How to Ride a Motorbike in Thailand…Without Any Major Accidents

    Thanks for this great post! I am about to embark on a 6 month sabbatical and just got my motorcycle license. (I got it to learn some riding skills of course, but also because I read that if you rent a bike without one, your insurance won’t cover it.) I am definitely a bit nervous about riding in Thailand but your tips help.

  2. I was in Chiang Mai last year and walked everywhere – jealous of everyone on motorbikes. I’ve just purchased a Honda motorcycle here in the states and I can’t wait to ride a scooter next time I’m in Thailand. I took a bus to Pai and I would much rather have been on a bike! Thanks for the tips!

    Thanks for the tips. We will be in Chiang Mai next month. Any suggestions for where to hire a motorbike from a reputable place?

      Honestly, it’s been so long since I rented a motorbike in Chiang Mai I have no idea. You literally can get them everywhere or ask where you’re staying what they recommend. Mr. Mechanic and Mango Bikes Rent have both been around for a long time and have a big selection.
