Thailand’s charms have long drawn in tourists from all over the world, but few really scratch beneath the surface to reveal the hidden depths of this sensational country’s beauty. By jumping on a saddle and riding the Gulf of Thailand, Khao Sok National Park, the Andaman Coast and all of the beautiful sights in between with the tour operator, you'll be promised to witness a side to this country that few ever see.
This spectacular adventure is designed to explore Southern Thailand and that’s why you kick off this cycling experience in Hua Hin and rarely have to switch to vehicles. This is a pure cycling trip and it pays off with the array of sights, sounds and smells you get to soak up. Supported by local and knowledgeable guides you'll glide along the Gulf of Thailand enjoying its dulcet sounds and marveling at the jutting limestone cliffs close to Sam Roj Yod National Park.
Drifting through quiet villages and coconut groves the journey provides a unique chance to see what life is really like for the Thai people who live outside the big cities and in rural countryside.
While the majority of the ride is easy going, day four brings a bit of pressure as you break the 100km (62mi) barrier. However, the jaw-dropping scenery ensures you’ll relish every moment of this before enjoying a stunning day of relaxation by the beach to rest after such an exerting time. It's recognized that recovery time is important and enjoying miles and miles of beach is a great way to do this.
The majority of the riding is on flat terrain and once you enter Khao Sok National Park the atmosphere of the journey changes in a new and compelling way. Surrounded by a carpet of rainforest you'll cycle deeper and deeper into simply stunning nature. With an afternoon off you can opt to hike, raft or just sit quietly to enjoy the array of wildlife noises.
Leaving the park you'll head for the sprawling and welcoming Andaman Coast where you can cruise along gleefully on the bikes to the beachside town of Phuket. This final destination is a popular spot and marks a fine place to conclude your epic adventure through the south of Thailand.
