“Great trip in Cha am”

Cha am Bicycle Tours
Ranked #3 of 8 Tours in Cha-am
Attraction details
Reviewed April 13, 2013

We stayed a couple of days near Cha am. Our first excursion was this bicycle trip in Cha am and it was a fine introduction to the Thai culture and way of living. The guide, Na, picked us up at the hotel. She gave us a tour around the Cha am market, rice fields, an old rice factory and a temple (+ museum). Everywhere she gave a good explanation (in good English) of the history and the local habits. The tempo was fine for us: enough time to look around.
If you're interested in a quiet ride in Cha am and find out more about the local culture, this is something you really must do.
We enjoyed it a lot. Thank you Na.

We were only in Cha Am for 4 days but I gained so much by taking a few hours away from the hotel.

I was met very promptly by Na and we picked up the rest of the small group. This tour is by bike but it’s very steady, if you can sit on a bike you can manage the tour.

First stop was the market, Na seemed to know everyone and it was lovely being taken from stall to stall, munching on the produce as we went and starting to understand about some of the more exotic produce. Then on to the paddy fields, a school, then to see the nuns, then to a temple, followed by the rice factory and then to a traditional village. We then shared an excellent lunch.

If you only leave your hotel once when you are in Cha Am or Hua Hin do this trip, it will give you an insight into the culture lead by a very relaxed and informative guide.

A nice touch was you only pay at the end of the trip, maybe that’s how confident Na is that you’re going to have a fantastic time.

It might be best to book before you arrive as I get the impression as this tour get publicised on sites like Trip Advisor is going to start selling out quickly.

If we visit the area again the rest of the family, who stayed by the pool this time, have made me promise that I’ll take them.

Na is the host of the tour, and after a small introduction on safety, and instructions over a cup of coffee, we were soon on our way. This is a gentle and lovely tour, full of local information on culture, food and the local area. i will not add more to spoil the surprise of the tour, but just to say this is a great way to spend 6 hours. The bikes are safe and well maintained. Na carries a First Aid Kit on her bike, wtih cold drinks and you can stop anytime for photos or water. Highly recommended.

We promised Pi Na , our friendly tour guide, to write a short story on Tripadvisor because we realy enjoyed the tour. She introduced us to several friends in the village all with their own interesting things to show and to tell.
This varied fom a very old wooden rice factory which they put back in operation for us to an old family commune where four generations live togerther under a big wooden house.
One of the things we really enjoyed was the nursery school for children of poor families.They welcomed us with their songs en we joined them in a litle game. But also the nuns village , a buddhacave, the farmers museum and the lady ghost house gave us interesting stories.
Many stops , cold towels , drinks , snacks to try at the market and at the end a nice Thai lunch in a garden restaurant were part of the tour. For us it was the highlight of our holiday.
