Tour Schedule:

From the bustling metropolis of Bangkok, we head north along the Mekong River across the border to Luang Prabang on safe roads and through ever-changing, beautiful mountain scenery. You cycle along the Mekong River to Vientiane, the capital of Laos, past the largest lake in Laos, the Nam Ngum, pass the backpacker village of Vang Vieng and pass through small mountain villages to Luang Prabang.

Two mountain stages, three intermediate sections and four flat sections can be conquered.

Constantly changing landscape scene and many cultural sights on the way become a breathtaking experience, which is denied to 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 true Thailand, past the Mekong River, orchards, vegetable, rice and tobacco fields, sugar cane, strawberry and cashew nut plantations, small provincial towns and peasant villages, as well as a huge reservoir, until you come to Luang Prabang after crossing the mountains, a city that has been classified by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site.

Highlights:

  • About small streets without traffic
  • Buddhist Temple
  • Through the true Thailand / Laos and not through typical tourist places
  • Mountains
  • Nam Ngum-Reservoir
  • Thai and Lao cuisine and culture

Day 1 = Bangkok

Arrived in Bangkok, one of the largest and most moving cities in Asia, you will be surprised how advanced this city, which covers 20 million people in an area of 600 square kilometers, is. The bustling metropolis, which is awake 24 hours a day, can undoubtedly be described as one of the most interesting in the world.

The day is at leisure. For customers who have arrived the day before, Thailand Cycle Tours offers an optional sky-lane bike tour at the airport or a city tour. Bangkok is one of the safest and friendliest capitals in the world. She is definitely worth getting acquainted.
