let the fun begin!
arrive, welcome seafood dinner
Your guides will await you at Krabi Airport in southern Thailand and then drive to the beach town of Ao Nang. Get fitted with your bike, then relax for the afternoon.

cycle through Karst landscapes to Au Leuk
The region through which we ride for these first few days is filled with karst limestone outcroppings and dramatic cliff faces, surrounded by dark green palm oil and rubber tree plantations. There is a new photo op at literally every turn. This part of Thailand is predominantly Muslim, so calls to prayer are heard over loudspeakers and grilled chicken is king of roadside cafés. The tiny town of Au Leuk is our overnight stop where we relax at a small family run inn.

Cycle into Phang Nga town, where we bed down in a 100 year old Hotel, the first hotel in town, built by a Chinese businessman and lovingly restored by his grandson.

The route turns away from the coast, as you start across the Isthmus. Rolling hills covered with rubber tree farms and oil palm plantations, provide a lush green environment for cycling, as we work our way towards Khao Sok National Park. As we cross the coastal ranges, as vast area of karst outcroppings spreads out as far as the eye can see, our cycling turf for the next few days. At the bottom of the descent is Khao Sok National Park’s headquarter area where we bed down tonight.
