- The Mae Hong Son Loop: The Mae Hong Son Loop is a 600 km circuit in the northwest of Thailand that takes you through some of the country’s most beautiful mountain scenery. The route starts and ends in Chiang Mai and takes you through Mae Sariang, Mae Hong Son, and Pai. The loop is famous for its twisting roads, stunning waterfalls, and hot springs.
- The Chiang Rai to Chiang Mai Route: This route takes you from the northernmost city of Chiang Rai to the cultural hub of Chiang Mai. Along the way, you can stop at the stunning Wat Rong Khun temple, visit the Golden Triangle where Thailand meets Laos and Myanmar, and explore the beautiful Doi Inthanon National Park.
- The best way to explore the Andaman Coast’s beautiful islands is by embarking on a road trip from Phuket to Satun and back, covering a distance of 1100 km (690 miles). It is recommended to avoid the troubled east coast due to political unrest in Thailand’s far south. The route takes you through the picturesque Andaman Coast, where you can stop at various idyllic islands for overnight sojourns.
