If an 11-day bike tour traversing the length of Thailand while sampling the unique flavours of this remarkable country which is truly off the beaten track, sounds like an epic and awesome adventure that you'd like to be a part of, then you've come to the right place. Designed for those who love to cycle long distances daily, the tour is fully supported and does include a few hilly sections for the first few days, but overall is mainly flat riding and always on roads. The biking is the main attraction of the tour, with incredibly smooth surfaces and well-planned routes by local experts. The scenery and sights along the way are magnificent though and you will be enthralled with each day's new discoveries.

After leaving charming Chiang Mai and tackling the surrounding foothills, you will head past teak forests towards the temple-strewn plains of central Thailand where each day will bewitch your senses. Ancient ruins and majestic Buddha statues proliferate this region and are arguably some of the finest temples in the land. Particularly stunning examples of each can be found at the UNESCO World Heritage sites of Sukhothai and Ayutthaya. You will also discover the flower-covered ruins of Khampeng Phet, the spectacular reclining Buddha in Ang Thong and the Bang Pa-In Palace as part of this fascinating tour through Thailand.

Aside from the historic sites and sublime biking, the delightful scenery, quaint villages and warm local hospitality will ensure your sensational journey through provincial Thailand is absolutely unforgettable.
