Itinerary

Day 1 - Pattaya to Ayutthaya
Day 1 - Pattaya to Ayutthaya

Following a short tour induction at company HQ Route 66 Pattaya the tour party departs the province of Chonburi and commences a nice easy ride up to Ayutthaya, Ayutthaya is a rural province in south-central Thailand. Life is centered in and around the ancient capital of Siam (Thailand). Famous artifacts include a much revered carving of Buddha's head in a tree trunk.

Riding approx 210 km, we will first take in the Eastern Seaboard and skirt Bangkok, before heading into the countryside and up to our final destination.

Time to explore when we arrive and this will be your first overnight stop.

Day 2 - Ayutthaya to kanchanaburi
Day 2 - Ayutthaya to kanchanaburi

After breakfast a nice sweeping ride of around 155km across to Kanchanaburi.

A fascinating area with tragic yet interesting history. An area of great natural beauty, a must for all military buffs as we detail the history of the Thailand–Burma Railway via an interactive museum and information centre, and a thought provoking visit to the allied cemetery and walk across the bridge of the river Kwai itself.

Also plenty for nature lovers as the area is rich in Pineapple plantations, sugar cane farms and of course traditional rice paddies.

If you're a lover of temples then a short distance away is the Wat Tham Suea (Tiger Cave Temple) hill top temple with stunning views.

Overnight stay at kanchanaburi

Day 3 - Kanchanaburi to Sai Yok
Day 3 - Kanchanaburi to Sai Yok

Following a leisurely breakfast it's a enjoyable gentle ride of around 120km up to Sai Yok National Park.

We also cut through Erawan National Park and arrive just before lunch at Sai Yok where we will stay overnight in a floating hotel in Saiyok District directly on The River Kwai.

The hotel stop also encpompasses an exciting raft ride on the river Kwai and if you're up for it a dip in the river.

Lots of time in the afternoon to explore the area, or chill by the river. Overnight there is indeed something soothing about falling asleep to the lapping sounds of water.

Day 4 - Sai Yok to Khao Yai
Day 4 - Sai Yok to Khao Yai

Post breakfast back into the saddle for a scenic ride that takes in some great climbs and deep valleys as we run West to East across central Thailand.

We cross several provinces with an eclectic mix of topography, sights and sounds. With a light lunch break we will arrive late afternoon for our overnight stop and the final farewell dinner.

Day 5 - Khao Yai to Route 66
Day 5 - Khao Yai to Route 66

It’s farewell to Khao Yai after a great farewell evening as we head back down to eastern Thailand and finish back at company HQ Route 66 Pattaya.

FAQs

Our motorcycles are fully covered by third party insurance, however we strongly recommend that you have your own health insurance in place before you arrive in Thailand. Make sure it covers you for Motorbike riding activities.
Do I need an International driving license?
Yes, you must have obtained your own country’s International driving license before your tour begins.

What happens if my bike breaks down on tour?
Our following support/recovery truck carries a spare bike so you will be swiftly back on the road.

They serve breakfast at the hotel and this normally comprises several options. Lunch is a light roadside lunch, for dinner options we always endeavor to find a restaurant that offers both Thai and International cuisine.

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! Kanchanaburi and Khao Yai National Park are spectacular. We belive also the 10 Days The Cambodian Adventure Tour must be incredible. 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.

If you want to see some of the world's most stunning scenery and also have a real experience to remember, then this tour is for you! Kanchanaburi has some of the most magnificent landscapes in Southeast Asia

Oliver

The routes were easy to follow with stops at small family run guest houses along the way where we ate fresh fruits picked from their farm next door! Incredible. Just what I wished from a real motorbike tour: to see the true countryside.

Jerry

I just finished the trip...

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.

Samuel

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!

Roger

Motorbike tours are a great way to explore Thailand's gorgeous countryside. One of the best I've done was from Pattaya to Ayutthaya, Kanchanaburi, Sai Yok and Khao Yai with day trips in between for all our favorite attractions along the way!

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.

You simply cannot come to Thailand and not do a motorbike tour of the countryside. I've done many, but this was one of my favorites ever! You'll be riding your way through some gorgeous landscapes, following easy-to-read routes mapped out for you by expert guides with years of experience. It doesn't get any better than that when it comes to seeing these beautiful parts in all their glory - so go on ahead and book what's sure to become an unforgettable adventure today!

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 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...

I had a wonderful time on this trip. The guides were very friendly and accommodating, and the group was great to hang out with. I enjoyed seeing the countryside, learning about the culture, visiting interesting places, trying delicious food, and spending time with good company. I would recommend this trip to anyone interested in seeing Thailand on a motorcycle.

I've done a lot of motorbikes tours, and this is one of the most beautiful rides I've ever had. We did day rides from Bangkok to Ayutthaya, Kanchanaburi, Sai Yok, and Khao Yai. The countryside is gorgeous and the bike routes are easy to follow.
