Itinerary

Rivers, valleys, farms and small towns, and we pass through three National Parks on the route. There will of course be a lunch stop and some cool photo opportunities.

We intend to arrive at our hotel around 5pm, so plenty of time to wash up before dinner.

Overnight in Mae Sot

A fairly leisurely breakfast, then we set off along the Burmese border to cover around 240km up to Mae Sariang near the Slaawan National Park.

A Lot of the route follows the course of the Moei river, and delivers some fantastic vows across the border into Burma.

Overnight in Mae Sariang.

Day 3 - Mae Sariang to Pai
Day 3 - Mae Sariang to Pai

Lots to see and lots of roads to cover today, but it's a fantastic route. The 108 could have almost been specifically made for touring bikes, and features twists, sweeping curves, loops and a few hilly climbs as we head up to Mae Hong Son covering around 160km.

Which is home to traditional hill tribes such as the Shan and Hmong. It is a gateway to the region's hilly geography and is overlooked by the beautiful Wat Phra That Doi Kongmu, which is a Burmese-style monastery.

Day 4 - Pai to Chiang Dao
Day 4 - Pai to Chiang Dao

It's around 265km from Pai to Chaing Dao, but the tranquility of Pai stays with us on this breathtakingly beautiful ride to the Oasis of Chiang Dao.

The 1095 is well known as a great road for bikers with its loops and curves and great views as it skirts the Srilanna National Park.

Chiang Dao itself is a delight and boasts waterfalls, hot springs with accommodation that almost seems to hang from the mountainside
Lots of local snack options, artists workshops, and a good sized cave, you will love walking this gentle town in the evening, after dinner at our overnight hotel.

Day 5 - Chaing Dao to Chiang Khong
Day 5 - Chaing Dao to Chiang Khong

This morning we say goodbye to Chaing Dao and head off on a 260km ride to Chiang Khong on the banks of the Mekong River in the Chiang Rai district.

This takes us through the infamous Golden Triangle where Thailand, Lao and Myanmar all meet, with views of China in the distance

Taking the 107 we skirt north across Chiang Rai on the 1089 and 1098 down through the river basin and head towards the Lao border and into the town to our hotel for dinner and a restful overnight stay.
The area is also home to the The Doi Tung Development Project (DTDP), a flagship projects established in 1988 by the Princess Mother in Chiang Rai Following her first visit to Doi Tung in 1987, the Princess Mother surveyed the baron hills and announced “I will reforest Doi Tung” to allow the local people and the wonders of nature to exist together.

One of the towns claims to fame is as the place where “Pla Buk”, giant catfish, is cultivated the largest freshwater fish in the world.

Day 6 - Chiang Khong to Nan
Day 6 - Chiang Khong to Nan

Breakfast done and we have a beautiful southward ride today covering around 255km down to Nan.

A fantastic biking road with plenty to enjoy and challenge your riding skills, with some tight loops and bends.

As we get closer to Nan, we start to touch on the Doi Phu Nang National Park and its wonderful forests that give us some great stops for photos.

Then into Nan and its three bridges connecting the right bank to the left bank of the river Nan and a myriad of temples. We will stay overnight here and you can have fun exploring the city after our hotel dinner.

Day 7 - Nan to Phayao
Day 7 -  Nan to Phayao

After breakfast it's more of the wonderful Doi Phu Nang National Park to start the morning ride as we head inland to Phayao. Passing close to the 17th century Wat Tha Fah Tai and its wood Buddha image standing over two meters high..

Lovely river crossings and the route takes us along and over the river Yom, through forested hills and along the wonderful winding roads.

We arrived in Phayao late afternoon and a little time to explore before dinner at the hotel.

Plenty of markets and boutique shops to wander around and you can also ride the tram to see the city or stroll slowly and breath in the fresh air by the Lake

Day 8 - Phayao to Chiang Mai
Day 8 - Phayao to Chiang Mai

After our final breakfast together we set off back to Chiang Mai. It's around 210km on some great roads that run along the southernmost mountains of Doi Luang National Park and then we turn south east to head down to ChiangMai.

Lunch with a view on the way and would hope to arrive by early to mid afternoon in the city.

Then sadly it's time to say goodbye and take away the memories of a fantastic experience and adventure.

It was incredible to see...

It was incredible to see the beautiful views riding up and down mountainsides, twisting through jungle paths lit by bright green leaves along with many other thrills throughout each day. We had a blast riding the Versys 650 in Thailand, and we are very grateful for what you have done not only as an organizer but also as a friend who made sure that everything went smoothly from beginning until end including picking us up at 7 am every morning! Overall, our trip has been simply amazing because all your hard work put into planning out this route - there is no better way of seeing such an exotic country than from behind handlebars on two wheels while exploring it's northern loop where twists

This was a fantastic trip and I am really happy we chose to do it with......... He is an excellent guide and had a great balance between talking too much or too little. The sites were gorgeous and the hotels were excellent. I would recommend this trip to anyone! It was just what my husband wanted - a ride where we could talk and take photos and stop when we wanted to without being rushed. I would recommend this trip to anyone who wants a relaxed ride through some beautiful northern Thailand scenery

I'm really happy I decided to take part in this trip. This trip has been one of the best trips I've ever done. It's awesome to ride through the different terrains, see the countryside of Thailand and meet people. The group is great and it's a very friendly atmosphere. Our guides are really patient with everyone and they try their best to make sure everyone is having a good time. Thanks for everything!

A guided tour is the only way to go if you want to explore Northern Thailand. The guides at 7 Day Big Northern Adventure do an amazing job of showing us all the highlights of the region while not wasting a single minute. They also have a great eye for photo ops. If traveling by bike isn't your thing, they can also arrange car and bus options. Either way, you can't go wrong with this company!

My name is Jason and I just came back from a trip to Thailand. I had the privilege of taking a guided motorcycle tour in Thailand with my wife and fellow motorcycle enthusiasts. We were blown away by our trip. The guides were amazing, the accommodations were beyond perfect, the food was great, and the sights were fantastic. I highly recommend Bike Asia to anyone looking for a motorcycle adventure in Asia. I am already planning my next adventure with you guys. Thanks again for making our first trip to Asia

As you will discover the...

As you will discover the culture of the Thai people and their Buddhist religion, you will also enjoy a wide variety of gastronomy from Thai curries to western style food. The Golden Triangle is about as classic a north Thailand ride as there is. The combination of the Ping River, the Mekong and the beautiful mountains criss-crossing the region makes for some fantastic riding. And with interesting towns like Chiang Rai, Chiang Mai and Chiang Khong, this trip has it all!

Northern Thailand is one of my favorite places in the world. It's remote, off the beaten path and locals are extremely friendly. I am very happy with your tour and the guides in Chiang Mai. I've always been a solo traveller so it's a nice change to have someone there who knows what they're talking about and is helpful.

Edward

This trip has it all!

This trip has it all! This adventure will take you to the sites of Northern Thailand and you will experience all kinds of terrains such as rivers, mountains with valleys. You will also visit the famous ancient town of Chiang Mai and have a chance to explore the city walls.
