  1. A motorbike is the best way by far to see Thailand. Avoid riding at night though.
  2. It does not compare with Pattaya, no city in Vietnam does. Pre covid Nha Trang and Da Nang were booming and very busy. For some reason the government stopped three month visas and made it hard to stay there. Although they have a 90 visa available now, but you then must leave the country.
  3. I am not long back from a 40 day motorbike tour in Thailand, only one hotel would not accept a drivers licence.
  4. He did not break the law, the hotels have the duty to report customers.
  5. It would depend on waht immigration office. Arriving back in Pattaya and a bike tour i have never reported i am back and never had an issue.
  6. Renew late and get 6 years license
  7. The Vespa was running ok, when we we left, it became apparent it was not though. Top marks to Mike for cracking on and sorting and joining me with Al.
  8. Day 40. Bkk to Pattaya. My last day of this trip was a very hot ride from Bangkok to Pattaya, a 184km ride. The route I rode took three and a half hours and was far better the usual route, with traffic flowing which kept me relatively cool. My total millage 7,035 km Al made it home safely as did Mike on his Vespa. Really enjoyed riding in the south of Thailand and will return for sure.
  9. Day 39. Kanchanaburi to Bangkok. Al and I parted ways this morning as I was stopping in Bangkok for a night before returning to Pattaya. Leaving Kanchanaburi I stopped to photograph the Steam Trains, here. https://maps.app.goo.gl/VhaH1RD6WrKLEUUs6 And then the River Khwae Bridge, here. https://maps.app.goo.gl/fVauCSQFbk136hr99 My final stop before the hot ride into Bangkok was Yutthahatthi Don Chedi Memorial (Phanom Thuan), Kanchanaburi. The Elephant War Memorial, here. https://maps.app.goo.gl/yjNZKzewTSM8SQpC6 https://www.relive.cc/view/vevW3ez91yv
  10. Day 38. Kanchanaburi Exploring. Today Al and I went exploring around Kanchanaburi, I had already been to these places but it was still nice to ride again. First stop was Chong Kai War Cemetery, here. https://maps.app.goo.gl/Fxb3wbL1GtmY7XjN9 Then to a non tourist site of a Rain Tree, here. https://maps.app.goo.gl/gVrr92DLPjddXkc4A Not far away was the tourist Giant Rain Tree, here. https://maps.app.goo.gl/uabiMGbma4eVD68t6 From here we rode to Railway Bridge, Tham Krasae, here. https://maps.app.goo.gl/qsM5rHKWQHUpQ5gD9 We rode to Ban Hat Ngio suspension bridge, here. https://maps.app.goo.gl/BJkVecrL9Hq7QgGr6 Which is behind the famous Hellfire Pass, Thai-Burma Death Railway, here. Then it was an hour ride back into town. https://maps.app.goo.gl/jzTmXy1XR8oH5j1w9 https://www.relive.cc/view/vdORje3KKrO
  11. Day 37. Phetchaburi to Kanchanaburi. Today Al and I rode to Kanchanaburi. When we got into the countryside here. https://maps.app.goo.gl/JwDPtnmYCatUndwu8 The riding was great even on the CT125, with lots of curves and small hills to ride. We only had a quick stop for photos, here. https://maps.app.goo.gl/V7v3Ee1v3P1Hj5kv9 We then checked in at The Smiley Frog on the River Kwai, here. https://maps.app.goo.gl/SUZEtbidPPo5Pqaa8 https://www.relive.cc/view/vQvyZNAGm4O
