Motorcycle tour Thailand
A motorcycle ride in the middle of winter
We were on a motorcycle tour of southern Thailand from Bangkok to Songkhla and back, we traveled three thousand kilometers and visited two of Thailand’s largest islands. We saw and fed enough monkeys and elephants for half a lifetime. Visited too many temples and Buddha statues, ate enough shrimp and lobster to for a lifetime. We swam and sunbathed on endlessly long sandy beaches. We went to a Ping-pong show and a lady boy bar. We tried to smoke marijuana, since it has recently been legal in Thailand. All this in the middle of winter, while in Europe there are minuses, we were sweating in summer jackets on motorbikes.

15. -day HUA HIN-BANGKOK
after breakfast will check out from the hotel. we will drive to Bangkok airport with mini van
Some explanations and instructions:
Thai tradition and culture is very diverse so we will visit some temples on the way to learn more about Thai history, culture, tradition and architecture.
The program does not describe all destinations and landmarks we will visit. So let yourself be surprised. As bikers and adventurous tourists, we will stop and visit places that are interesting to us and that we will meet along the way.
Once we park outside the hotel, motorcycles are no longer allowed. Motorcycles are intended exclusively for moto tour purposes and not for solo use and driving anywhere. Transport to the city or restaurant by taxi comes 50/60 cents per person when we split the cost, and that’s a lot cheaper than if something happens.
Any changes in the program or if the participant does not travel according to the program, it is considered that the passenger has waived the travel contract and has to pay all other expenses and damages himself.
There is no need for us to stick to the program 100%. with agreement we can leave something out and add something else.
As motorcyclists, you have to be aware that lunch and dinner can’t be every day at a certain time because we’re on the road. So we will eat when we get the chance.
We’ll be stopping and taking breaks every 80-100 kilometers or every hour.
It is desirable that you wear sneakers because we have to walk to some attractions. Otherwise, a little walk will be nice after a long time of sitting on the motorcycle.
Light polenta clothing is desirable because at the moment in Thailand the temperatures are +30 and more. You don’t need a lot of personal things because you are limited to the size of the motorcycle suitcase. I suggest you take the backpacks.
I also suggest that you get some kind of accident insurance during the trip.
I would also warn that everyone is responsible for themselves so the way of driving must be adjusted. In Thailand, the bigger is always a rule. Considering that we will be driving more than 3000 km, caution is not superfluous.
