Colourful Cycling Holidays in Asia

Relaxed guided bicycle tours throughout South East Asia, China & Mongolia

Painted Roads specialises in relaxed, fun, small group guided bicycle tours in a variety of destinations in South-East Asia, China, and Mongolia. 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, Taiwan, Sri-Lanka, or the wonderful open spaces of Mongolia.

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...

David is a brilliant organiser. Always thoughtful and constantly on duty to help, David and the team made each of us feel special. He was clear with instructions and information and quietly aware of our safety at all times. Nat and the support drivers could not have been more helpful, generous and kind. Nat was invaluable for local information and answered my constant questions with a broad smile. David’s knowledge of the country from a cyclists point of view is extraordinary. He must have researched every road, path and track to give variety to each day and ensure we visited memorable sites. We explored caves, temples, beaches, met monkeys and Buddha’s and were uplifted by stunning views

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.

I highly recommend doing the NE Vietnam tour as the scenery is probably some of the most remarkable backdrops one will ever have a chance to see when cycling.  One needs to see it in person to appreciate all its beauty,  local culture and culinary cuisine. What a great experience.
