Northern Thailand In Style

Thailand: It is luxury all the way on this incredible food centric, tour of Northern Thailand. Enjoy great riding, great hotels and the exquisite Thai cuisine

This tour provides an outstanding opportunity to thoroughly enjoy the uniqueness of Northern Thailand. The riding is mainly on rural roads with a variety of surfaces that wind through areas of spectacular beauty – some of the best riding anywhere in the world.

We will explore further into this region taking mainly quiet roads, which are not well known to those from out of the area. Along the way we will visit some of the lesser known treasures like mysterious Nan, which for centuries remained autonomous and cut off from the outside world. We will also visit more famous or infamous places like the Golden Triangle, where Laos, Myanmar and Thailand meet and where for decades the opium poppy provided a living to many people until it was cracked down on in 1996 after the death of the legendary War Lord Khun Sa.

We visit the Long Neck Women of Kayan, famous for wearing brass rings around their necks, and then ride up to Doi Inthanon, the highest mountain in Thailand.

A focus of this tour will be the local Thai cuisine and we hope to give you a better understanding of the styles, flavors and techniques of this delicious and fascinating cuisine.
In every region that we visit we will sample and learn about the different regional flavors and favorites.

The roads that we will be riding are mostly easy to ride but there are some steep and technically demanding stretches. You must be able to handle a motorcycle and do not expect to learn how to ride while on this tour.

The ride starts in Chiang Mai, the largest city in Northern Thailand, some 700 km north of Bangkok. Chiang Mai has great hotels and facilities. Included in this luxurious tour are all flights and transfers from your arrival in Bangkok.
