I’ve been to Thailand many times, but unfortunately more in the south near the beaches. A motorcycle tour in the north therefore offered some new insights into the country. I can only warmly recommend this motorcycle tour!
Endless Curves at the Golden Triangle Motorcycle Tour in Northern Thailand
Riding in the Land of Smiles – Chiang Mai Motorbike Tour
Our Northern Thailand motorcycle tour is the ultimate adventure for riders looking to discover the tropical beauty and rich culture of the mountainous north of Thailand. Experience the thrill of riding on unique mountain roads that are unparalleled in Asia and explore sleepy towns, remote villages and adventurous routes. Be mesmerized by the jungle-covered hills and mountains, misty tea and coffee plantations, and the mighty Mekong River, the lifeline of Southeast Asia. Northern Thailand offers a pure blend of stunning tropical landscapes, roaring waterfalls and winding rivers. This tour is a dream come true for any rider!
The famous “Road 1148” in Nan, with its hundreds of rapidly following curves, is one of the best motorcycle roads in Thailand and is just as much a part of our program as the famous “Mae Hong Son Loop”. Discover the culture and temple metropolis of Chiang Mai, located in the mountainous triangle of Thailand, Burma and Laos, where our journey starts and ends. These curvy experiences through dreamy landscapes will be unforgettable! The Golden Triangle, where Thailand, Myanmar and Laos meet, is steeped in myths and legends due to its turbulent past, when vast poppy fields were primarily used to produce opium. However, in recent years, Thailand has managed to replace the poppy seeds with coffee beans and tea plants, and has developed the Golden Triangle as a tourist highlight.
On our Thailand motorbike tour through the north of Thailand, you will also get a unique insight into Southeast Asian culture. Taste local specialties, enjoy great hotels and resorts, experience boat trips, explore the Sukhothai UNESCO World Heritage Site and get up close to mountain peoples (including the Long Neck Tribe) and their customs. Be inspired by the magnificent temples and a mystical religion and immerse yourself in the moving history of the country. Experience the Golden Triangle on an exciting Thailand motorcycle tour and discover all the highlights of the north!
Our Northern Thailand Motorbike Tour starts at Chiang Mai International Airport, which has many connections to Bangkok, Asian countries and Europe. After a night in a wonderfully located resort in the city’s countryside, we jump on our bikes and head towards the Golden Triangle. An exploration ride takes us through the unique landscape of the Golden Triangle, where we soon come across the Mekong – the border river between Thailand and Laos, which we follow a good way after Phu Chi Fah. Here in the early morning, you will have a fantastic view of a cloud valley filled with fog. Around Nan, we enjoy one of the most beautiful streets in Southeast Asia, the “Road 1148”. In Nan, we take a rest day, which we can either spend relaxing or exploring the salt mines of Bo Klua. Then it’s on to Sukhothai, an important era in Thai history that has greatly influenced Thai culture and Buddhist art. The former glory of Sukhothai still shines through the many impressive ruins that we can visit in the Sukhothai Historic Park, a Unesco World Heritage Site.
Fantastic mountain roads on the Mae Hong Son Loop lead us through lush green rice fields to the Burmese border. We find ourselves in the middle of the jungle and enjoy the tropical surroundings before continuing to Doi Inthanon, Thailand´s highest mountain standing 2565 meters above sea level. The road leads us across wild mountain ranges. A journey to the ethnic groups of Thailand and the diverse culture of the country, makes this tour truly unforgettable! Finally, we will end the tour with a visit to the charming “Hippie town” of Pai, known for its laid-back atmosphere and vibrant nightlife before reaching Chiang Mai again. Join us for a North Thailand motorcycle tour of your dreams, where you’ll experience the perfect blend of adventure and culture, breathtaking landscapes and unique mountain roads, all while immersing yourself in the fascinating culture of the Land of Smiles.
5 stars for this tour. The organization was very good. The previous conversation helped me a lot to decide on this tour. The roads were very easy to ride on and, despite my age, easy for me to do.

Great Thailand Tour!
It was a lot of fun to ride through Thailand with the group. The motorcycles ran great and we didn’t need our mechanic at all. But he made sure that we were in a good mood! Our guide knew his way around and everything went perfectly on the tour. I recommend the tour.
Everything went perfectly during the tour in Thailand. As a participant you could relax completely and enjoy the tour!
I would book it again!
Since the guide knew his way around Thailand perfectly, everything went great. Neither of us had any problems with our bikes and the organization went very well. Keep it up Tibetmoto!
Golden Triangle Motorcycle Tour in Northern Thailand – Itinerary
Questions & Answers
All our itineraries give you a good overview what you will experience and discover when booking with tibetmoto. The itineraries are nevertheless best understood if they are seen as a suggestion rather than as a 100% planned and a thousand times done way of traveling. We like to keep every tour, every adventure, every trip unique and special. We are proud to say that we have never done a trip two times exactly the same way. Our team does not like to offer mainstream tourism tours, and we believe that people enjoy their time best when they have freedom and possibilities to choose from. Freedom and flexibility are very good ingredients to cook an exceptional discovery or adventure, to meet unusual people and visit off-the-beaten-track places.
