One-day cycle tour east of Chiang Mai

This cycling trip focuses on the rural Thailand and experiencing the local people who mostly work in agriculture. It's the perfect match for those who have ridden one of our tours south of Chiang Mai before. The cycling tour starts outside the city and continues on carefully selected roads. Anyone with an average condition can ride this tour
You will be picked up from your hotel as scheduled and brought to the starting point of the trip outside the city. After a short safety briefing we start our exploration of the Thai countryside. We cycle on quiet roads and ride alternately along rice fields, canals, orchards and fields with a wide variety of agricultural crops. We will stop regularly so you can get better acquainted with the local population and its agrarian culture. This tour gives you a clear picture of the diversity of the beautiful rural Thailand. Enroute, we visit a local folk museum and stop at several small projects with seasonal-related activities. We also pass a Chinese cemetery which is very well known in this region. Around noon, we have a typical Thai lunch at a local restaurant. After a visit to the nearby lake, we ride along country roads through rice fields and small villages back to Chiang Mai. At the end of the cycle tour you will be picked up and brought back to the hotel.
