Amphoe Khao Chamao was designated as a national park in 1975. This area of outstanding beauty. The 84 square kilometer park was named after two prestigious mountains. Riding the magnificent roads of the park with its gorgeous mountain routes snaking their way to stunning viewpoints is a trip not to be missed. The lust jungle forests of the park are teeming with wildlife including monkeys, deer, and a variety of tropical birds. We often see large monitor lizards making there was across the roads as we ride by. The mountains here are rocky with limestone cliffs that provide the perfect structure for cascading waterfalls, some come with their very own cave. Don’t forget your swimwear, a dip in these cool pools is just the ticket, feel the showering water will leave you refreshed and rejuvenated.

Lunch is provided in one of the park’s charming restaurants where authentic aromatic Thai specialties can be sampled in a relaxed forest atmosphere and of course, breathtaking views.

Time to leave the park and make our way to beach accommodation close to Chanthaburi town. We’ll get there in order to settle in and view the vibrant golden sunsets famous for the province. A sumptuous feast is served right on the beach with fresh locally caught varieties of ocean fish. The perfect end to the perfect day.

DAY 2 - Chanthaburi
DAY 2 - Chanthaburi

Fully rested, day 2 starts at a leisurely past after a beach breakfast. A short ride takes us to Chanthaburi town. This historical fishing town is a delight with interesting shops selling Thai craft and gems mined in the local cliffs. Choose one of the many quaint coffee shops to rest in for a while. We will visit the shrine or Somdej Phra Chao Taksin Maharat, this beloved King Taksin holds the highest respect of the Chanthaburi people who have a saying. If you haven’t paid your respect to the king, you haven’t been to Chanthaburi.

The southern-eastern coastal roads are calling us and it’s time to really test our grand tourers. Numerous bays and headlands come into view around every corner and bend as we hug the coastline. The sights and smells of small fishing communities will fill our eyes and nose while we lean our bikes swiftly through twisting roads. Heading inland, our final destination is the stunning countryside of Silver Lake.

This landmark area of 480 square resembles the landscape and mountains of southern Thailand’s most famous tourist locations such as Krabi and Phuket. One of Silver Lakes mountains is held in high regard by Thais, the northern side of the mountain has a sheer rocky face, carved into it is a huge golden Buddhist symbol. This attraction is known as Big Buddha Mountain. Thousands of Thais and Westerners alike come to this monument to pay merit to the Lord Buddha. From a riding point of view, the mountain has a fantastic ring road all the way around it perfect for motorbikes. Various spots have viewing points where the entire area can be seen with its lush rolling hills, vineyards, and glistening silvery lakes. This area is under constant development with many restaurants, coffee shops, and buildings giving a feel of Tuscan Italy with pine trees lining the entrance. The smell of olive trees and pine will fill your nose as you enjoy your coffee. Once rested we hit dirty trails exploring the Silver Lake area in search of elusive primates. These little-known shy but inquisitive monkeys live in the Jungle surroundings, we’ll have to leave the beaten track to find them which is a lot of fun and a test for those not used to riding off-road.

