The pristine beaches and stunning limestone scenery of southern Thailand have made it a favourite backdrop for Hollywood movies, such as “The Beach” and of course James Bond's “Man with the Golden Gun” - you’ll feel like you are on a movie set riding through this gorgeous landscape. Staying at some of the most beautiful resorts Southern Thailand has to offer, including the Haven Khao Lak for some rest and relaxation during your 11-day bike tour!Southern Thailand has more to offer than turquoise waters, white sand and lush jungles - it’s also home to a fascinating mixture of cultures. Thai Buddhists mingle with Muslim seafarers to produce colourful people steeped in history and tradition. Priding themselves on their openness and hospitality, the people of the south, or Khon Dai, are always ready to show “farang” (foreigners) their country.Our tour starts on the Gulf of Thailand, at a pristine beach that is off the tourist track. We then head inland and spend time on a stunning lake and ride on the edge of Khao Sok National Park - home to the last of Thailand's great rainforests - before we head to the beaches on the Andaman Sea. From Khao Lak, we'll head to the paradise island of Koh Yao Noi where you'll spend time with a local fishing family. As we boat through Phang Nga Bay towards Krabi be awed by the spectacular limestone cliffs rising vertically from the sea.Though we ride through the world-class tourist destinations of Khao Lak and Krabi, we also leave behind the tourist enclaves and see a southern Thailand that is a rarely visited gem to be discovered.Cycling distance: 384 km (4 full/4 half)Elevation profile: +3,454m/-3,434mMinimum age: 18 yearsWe cycle 384 kilometres exploring beaches, waterfalls, jungle, fishing villages and islands. We enjoy some time off the bike so we can take in boat rides, wildlife and the culture of this fascinating region. Cycling is on a mixture of tarmac and dirt roads. An air-conditioned minivan that travels behind the group provides excellent support. You can cycle as much or as little as you like and still enjoy the same views as the rest. - Suitability: The riding is primarily on tarmac roads, with a few undulations, but there are no major hill climbs. The distances are well within the capability of most riders with a reasonable fitness level.
