Experience an unforgettable riding experience through the eastern coast of Thailand. This route takes you along fabulous roads until the Gem of the Gulf of Thailand, Kho-Chang. Located in Trat province, it is the second largest island in Thailand, trailing only after Phuket.
The first stop will bring you to the lively Pattaya where we will be spending the night in a cozy and quite hotel in Jomcien*.
After a well-deserved night and a breakfast at the hotel, we will be leaving Jomcien heading to Khao Chamao and visiting one of the most impressive National Parks in central Thailand, the Khao Wong National Park well known for its waterfalls: It is a large waterfall spreading many levels along a 5 km stretch. The water is clear, making it easy to spot the fishes in the pool. There is a trail leading to the waterfall which passes through scenic forest. Night spent in the area of Khao Chamao**.
The next day, we head to Trat at the Kho Chang pier where we will be embarking on a regular boat to Kho Chang*** for an hour ferry ride.
We than spend the rest of the day riding around Kho Chan island and discovering wonderful beaches, landscapes and elephant trekking (optional).
The next stop will bring you to The Kitchakoot Mountain National Park****, Wild Life Conservation Area at Kungkraben. In addition to the various attractions, Chanthaburi’s landscape offers interesting biking opportunity enjoying beauty of mountains, beaches and coves while exploring life of Chanthaburi and fulfilling personal enjoyment of riding.
On the fifth day, we will be riding back to Bangkok reaching our destination late in the afternoon around 6pm.

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.

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.
