Itinerary

Day 1 | 1st stage: Phuket – Phang Nga

Trip to the famous Phang Nga Bay in the afternoon

We depart in the morning from the Siam Bike Tours shop in Choeng Thale / Laguna. We load the luggage onto the van, and after bike fittings and the tour briefing, we finally start our ride. After about 30 km we pass the Sarasin Bridge to reach the mainland from where we will take picturesque side roads through tropical landscapes. At Samet Nangshe will stop at the most amazing view point featuring a popular café. In the afternoon we glide in longboats through a world of stony islets, overgrown with lush green vegetation. The Phang Nga Bay National Marine Park is renowned for its unspoilt mangrove landscape. If you are of a certain age, you may recognise the rock formations from the movie “The Man with the Golden Gun”, giving the trip its name as the “James Bond Island Tour”.

Then we pedal on a quiet and nice rural road to Phanom. The majestic limestone rocks topped with jungle vegetation stay with us today. We finally get into Khao Sok National Park. We move to our bungalows for a refreshing shower. As part of the program we spend the afternoon exploring the nearby river on a canoe tour.

After enjoying a refreshing descent we head towards Takua Pa. We enjoy a nice coffee and refreshments on the panorama terrace of the Khirinara Golf Club. After that we ride on a beautiful section with varied, tropical vegetation. 3 km before we reach Khao Lak, we do a short picture stop at the Tsunami Memorial. In the afternoon there is plenty of time for swimming and relaxing, with the luxury of both a swimming pool or the sandy beach to choose from.

FAQs

WHAT SIZE ARE THE GROUPS?
All of our tours will be arranged into small groups and guided by an experienced tour guide. Tours are suitable for any enthusiastic cyclist in reasonable shape.
WHAT SPEED DO WE RIDE AT?
The group will determine the riding speed on any stage; faster riders may go ahead together, regrouping at selected refreshment stops with the others. During our tours it is mandatory to wear a helmet.
IS THERE A MINIBUS?
The Siam Bike Tours minibus will transport all luggage, spare parts, wheels, tools, etc. During all of the rides we will offer water, soft drinks and fresh fruit. If desired, any rider may complete the day’s stage by bus.
PASSPORTS AND VISAS
All nationalities require a passport for entry into Thailand. Please ensure your passport is valid for at least 6 months beyond the duration of your stay in the country. If staying less than 30 days then a visa in advance is not required by European, North American, Australian and many other nationalities. You will need to show proof of an onward flight out of Thailand to be eligible for the visa on arrival. This is strictly enforced.
HEALTH
We recommend that you visit a travel medical doctor and ask about the following vaccinations: typhoid, polio, tetanus and hepatitis A. A certificate for Yellow Fever is required when arriving from an infected area within six days.
MONEY
The Thai currency is the baht. ATM’s, which are abundant, are the easiest ways to get Thai baht. Have a supply of US dollars in cash on hand, just in case your card doesn’t work. Banks or the rarer private money changers offer the best foreign-exchange rates. Credit cards are accepted in big cities and resort hotels but you’ll need baht for family-run guesthouses or restaurants.

Thailand generally has a tropical climate with fairly high humidity. The North and Central region have a tropical climate with fairly high humidity.
