Thailand East and West Coast
Road Cycling Bangkok to Phuket

Tour Description: Guided

This is a scenic and awe-inspiring adventure with seemingly endless beach views. Riding down the narrowest part of Thailand, this tour snakes along the east and west coast of Thailand, giving you the opportunity to compare the beauty of the beaches on the Gulf of Thailand to those on the Andaman Sea.

On this 528 mile/850 km road ride you’ll cycle on smooth tarmac through quaint little villages, pass Buddhist temples and waving children as you absorb the slower pace of life of the relaxed and friendly locals.

Our cycling starts just outside Bangkok and ends on the beach in Phuket. In between we ride along some spectacular coastline scenery and are awed by the spectacular limestone cliffs jutting vertically out of the landscape.

Crossing the Isthmus of Kra will prove to be hilly but offer up great scenery as a reward. We overnight at a hot spring resort and continue down Thailand’s west coast to the rugged beauty of Khao Lak before crossing the bridge to the island of Phuket. We overnight at beautiful resorts where you can take a refreshing dip in the pool before indulging in some fresh off-the-boat seafood.

Varied riding, spectacular coastline scenery, statuesque peaks and the warm and hospitable Thai culture will be among the many highlights of this adventure.

The minimum age for this tour is 18.

A note about weather: Southern Thailand has a tropical climate with fairly high humidity. There are three seasons: from March to June it is hot and dry, with temperatures between 27C (80 F) and 35 C (95 F) , with night temperatures in the 20s (68 F). The rainy season is from July to October, but temperatures are slightly lower, because of the effect of the rain. During this time it will not rain continuously, but in sharp bursts, and the sun can come out quickly. The cooler season is from October to February, with average temperatures between 20 (68 F) and 30 (86 F).
