THAILAND CYCLING ROUTE MAPS
Below are maps of routes that we had cycled in Thailand. This includes cycling in the provinces of South Thailand during a tour in mid-2016 & a tour of Isan Thailand at the end of 2016.
The maps are dynamically scroll-able and zoom. Click on relevant screen zoom rectangle (at the top right hand corner of each map) to go to the respective route map:


Chiang Khan To Pak Chom Isan Thailand Cycling Route Map (43.16km)
Cycling Route Chiangkhanburi Hotel>Phajoamnang Temple>Wat Tha Samran>Pak Chom Food Market>Rim Khong Resort (Pak Chom).
Cycling Distance: 43.16 km.          |             Level: Medium
The route runs along Route 211 and mostly hugs the Mekong but at a few sections do cut inland to avoid the cliffs at the river side. It is an interesting route passing by small towns and rural scenes.

Khlong Thom to Krabi to Ko Yao Islands to Phuket Thailand Cycling Route Map (67.23km)

Cycling Route - Khlong Thom>Krabi>Phuket.

In actuality, we did not cycle this planned route as a couple of us fell sick and we took a van from Khlong Thom to Phuket (dirve route is shown in red & blue). Our aborted cycling plans was from Khlong Thom to Krabi, stay a night there. Following day was suppose to be as ferry ride to the Kho Yao islands, with a night there to enjoy beach-lazing. After that it was another ferry to Phuket town. This aborted cycling route is shown in orange, and ferry rides in green. Click on ship icon to see the names of ferry terminals.

Nong Khai To Vientiane Thailand-Lao Cycling Route Map (27.27km)

The route is rather flat and started off with a bit of rural road cycling approaching the Thai-Lao Friendship Bridge.

Nonthaburi To British Cycle Square To Ko Kret Bangkok Thailand Cycling Route Map (23.82km)
 
Total Distance: 48.15 km.     Cycling Distance: 23.82 km.          |         Level: Medium (due to the busy traffic along the streets of Bangkok).
From Nonthaburi, we took on the crazily busy streets of Bangkok to reach British Cycle Square and from there took a short car ride for some calm cycling on Ko Kret, an island in the middle of the Chao Phraya. Would have been an easy ride except for having to traverse across the busy streets of Bangkok.
