Bicycle tours Thailand
Thailand, the land of the smile is an excellent country to explore on bicycle. We offer a selection of organized bicycle tours Thailand.
Biking the South of Thailand (10D/9N)
The Biking the south of Thailand tour starts in Bangkok but moves quickly to southern Thailand. There is much to explore by bicycle. South Thailand is much more than beaches. You will find yourself back in the limestone mountains around Krabi, rubber plantations, rain forests and of course many beaches. Your bicycle journey will give you the opportunity to shoot photos of places few travelers to south Thailand ever visit.
The journey starts with an overnight train ride to Trang. From here you will cycle to Pak Meng, Krabi and Ao Luk. You will visit Phang Nga Bay (James Bond Island) and Khao Sok National Park.
The trail will bring you further to Phuket where white sandy beaches and warm blue water awaits you.
Siam Boran (Historical) Bicycle Tour
Cycle into the old heart of the capital of Thailand, cross the river and visit the former capital and temples. You will further visit the flower- and vegetable markets, find your way through the buzzling Chinatown and have a great BBQ meal at the end of the tour. You wouldn't believe you can cycle Bangkok until you've done this tour.
North Thailand Cycling Expedition (13D/12N)
The North Thailand Cycling Expedition tour will show you historical temples, amazing rainforests with spectacular waterfalls and isolated almost forgotten villages in a package unavailable anywhere else.
It all starts in Bangkok and fly from there to Chiang Mai to explore the north of Thailand including the famous Golden Triangle.
My particular favorite in this area is the beautiful Doi Inthanon National Park (did you know Thailand has 102 national parks (including 21 marine national parks!), which is a real must to visit. (see the photo).
Thailand Bike Adventure (7D/6N)
This tour starts in Bangkok and moves quickly to Khao Yai National Park, north east of Bangkok. Here you will trek amongst the park's many trails. Animals for sure to be seen include hornbills, monkeys and other indigenous animals. The trekking includes a visit to the spectacular Haew Suwat Waterfall.
Your journey continues as you spend the next three days cycling through rural Thailand. You will cycle on minor (quiet) local roads and an occasional dirt track, find local villages where few if any tourist ever comes and find some amazing sceneries
From Khao Yai you will cycle along the Khao Ta Leo mountains toward the riverside town of Gaeng Hinh Poeng.
The next two days are spent riding along the Thai/Cambodian border toward the town of Soi Dao. Along the way, you will stop at waterfalls, local markets, and anywhere you wish to stop for a rest or a photo opportunity.
This part of Thailand is seldom visited by mainstream tourist and worth a visit. It's an area where you can see wild elephants, monkeys, hornbills and even, if you are lucky pythons.
Mae Kampong Eco Tour - Chiang Mai (Thailand)
The Mae Kampong Eco Tour - Chiang Mai is one day charitable tour. It will brings you in the Thai countryside around Chiang Mai. You will stop at local markets and select here the ingredients for your lunch. Continue to Mae Kampong village to meet villagers.
The people of Mae Kampong have maintained their own dialect of Thai and keep traditional culture unique to the area. Take a short walk through the community forest, passing tea and coffee fields.
Return to the village in time to watch lunch being prepared by your host family to see how Thai food is prepared in the countryside.
After lunch relax with Thai traditional massage and take a walk around the village to see the processing of fermented tea leaves, and various products which are hand-made in the village. Late this afternoon drive back through the mountains to Chiang Mai.
Baan Kingkaew Orphanage - Chiang Mai (Thailand)
"Everyone deserves to be loved". The Baan Kingkaew Orphanage was opened in 1966 through the generous donations of a Thai lady. With the assistance of your guide, volunteer your own time to help local nannies feed and play with the 50 orphans. This Chiang Mai day trip offers an unforgettable opportunity to truly connect with the people of Thailand. (recommended!!)

Cycling in and around Bangkok
Admitting there are nicer parts in Thailand to cycle, but if you have to, Bangkok is not as suicidal as some think. Still, I think it's possible but I would recommend simply to drop your bike on the train and start cycling from another point ...
Maps of Thailand
Traveling in Thailand without a map is possible but I like maps. Here are some recommendations international and local made Thailand maps.

Cycling in South Thailand
Many regard South Thailand as less interesting for cycling. I do not. There's plenty to see and experience. Check out my South Thailand section:
North East Thailand
Lesser visited by travelers doesn't mean less interesting. North East Thailand is especially interesting to cycle. Areas around Surin, Ubon and Mukdahan get travelers, here's why:
