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...

A great trip with lots of variety in scenery from hustling busy Hanoi to rice paddies and farmland, followed by mountain scenery and lush thick jungle, to finishing with a relaxing day in the quaint old town of Hoi An.  Hearing about aspects of Vietnamese history and stories of the war from the Vietnamese guide Phong was fascinating and added interest and meaning whilst riding along the Ho Chi Minh trail.  The back-up team of guides and driver were as welcoming, helpful and cheerful as ever, making sure everyone had a happy memorable holiday. I would recommend this cycle tour to anyone wanting to see the real Vietnam in good company.

The North Thailand trip was my first experience with Painted Roads following extensive experience cycling, mostly in Asia over the last 3 years. To say that this trip exceeded my expectations including both enjoyment and previous experience is an understatement. David personally leads all his trips ensuring that individual routes are being continuously assessed and if necessary changed to give the best possible cycling experience with regards both to scenery and traffic. I personally found that all aspects of the trip including meals, snack stops and accommodation - the latter appearing to be chosen with the emphasis on location rather than cost, as highly satisfactory. In summary David leads the trip ensuring continuous humour and consideration for all cycling abilities. I personally look forward to my next trip with Painted Roads later in the year.

This was my second tour with Painted Roads and I was certainly not disappointed. Having come to expect a real focus on delighting the customer, Walks and his crew went out of their way to ensure our every desire was catered for. From the pre-tour communications to the on-tour briefings and support by David and the local guide Nat, nothing was left to chance, and we could just immerse ourselves in the local culture and scenery while riding. While this tour is long and hot, there were plenty of stops for refreshments and the cold beer at the end of the day made the whole ride worth it. I would definitely recommend this tour to anyone who enjoys good company, good food and accommodation and of course some great cycling. Well done David Walker. See you on another tour soon.
