Amazing Bike Tours Thailand is proud to announce a new trip for 2011, a unique form of traveling that combines our two passions, biking in beautiful Thai countryside, and traveling by boat, enjoying the AndamanSea and the spectacular ocean views. Spend the evenings cruising from one island to the next enjoying a drink as the sun sets, onboard a traditional wooden Chinese sailing ship.
Spend the days biking on Islands and the mainland, seeing sights most tourists never see. Enjoy a relaxed pace of travel, by boat and by bike, experience the landscape, the people and the cuisine of Thailand.
No need to pack bags every day and move from hotel to hotel, we will cruise in comfort from each biking destination onboard a boat specially charted for our unique Thailand Boat and Bike Adventure Cruise.
The biking will combine on and off road biking. The on road riding will be on small back roads with hardly any traffic. The off road biking will be on dirt trails leading through shaded rubber and palm oil tree plantations. You don’t need to be an expert cyclist or mountain biker to join this trip, the biking will be at a relaxed pace with plenty of time to stop and take photos.
We usually arrange the biking with a lead guide and a follow guide at the back of the group. However, it is possible to have an experienced group of riders tackling more adventurous off road trails with one guide, and a second group with another bike guide taking a more relaxed approach to the cycling. Join all of the planned rides, or only the ones you chose, skip a ride and relax onboard, reading a book under the warm tropical sun with the sound of the ocean beneath the boats hull.
