Thailand Cycle Tours offers two options for the Bangkok - Chiang Rai tour: one for enthusiastic cyclists who also want to be able to enjoy the landscape to the fullest and one for more sporty people who want to be on the move a bit faster.

The pace for pure connoisseurs should be between 24 to 27, that for the more athletic 27 to 30 km / h.

The tour lasts 11 days / 10 nights and covers a distance of 850 kilometers.

From the bustling city of Bangkok, head north towards the mountains to Chiang Rai, on safe roads and through ever-changing, beautiful mountain scenery.

    • Through authentic Thailand and not through typical tourist locations
    • Over small roads without traffic

Three mountain stages and six flat sections are to be conquered.

Ever-changing landscape pictures and many cultural sights on the way become a breathtaking experience, which remains withheld from most Thailand tourists, because they hardly come here.

On the way to the north, you will gradually get away from the hustle and bustle of the metropolis of Bangkok to the authentic Thailand, passing by orchards, vineyards, vegetable, rice and tobacco fields, sugar cane, strawberry and cashew nut plantations, small provincial towns and rural villages and a huge reservoir until you see the white temple of Chiang Rai after crossing the mountains.

You will experience many sacred Buddhist shrines and temples that offer plenty of photographic motifs.
