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...

David, your tour was everything that I hoped it might be, it ticked all the boxes right from the evaluation of, to making right bike maintenance, managing 12 distinct personalities while keeping your own. Your support crew were fantastic, always ready to help and most of the time were one step ahead of ones needs. The Thailand that you gave us a glimpse of was the friendly smiling Thailand as opposed to the rather seedy commercial tourist spots. I would recommend this tour to anyone who would like a humorous, laid back good time

The best way to see a country is by bicycle and Painted Roads' tour of the Mekong Delta demonstrates this point in spades. We saw, smelled, tasted and experienced things in this amazing country that you could not otherwise experience except on a guided cycling trip, conducted by organisers who know the intricacies of the land. This trip takes you to places you would otherwise be totally unaware of. It is all about experiencing the Viet Nam that is off the beaten tourist track and what a hugely rewarding experience that turns out to be.

If you think China is busy, noisy, polluted and overcrowded then think again. This bike tour explores a beautiful and varied landscape taking you through areas which are still rural and undeveloped. Each day is different, and the roads are unbelievably deserted for the most part. Spectacular descents and interesting winding climbs provide for some great vistas. The tour organisation, leadership and back-up was first rate, and the food immeasurably better than most ‘Chinatown’ fare.
