Challenging Dual Tour for US Riders in January 2020
“Everything far surpassed my expectations.” This comment from a group of farmers and cowboys from Idaho, USA. They booked a 13 day dual tour which covers the Northern part of Thailand. We customized this tour by adding some off-road sections as per their request. On-road sections brought them to tourist attractions and they enjoyed a winding curvy road. The off-road section gave them a chance to explore a non-tourist side of Thailand with some riding conditions that challenged even the most experienced riders.
January is the best time to come to Thailand. The weather is perfect – always sunny at around 20-25 ํC without any sign of rain. That’s good news due to some off-road sections that would be impassable in the rainy season. In the meantime, Thai farmers just finished their first harvest and started to grow a second crop. We rode through agriculture areas and saw people plant rice by hand, a mountain created by corn chaff, a water buffalo walking around a rice field before laying down in the mud, and hill tribe people celebrating their traditional New year party.
Our cowboys appreciated the itinerary we created for them. It was a great mix of wonderful riding experience and unique cultural experiences.
“Everyday a new adventure!”
