Product Description

  • AVAILABILITY: On request, with a minimum of 2 pax booked
  • MODE OF TRANSPORT: Van + mountain bike
  • APPROXIMATE TIMING: 09.00 – 13.00
  • ITINERARY: This is a rare opportunity to have some contact with “real” local people (not those who spend their lives working with tourists). The tour starts in Krabi Town, when you will cross the river the traditional way, on a longtail ferry boat designed to carry bikes. Disembark at a traditional fishing village on the island of Koh Klang, a fascinating heritage area where the way of life has not changed significantly for generations.

    With its 80 year old wooden houses built out onto the water, the island is home to a small community of Thai Muslims and Buddhists, who also grow rice and farm using traditional methods. There are no roads, so you will use the criss-cross network of paths that lead from houses to fields. The islanders are friendly and, with the help of your guide, you will be able to get an insight into their daily life and work on the farms – even hanging out at a coffee shop where you will stop to sample some Thai snacks.

    The island is located in a protected mangrove area, near the mouth of the river; many coastal birds can also be spotted as you cycle around.

    Total distance covered: 19km with frequent stops; completely flat terrain is excellent for all ability levels.

    Expected group size: 2 – 10 pax, depending on the day and time of year.

    Important: Children who participate must have a minimum age of 10 years or a minimum height of 140cm.
