both the east and west coasts?
Renowned for their fine hospitality you're lucky to have local and experienced Thai guides join so that you can absorb the finest details on this authentic tour. The journey begins in the nation’s capital Bangkok, but it's swiftly left behind for the calmer sights and soothing tones of the beach. Soaring along on flat and smooth tarmac roads, you'll glide past picture-perfect villages (and trust us, there will always be time for pictures), smiling children and an array of Buddhist temples. This is Thailand at its best – welcoming, historic and pure.
Covering 800km (497mi) in 8 riding days is no mean feat, but we always seek to go at a pace that suits you and what’s more, the majority of this ride is on the flat making it an excellent challenge for road bike enthusiasts. When we do venture to higher ground the rewards are worth every drop of sweat and rotation of pedals. Sensational limestone cliffs await as your backdrop alongside jaw-dropping coastline scenery.
Cycling in this manner can take it out of you given how warm Thailand’s weather can be. Riding past the sea makes it all the more tempting to abandon your bike for refreshment and that’s why many of the resorts you'll overnight at come complete with a swimming pool. It means you can conclude every day with a revitalizing dip to relax your muscles before heading for dinner and feasting on fresh seafood. It also means that you will be fresh and raring to go every day on this sensational ride through the tantalizing land that is Thailand.
