We meet in Bangkok and transfer to quiet roads to begin our tour with a glimpse at a traditional way of life along canals. From the floating market, we take our first boat trip and see wooden houses from water level. From here, we head south to explore the beautiful coastal provinces on the Gulf of Thailand and the Andaman Sea, visiting friendly fishing villages on our leisurely cycle.
We ride through the stunning mountain scenery of Khao Sam Roi Yot National Park, take a speed boat to the tranquil island of Koh Talu where snorkeling in the crystal clear water is possible right from the beach, spend the evening with a fisherman to catch squid, and boat through a mangrove.
We have a true Thai experience when we venture off the beaten track, staying overnight at a traditional fishing community with a family.
Cycling Thailand’s coastline, we discover more about the history, culture, scenery, and of course the beaches of this beautiful country.
We end our cycling on the coast of the Andaman Sea in Khao Lak, where the beaches are seemingly endless.
