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.

David kept the riders together as a cohesive group with his quick wit and never ending entertaining stories. He made sure he always behind the last person no matter how tedious it must have been for him at times, always stopping for photos when requested and never showing impatience at the many delays and demands of the different needs of the group. A perfect group leader. Phong entertained us with his local knowledge of the tribes, rice and hemp growing. He always ordered the most delicious meals and acted as an interpreter when needed. He was always upbeat and funny and I looked forward to seeing him each day.

The tour delivered just what was promised! An escape from the UK Autumn to great weather, white sandy beaches and a chance to see the Thailand bypassed by so many tourists. I’ve been lucky enough to go on several cycle holidays, and I can without any hesitation say that David ‘Walks’ Walker is the best tour guide I’ve come across. He just makes sure that everything works – the group wanted for nothing and whilst out on the road he cruised effortlessly up and down the group making sure each of us was OK. This was my second tour with David, and it certainly won’t be my last!
