We did it clockwise so we could get comfortable on our 150cc scooter. It was a 4 day road trip. Mostly straight roads from Chiang Mai to Mae Sariang and not so scenic. Ride gets more interesting from Mae Sariang to Mae Hon Song to...More

Absolutely amazing trip! Northern Thailand is stunning. The people are amazing. The views are spectacular. We went to Mae Sariang first - an attempt to gradually prepare us for the bendiest roads between Soppong and Pai. A good recommendation. It was a fantastic trip from...More

This is definitely one of the most attractive parts of Thailand, with many natural, cultural and archaeological attractions. The Pai-Phang Ma Pha-Mae Hong Son section in particular offers many interesting sightseeings.
