Unless you want to waste an entire day trying to get Ban Rak Thai on the yellow songteaws don't bother. I have been sitting since 10am in front of the Van Rak Thai songteaw . First they said midday. There's no station just concrete bench on the road. Midday comes nothing 1pm nothing. 2 pm at last then they made 10 Stops around Mae Hong son before we even left the town. So it's now 3pm. Just get out of town oh no let's stop at the 7/1. I got and screamed into my bag. Absolutely no concept of time. I only have 2 days there and now I've just wasted one full day stuffing around. I'm furious and don't recommend taking these. Anything I'll hitchhike rather next time.

I rode this route with Big Bike Tours based in Chiang Mai in 2017 and again February this year. The roads are almost perfect but with a little resurfacing works going on after Mae Sariang. Amazing sections on the 108 & 1095 to Pai This is one of the top ten riding roads in the world with bend (curve) after bend after bend, over 1800 in fact. I loved it so much I just had to return and do it again. The riadscare great, the scenery is to die for and loads of places to visit along the route. Waterfalls, temples, museums, etc. Not for a total novice rider anyone who just rides straight roads all the time (most Americans....sorry) Push the bike hard and power through the corners and you'll have the chicken strips melted away in no time! All in all a fantastic ride and I'll do it again one day! Stop dreaming and start riding the roads you always wanted 🙂

We hired a guide and a driver for our 5 day tour. So glad we did. We saw amazing villages, parks, geysers, waterfalls, caves, temples and more. The roads are windy and hilly. Signs are in Thai. I’m glad we didn’t try it on our own. The four of us loved the loop tour.

An excellent introduction to serious unsupported cycle touring in the mountains. The 10days 9 nites cycle route includes 8 days of back-to-back hard rides of between 70-130km of riding per day with between 1400-2200m of vertical climbing on some of the most beautiful mountain roads in the part of North Thailand. Starting and ending in Chiangmai, the 660km loop has a good range of great value for money accomodation (in Mae Cheam, Wat Kiew Lo, Mae Sariang, Khun Yuam, Mae Hong Song, Soppong and Pai) and excellent asian Thai food along the entire way. Highly recommended.
