Jan 11, 2012 - Partis pour 5 jours au nord ouest de la Thailande en scooter

Allo tout le monde Comme nous sommes partis en scooter vers Mae Hong Son, nous avions peu d'espace dans notre unique sac a dos donc nous n'avons pas apporte notre ordinateur. On pourra surement vous envoyer des nouvelles en court de route mais vous aurez plus de nouvelles quand nous serons de retour a Chiang Mai. Nous avons deja fait plus de 250 km dans la campagne et c'est super le fun car on peu arreter quand on veut. La frontiere avec la Birmanie est exceptionnelle et les ethnies qui y vivent egalement...on vous en reparle ! Dan a pu...

Aug 29, 2010 - Travelling North Thailand

Well after a 9 hour flight, I landed safely in Bangkok ! Not having any hidden tigers in my bag (http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-asia-pacific-11104948), the local authorities let me through without any problems and after a 5 hour wait, I boarded my flight back north to Chiang Mai. Having spent 3.5 weeks travelling 24/7 with Agnes, I thought it might be a bit of a shock travelling on my own again, so I decided it would probably best to return to somewhere I knew. And so within 30 minutes of landing, I was back in the familiar surrounds of...

Feb 6, 2010 - Mae Sariang.

6 February. Time to leave Mae Sot. If I don’t want to backtrack and go the same way as I came, the only option is a 220 kilometres trip by a dusty and noisy song-taew. When I planned this northern loop, I feared most for just this part, the trip from Mae Sot to Mae Sariang. I left Mae Sot at 8.30 o’clock in the morning. The first 150 – 160 kilometres went rather well, the road was rather flat and we passed some villages and I had some glimpses of a huge Karen refuge camp. The last 60 or 70 kilometres after when we left the Tak Province for...

Nov 18, 2008 - Mae Sot to Mae Sariang

So after leaving Mae Sot my plan was to spend a day travelling and go 10 hours North the the town of Mae Hong Son. I didn't make it that far and got only six hours north, to a town called Mae Sariang. For one, I left Mae Sot later than planned, and wasn't on the road until noon (I had to wait for my laundry to be finished.) Also, I enjoyed the scenery so much from Mae Sot to Mae Saring that I didn't want to go further until it was light out. The road was very well paved and took us through a jungle that was full of teak, Asian redwood, and...

May 10, 2007 - Mae Sariang via Chiang Mai

We arrived in Chiang Mai that night and Pam, took us to her parked red Toyota truck. I mention that her truck is red because that is quite rare, most trucks here are silver, black or white. In Mae Seriang, Pam's truck is only one of two red ones. So it is fairly unique! There are many trucks on the road all over Thailand, Toyotas, Nissans and even Fords and Chevies. I was surprised at the latter two as when I was last in Asia, American vehicles were not available let alone affordable. Of course, middle class Thais, like many westerners, are...
