We started in Chiang Mai, then went to Pai, Mae Hong Son, Khun Yuam, Mae Chaem and finally back to Chiang Mai. The scenery is insanely beautiful, especially Khun Yuan to Mae Chaem. Not a lot of hotel options here, so prepare yourself with Booking.com....More

You don't have to go on a tour if you are an experienced rider with the confidence to sort your own travel arrangements. The road signs are excellent, rented a Honda 500, bought a roadmap and used the phone (pillion with phone) to confirm our...More

Just under 800km, and more than 1800 turns through some of the most beautiful countryside in Thailand! Rode a 250cc on/off road bike which was perfect for visiting the many off-road attractions along the route, most of which is extremely well paved. Smaller bikes have...More

Some say that the loop can be done in 2 days: sure, but you will miss sooo many wonderful sights, smells, and tastes! I suggest planning for 5-7 days trip or more. And do yourself a favor, do NOT ride big bikes like 1200 GS...More

If you are around Chiang Mai or Mae Hong Son, do not miss this road trip. You can rent small scooters too and it's easily doable in it. We rented big bikes of 500cc and those big bike added more adventure to our trip.

Lots of great curves and stunning scenery, plenty of coffee shops etc en route and plenty of budget accommodation at each town but if you want a long trip try Australia or Africa. There are no long trips in Thailand
