3 weeks around Thailand!

Hey Guys,

Long time lurker, first time poster here. I am planning on spending 3 weeks in Thailand in June/July next year. Just wanting a few opinions on places to go! Also do you think 3 weeks would be too long?

Thanks

Three weeks may turn out to feel too short..... Thailand is quite a big country with quite a variety of places to visit. If that is all the time you have for a motorcycle tour there, you'll want to make the most of it.

Your post is quite general. What interests you? What do you plan on riding?

The Mae Hong Son Loop in Northern Thailand is regarded as one of the best rides in the country. The mountains up there make for some other interesting rides as well.

A few days in Bangkok to get over jet lag. Fly down to Krabi, boat over to Pee Pee & Phuket. You can rent small bikes in Krabi & Phuket & see all the sights. Fly up to Chiang Mai, rent a CBR 250 or 500, head north up to the Burma Border through Mae Salong, some great roads that hug the Thai Burma Border. Give yourself at least a week up north. Check out www.gt-rider.com for all the road info. How ever long you stay, you will wish you had stayed longer.

Yep, North Thailand is the place to be on a motorcycle, especially during northern hemisphere winter, when itīs just about perfect weather in those parts.....

Great shot, remember the where abouts of this road ?? When the rest of the great motorcycle roads are covered in snow, this is the place to be.

That photo is from December 2005... me and my three riding buddies, that can be seen in the pic, are returning from a trip to Cambodia and Laos. Sorry I canīt remember 100% any more, but I think this is from somewhere between Nan and Phu Hin Rong Kla national park. Very close to the Lao border, too. I think there was even a short stretch of gravel on the way.

But though I donīt remember the place exactly, the whole area is packed with roads just like this!

........shit I should not have posted that pic... just realised I havenīt been there in many years, I wanna get back there asap!!

Thought I have seen it before, rode out of Nan about 5 years ago & still had some sections that weren't paved. Doesn't matter, most of the roads in the north are all pretty good. If you show up in Chiang Mai in the next 5 months, we hang out at Bier Stube near Thapae Gate.
