We had the opportunity to...

We had the opportunity to explore some of Thailand's most beautiful countrysides on our recent motorcycle trip. There were so many wonderful routes that we found ourselves re-routing just because it was such a pleasure exploring new roads and scenery, with views as stunning at they are starkly different from one another. The busier highways made navigating for novice riders difficult but we were in group with Honda CRF and BMW 310 GS, so we had a nice safe peace. There is an incredible range in both landscapes and riding challenges available for all skill levels!

We couldn't believe the beauty of Thailand's roads. We took a few minutes to explore before starting our journey, and it even gave us some ideas for future trips!

We would love to get it for our next trip in the next high season.

Surprisingly, there are so many wonderful roads driving to Ayutthaya and Kanchanaburi, and the sights and venues are breathtaking. As you can see, this guide is definitely not for a beginning rider. The road on the first day is rather busy, but things get better after you get through it.

I just finished the trip and had a wonderful time. The guides were friendly, knowledgeable and very helpful, the food was great, the accommodation was clean and spacious. We had a fully loaded bike, Suzuki and BMW GS, which made life much easier on the mountain roads. It was relatively easy to drive for us, but if you don't do regular exercise, it could be more of a challenge.


Our guides, Tum and Lee...

Our guides, Tum and Lee, was great. He was very patient as I had to make some last minute changes to the itinerary and he was able to accommodate all my requests. His English is excellent and he is a very friendly fellow.

I wanted something different when visiting Thailand so my friends suggested renting motorbikes instead of the usual taxi or bus rides around - what an awesome idea!! With their help navigating me through parts unknown on several days' motorcycle tour routes we visited beautiful destinations like Ayutthayah, Kanchanaburii, Sai Yok National Park!

The Thai countryside is a joy to explore on motorbike tours. We toured the country during my recent visit and saw some of Thailand's most beautiful destinations, including Pattaya, Ayutthya City, Kanchanaburi Province (famous for its Bridge over River Kwai), Sai Yok National Park in Prasat District of Surin province and Khao Yai or Upper Forest.

I've done a lot of motorbike tours but this one is without doubt the most scenic I have ever had. Halfway through our day ride from Pattaya to Ayutthaya we got lost in some deep, green rice fields and found ourselves taking shelter under palm trees while waiting for an evening rainstorm to pass by. It was so peaceful that once it did roll on into town all three of us were feeling refreshed and revived enough to do another two rides before nightfall!

I had the opportunity to...

I had the opportunity to do motorbikes tours in Thailand and this was one of my favorite experiences. We did day rides from Pattaya all the way up to Ayutthaya, Kanchanaburi, Sai Yok and Khao Yai! The countryside is gorgeous with its rice fields everywhere you look. It's especially beautiful during dusk when everything turns a golden-orange color before heading into night time - it makes for an incredible ride through haystacks that are lit by fireflies while catching glimpses of water buffalo along dirt roads which cut across lush green hillsides lined with palm trees swaying back and forth as they dot their paths down below like giant arrows pointing out what lies ahead just around each bend...
