TCEB Joins Forces With MOTS To Promote Thailand As A World Major Sporting Events Hub By Bringing “L’Étape Thailand by Le Tour de France” for the first time ever in Southeast Asia
Phang Nga, the world’s famous well known for very beautiful beaches and sceneries, is the chosen host city to welcome global cycling enthusiasts to experience the Legend of the Tour de France.
L’Étape Thailand by Le Tour De France, the world's greatest cycling race, will be in Phang Nga between 19 - 21 October 2018. The race day will be on 21 October.
L’Étape Thailand provides amateur riders with an experience as close to riding in the Tour de France as it is possible to get with fully closed roads and a mountainous course that gives an experience that is the equal of a mountainous stage of the Tour de France.
Over 80% of Phang Nga is hilly areas and the province does not have much road traffic, which has made the province perfect and challenging as a cycling destination as it has shared some of geographical features as France. Phang Nga has its unique landscape combined with more than 155 beautiful islands in the Andaman. Cyclists can also enjoy the shades of big trees and picturesque seascape during the ride. Starting from Khao Lak this year, there are two route options, 140km and 70km. The starting point is also the centre of hotels and facilities. Cyclists will later ride through the old charms of Sino-Portuguese architecture and many other elements of the city, which will leave good impressions home with them.
