Full description

After being transferred by van from your hotel, you will enjoy a scenic boat trip to the island of Yao Noi, Phuket’s quiet neighbor. The boat trip takes 30 or 60 minutes, depending on the type of boat used. During this 12-kilometer morning ride, you will explore the picturesque countryside of Koh Yao Noi. You will bike through the main market town of the island, through mangrove forests, rubber plantations, and even a fishing village on stilts. You will also learn about sustainable farming during a visit to a farm surrounded by rice paddies. At midday, stop at a quiet beach for a picnic, swimming, and relaxing. From the beach, take in beautiful views of Phang Nga Bay.

During the 10-kilometer afternoon ride (mostly on paved roads), you will enjoy wide ocean views as you cycle along the empty beaches of the east coast of Koh Yao Noi. This day is a mix of nature, culture and fun at the beach.

Excellent tour and highly recommended to anyone looking for an authentic Thai experience close to Phuket away from the masses. You‘ll have the chance to explore beautiful and calm Ko Yao Noi (small-scale farming, mangroves, rubber plantations etc.) by bike in a small group, meet its friendly residents and swim/hang out on a quiet beach of a neughbouring micro-island. Tour was perfectly organised and guided by experienced Day and Joris (speaks English, Thai, French and German) who took care of safety, didn‘t rush, served delicious food and gave interesting explanations of things to see on the island and around. Thank you very much!

Joris made us discover an authentic Thailand, while pedaling and adapting to our level. Hyper flexible, offering us to stop if we wanted to take pictures. It was very nice. The bikes are good. We had a great time. Thanks to Joris and José our guide.

Great tour to get to know a little "real" Thailand. The bike course is well selected and offers a good mix. The guides pass on a lot of knowledge and make you feel safe at all times.
