Have you ever considered doing a road trip in Thailand? From its energetic cities to preserved nature and paradise-like spots, Thailand has something for everyone and every taste! Our friends at Vintage Rides organize tours around Asia for those willing to explore the roads on an old, beautiful motorbike.

Thailand will stimulate you by its cultural richness, and let you relax at the same time. Enjoy some local street food and let yourself be surprised by spontaneous meeting with the locals.

By spending time on the road you will soon realize how important two-wheels are in Thailand. The Thai-people have a deeply enrooted culture of driving bikes. As scooters are easy to go through the cities’ dense traffic – once you go out and visit the countryside, you will come across motorcycles. The more it looks retro and has a history behind it, the better it is! Long distance motorcycle trips in Thailand are usual – the cafés you will encounter are a testimony of this bike culture.

So why not take part of the local way of life and transform your road trip into a motorcycle tour ?


Motor cycle tour in Thailand is a unique way to explore the country


Vintage Rides has been organizing Royal Enfield motorbike trips in Asia for more than 10 years. Recently seeing coming the first Royal Enfield bikes in Thailand, a great country of two-wheels lovers, the agency has launched this new destination and created two new tours there.

Starting from Chiang Mai, both trips will take you up North in the mountains, until reaching the Burmese border. Discover a region full of ancient culture printed with historical marks, with a traditional local life and peaceful atmosphere. Then ride back down along the magnificent views of neighboring Laos.

On the Edge of the Siam Kingdom” is a 12 days trip at the heart of the real and authentic Thailand, with exciting stop-offs along the way. A motorcycle trip for those who dream of magnificent open roads!

“The Golden Triangle Mountains” is a 7 days trip in which the riding intensity is higher: around 8 or 9 hours a day. Discover the misty mountains and teak forests while challenging yourself on the road!

You will be sure to enjoy a whole different experience and a complete change of scenery.


Riding in the cities is usually the quickest way to get around.


But first… Bangkok!

Bangkok airport is the largest one of the country, so big chances are your international flight will bring you there. Before heading to Chiang Mai to start your biking trip, you can take a few days to discover Thailand’s capital and its surroundings.

If you have only little time to spend there, here are the best things to do:
– Visit the Grand Palace and be mesmerized by its beautiful architecture
– Go on a Thonburi crusade with flat-bottom boats to experience how Thai people used to live
– Walk in Chinatown Market to have some of the best food in town – and bring some back home!
– Explore the famous street of Soi Rambuttri for an authentic local experience.

Before heading North to enjoy one of ‘Vintage Rides’ motorbike tours in Thailand, you will need to walk around in Bangkok. Traffic in the city is intense! If you want to start the motorcycling experience, you can rent a bike at a cheap price: around 1200 BHT / day.

Otherwise, river taxis are a local specialty to visit Bangkok’s main attractions.
You can also go by underground metro or skytrain which serves the city’s main areas.

Don’t forget your passport, your helmet and your camera… Enjoy your trip!


Wow! We’d love to take this beauty for a little scenic ride!
