Description


Introduction

Chiang rai is the northernmost province of Thailand. It is bordered by Myanmar to the north, Laos to the east, Phayo to the south and Chiang Mai to the west. The north of the province is part of Golden Triangle where the borders of Thailand, Laos and Burma converge. The Mekong River forms the boundary with Laos, the Mae Sai and Ruak River with Burma. Wat Rong Khun or also-called by foreigners The White Temple is a contemporary art exhibit in the style of a Buddhist temple in Chiang Rai Province. Main dishes in the area are dishes of curried chicken or shrimp and particularly kaeng khanun (spicy jackfruit curry), kaeng yuak (banana stalk curry), sai ua (grilled pork sausage), and Yunnanese and Burmese rice noodles. Khao soi is a noodle dish with chicken stock and chicken that is also popular.


Notice

The roads in Chiang Rai are mostly easy to ride. Some parts might be a bit harder than others but all are practicables for real bikers. You must be capable to handle a motorbike over 500cc and do not except to learn how to ride it during the road trip. We plan to ride around 200 and 300 km’s per day which leaves plenty of time for relaxing, eating and sightseeing.
