BIKE2BASICS is a holistic multiple transport and biking adventure that takes you along a “Slow-Life Route” along the coast west of Bangkok and through Thailand’s smallest province. En route we visit the famous ‘TRAIN MARKET” of Maeklong as well as the UNESCO protected waterfront community of AMPHAWA. Our founder Michael’s years of exploring and mapping his mother’s home province allowed him to craft some of the most scenic routes in central Thailand. The cycling part starts at the Vanguard Basecamp north of Amphawa and consists of approx.30km of flat terrain. We are cycling deep into some of Thailand’s largest and most fertile fruit and coconut plantations making it a journey back in time to communities, markets and a slow pace of life that let you understand the culture and essence of rural Thailand. Even experienced cyclists who had cycled throughout Thailand have been truly impressed by the scenery and fun-factor and local cyclist are always surprised by the intricacy of our trails. The tour ends at our Basecamp where you can go for a swim in the canals or enjoy the sunset at this secluded time-bubble. A private taxi or van will transfer us back to Bangkok, provided that after that day you still want to go back. Bike2Basics can also be enjoyed with overnight stay and followed by second day of amazing cycling to the famous floating market in Ratchaburi and other local highlights.

>WARNING!<

This is not a biking trip for beginners, this is an adventure trip. You need to be confident on a bicycle as we cycle single tracks on stilted pathways!!
