Tropical Cyclist tours:

Oman

‘SESAME, OPEN YOURSELF'

'Sesame open yourself', with that magical password Ali Baba managed to open the treasure room of the forty robbers in the well-known Arabian fairy tale. Great wealth then awaited him, but not without a struggle.
Oman has the slogan 'Beauty has an Address', according to us it could also have been 'Sesame open yourself': what a fairy-tale country!
The capital Muscat immediately surprises you, with its balanced mix of Arabian authenticity and modern prosperity. There is greenery everywhere, on the coast of a desert land. The low and light-colored buildings give Muscat the nickname 'White City'.

Philippines

ISLAND HOPPING, IN A TROPICAL CYCLING PARADISE

'Welcome home', that's how it felt!

The roots of Tropical Cyclist lie in the Philippines. In the beginning of 2000 it was our only destination, in the following ten years hundreds of guests have traveled here with us. When we came back last September, we constantly thought: this is and remains the most tropical cycling paradise!
In 2020 we will therefore again focus on this group of islands, with a new route.

Taiwan

GREAT CYCLING IN THE TROPICS!

'Made in Taiwan', who doesn't know it as a synonym for cheap production from the Far East? In the meanwhile, this has been overtaken by 'Designed in Taiwan' - the country is no.3 worldwide in patent registrations - and what turns out to be beautifully designed? Cycling routes! For the 'island tour' (900 km) alone, the government has spent more than 30 million euros to make cyclists happy.
