Thailand & Laos To Chinese Border Motorcycle Tour

Incredible twin country Motorcycle Tour experiencing the very best in Thailand & Laos.  Surveyed twice in 2018 and published December 2019.

Keeping with our tradition of off the beaten track locations we have put together this fantastic two country motorcycle that really is an absolute pleasure to ride.  

To to give you the absolute best motorcycle tour we only run this trip once per year and only at the optimum time to ride when the weather and local conditions are perfect allowing you to enjoy these very individual countries and cultures in ride in perfect conditions.

  • Plain Of Jars - Laos

We have prepared this tour as 'luxury' however when riding an adventure motorcycle tour such as this in 3rd world Laos and in very remote regions accommodation can limited and basic at times, that's the nature of this type of trip but spread through the tour we have also included incredible 4 & 5 Star accommodation where we can.

Starting from Chiang Mai, Thailands motorcycle capital we head North towards the Laos border keeping off the main highways taking the better motorcycle roads through lush national park forests and quintessential Thai villages.

Crossing the border to Laos we ride to the very unique (some say "strange") town of Boten taken over by the chinese government as a so called " Economic zone".  This town was well known in recent years as the China border "Ghost Town" but today a thriving Chinese community with and a spectacular hotel we will need Chinese money here.

Again, we could take the faster routes through Laos but this country is one of the most photogenic countries in SE Asia so we're taking the back roads passing stunning lime stone outcrops, crossing the mighty Mekong river,  the edge of Laos highest peak and riding through one of the most successful national parks in Laos with a thriving population of wild Tiger close the the Vietnam border also crossing Laos largest Lake on scorpian tail boats.  

Other highlights include a day off in Laos 'must see'  Luang Prabang, a night of oppulence directly on the Mekong river and a chance to party and let our hair down in Vientian, Laos capital.

An incredible trip and as always with Motorbike Thailand balanced throughout to be more than just a motorcycle tour including time off the bikes for R&R, incredible roads where the faster riders can open up plus easy more relaxed days to take in the scenery for stunning bragging rights' photos. 

This tour is all Inclusive of all tour related expenses.  The only items you need to cover is flights, travel insurance, gratuities personal expenses and any transport when not with the group and any expenses you may incurr on the days/half days off. 

As always with our tours they are for experienced  riders only.  This tour especially is not suitable for riders with little confidence or not happy with twists,  bends and multiple road surfaces including gravel roads.

I joined the Thailand - Laos Survey tour February 2018 and was extremely impressed.  I have travelled to Thailand and Laos previously but not on a motorcycle. You definalty need a bike in Laos to see the places we visited of which some were really eye opening.  The Thai and Laos support team were brilliant and any issues they sorted out without fuss. Border crossings were painless and quick.  Saw a big difference between the two countries. Thanks for the experience.

Route Guide

Due to many roads in Laos not yet on google maps this is a very rough outline of the trip. We can't get Google to show the exact routes as it always wants to divert us onto different roads. Hence we do not use GPS for directions,  everything is done by trial and error when we survey new routes. Google doesn't know the little gems we know including crossing the Nam Ngun lake which doesn't sho on the map. But it gives a good indication of the outline route.
