Overview

This tour is the perfect way to connect Bangkok and the beach by riding the backroads and trails full of family fun. This active tour travels from the lively city of Bangkok to the seaside resort of Hua Hin by train and onto Patio where you can take a ferry for the gulf islands of Koh Samui and Koh Tao.

We stop at small towns you may never have heard of, where lovely beaches and comfortable, family-friendly hotels await. Gentle breezes, great food and a variety of activities make for an educational, healthy holiday suitable for kids of all ages.

This active family tour, concludes in the perfect starting point for a tropical island beach break on Koh Phangan, Koh Samui or head across to the Andaman coast for Phuket or Krabi. A cycling holiday for the whole family where precious experiences and unforgettable memories will be made.

Please Note - This tour is intended for families only. It is possible for us to schedule a private session of the same tour for adults, on request, at a nominal surcharge.


117 Km riding. This is a flat ride (only a few small hills) on back roads so it is achievable by anyone who can ride a bike for the distances involved (and if not just jump in the air-conditioned support vehicle for a rest). We have cut the distances down to kids' size so that the whole family can realistically ride a decent amount of each day.

Pedal-assist E-bike is an available option for this tour for $140 surcharge.

Highlights

Cycle the backroads of Bangkok, take in a puppet show, then enjoy a boat ride up the River of Kings.

Relax on the sparkling beach of the charming town of Pranburi and explore your surroundings.

Explore Sam Roi Yot National Park, walking through the mangrove forests to a cave and then paying a visit to an elephant conservation center.

Pedal to visit some langur monkeys and check out an aquarium before arriving in Pathio on the expansive coast.

We’ll meet this morning for introductions and a bike fitting before we head out to explore Bangkok together. We’ll begin pedaling along the banks of the Chao Phraya River, through backroads and hidden alleys to the Chinese Thai temple called Wat Kalayanamit with the city’s largest image of the sitting Buddha. From there we’ll cycle to an old market and artist’s village, then stop for a tasty Thai lunch by the canal.
Kids will enjoy the show put on by Hoon Lek puppeteers that combines puppets with traditional Kohn dance. Next, we’ll stow our bikes in the back of a long tail boat and float our way up the River of Kings past the Grand Palace. Enjoy dinner with your guide tonight after a great first day of immersion in Thai culture.

The day starts with a transfer to Bangkok’s historic train station. After picking you up from your hotel, the start of your journey begins at the Hua Lamphong Railway station for a 3 ½ hour journey to Hua Hin. Today's ride is an easy one following back roads through small towns and along quiet coastline. In Pranburi, you'll stay in a comfortable resort right on the coast, well away from the bustle of Bangkok where we started the day.

The coast of Thailand is renowned for beautiful beaches and gentle seas. Sun, sand, a pristine shoreline, the clear waters of the Gulf of Thailand and a charming local village and market make Pranburi a perfect place to relax and explore by foot. With dark coarse sand, a scattering of small islands and rock formations right off the coast, the view from the beach is quite beautiful and the swimming sublime. A perfect day to relax along the coast.

We start the morning with a ride to the coast for a hike and boat ride for a visit to the enchanting Phaya Nakorn Cave in Sam Roi Yot National Park. Following lunch, cycle past the stark limestone mountains of Sam Roi Yot National Park. If you are really lucky you might spot monkeys hanging out on the rocks. Prachuap Khiri Khan sits on a beautiful curved beach and is a small provincial town which few tourists visit. Another perfect place for us to stay!

Today leave the bicycles behind to explore the mangrove forests of Sam Roi Yot National Park. This is a great place to see birdlife and to enjoy the quiet and wonder of the mangroves. There is a walk up to a cave on the headland and we then return to the pier where we take a drive inland to the Khi Buri National Park to visit an Elephant Conservation site supported by WWF. Kids will enjoy learning about this great success story of wildlife conservation while seeing the elephants wandering around their sanctuary. This evening we return to Prachuap Khiri Khan to stay in the same hotel as the night before.

Leaving Prachuap is a treat as we cycle through an Air Force base and over their runway. From here, we visit a nearby aquarium dedicated to the many fish species of the gulf. It really is an impressive place, and the location means that few foreigners get to visit.
Once we start riding, we will pass through the narrowest part of Thailand, which is only 11 km wide. You can see a ridge on your right that marks the border with Myanmar. You'll overnight in Pathio, a small beachside community with expansive views of the Gulf of Thailand.

Meal:

Today marks the end of our time together. After breakfast and perhaps a swim, it is time to load up and move on. Depending on where you choose to go next, our team will take you to the ferry terminal for the islands of Koh Samui and Koh Tao, to the Chumphon Airport or to the Pathio train station.
