Prepare yourself well for your Thai holiday in general, and for your Buzzy Bee Bike adventure in particular. One important thing, cycling is an easy way to conform to social distancing. Of course we make stops, where you still have to respect distance. But a big part of your time you will be pedaling, at safe distance from the rest of the group. It’s recommended to bring a mask. Hand sanitizer is available on location, but a small portable bottle or tube should be brought by yourself if you want to use it during the tour.
If you don’t want to join a group, contact us to find out which options we have for private tours.
On this page we will share relevant information about the Corona virus (COVID-19) situation and how this affects your Buzzy Bee Bike adventures.
If you scroll down, you will also find temporary changes in our policies (for your advantage) and availability (limited).
The Thai government started granting permission for tourists to enter the country. Although this is only interesting for longstay tourists due to the still required 14 day quarantine and the limited amount of people, it’s a start. To make it more interesting to come to Thailand the 30 day visa exemption for tourists is increased to 45 days. Now and then reducing the quarantine period from 14 to 10 days is discussed. Businesses and their customers should still take measures to comply with social distancing rules. In December a ‘new COVID wave’ started spreading, starting from the south. So far there were no decisions made for a lockdown, but strict monitoring is being done in the affected areas. Things can change any moment, check the official websites below for details and changes.

On social media you can find a lot of information, but also a lot of incorrect information. Don’t believe everything you read (in comments) on Facebook and other channels. We recommend to always check information on official websites from the Thai government and organizations to make sure you are aware of the actual situation. This list is not complete and might be expanded if new interesting sources come to our attention. We can’t be held responsible for any incorrect information provided on any of the linked websites, we just recommend to follow the official publications.
Temporary reduced availability
Because of the much lower booking rate we decided to reduce the number time slots for our tours. We will update the availability if new information becomes available concerning tightened or mitigated travel restrictions. If a tour is not available on your preferred day, please look at the day before and after. If then still not found we might have gone to an even lower frequency. You can always contact us to check if we can reopen a time slot if you want to book for at least 2 persons. Unfortunately we can’t do this for just one person.
Temporary change of cancellation policy
We understand that this uncertain period refrains you from planning your holidays. On the other hand the restrictions resulting from social distancing might give you extra time to plan these holidays. We also understand your uncertainty to make a booking. Therefore we made some temporary changes/additions to our standard cancellation policy. For bookings made ONLINE ON OUR OWN WEBSITE between 26 March 2020 and 31 January 2021 for tour participation before 31 March 2021:
- Full refund if cancellation requested by email more than 7 days before departure.
- Free change of your booked date if requested by email at least 48 hours before departure.
- In all other cases we will try to find the best solution case by case. In principle our standard cancellation policy and additionally condition 1 and 2 are leading. No rights can be claimed from tailor made solutions we offered to others.
Cancellations and changes have to be requested by email and the date/time stamp of the email in our inbox is leading.
