Pedal Power in Southeast AsiaChiang Mai, Thailand

If the idea of cycling roughly 80 kilometres a day through the lush northern countryside of Thailand and Laos sounds like the active holiday of your dreams, we’ve got the excursion for you. The Chiang Mai to Luang Prabang tour with Art of Bicycle Trips is a 14-day two-wheel extravaganza, navigating the paddy fields, rainforests and deep valleys of this diverse region. Plus, cycling gives you the chance to slow down, breath and take in so much more of this incredible countryside.

The route follows the Mekong, Kok, Nam Ou and Nam Pak rivers, with pit stops scheduled at many of the local communities and Buddhist wats. A traditional Mekong riverboat cruise provides safe passage to Laos, giving you much-needed respite from the (seemingly) endless pedalling, plus a glimpse into this particularly remote section of the famous river. You’ll also get to visit some of the least-touristed spots of Laos, like Muang Khua, where life slows right down.

The 14-day Art of Bicycle Trips starts at about US$3,200.
