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!

The inaugural Tri Nations tour appealed to me as it traverses three distant lands, combining adventure and mystique. And so for me it became my third Painted Roads tour. I find David Walker's tours so different in that his personal attention covers all the things you expect whilst also helping you take care of all the little things you forgot to bring This tour gives a taste of it all..from cycling in the high country and magical scenery with buddies for far afield that soon become friends..to super downhills, and snacks by a cool shady stream. The tour has hills, and more hills, but it also has long stretches of flat passing though remote villages where people's lives can be seen and experienced, cooking, working, and even rice whiskey distillation in the back shed. The tour is relaxed, but the attention to detail behind the scenes on this tour makes it all work like clockwork, just turn up, cycle, and have a fabulous time - and of course a cold beer always greets a weary traveller come day’s end...the David Walker way, you’ll just love it...I did."

What a good decision it turned out to be; What a great company Painted Roads was to deal with. From my first general enquiry through to booking the tour, David Walker (Painted Roads) made every step just so easy. Nothing was too much trouble. David’s and his trusty teams easy / professional style and absolute attention to our every need and whim leading up to and during our tour was faultless.
