Embark on a 3 day cycling journey through northern Thailand’s authentic countryside. Ride around small villages, see temples and meet up with hill tribes people.

This Thailand tour is a wonderful way to explore the area known as Sop Ruak, the official centre of the Golden Triangle - which is where the Nam Ruak and Mekong rivers meet. This area has for centuries been the crossroads for border trade between Thailand, Burma and Laos. Located in Chiang Rai province, the most northerly of all the 76 in Thailand, the Golden Triangle itself is steeped in history and did not become part of Thailand until the 1880s. Taking you into the heart of the countryside to areas usually missed by most visitors, this tour allows you to really see and feel what living in this part of Thailand is all about.
