Colourful Cycling Holidays in Asia

Relaxed guided bicycle tours throughout South East Asia & China

Painted Roads specialises in relaxed, fun, small group guided bicycle tours in a variety of destinations in South-East Asia and China. As well as sharing with you our love of Thailand, Vietnam and Laos we also have an in-depth knowledge of some less-well known cycling holiday destinations so we hope you will also join us on one of our unforgettable cycle tours of Yunnan, Guizhou and Guanxi in China, and Taiwan, or Sri-Lanka.

All of our cycling holidays feature western tour leaders and local guides. Our philosophy is based around offering an intimate exploration by bicycle of personally crafted tours through stunning rural locales in destinations around Asia.  Our  tours include comfortable accommodation, delicious local cuisine, a support vehicle and minimal transfers. We want your biking holiday with us to be a truly memorable experience for all the right reasons so we place as much emphasis on post-cycling relaxation, convivial company, and an apres-ride beer in a warm Asian sunset as the biking itself.

 

A superb tour through a fascinating region, brilliantly led by David and Phong. Both clearly love what they do and this translates into an exceptional level of service. The tour itself is full of surprises, diverse ethnic villages, the awesome rocky plateau and the beauty of the rice terraces. I thoroughly enjoyed myself and would recommend it to anyone who thinks they have “done” South East Asia.

Feedback on our Asian Cycle Touring Holidays

Some things our clients have said...

We thoroughly enjoyed the Yunnan. The local people were really friendly and the scenery was superb. Cathy, the very accomplished cycling guide and the two drivers, both called Li, and our tour guide David of course, made us feel that they could cope with any eventuality. Echo looked after our every need. We also enjoyed the company of our fellow travellers, together with the crew, and had lots of laughs along the way, whilst staying in comfortable, attractive and friendly accommodation. We would definitely recommend this tour.

Pat & Keith Green on China - Yunnan

We thoroughly enjoyed our second Southern Thailand tour . David and Natt our leaders managed our mixed group of age and ability to ensure that everyone had a good experience and could enjoy the holiday to the full. The back up crew of Gor and Ton were invaluable in their support, without the food and drink van we would have expired in the heat!

Mary & David Turrell on Thailand - South

What I find his most important asset is that all participants get the impression that David is personally looking out for them and that his bottom line is not foremost in his thoughts, giving the result that accommodation, meals, snacks and hire bikes are probably the best you will find on any Asian tour. I encourage anybody who is thinking about going on a cycling tour where PaintedRoads has a presence to first make contact with David before deciding on a specific company - you will not be disappointed.
