2 Days Tour - “The Chiang Rai Loop”
A great shorter tour to explore some Highlights of Nothern Thailand.
The first landmark is Wat Thaton, a magnificent temple with a crystal pagoda just a few kilometers away from the border to Myanmar. Once in Chiang Rai there is time to explore this laid back town, visit the night market or just relax in the hotel. You will take another route back to Chiang Mai. Don't miss a visit at Wat Rong Khun (White Temple), which is today recognized as one of the main attractions all over Thailand.
The roads are mostly easy to ride but there are some technically demanding stretches. You must be able to handle a motorcycle and do not expect to learn how to ride while on this tour. We aim to ride on average of 190 – 300 km’s per day which leaves ample time for relaxing, dining and sightseeing.
The tour starts and ends in Chiang Mai, the largest city in Northern Thailand, some 700 km north of Bangkok. Chiang Mai has great hotels and facilities and is easy to access by road or air - especially from Bangkok International air services also connect Chiang Mai with other regions of Southeast Asia.
