2 - 10 Travellers
Enjoy an intermediate to strenuous bicycle ride on the scenic island of Tuba, which is completely off-the-beaten tracks. Locals compare Tuba to what Langkawi was 20 years ago, so get ready to go back in time. No worries about traffic, we will see a few motorbikes and if lucky, a car... But pay attention to chicken and cows crossing the trails.
Most locals live on fishing activities and you will be surprised to see so many jetties around the island. We will also see some rubber trees and local plantations.
Expect to see places few tourists normally see!
