As of 2020 I have completed six motorcycle tours in Thailand and whilst by no means an expert I’ve sampled a good portion of the the best motorcycle roads.
Initially I was riding roads I saw mentioned on ride reports or ones suggested by riders I have met there in pubs but last couple or tours I am just exploring my own way and finding there are many roads not talked about that are great riding. In the north you honestly will enjoy almost any route except the major highways.
I marked some of the better roads on a map just for my own trip planning purposes but with friends planning rides there I started sharing this map for general reference.
The southern roads marked out are as suggested to me by a local chap when I was last riding here recently and I will be riding them next trip hopefully.
Update: My ride report from 2019 is also a guide to ‘how to ride Thailand’ with lots of info and tips put together from my tours there. You can read that here.
