Overview

This is our classic, beach holiday bike tour. It’s for people who love the coastal vibe, the seafood, the salt air, and the beautiful sunsets, but aren’t so good at lying around on the beach all day. Active mornings touring on the bike, followed by relaxed afternoons make for a well-balanced vacation.

The journey will take you from the vibrant national capital of Bangkok, down the calm waters of the Gulf Coast and over through the stunning Khao Sok National Park to the surf coast of the Andaman, concluding on the island of Phuket.

This cycle tour is almost entirely conducted on smooth, tarmac roads with only the occasional passing car. There are gentle hills to raise the heart rate a bit and there are lots of curves in the flat roads to keep you nicely engaged on the bicycle.

In true Grasshopper style, this tour isn’t all about biking. We’ve included some terrific multi-active opportunities for snorkeling, hiking, light kayaking, and our return guests will already know that this is as much a culinary journey as an active one.

This is the perfect trip for those wanting to soak up some sun while recharging their mental batteries, on an active bike adventure through south Thailand!

Total Cycling: 308km / 191mi

E-bikes are available as an optional extra on this tour for $200

After a pickup from your Bangkok hotel, we'll begin our journey south, escaping the sprawling city and making our way toward the much more peaceful, and traffic-free rural areas. Lunch will be in a local restaurant. Before long we'll be saddling up in a local temple for our first ride together, a gentle meander through the palm groves and villages before reaching the Monsoon Valley Vineyard. That’s right, who would have thought that wine was made in such a warm climate? The result is a generally medium-bodied, fruity wine which we will taste and transfer another 20-30 minutes to our accommodation on Hua Hin Beach. 

Hua Hin is a sizeable town with a special place in the Thai national psyche as the retreat of choice for the royal family, and particularly for the late King who would often holiday here. The town is set on a pleasant beach and features plenty of choices for dining.

We start out in the cool of the morning for our ride south along the coast. In recent years, cycling has become a popular activity for locals, so we enjoy some bike-friendly infrastructure on our route. The ride features only a few easy hills just to add variety to the landscape and we are always on an excellent surface. The scenery alternates between smallholding farms growing fruit & vegetables, and white sand beaches with coconut trees for shade. 
We pass through the small town of Pranburi and then on to the Sam Roi Yot National Park where we take a hike up through the lush forest by the beach reaching the cave and (only if the weather allows) a short ride by boat. This is really a spectacular reward for our pedal-pushing efforts, an expansive cave with a shrine positioned below a shaft of light, providing a magical atmosphere and some great photo opportunities. 
Lunch is had on the beach and then we transfer for 2 hours to Bankrut in Prachuap Khiri Khan by van. Your hotel is located along the beach. Enjoy a swim in the pool or in the Gulf of Thailand!

From your hotel in Ban Krut, you cycle on to the next one. Today, it’s an easy ride, we will follow the coast and enjoy some quiet and flat inland back roads. You’ll be cycling close to Had Pha Daeng where you can make a quick stop to take some pictures of the Red Cliffs.  
Our ride ends at our beautiful, secluded resort and its private beach. Perfect for having a cocktail in the pool with an ocean view or a long walk on the beach to stretch out the legs. The resort will be our home for the next two nights so no re-packing tomorrow morning!  

Meal:
B,L,D

Today is a much-deserved day off our bikes! Here on this isolated stretch of the Gulf of Thailand, you can walk from your room onto the sand to enjoy the beach! Take a stroll and enjoy the seclusion of our resort – for neighbors we have just a fruit farm and a temple. Your guide can tell you all about the locally produced fruits – or you can just chill poolside and enjoy a drink!  This is a day for your you to enjoy - just tell your guide when you're hungry!
 
Weather permitting, we can venture out to an island 20 minutes off the coast without motorized vehicles. Koh Talu island has abundant natural life, both on land and underwater. If conditions are right, the variety of colorful fish that you can see there is astounding! Kayaking & paddle boarding are possible, but for those looking to expand their minds you can ask our team for more optional activities we can offer for you.

Starting from the hotel this morning, we spend the first part of the day riding along the shoreline with lovely ocean views. The scenery changes quite a bit throughout the day, as we pass through the deep green shade of rubber plantations, where we will stop and see the process of harvesting and drying the rubber.  
We conclude the ride not long after lunch and use a 1-hour transfer to reach our wellness resort, which offers a wide range of spa treatments as well as yoga classes or Thai Hermit Dutton Exercises! Try it out! Diner is free tonight and a lot of southern Thai specialties are on the menu.

After a 2-hour van transfer we start riding on the outskirts of Surat Thani, one of the largest towns in Southern Thailand. We ride a pleasant, meandering road through villages and past many temples as we follow the course of the Phum Duang and Phrasaeng rivers upstream. This leads us all the way to the impressive sluice gates of Rachaprapa Dam, the largest dam in the south of Thailand, much of which falls under Khao Sok National Park. 

After some time for photos and lunch overlooking the lake, we have a 1 hour van transfer to reach the charming bungalows where you will spend the night, set on the southwestern edge of Khao Sok. This is a unique property to spend a couple of nights, with the sounds of the jungle all around us. 

Meal:
B,L,D

Today we leave the bikes parked and instead use our arms and go canoeing on the river surrounded by lush green forest. Your canoe will gently pass the towering limestones karsts. You can jump out and go for a quick swim and don’t forget to keep your eyes wide open to spot some wild animals.  
The active morning gives way to a free afternoon, so while an obvious choice might be to read a book on the balcony of your bungalow or at the pool, there are various other options on offer from the lodge, including a cooking class, a jungle trek, bamboo rafting and even a night safari for the adventurous.

The finale to this grand adventure is a satisfying ride through a nice variety of landscapes. We start out in the hilly farmland to the south of Khao Sok and ride with hills on our right. As the day moves on, we near the coast, but this time on the Andaman side of the peninsula. You'll ride a particularly beautiful stretch of coast in the middle of the day as we pass by Natai Beach and then cross over to the inner shores of Phang Nga Bay. Here, after a lovely, undulating ride down a nearly deserted road, we arrive at a tiny fishing village where the bike ride concludes. 

A speed boat awaits you here and will shuttle our group to a pier in Phuket where a van awaits for an onward transfer to the airport, or to your accommodation of choice in Phuket city only. Tour concludes.
