Leaving Bangkok, the riders will hug the coast of the Gulf of Thailand with palm trees, sand and warm waters on one side and forested mountains on the other. Stopping for a rest day in Thailand’s oldest beach resort, Hua Hin, participants may meet the country’s king who spends much of his time here.
Further south the route turns sharply west towards the Burmese border and the coastal road along the Andaman Sea. There will be some challenging climbing here, our first since leaving Vietnam, and the riders will subsequently enjoy their rest day in Ao Nang, possibly kayaking around the area’s stunning islands.
The expedition then turns back inland and crosses into Malaysia before heading over the causeway into historic Georgetown, Penang, the end of this sun-soaked section.
