It’s a great way to see the real Country

Motorcycle Touring in Northern Thailand

Calling all BMW enthusiasts, how would you like to travel Thailand by Motorcycle? According to a friend of mine, BMW is the only way to go. That’s because my friend is BMW crazy and has not one but two branded bikes and a BMW 1.35i motor car. Best to leave it at that.

Though I have owned a BMW myself, it matters not what bike you choose to ride, travelling by bike in Thailand is a great way to see the real beauty of this country. However, you need to take all the necessary precautions as not everyone here has their eye on the road.

A great way to travel Thailand by motorcycle and to meet other like-minded bikers is to join up with a motorcycle tour. I have partnered with a tour company offering you a few motorcycle exploration options. Below you’ll find several guided and self-guided tours in which to choose. And with that, I wish you all a safe and pleasant journey.
