All about the trip
We start our ride from Laem Thap and cycle on a very quiet coastal road to our first stop, a visit to Koh Sirey, home to the largest community of Chao-Le or sea gypsies. Watching them fix their nets or cracking open clams, we see how their lives are still dependent on the sea. Look up and notice the mini Golden Rock, a mini replica from the much-revered shrine in Burma. See and smell the fresh catch of the day with busy merchants crowding in to bid for the best deals at the fishing port.
As we approach downtown, admire the beautiful Sino-Portuguese mansions and shophouses painted in brilliant hues. Now restored as inns and quaint tea-houses, some once had sordid pasts as brothels, gambling houses and opium dens. In the heart of the historical district, Thai Hua Museum once housed a Chinese-language school and now cleverly tells the tale of Chinese migration to Phuket. We pay respect at the Jui Tui Shrine, an important temple for the Phuket Vegetarian Festival before pedaling on to Saphan Hin, a popular park for locals to exercise, and finish our ride with a scenic sea view. To get a bird's eye view of where we have ridden we'll drive up to the top of Khao Khad before dropping you off at your hotel.
We ride a total of 27 km on good roads. There will be short hills to tackle to reach scenic viewpoints. We ride at a leisurely pace with plenty of stops for photos and refreshments to keep you well energized.
