Richard Millington, Director of Motorrad Tours, explains why you shouldn't just think of Bangkok and beaches when you're considering Thailand:
I have just returned from my third time riding through Thailand. If you were asked to list the world’s top ten motorcycle touring destinations, I doubt that Thailand would make your list, but if it didn't, you would be missing out on something truly amazing.
Think of Thailand and you probably think of sunny islands, great beaches and dodgy clubs. You would be right - Thailand has all this and more, but nearly everyone lands in Bangkok and heads south to the sunshine and the infamous tourist destinations. They are all going the wrong way.
