Overview

Book
The pristine beaches and stunning limestone scenery of southern Thailand have made it a favorite backdrop for Hollywood movies, such as The Beach and of course James Bond's Man with the Golden Gun and you'll feel like you are on a movie set riding through this gorgeous landscape.Southern Thailand has more to offer than turquoise waters, white sand and lush jungles - its also home to a fascinating mixture of cultures. Thai Buddhists mingle with Muslim seafarers to produce a colorful people steeped in history and tradition. Priding themselves on their openness and hospitality, the people of the south, or Khon Dai, are always ready to show farang (foreigners) their country.Our tour starts on the Gulf of Thailand, at a pristine beach that is off the tourist track. We then head inland and spend time on a stunning lake and ride on the edge of Khao Sok National Park - home to the last of Thailand's great rainforests- before we head to the beaches on the Andaman Sea. From Khao Lak we'll head to the paradise island of Koh Yao Noi where you'll spend time with a local fishing family. As we boat through Phang Nga Bay towards Krabi be awed by the spectacular limestone cliffs rising vertically from the sea.

Though we ride through the world class tourist destinations of Khao Lak and Krabi, we also leave behind the tourist enclaves and see a Southern Thailand that is a rarely visited gem to be discovered.

This tour was excellent. Our guide, Woody, was very knowledgeable about everything in Thailand and he chose some fantastic local restaurants to have lunch and dinner. The rides each day were interesting and different. The support driver, Mr Pong was also extremely helpful, always there with a cold flannel, a drink and some fresh fruit - very welcome after cycling for a few hours.

We enjoyed the unplanned stops and contact with the locals, the food was excellent, the guide and the driver were very friendly and great company. Cannot think of anything to improve the trip, it was most enjoyable.

It was a great experience. We enjoyed how the tour started through the rural villages of Surathani Khanom the jungle resort etc etc. and finished in Aonang Krabi. This gave us good time to relax and enjoy more food and do personal shopping. The guys really showed us the Thailand cuisine, the aromas, flavours and colour were exceptional! To top that all off they even got us to try the sweets, which we all enjoyed as well. Other things we enjoyed were seeing the rubber plantation, the monkey up the tree getting coconuts and the elephant rides. The guides really showed us what Thailand has to offer, the food, the culture and richness of the country!

The whole experience was great, finishing in Krabi was good as it put all of the little villages we had been in and through into perspective. A lot of thought had gone in to give us a variety of experiences, we especially appreciated the home stay with the family on the fishing village island. We had an impromptu game of soccer with a group of school kids which was a highlight of our trip. We also had an impromptu exercise session with a group of locals. We really feel you wouldn't get the experience we did without doing this sort of tour with the professionalism of the guides and support crew to help educate and entertain us.

Overall it was an awesome trip (our second) and we will not hesitate to recommend the company to others and probably look at a third tour. The route was great and your guides and drivers are superb. It would be great to see a Spice Road team at the Phuket triathlon.
