From Prachuap Khiri Khan, it is just a short ride to another point of interest, the Waghor Aquarium, which showcases the local aquatic life of this area. The cycling today features many turns and a variety of roads, making for an interesting day on the bike. There’s plenty of riding along the coastline, with just a short section on the highway to help you really appreciate those back-roads! Ban Krut is a serene little beachside town with just a handful of guesthouses and hotels.

From Ban Krut, you will ride along more beautiful coastline and along some low hills through fruit and rubber plantations. You’ll park your bikes for the day in Chumphon, a transit town where the south of Thailand begins. You will check in at a delightfully secluded resort for the evening - the perfect place for a rest with an ocean view.

All good rides need a rest day and Sara Boutique Resort is the perfect place to recharge and relax before the remainder of the ride. This beachfront Resort is blessed with golden sands and crystal blue waters. There are lots of light activities to keep you occupied on the beach and the staff could not be friendlier or more helpful, making your stay an especially relaxing one.

Today you’ll pedal through rubber plantations and forests past limestone karsts which border the Khao Sok National Park.

Today's ride goes from the sluice gates of the Ratchaprapa Dam at the fringe of the national park deep into the karst littered jungle, concluding at the Anurak Community Lodge nestled deep in Khao Sok National Park. There is time this afternoon to enjoy much more than just the 360' nature views, you can also head out on a small jungle trek or enjoy more riding.

Your cycle today continues through the Khao Sok area, through rolling hills along a winding road. Once you are halfway, you’ll see the coastline again which means you’ll have successfully crossed from the Gulf of Thailand to the Andaman Sea. From here on, the only option to cycle is on main roads, so while the surface condition is good, you can expect to have to share it. To conclude your penultimate ride day, you will stay at a chic beach-front resort overlooking the aquamarine waters of the Andaman Sea.

While the road to Phuket today is busy, there’s a certain sense of accomplishment in riding all the way from Hua Hin to Phuket! There are some rolling hills along the waterside at the start before it flattens out and the route takes you over a bridge onto Phuket Island. There, a Grasshopper Adventures representative will meet you to collect the equipment and aid you if needed with your onward travel.

Meal:

This morning you enjoy breakfast with sea views at our destination hotel. We can recommend an elegant resort away from the busy tourist areas, or assist with further transport bookings if required.
