Thursday 17th October
We start the day with a short transfer to our start point just outside Hua Hin. Today’s ride will be along the coast with picturesque fishing boats making excellent photo opportunities. We start our ride at a temple where we prepare our bikes for a very flat ride past fishing villages, schools, temples, and many coconut plantations. Following a windy road that offers some shade, we soon find ourselves among shrimp farms. We weave through the town of Praknam Pran and see squid drying on racks at the fish market. We’ll then ride past Khao Kalok, a large rock that separates one bay from another, numerous resorts, and, if the wind is right, a kite surfer or two. After entering Sam Roi Yot (300 hundred peaks) National Park, known for numerous caves, beaches, and limestone cliffs. We ride to the base of Phraya Nakhon Cave, where we have lunch. For those enthusiastic enough, there’s a climb up to the two caverns which are unique in that they are naturally illuminated due to a collapsed roof. In 1890, King Rama V visited the cave and built a royal pavilion that became the symbol of Prachuap Khiri Khan province. We then hop in the van to miss a busy section of highway to our next seaside resort.
Breakfast, lunch and dinner included. Overnight at Ban Krut.

Breakfast, lunch and dinner included. Overnight at Chumphon.
Cycling distance: 50km
Saturday 19th October
We start today on the bikes with another coastal ride. However, the terrain will start to undulate, making it a bit different from our earlier rides. Once we have completed our distance, we’ll take a lift in our support vehicle up to see a coffee plantation where the region’s best Arabica coffee is grown, as well as orchards that produce longan, a small, sweet, and sour fruit grown widely in the south of Thailand. We then stop at Poonyaban Waterfall, where there’s time for a dip before we continue on to our overnight at the port city of Ranong, a Thai province that shares the border with Burma.

Monday 21st October
Wake up to the sounds of birds chirping at the resort surrounded by jungle. We transfer about one hour to the old city of Takuapa, which once was a flourishing trade port known by Indians and Arabs back in the 17th century. Tin used to be the major export that brought wealth to the city, and what remains are the merchant houses built in Chino Portuguese style. We have a leisurely cycle through the town and then ride on to visit the beachside Tsunami Memorial at Ban Nam Khem and the big fishing boat that was carried an amazing 2km inland by the surging waters. Smaller boats were also deposited nearby, particularly in a pond we’ll pass. We have an early arrival, so you can enjoy the beach as well as the pool and spa at our resort, built in typical Thai architecture style. We’ll have dinner on the beach tonight.
Breakfast, lunch and dinner included. Overnight in Takuapa.
Cycling distance: 50km
Tuesday 22nd October
We cycle from the resort and head inland to take a quiet backroad through small villages and shady rubber plantations and cross rivers as we cycle to the small waterfall of Sai Rung.

Breakfast, lunch and dinner included. Overnight in Khao Lak.
Cycling distance: 50km
Wednesday 23rd October
The last leg of the tour is to the tropical paradise of Phuket, the largest island, as well as a province of Thailand.
