When you think of Thailand, what comes to your mind? Sun, beach, nice food … Thailand is one of the world’s dream destination for tourists and travelers in need of exoticism. Going for a road trip there is a once-in-a-lifetime adventure!

How will you get around?

A real road trip involves being on the road, going from one place to another and spend a lot of time in transports. Using public transports such as the bus, train or metro will give you a glimpse of local habits as you will mix with crowd. What best to immerse yourself in a country than living the locals’ life? Bangkok has the largest network of bus in the country. It is also the only city to have a tramway and metro system.

But once you’re out of the city, why not transform your road trip into a motorbike one?

Motorbike tours in Thailand are a great way to discover the country and be free of any transports obligations. Riding on a bike will allow you to discover unknown paths in an unique way, stop whenever you want and arouse the locals’ curiosity. Make your friends jealous!

Be careful to what you pack

A road trip doesn’t seem that fun if you have to carry some big luggage around. Your backpack will be your best friend, as long as it’s well organized! We suggest to keep it as small as possible, especially if you are now heading for a motorcycle tour. Saddlebag carriers are the best way to take your stuff around, so make sure you have some on your motorcycle. Also, be careful to have a bag at your size, and easily washable (for example in a cotton or flax material).

Where to go?

The ideal road trip would include various activity possibilities. With its changing landscapes, party-wild beaches, great millennial heritage and buzzing capital, Thailand is the perfect place to have it all.

Start at Bangkok, Thailand’s capital. No doubt you will be quickly attracted by the food stalls around Victory Monument or in Chinatown. Lose yourself into the narrow streets and choose from which vendor you will enjoy your first Thai food. The most famous dish is Pad Thai: noodles with fried shrimps, peanuts, lime and a sweet sauce. Be careful, it might be spicy!

After enjoying the city’s offerings during a couple of days, head off up north to Sukkhotai for some cultural treatment. The ancient Kingdom of Siam is 6 hours away from Bangkok. Here you are, surrounded by 700-years-old ruined temples and statues. Take a long walk in the national park to admire the well-known country’s lotus lakes, and immerge yourself in the past glory of this architectural magnificence.

Continue your way up towards the northern part of the country, and settle down at Paeng Daeng Nai. Enjoy seeing the small villages waking up quietly, with men and women from local tribes starting off their daily life. Ordinary activities involve having a chat on the rice terraces, working with the corn, or get on the bicycle to go to the next village. Landscapes here are beautiful with green sceneries of banana plants, mango trees and bamboos.

Finally, go enjoy one of Thailand’s many paradise islands on the southeast border of the country. Koh Phangan is home to the famous Full Moon Party, a 30 000 people gathering around several dance floors and bars on the beach. Partying there is a once-in-a-lifetime experience not to miss! During the day, you will be able to relax on the island’s white sand beaches surrounded by coconut trees.

Don’t forget to take some pictures, and… have a nice trip!
