Nice alternative to the beach: bike rides with local guide

Southern Thailand is wonderful, but a bit touristy in some areas. For a fun alternative, try a bike tour with http://www.greenbikingclub.com.

They are based in Khao Lak and do 1/2 day to full day bike rides. We recently went on one of their full day excursions and had a blast. The ride leader was super friendly and - being from the area - was able to take us off the main roads and introduce us to the real Thailand.

We talked to farmers in the rubber and oil plantations, had authentic food at a roadside kitchen, visited a village cooperative making bamboo furniture, went swimming at a spectacular waterfall ... those are just a few of the highlights.

Highly recommended.

Hi

I shall have to book hubby on one of these for January as he often goes biking in and around Khao Lak on his own but an organised tour will be right up his street.

The Green Biking Club office is on the beach road on your right down from the highway in Bang Niang. You can hire bikes (the pedal kind) there even if you don't want to book a tour.

Much easier to report it as self-promotion or advertising if that's what you think it is.

I didn't. Just thought the videos gave a good impression of the trips available.
