The tour starts with a pick up from your hotel or the airport/train station and drive to Nam Phrae district where you can check-in at your small paradise, a nature resort with bungalows built on stilts about 2 meters above the ground in traditional Thai style. Relax on the huge private balcony with a view of the saltwater swimming pool and the lush garden. The bungalows are built from recycled teak wood, and each has a very big private balcony with comfortable benches. Underneath the bungalow you can relax in a hammock. The bungalows have all the amenities you expect (air conditioning, fridge, TV, a safety box), and the same goes for the bathrooms (rain shower, hot water, hairdryer, shampoo, etc.). This is one of the few places in Thailand where you can still stay in this style of houses.
Experience the Thai countryside while cycling through traditional villages with wooden houses on stilts, ride through the rice fields along lazy back roads and the forest areas connecting the small villages. The tour explores the lifestyle of local farmers and explains the process of seasonal rice farming. Encounters such as water buffaloes crossing the street or children surprised by the unusual sight of foreigners cycling through their village can be expected. There is sufficient time to stop, have a rest or refreshment and chat with the villagers to get a feeling of the local life. Overnight at the same resort
After a delicious breakfast you start a self-guided adventure on your bikes. A detailed route description will ensure a relaxing trip.
