Unforgettable motor bike ride. Six times now and still keen to do again soon. The road surface is now very good and improving every year. Bends, coffee shops and buffalo will keep you alert.

Mae Hong Son's nature is not more beautiful than the nature close to Chiang Mai. The van connection is very bad, the driver of my Avia van drove so fast in the serpentines, that I had three (!) people vomiting next to me. Also, you...More

This journey is an amazing snapshot of Northern Thailand. You can do it in a few days or take many days. You can stay on the main roads or take little, or bigger, detours. You can see magnificent mountain views, explore caves, meet the various...More
