Explore the freedom!

You start by cycling along the borders of Myanmar and Laos, along the legendary Mekong River and through the area called the Golden Triangle. The villages along the way, and cities such as Chiang Mai and Chiang Rai, ensure that you get to know every detail of the fascinating daily life of a Thai.

The often beautiful landscape with jungle, rice fields, and karst mountains offer you very beautiful views. You will see coffee and tea plantations. It is also possible for you to take a trip to Mae Salong, a village in the mountains that forms the center of tea. You will not soon forget a trip by longtail boat over the Kok River, which will take you to a unique guesthouse near a Karendorpje.

Your bike tour starts and ends in Chiang Mai, a lively but relaxed city. Stroll along exciting night markets and eat a Tom Yam soup at one of the many restaurants. Take a trip to the beautiful temple on the Doi Suthep hill, preferably in the early morning or in the afternoon. You will remember the soothing Buddhist atmosphere. The surprisingly good quality accommodations along the way ensure that you can always relax after cycling. Even though some roads become wider and busier, the north of this country is an ideal area for cyclists. The roads are of good quality, there is much to see and experience, the food is delicious and the scenery is fantastic. North-Thailand has it all in one cycle route: nature, culture, and adventure. And above all: cycling and enjoying.
