The Red Spokes Laos and Thailand bicycle holiday is our most popular cycling tour. Beginning in Northern Thailand, our route on this fascinating trip takes us through Northern Laos, then south towards the capital Vientiane. On our Laos and Thailand cycling tours you will enjoy some of the most breath-taking scenery to be found in Asia.
Laos is a beautiful, quiet country and still relatively untouched by the western values. It is mountainous and land-locked, with a population of only 6 million who have a reputation for being amongst the most friendly and welcoming people in the world. With such spectacular surroundings and a rich and diverse culture what better way could there be to see Laos and Thailand than the view from a bicycle?
The Laos Thailand cycling tour enters Laos across the Mekong River from Thailand, you will enjoy a spectacular boat trip to Pak Beng, before exploring the lush jungles of the northern mountains. We cycle on through Laos, encountering traditional life in hill tribe villages, en route to Luang Prabang, a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1995. This ancient royal city, full of exquisite Buddhist Temples, where time seems to stand still, is a magical place to explore and relax. We cycle on undertaking some serious bike riding, through rolling hills and past fishing villages on our journey towards the sleepy capital of Vientiane, situated on the banks of the Mekong.
