Road Bike Tour of Central Thailand
Kanchanaburi Hills Road Cycling

Tour Description: Guided

This road bike tour of central Thailand takes in the historical and natural sights of Kanchanaburi before taking you to a little visited national park with a jungle and caves right out of “Lost World” followed by the ancient ruins of Ayutthaya, Thailand's former capital.

The riding starts after a visit to the famous sites in Kanchanaburi, and then it's time to truly see this sparsely populated province, much of which has been exquisitely preserved in national parks.

We ride to our first temples at Muang Sing Historical Park and overnight on the banks of the Kwai Noi River. Crossing to the next valley we follow the Kwai Yai River to the stunning Erawan Waterfalls. Here's where the hills start in earnest! As we skirt around the Sri Nakarin reservoir, we'll enjoy great views from our climbs! The landscape is rural, and we'll pass rice fields and orchards as we push our pedals.

At Charlerm Rattanakosin National Park we'll be wowed by the caves and the waterfalls! Continuing on to Ayutthaya, we'll stop and visit the site of a battlefield where victory was won on the backs of elephants. Next stop will be Ayutthaya, which reigned as Thailand's capital city from 1350 until being sacked by Burma in 1767. The ruins are worth visiting before we head towards the more modern period of the Rattanakosin Kingdom and the summer palace at Bang Pa In.

For cyclists that don't mind pushing their pedals, this tour is a perfect combination of sightseeing and experiencing authentic Thai culture.

The minimum age for this tour is 18.

A note about weather: 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 80-100F (27-40C), with night temperatures in the 70s.

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 70-85F (20-30C).
