Bangkok to Krabi (Thailand - December)

Hello Friends

I am heading to Thailand in December and will be going from Bangkok to Krabi on bicycle covering the coastal route. I'd end the ride in any of the island their around New Years eve.

I will be starting from Bangkok, heading towards east coast and then move to Ranong on west coast down o Krabi.

Anyone traveling around the same time to Thailand and would like to be my partner in crime for this madness?

Cheers! KP

Hi Kanishka.

Hi Kanishka.

What a nice ride you've got lined up, I cycled form Bangkok to Singapore last year. Just thought I'd mention that where you're getting a mini bus out of Bangkok, it's fine to ride it. There are hard shoulders the whole way, it's just a little busy. All the way down to Chumphon is highways anyway.

Have fun!

Hey Paz

Hey!

I am so excited already :D I am actually thinking of riding all the way from Bangkok and chuck the idea of minibus. But lets see, i am flexible on it and will probably go as the companion would feel comfortable with.

Cheers! KP

I'm still keen

Hey I didn't realize you were thinking of a mini bus...or maybe I forgot� I'm still keen to come along from Bangkok all the way down the coast. Just wondering if you've checked out how to get transport back after New Years? It's nice to have something to look forward to. I'm getting excited but need to get myself organized with a plan and gear!
Cheers

thailand route

KP, i am landing in Bangkok on Dec 15th and heading south towards Koh Lanta. My third trip to Thailand, but first on the bike. A buddy from USA may join, but that is up in the air. Would like to catch up with some other riders to make an adventure of it. I need to leave on January 7th, but pretty flexible on everything. let me know if you have some updates, cheers, Bobby

Update

Small Update on my plans

Hola friends

I have finally booked my tickets and now will be reaching Bangkok on 22nd December early morning and would probably like to start moving on 22nd evening or 23rd morning itself. I would like to reach Krabi before the New Years Eve (30th Dec maybe) and shall be there for a week maybe before flying back.

Cheers! L{

From Bangkok to the South

Hi,
I arrive on 14th December in Bangkok and plan to cycle al the way to Malaysia - but will see how far and where the road gets me. Have to be back in Bangkok on 9th January. I guess I will take a train out of Bangkok (I have been there many times, definitely not a place where I want to ride). I will travel really light (at least that is my plan) - but will take a small tent with me use it wherever I can (plan to go to the national parks). I dont have any special plans - I booked my ticket 5 minutes ago, but I have been in Thailand many times, but never in this part (although I could be tempted to go to the North as well - Chiang Mai and along the Burmese border in the hills).
I just want to enjoy 3 weeks cycling - climbing up some nice hills, eating great Thai food and see the unseen side of the country (and of course some nice beaches too). From the South I think I will just take a train back to Bangkok.
I can see some of us will be out there the same time - if you want to meet, ride for a while together, I would be really happy :)

Riding north too

Hi Frida,
I'm flying into Bangkok on the 12th then getting the overnight train to go north to Chiang Mai with my bike then ride back south. If you like I will wait for your arrival and we can travel north together. I'll be meeting Kanishna on the 22nd in Bangkok and we're continuing south together. I'll also be traveling light with a tent. Please let me know what you think and if this will suit your plans. You can also email me directly at tiwanam@hotmail.com
Cheers