Can I just come to your tour base and get a tour?
There is a great amount of preparation that goes into our tours so on the spot booking is very difficult. It would be far better to book your tour dates online or by phone. This gives us the necessary information to ensure your tour is the best it can possibly be for your specific needs.
What is the maximum amount of riders per tour?
We can provide tours for a maximum of 5 riders per tour.
I’m on my own, do I have to find another person to book a tour?
Yes, we can tailor-make tours for anyone as required. Just contact us to discuss the details. However single riders can join any of our tours with existing riders, in which case no extra charges are incurred. We encourage group tours for a number of reasons. Most people find the group interaction a much better experience and it helps us to keep our prices keen.
What are your methods of payment?
We support all forms of payment both online and offline. Payments can be made directly to our bank account or via third-party providers such as Paypal.
How are the road rules in Thailand?
We drive on the left in Thailand and the rules of the road tend to be in line with England and Australia for the most part. Of course, there are differences but our guides will make you fully aware of the main points to follow. A driving license is rather easy to obtain in Thailand which means there are many inexperienced drivers in Thailand. It is always advisable to keep a watch out for other road users. There are also many areas where animals frequently walk on the road. We strongly advise staying in close contact with our guides for the safest experience.
Can I make my own day’s itinerary if I want?
Yes, no problem. We will help you with any alternative arrangements you wish to make and made sure you know our destination details at the end of the day. Our full tour itinerary will be made available so the choice is yours to follow or discover a new route.
How much will it cost me if I damage the bike?
Any bike failures need to be reported to our guides as soon as they occur. This way we can prevent any further damages and make sure your bike is in the best condition. You are covered by our third-party insurance whilst riding our bikes, however, any claims do incur a 25,000 baht excess and in the case of the bike being written off by the insurer, there is a 100,000 baht excess charge.
Will I know how far we ride every day?
Yes, all of our tours are fully described in our tours section, it includes the total amount of km we ride on any specific day. Some days are more demanding than others with a maximum of around 250km. We’ve design our longer tours so that those long journeys are spread out throughout the tour. Most of the time we take a relaxing ride with plenty of stops and excursions.
What are the driving licence requirements in Thailand?
When driving or riding in Thailand it is imperative to obtain an (IPD) International Driving Permit which is an official translation of your international driver’s licence. This addition to your International Drivers Licence is required by Thai Law before driving in the country. To get this addition you must contact your Drivers registration office in your home country. Some countries allow the permit to be mailed to your home address while others require that you register in person.

Permits can be obtained through third party online services but we DO NOT advise this as it may not be legal if you get into an accident while riding. By adding this document legally to your existing international licence you ensure that you are diving legally in Thailand.

When riding make sure that you have your IPD with your International driver’s licence and passport at all times.
Where do I put my personal things when on the road?
For our short tours, our base in Pattaya has full changing rooms with lockers for your possessions. On longer tours, there is a surprising amount of storage on each bike compression of pannier bags and top boxes. Whatever your needs are we will find a solution for you.
Can I come to Thailand without travel insurance?
Currently, it is still possible to come to Thailand without travel insurance, however this is becoming stricter. We strongly advise our guests to purchase insurance that covers motorbike tours to at least 650cc engines. Travel insurance is still relatively cheap so it really is worth it.
What are the visa requirements in Thailand?
For most countries, Thailand has a visa on arrival policy. The visa covers a minimum of 30 days. For visitors wanting to stay longer periods of time in the country visas can be obtained from the Thai Embassy in your home country.
Seasonal Changed and Road Conditions?
October to February - For near-perfect riding conditions, we recommend dates between October and February. During this time the weather in Thailand is mostly dry with gorgeous temperatures. Our Northern Thailand tours are particularly suited to these dates.
March to June - March to June are the hottest months in Thailand, It remains mostly dry during these months so road conditions are still very good within most cases all areas accessible to riders. Temperatures can be as high as 40 degrees so make sure you bring suncream.
July to October - July to October are the best months to visit waterfalls. Our Northern and Eastern tours have some of the world’s best falls included in the tour. Riding conditions do get muddy and wet but if you’re looking for a wild adventure and have some good riding skills this could be the best time to take a tour.
What do I need to bring on the tour? What is supplied?
Along with the bikes and guides we kit you out with the very best internationally imported motorbike clothing from the helmet to the boots, you’re completely covered right down to the socks. Lockers are provided for your personal belongings at our base and the bikes all have pannier and top box storage. Just bring your documents, sunnies, shorts, and T-shirts.
How much is motorcycle gear in Thailand?
If you are looking for top quality then buying from your own country is a better option in most cases. A cheaper option is Chinese brands that can be bought in the North of Thailand at good prices. The quality is decent for the price.
