Day 1: Bangkok - Ampawa, 22 mi. (35 km)
From Bangkok, the included transfer heads south to Mae Klong Delta area to begin the cycling at Damnoen Nam Saduak floating market, the biggest and most colorful in Thailand. Followed by embarkation on a long tail boat with a cruise through a maze of canals cutting through local villages and various plantations. This astonishing boat ride offers a glimpse of the Thailand of old where the canal is the focal point for the local people as a way of life. Once again on the bikes, the route leads through coconut plantations and fruit orchards along quiet back roads. Stops will include interesting temples such as the quirky Wat Bang Kung, held up by a huge banyan tree and the exceptional carved panels of Wat Bang Kae Noi. The night is spent in a traditional wooden Thai house by the river.

Day 2:  Ampawa - Kaeng Krachan, 16 mi. (25 km)
After a short transfer, the cycling begins in the Kaeng Krachan National Park on the edge of a large reservoir with lovely views and breezes. The route leads along the shoreline and then inland through a tranquil area. Accommodation this evening is in a secluded and landscaped resort beside the river.

Day 3: Kaeng Krachan - Hua Hin, 31 mi. (50 km)
The morning cycling is on country roads through mango orchards, sugar cane fields, and palm plantations. Lunch will be at the Hua Hin Hills Vineyard where there will be wine tasting for those who want to sample Thai wine. Back roads lead then to Wat Huay Mongkol where a famous monk is revered. Overnight this evening is in the resort town of Hua Hin.

Day 4: Hua Hin - Sam Roi Yot - Ban Krut, 31 mi. (50 km)
Today's cycling follows a flat route to Sam Roi Yot (300 Hundred Peaks) National Park, with its stunning mountainous backdrop, as well as numerous caves, beaches, and limestone cliffs. After a lunch by the sea, the climb up to Phraya Nakhon cave to visit the two caverns will we well worth it. An afternoon transfer will end the day in Ban Kurt, a lovely seaside resort. 

Day 5: Ban Krut - Ko Talu, 13 mi. (20 km)
Optional ride south along the coast through fishing villages to Bang Saphan Noi. Here a speedboat will transfer to the private island of Koh Talu. The afternoon is free to snorkel and see the colorful coral and fish, to kayak around the island, or to clamber up to the viewpoint.

Day 6: Ko Talu - Chumphon, 19 mi. (30 km)
Enjoy a morning swim and snorkeling before a boat transfer back to the mainland. The palm tree lined route today is along white sand beaches on one side and green lush hills on the other. As the sun sets this evening, there is opportunity to board a local fishing boat to see how squid is caught!

Day 7: Chumpon - Ranong, 25 mi. (40 km)
This day begins on the bikes with another coastal ride, however, the terrain will start to undulate, making it a bit different from earlier rides.  Overnight is at the port city of Ranong which is also on the border with Burma. A visit to a coffee plantation is on the agenda as well a visit to orchards that produce long-gong and langsa which are small, sweet, and sour fruits grown only in the South of Thailand. Before continuing to the overnight port city of Ranong, there will be a stop at a waterfall for a refreshing dip.

Day 8: Ranong - Kuraburi, 13 mi. (20 km)
A morning visit to the local hot springs (three springs with temperatures at a constant 65°) is on the agenda before a drive to the next Thai experience at a village accessible only by boat. Local customs and traditions are experienced by spending the afternoon with a local family and to participate in a memorable dinner before heading back to the mainland in late evening.

Day 9: Kuraburi – Takuapa, 16 mi. (25 km)
Instead of a morning bike ride, there will be a morning guided hike to learn about the village's conservation activities to protect the mangroves and to restore endangered orchids, after which a short transfer will be provided to the old city of Takuapa, once a flourishing and wealthy trade port.  A late afternoon cycle through the town is scheduled as well as a visit to the Tsunami memorial at Ban Nam Khem. There will be ample time to enjoy the beach, pool, or the spa at the seaside resort.

Day 10 Takuapa – Khao Lak, 25 mi. (40 km)
Heading inland on quiet back roads, through small villages and pass rubber plantations, the destination is the small waterfall of Sai Rung, a perfect spot for cooling off before lunch. Then it's a short cycle to the beachfront bungalows for the evening. A farewell dinner is scheduled which is always a highlight as all the experiences are recounted!
