A biking enthusiast writes about biking circuits and places to visit in Chiang Mai, North Thailand.
Amongst a few unique destinations, North Thailand is a favourite – having logged more than 10,000 motorcycle kms, I still yearn to go back and ride in those hills. There are two distinct travel plans one can make – the first is the culturally rich town of Chiang Mai and the second is the Mae Hongson loop, counted among the top motorcycle riding routes of the world. North Thailand is for the discerning traveler looking for something off the beaten track. The capital city, Chiang Mai thus becomes a natural choice to begin the exploration.
