Bangkok Cycling To Phuket Island – 13 Days

70

Bangkok Cycling To Phuket Island .This exploration south by bicycle will provide a unique insight into the life and traditions of Thais and the beautiful southern coast. We cycle off the main roads as much as possible so we can explore long stretches of beaches, the beautiful island of Ko Talu and scenic areas around Koh Kho Khao and Khao Lak. We have a true Thai experience when we overnight at a traditional fishing community with a family.   We meet in Bangkok and transfer to quiet roads to begin our tour with a glimpse at a traditional way of life along canals. From the floating market we take our first boat trip and see wooden houses from water level. From here we head south to explore the beautiful coastal provinces on the Gulf of Thailand and the Andaman Sea, visiting friendly fishing villages on our leisurely cycle. We ride through the stunning mountain scenery of Khao Sam Roi Yot National Park, take a speed boat to the tranquil island of Ko Talu where snorkeling in the crystal clear water is possible right from the beach, spend the evening with a fisherman to catch squid, boat through a mangrove. We end our cycling on the coast of the Andaman Sea in Khao Lak, where the beaches are seemingly endless. The emphasis on this tour is Thailand’s history, culture, scenery and of course the beautiful coastline
