Bicycle Touring Thailand
Here are a blog posts and videos covering bicycle touring in Thailand.
I entered Thailand on my 19th day after leaving Hanoi, Vietnam, and it was the final phase of my January 2019, bicycle tour of SE Asia.
Of the four countries I visited, Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia, and Thailand; It was the only one I had been to before. My previous trip was twenty years earlier, and I was eager to see what had changed.
The first thing I noticed when I crossed the border from Cambodia is that the mopeds all but disappeared. It was apparent that Thailand had a booming middle class, and there were a lot of cars.
The prices in Thailand, although still inexpensive by Western standards, was significantly higher. A beer at a bar will cost you about $4 (I gauge everything by beer prices).
Regardless of prices, it’s a beautiful country with the friendliest people and the food, in my opinion, can’t be beaten.
