There are a lot of places in Thailand that are great for getting around on a bicycle. Here are some of the most helpful suggestions we can provide for making the most of your time in the Land of Smiles… and we’re off and running now!
Bicycling in Sukhothai
Sukhothai, which is itself a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is widely regarded as one of the most famous cycling destinations in all of Thailand. The remains of the ancient city may be found strewn throughout the terrain, interspersed with Buddhist temples that boast a legacy that dates back hundreds of years. Several trails allow you to explore each nook and cranny at your own speed. The urban core is just the right size to navigate on two wheels, and there are lots of restaurants and cafés along the roadsides where you can pull over for a refreshment break. You might also pack your luggage and go to neighboring districts such as Si Satchanalai or Ban Na. Another option is to go to the adjacent towns.
Khao Sam Roi Yot National Park
One of the most scenic and challenging rides in all of Thailand can be found within the Khao Sam Roi Yot National Park, which is also one of the most visited parks in all of Thailand. The park encompasses a wide range of topographic features, including low plains, wooded hills, and coastal areas. You should know that this location is quite close to Bangkok if you are curious about how tough it is to travel here from the Thai capital city of Bangkok.
Because of its vastness and the diversity of the roads that run through it, this is undeniably a region that offers a great deal of room to explore while riding a bicycle. The park is known as one of the most popular tourist sites in Thailand because of the alluring combination of its verdant woods and sandy beaches for visitors. In addition to this, it is home to a diverse array of flora and fauna, making it possible to spot Indian nightjars, Himalayan swifts, and other species while out on a bike ride.
Lumphini Park is another destination that is highly regarded by cyclists. The locals refer to this big urban park with an artificial lake as “Bangkok’s Central Park,” and it is located in the heart of Bangkok. In addition to this, it is situated in close proximity to a number of stunning Buddhist monasteries, and also features bicycle paths through the park that may be explored while simultaneously observing the wide variety of creatures that call this place home.
Bicycling in Khao Lak
The town of Khao Lak is situated on the western coast of Thailand, and the region is characterized by a number of characteristics that make it an ideal location for riding. This stunning tract of land is home to a variety of landscapes, including tropical beaches, woodlands, and mountains, and it features bike trails that make it possible to explore all of these varied environments. You may take a bus, taxi, or vehicle from Phuket to Phang Nga, which is a gorgeous and scenic region in the southern part of Thailand, or you could even use your own private transportation to get there. The elephant-shaped mountain Khao Chang is the primary destination for tourists.
Bike riding in Bang Krachao
South of Bangkok lies the region known as Bang Krachao, which has an artificial island. It is possible to get there by vehicle or boat thanks to the short distance from Bangkok, which makes it convenient for day trips. You may explore the city’s riverbank communities and the surrounding forest by bicycle, thanks to the city’s many cycling paths, which are surrounded by rivers and woods on all sides.
The modest coastal town of Bang Krachao is more than simply a beach; it is great for nature enthusiasts with its hidden natural treasures and gorgeous forest landscape. The town is located on the coast of the Gulf of Thailand. In point of fact, it is referred to as the “Green Lung of Bangkok,” and because it is situated around 65 kilometers away from Bangkok and draws the majority of the attention of tourists, this location is not well-known among travelers. It is ideal for getting away from the hustle and bustle of city life, since it is affordable for people of all income levels, boasts a stunning scenery, pleasant and sunny weather, complete tranquillity, and yet offers enough variety to ensure one is never bored.
