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...

The tour was better than I had anticipated.  The brochure pretty much explained what we were in for, but it was just so interesting.  Some of the paths were quite narrow, some of the bridges were 'interesting' to cross and some of the roads were quite rough but the bikes we had hired were perfect.  The weather, well you couldn't have asked for anything better, cloudy most days with a few showers which actually were quite welcome to cool us down.  Everything ran so smoothly, just like the traffic, it just flowed. Seeing the countryside away from the cities and the people who were just so excited to see us 'westerners' was great. Definitely would recommend this tour, it was TERRIFIC!

Very happy to have participated to the Northern Thailand tour, I had a great time. A bicycle is such an ideal way to discover a country! The scenery was stunning, far away from the beaten tracks, the weather great, the food excellent, the members of the group all lovely people. The Northern Thailand tour was the third cycling tour which I did with David as tour leader. And again David proved his excellent skills. Dedicated and very concerned about our wellbeing: faster, or a slower cyclist as I am, he shows that he has a heart for all of us, and that is what makes the difference to other cycling tours. The local guide Natt and driver Gor did also their outmost to make us feel as real VIPs!

Having just completed the Yunnan, China Tour as my second cycling adventure with Painted Roads I can say that the experience was both challenging and rewarding. I was not an experienced cyclist when I embarked on this adventure but with encouragement and support from your team I believe I have stepped up a notch in my ability, and more importantly in my self-belief of what I can achieve.  Giving up 2km from the top of a 22km climb may have been an option, but as I was reminded, I had done the hard yards and there were “only 2km to the top,” so up I went.
