In 2017, head to Thailand with Vintage Rides!
Chiang Mai is at 310m altitude, the city has around 250,000 inhabitants and the old part of the center occupies a surface of 2.2 km2. No snow was there on Christmas day, only sun and a 25° temperature – perfect for a 25th of December. In Chiang Mai, there’s also 10 Royal Enfields, which have crossed almost 8,000 kms each. 36 riders, including 6 British and 3 Australians, blazed the Golden Triangle’s trails at the border of 3 countries: Thailand, Laos and Burma. Since the beginning of the season, Francois and Guillaume have tasted 52 pad thais – and surely as many Chang beers. For the new year, we have summed up the 10 reasons why you should go for a motorcycle trip to Thailand.
1- Ride through Asia’s most beautiful roads Go up, go down, go up again and take the exhilarating curves and turns of the Mae Hong Son loop! Your Royal Enfield takes you to the secret roads of North Thailand. 2- Discover Chiang Mai, the Rose of the North With its night markets, its temples, the old city and its Loy Krathong light festival, we bet you will fall in love with Chiang Mai. 3- Have a glimpse of Burma Take roads up to beautiful ridges on the border the Burmese border - watch the mist rising over the little authentic mountain villages. 4- Admire the mythical Mekong Halfway through your motorcycle trip, you reach the Golden Triangle. At the heart of a special atmosphere, you go along this great Asian river which forms a natural border with Laos. 5- Stay in unusual accommodation Comfortable hotels, local guesthouses, charming bed & breakfasts, we chose our favorite findings for your journey. Expect nice encounters and convivial evenings! 6- Visit the fascinating Lampang temple Located 20 kms away from the city, Wat Phra That Lampang Luang is definitely one of the most beautiful temples in whole Thailand. The legend says its great chedi would shelter a piece of Buddha’s hair. 7- Meet with the elephants Stop by the Elephant Conservation Center nearby Chiang Mai to feed and observe the elephants taking their bath. 8- Fall for the Thai cuisine Pad thais, green curries, papaya salads, grilled meat brochettes, exotic fruits...
