With quiet, well surfaced roads meandering through a picturesque landscape and generally courteous drivers, Thailand is a great place to ride a bicycle. In fact, there is surely no better way to get to know the real Thailand than by taking a cycling tour through it. The vast majority of visitors will take a one hour flight from one tourist hotspot to the next, missing out on all of the hidden treasures in-between.
Instead, consider taking several days to make that same journey, cycling through the unspoilt Thai countryside. Travel along jungle-lined roads or through a rural landscape of rice fields discovering magnificent sites unknown to the tourist hordes and meeting genuine and friendly locals who will remind you why Thailand is known as ‘the Land of Smiles’. Best of all you will be travelling at a pace that allows you to truly absorb and appreciate all the wonderful things you come across.
