The Pai Loop Motorcycle Tour

Some of the famous 'Mae Hong Son Loop' the motorcycle tour route you must experience at least once in your life, an incredible ribbon of asphalt corkscrewing through the mountains and lush forests through the Shan Hills Northwest Thailand to the party town of Pai and beyond.  

You'll ride back roads into Pai town along the spine of one of the largest mountain ranges in the region with Thailand's highest peak rising in the distance. 

A 350 kilometer trip of 1400 twists and hairpins this motorcycle tour never fails to impress.  Enjoy perfectly laid twisty roads through stunning mountain scenery and lush tropical forests passing multiple ethnic hilltribe villages on route.

We spend one night experiencing the unique style of Pai - Either settling into a bar in walking street people watching the evening out - Party with the locals or backpackers or Indulge in the delectable array of street food available. For those who like to party? -  this town wakes up around 9pm and carries on until the wee hours.

  • Visit WW11 War memorial bridge
  • Pass Multiple Hill Tribe Villages
  • Outstanding Road Riding
  • Party Atmosphere
The following morning (usually not too early) we make our way back on the Chiang Mai route 1095 road with lunch in a small local restaurant before arriving back into the city around 3pm ending a cracking little tour.

This trip is perfect for people eager to experience Pai but for those looking for a full Mae Hong Son Loop Experience we highly recommend our dedicated Mae Hong Son Loop Tour
