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...

Touring in North East Vietnam with Painted Roads was a unique and rewarding experience. Each day was rich and full with new discoveries: rice terraces, incredible jungled pinnacles, deep valleys, breathtaking views, painted-like mountain profiles, hill tribes people dressed in their beautiful traditional costumes attending their daily duties, rural life, busy local markets, remote villages, flocks of children and friendly smiles. After a day standing the challenge of ever ‘undulating’ terrain, the simple, fresh and lovely food cooked in a local restaurant made the perfect ambiance for a convivial dinner.

Anna Rolando on Vietnam - Northeast

A brilliant two weeks in the Khangai National Park that I'd heartily recommend to anyone looking for challenging but manageable riding in beautiful scenery. The cliches about Mongolian hospitality are true and you will be made to feel more than welcome by both the locals and the support team who, along with David's usual "Painted Roads" level of care and attention, will ensure your comfort and wellbeing are always given top priority. 

Phil Hurcom - London on Mongolia

I would not have brought my wife and sister along on a trip like this if I did not have the confidence and trust in David’s ability as a leader and a person who understands human nature and the psychological needs of the people in his care. I was not disappointed and he proved once again to be the competent leader I got to know on my Tibet/Nepal trip three years ago. I could highly recommend this team to anybody thinking of doing a cycle trip in any remote region of Asia.
