Grasshopper Adventures – Celebrating 15 years of cycling Asia
Join Grasshopper Adventures’ anniversary trip this November on their most innovative tour: Thailand Bike, Boat & Beach!
Grasshopper Adventures, the Leader in Asia Bike Tours is marking their 15th Anniversary with a celebratory Bike, Boat & Beach Thailand tour, hosted by company CEO, Adam Platt-Hepworth and tour design virtuoso, Steve Grace, the mastermind of the Bike & Boat tour range.
This is a new tour for the company, but one that takes place in Thailand, where it all started. Back in 2004, in a traditional wooden Bangkok house, Grasshopper Adventures was born and Kanchanaburi was an early area of interest for the team as they sought out the stories and geography that would go on to shape the iconic trips that the company now offers.
The New Bike & Boat Range
Grasshopper Adventures launched the market-first product range of Bike & Boat tours in 2018 with the Mekong Bike & Boat. With strong interest from their customers and immediate uptake by the media, Grasshopper have now launched an India Bike & Boat and this new, Thailand Bike, Boat & Beach.
Grasshopper CEO Adam Platt-Hepworth said of the tours, “These active river cruise trips are a game changer in our view and are making an active adventure in Asia so much more accessible and achievable for more people. The ability to unpack once and the added flexibility to choose a long ride, a short ride or to join the non-riding group for the day has been really well received by our travelers. When it came to selecting an anniversary tour, this one was a no brainer. Such a great opportunity to draw on the heritage of the company and introduce one of our newest concepts”
Special Celebratory Tour
The trip starts with a night bike exploration of Bangkok, then spends four days on the River Kwai in Kanchanaburi, the location of the Thai-Burma Railway and associated historical POW memorials and museums. The tour wraps up with three days on the beautiful, secluded island of Koh Yao near Phuket where there are some optional kayaking and walking activities.
This one-off anniversary trip runs from November 10th to 17th, 2019
