Discover Thailand’s earliest kingdoms and oldest cities by bike. Cycle from Bangkok to Chiang Mai 7 days, you will be passing lush rice paddies, tiny villages and the country’s tallest mountains. First, cycle through the flat countryside north of Bangkok to the historical city and temple ruins of Ayutthaya then visit a golden seated Buddha on the way to Uthai Thani. Ride around Sukhothai, a diamond walled city guarding Siam’s first capital. Along the way, you’ll eat traditional Thai food, bathe in hot springs, and meet local craftsmen and farmers.
Riding top quality hybrid bikes on sealed, rural backroads, and a few packed dirt trails, the terrain is mostly flat at first, with some rolling hills closer to Chiang Mai. The pace is relaxed and there’s a support vehicle on hand if you need a break. Towards the end of the tour, you’ll ride through the ancient walled town of Lamphung before pedalling past fragrant orchards to Thailand’s cultural capital of Chiang Mai, nestled in the northern mountains.
