Motorbike Tour – BANGKOK to PHUKET (The Southern Coast Dream)

Adaman Coast is considered as the most charming beachs in Thailand, its legendary beauty is known throughout Southeast Asia as a land of soft white sand surrounded by warm turquoise water, filled with marine life and dotted with deserted islands. Krabi is the ideal place for a motorbike adventure, with plenty of cool bars and restaurants.

On the first day we will have an early departure from Bangkok to Samut Sakhon province enjoying the lifely floating market of Damnoen Saduak. We will than head further to Cham-am* for our first over-night stay in a comfortable hotel.

On the next day, a coastal ride along the andaman sea is planned until the final destination at Chumphon** which will take us to Kho Samui. We will have two relaxed nights in Kho Samui**** enjoying the food and the night life before heading south to Krabi****** for a two days relaxed stay.

From there, the journey will take us further south to Kho Lanta*******, a slightly unknown Island where we will be staying over-night.

The next day, we will be heading to Khao Lak******** enjoying a nice lunch on way in the Phuket area. Arrival planned at Khao Lak late afternoon to enjoy this lifely city of Phang-nga. A long stretch of about 340 km is planned the next day from Khao Lak to Chumphon*********.

The next day, we will be heading to Hua Hin*********** for two well deserved relaxing days. Arrival in Bangkok on the 12th day at the end of the afternoon.

Riding Tips

Traffic in South East Asia is left handed. This might cause some headache for our American and European customers but not to worry, you will adapt to it fast. Another thing is the traffic, which is dense and sometimes full of action. This is one more reason why a fresh mind and properly adjusted mirrors are needed over here. Stop in pairs at the traffic lights and ensure you do not overpass the riders ahead of you at the green light which can result in silly accidents.

Roads in general are in good condition but you still need to always pay full attention while on the road. The scenic routes in the more rural parts of Thailand will definitely have pot holes, so do look out for them and be prepared that there might be a cow standing in the middle of the road just around the next bend.

The sun is HOT hence it is always a must to apply sun block and use it generously. Use long sleeves (jackets) and breathable materials always when you can. People who are coming to Asia for the first time might get frustrated if the ATM cash machine at the hotel reception is not working as fast as back home. This and many other little peeves here and there should not destroy your mood. You are on holiday, in ASIA.

TOUR GRADING

One of the most important features of any Asia Riding Adventure tour is the right route. We take time to choose and test-ride our routes. For experienced motorcyclists, the smaller roads with less traffic and lots of turns are close to paradise, but too demanding for beginners or intermediates to handle. Riding conditions, traffic flow, local driving habits, and road surface quality all vary considerably from country to country and region to region. All of these factors go into our ROUTE GRADING determination.

If you have never been on a tour outside your home country, or if you have little or no experience riding extremely curvy mountain roads, we recommend you stay with the MODERATE or INTERMEDIATE tours. If in doubt, send us an e-mail or call!

Moderate: The whole route is on asphalt. The roads will be curvy at times, but mostly easy to handle. Even on these tours you must be able to ride your motorcycle – do NOT expect to learn how to ride a motorcycle while on tour! A minimum of 5,000 miles of motorcycle experience is required to take part in the tour, and you should ride motorcycles on a regular basis at home.

Intermediate: These routes run mostly on asphalt. There can be sections of very twisty roads, sometimes even with tight switchbacks. Traffic could be intense, and local driving habits may seem unpredictable, or even chaotic, to you – so you must be an experienced rider. A minimum of 7,500 miles of motorcycle experience is required to take part in the tour, and you have to ride motorcycles on a regular basis at home.

Tough: In general, these routes run on asphalt roads. A good portion of the route runs on very narrow, sometimes single lane roads. The roads are very curvy with quite a few tight switchbacks. There may be detours because of road construction, which will require riding on gravel and unpaved sections for some distance. Some riding days are quite long and demanding. Traffic may be very intense and unusual at times, with local driving habits that differ significantly from what you are used to. You must be a VERY experienced rider to take part in the tour. A minimum of 10,000 miles of motorcycle experience is required to participate, and you must ride motorcycles on a regular basis at home.
