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...

We cycled through some amazing parts of Vietnam. I'm sure parts you wouldn't normally get to see on a bus tour. The people are so friendly and excited to see some people from a different country, albeit briefly as we cruise past. but as we cycled through each town/village, cries of "hello" "hello" greeted us and even the odd high-5. All the kids would run onto the streets to get a glimpse of the tourists, wondering who was visiting their distant world. It was very humbling and we felt like movie stars. They don't have a lot but you wouldn't know it based on the big smiles and waves that came our way. An experience hard to describe and impossible to capture in a photo.

David Sulivan on Vietnam - Mekong Delta Region

I can’t imagine there’s a better way to explore Mongolia than by bike, the landscapes and terrain are stunning and surprisingly varied. The cycling is not overly technical but does have some very small sections of steep downhill, challenging climbs on loose surfaces and fun river crossings to keep it exciting everyday. Nights are very relaxed and spent resting tired legs, chatting with a beer and watching the herders bring their flocks home. You also get the added benefit of the sky being totally unspoiled by light pollution so the stars are amazing on clear nights.

Keith Evans - London on Mongolia

This was my first bike tour, even though there were some challenging ascents along the way, it was thoroughly enjoyable, the memories of this trip will stay with me for a long time. The group was professionally led by David and Jos, forever close at hand, and with the backup team everything ran ever so smoothly, in a word “faultless”. Thank you David and Echo for the most memorable trip and hope to see you again in the very near future.
