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...

NE Vietnam is a very special place, and I can't imagine doing it any other way than on a bicycle - with Painted Roads of course. I was so sorry it was over. Could have done it all over again! So thank you for making it such a memorable trip. Great organisation, great fun, but also great care and concern when some of us were wilting in the extreme heat. And thanks to Phong, Mr Thang and Mr Chung. What a team. Looking forward to the next one!

This was my second tour with Painted Roads and I was certainly not disappointed. Having come to expect a real focus on delighting the customer, Walks and his crew went out of their way to ensure our every desire was catered for. From the pre-tour communications to the on-tour briefings and support by David and the local guide Nat, nothing was left to chance, and we could just immerse ourselves in the local culture and scenery while riding. While this tour is long and hot, there were plenty of stops for refreshments and the cold beer at the end of the day made the whole ride worth it. I would definitely recommend this tour to anyone who enjoys good company, good food and accommodation and of course some great cycling. Well done David Walker. See you on another tour soon.

Due mainly to my personal circumstances this is the second time that I have participated on the Yunnan tour in 12 months. Of course I would not have contemplated repeating my Yunnan experience if I did not consider that it was the best of the 10 tours that I have been on over the last 5 years. If anything I would say the 2016 tour was even more enjoyable than my 2015 experience. From the routes, tea breaks, accommodation, food, scenery, guides and drivers I did not hear one word of criticism from anybody in the group. This success is based on the personality, efficiency and dedication of the leader, David Walker and his template should be followed by all tour leaders.
