Thailand Mountain Biking Tour in Phang Nga Province
Tucked between two tourist Meccas – Phuket and Krabi – Phang Nga Province offers mountain biking opportunities for adventurous travelers as well as experienced cyclists.
No real mountain biking experience is required, though you will likely enjoy yourself more if you have a bit of familiarity. You can choose from a variety of itineraries that range from very mild to rather wild. Check out our main mountain biking website for more info.
Our philosophy is that mountain bikes are meant to be ridden offroad! Therefore, we spend an incredible amount of time finding trails instead of following roads.
Anyone can look at Google Earth and find a way from point A to point B. Doing it offroad requires more work... that's what we enjoy doing.
General Cycling Tour Information:
If you're not into speed, we can cater to your desires. Don’t worry about getting tired. This is not meant to be a physical challenge. Mountain biking allow you to get closer to nature and to travel in relative silence.
Simple hotel in Phang Nga Town or home-stay.
Phang Nga Bay Mountain Biking Day Trip
Our mountain biking guide on Ko Yao Noi was born and raised on the island. His knowledge of the trails and island culture is unmatched.
If you desire a tough day of single track trails, that is what you'll get. If you'd like an easy day on secondary and back roads, that's fine. If you'd like a mixture of hard and easy, that is what you'll get.
You'll head out to the middle of Phang Nga Bay to Ko Yao Noi via the public ferry. This is the most responsible way to get there. Once at the main pier on Ko Yao Noi, you're guide will meet you to start your cycling adventure. Lunch and snacks are, of course, provided.
All in all, this is a wonderful way to see one of the few places in the region that hasn't been gobbled up by mass tourism. Ko Yao Noi has retained its charm and natural beauty. If you'd like to spend more than one day on the island, that's possible too. If you'd like to combine mountain biking with kayaking or rock climbing, that's easy to arrange.

Phang Nga Province
This cycling destination is off-the-beaten-path. Winding roads pass through spectacular limestone karst mountains and through rubber plantations. You will be on paved road at times and off-road as well. There are countless single tracks through the jungle and countryside.
There is an optional visit a cave temple in one village. A villager won the lottery and spent some of the money on making the temple more attractive. Sturdy stairs take you to the elevated caves. The hand railing is solid and the footing is secure. There are several caves within the temple. As you’ll be in a religious site, you’ll need to dress appropriately. We will supply women with sarongs to cover their legs. Shoes, of course, are left at the base of the stairs.
Just a hundred meters from the temple, there’s a cave that leads all the way to another village. The cave has a creek running through it. Your mountain bikes will be waiting for you on the other side.
Hazards will be dealt with as needed. If we come to a place that looks slippery or dangerous, we will likely walk the bikes. Some side hikes are also available. This is a mountain biking trip, but it’s also a nature and culture tour. You will be part of a very flexible journey through back country with opportunities to engage with the locals. Each day’s travel distance is up to the group’s inertia / energy. It ain’t a race.
We have set itineraries for two-day and three-day trips, but we can custom tailor your trip to suit your particular desires. You can also combine our Phang Nga Province mountain biking trip with our Phang Nga Province hiking trip. If you want a truly unique adventure, check out our Coast to Coast Expedition. You'll ride all the way from the Andaman Sea side of the Malay Peninsula all the way to the Gulf of Thailand side. This is mostly off-road and designed for those who wish to be challenged and rewarded as well.
