The Mae Sariang Loop

Mae Sariang sits beside the Yuam river near the border of Burma Northwest Thailand and due to it's accessibility (not nice in a bus) Mae Sariang attracts the more adventurous tourist.


This Motorcycle tour offers great riding for people looking to experience cultural and interesting spots off the bikes.

  • 2 Nights stay in Mae Sariang in the best rooms of a small modern hotel on the Yuam River.
  • Day trip to the Border with Burma with an exciting river cruise on scorpian tail boat on the largest undammed river in Asia dividing Burma with Thailand.
  • Visit to Thailand's Highest mountain 2565m above sea level.
  • Option to extend the duration by one night to include WW11 War museum in Khun Yuam and/or Pai City

This is our favourite short motorcycle tour as it offers off the beaten track locations plus Mae Sariang in our opinion is one of the happiest places in Northern Thailand, relaxed and often quite lively at night.  Only a small town with traditional values and most buildings still built from Teak.

Mae Sam Laep on the burma border where you will take your boat trip is one of the most unique villages in Thailand a mixture of Bhuddism and Muslim.  An ex refugee camp now a river port with locals originating from the Kachin state in Burma many with Bangladeshi origins.  Truly a great short motorbike tour full of surprises and great photo opportunities.

Tour Highlights

Salween River Cruise

Cruise on your private scorpian tail boat down the mighty Salween river the biggest undammed river in Asia dividing Thailand from Myanmar.

You will visit a small hill tribe village on the border operated by the Red Cross and see the life of the people living in a remote region cut off from mainstream civilisation.


We've chosen a small but delightful teak hotel for your 2 night stay on the Yuam river in upgraded rooms with private balcony within walking distance of the town, bars and restaurants.

Relax on your private balcony on the river watching the sunset over the mountains of Burma with an ice cold beer.
