Cycling in Thailand

What better way to see some of this beautiful, exciting and diverse country than by cycling in Thailand. Whether you are looking for a fast paced tour, a more leisurely bike trip, or perhaps a combination of cycling and relaxation, you will be able to see the real Thailand and have a totally unique holiday. Traditional villages, bustling markets, mountain passes, verdant jungle and coastal roads- all are available to explore, and at your own pace.

There are a number of different options for cycling in Thailand. For those with your own bikes, equipment and transportation you can head off to one of the many trails in your area, our cycling day trips in Thailand section includes a database of trails located within 3 hours of Bangkok.  Or you can use a cycling tour company, where you will be joined by experts who take you on marked out routes- anything between a few days and a few weeks. These are popular, and you can decide upon a number of routes and skill levels depending on your requirements.

For example there are 'beginner' bike rides which combine sight seeing, some awesome countryside, and a spot of relaxation; bike trips from Bangkok to Phuket, exploring some of the best coastal scenery; more intensive mountain biking, an exhilarating and adrenaline fueled experience where you take in some of the untamed beauty of Thailand; or a cycle trip to Kanchanaburi - the location of the famous Bridge on the River Kwai - which is well worth it as you take in spectacular landscape, wildlife and history.  There are countless options for people looking for leisurely cycling trips on flat well maintained roads or cycle paths or for those looking for more exciting biking off road.

Tour operators such as Amazing Bike Tours offer cycling tours in Southern Thailand in destinations such as Krabi, Phuket, Khao Sok and more.  If you crave an adrenaline rush then head to Chiang Mai where downhill mountain biking in Chiang Mai is offered by X-Biking Chiang Mai.  Northern Thailand is popular for cycling and Active Thailand is another operator offering numerous cycling tours in this region.  Siam Bike Tours offer multi day road cycling tours in Thailand, lasting between 3 and 10 days and taking in amazing scenery throughout the kingdom.  For avid cycling fans, Pedalers Pub & Grille offer cycling tours throughout Asia.  If you are heading to Koh Samui then Samui Bicycle Tours offers visitors cycling trips around this island.

Thailand, with its stunning scenery, friendly people, amazing culture and glorious weather, is definitely an amazing place to explore from the saddle of a bike and cycling in Thailand is becoming more and more popular with both locals and travellers to Thailand.
