As Central Thailand continues to be effected by floods we wanted to give you an update from SpiceRoads and how it has effected our cycle tours in Central Thailand.
While the province of Ayutthaya continues to be one of the worst effected area, there is still and element of uncertainty as to the the impact that it will have on Bangkok. Currently there are 7 districts on high alert in the north of Bangkok, but it is hoped that Central Bangkok (where most tourists are) will escape. However, there are mixed reports and the situation is subject to change.
All our tours that visit Ayutthaya are effected and we are diverting them to avoid this area and all proposed changes will not effect the quality and enjoyment of the tour. The effected tours are Cycling Central Thailand, Cycling Chiang Mai to Bangkok and Kanchanaburi Hills. Guests who are looking to do these trip should consult with SpiceRoads to discuss the options.
In addition the following day tours are all currently suspended until further notice:
All our other tours are running as normal and there are plenty of opportunities for people to carry on their holiday as normal. We will continue to monitor the situation closely and update you as necessary.
SpiceRoads is contacting all customers who are booked onto effected trips. Any customer booked on a cancelled trip is entitled to a full refund or to transfer to another trip.
The North and South of Thailand are not effected by the current flooding, so Thailand still provided the opportunity for a great holiday for those visiting.
