Cycle Thailand Coast to Coast

One of the visual highlights is the multitude of karst cliffs, colorful and sheer vertically, something rising up as a tower, sometimes forming a long wall along our route, often draped with lush green vines. We are adding a stop to assist with native plant restoration near Au Leuk, joining locals replanting native orchid species.

Join us on the Thailand Bicycle tour, You will cycle past large mangrove forests and over bright beaches, feasting on spectacularly fresh sea food as you go. By kayak, we'll guide you to the coast's looming limestone canyons, exploring its mysterious coves and caves along the way. Experience all the wonders of the coastal terrain as you ride the land and paddle the sea with this multisport bike and kayak tour across Southern Thailand in the Thailand Bicycle tour.

When the course returns to the shore, cycle the coast to the brilliantly blue waters of the Hat Khao Lak beaches, where a kayak trip awaits you. Between the exhilarating bike rides and sun-kissed kayak excursions, this multisport adventure takes you through delightful villages, dramatic canyons, towering cliffs, and thick mangrove forests. Discover vibrant schools of fish, monkeys that perch on sea rocks, and monitor lizards that lounge in the forest. All throughout the trip, fuel your adventure with delicious Thai cuisine.

Meals: D

2: Visit the temple cave of Wat Singh, cycle to Ratchapracha Reservoir
After breakfast, we are off on our bikes, pedaling through the flat coastal agricultural areas surrounding Surat Thani. Off in the distance, you will see the rugged outlines of the Karst mountains slowly growing taller and more distinct as we approach. As we reach this seemingly impenetrable mountain range, you will discover it is actually numerous tall narrow peaks with flat spaces in between allowing easy passage through. Our goal is the Ratchaprapha Reservoir, where we travel by boat to our floating resort.

3: Explore Crystal Cave and kayak a bit from our deluxe floating hotel on the lake.
Today we will take a short boat ride to hike to the crystal caves, then in the afternoon take canoes out to explore the shores and towering cliff faces of this area. The colorful cliff faces rising up out of the waters provide awesome photo opportunities and the clear floor of the hotel's lobby opens up an under water world full of fish.

4: Relish riding through the towering karst cliffs en route to Khao Sok National Park, visit the Fish Temple.
We travel by boat back to the dam, then head out on bikes towards the rest of Khao Sok National Park. The landscapes along our ride are magnificent, head turners every last one. We stop by the Fish Cave, to feed its colorful schools of fish, the wind down the day at a beautiful resort sitting under the color karst cliffs. Enjoy some free time at our lodge, before heading out to dinner.
Cycling: 25 mi / 41 km, Terrain: small hills, Meals: B L D

5: Pedal to the coast, explore the historic town of Takua Pa, spend the night overlooking Khao Lak Beach.
Pedaling to the coast today, we will first be riding to Takua Pa town and then on to our stop for tonight in Hat Khao Lak. This up and coming beach area sits just to the north of the National Park with the same name. The picturesque beaches of Hat Khao Lak, while seeing an increase in development, still present a quiet getaway. Our lodge tonight is perched dramatically on a cliff overlooking the bay and town. ** Due to a recent landslide, Takua Pa will bypassed on remaining 2017 dates **

6: Travel by boat to Phang Nga Bay, use sea kayaks to explore the unique islands and their sea caves .
This morning we will leave the bikes behind and enjoy a sea kayaking trip through the breathtaking islands of Phang Nga Bay. Our group will enjoy a self-paddled journey around the island, passing under overhangs with stalactites reaching down towards the sea. We will paddle into the hollow center of the island through sea caves at low tide, perhaps spotting Hornbills and monkeys. And enjoy a delightful fresh cooked Thai lunch on board our support ship.
Kayaking: 4 hours, Meals: B L D

7: Back on the bikes, through coconut, oil palm and rubber tree plantations, relax at our hotel surrounded by karst cliffs.
We will leave the coast behind for most of today's ride as we head inland and wind our ways through the heart of the isthmus. This area is filled with small villages, farms and rubber plantations, where they still harvest the sap and make rubber the traditional way. Our lodging for tonight will be outside Phang Nga town, surrounded by the towering limestone cliffs that proliferate throughout the region.

8: Flat cycling through narrow valleys lined by limestone cliffs of many hues, finish at Ao Nang Beach.
Our day of pedaling takes us on a meandering route through the fantastic karst landscapes. Our route is inland and not along the coast today, but the views are awesome and the cycling pretty flat. We will leave the main road before we reach Krabi town itself and head back to the coast, to our lodge at Ao Nang Beach one of the prettiest in the region with towering cliffs dropping straight into deep blue waters.
Cycling: 60 mi / 96 km, Terrain: flat, Meals: B L D

9: Sea kayaking through Mangrove forests, inhabited by monkeys, celebrate a memorable multisport tour with a delicious seafood dinner.
Once again, we take to the ocean, exploring the Ao Thalane region near Krabi by sea kayak. This bay has dramatic canyons and thick mangrove forests that we paddle through, as stark contrast to the open seas and scattered islands of Phang Nga Bay. Perhaps we will spot monkeys or Monitor Lizards lounging in the forests. You have the afternoon free to relax before enjoying an awesome dinner of fresh seafood.
