The route Unknown, 3067, 4012, 3395, 3008, 317, 3434, 3259, 2004, Hwy 33 Total distance 319 km Todays trip was to explore some new roads to the west of Aranyaprathet especially the one that goes through the reservoir near to Tha Takiap on the 3259. I set out on an unnumbered road that runs parallel with hwy 33 but just south of it A ceremony was just finishing here and the Monks were walking off as I arrived A pleasant road this one, at an intersection about twelve km from Aranyaprathet I take the right as this should take me […]

Trat Onto Aranyaprathet

The route 318, 3157, 3299, 317, 3193, 3405, 3395, 4058, 3259, 3479, 3383, 4029, 3067 Total distance 281 km After seven fun days riding my favourite roads, finding and exploring some new ones it was time to move out. Apart from some roads to the north of Chantaburi that will be explored next trip there is only one way to head out from Trat and that is northwards as the thought of riding west to Rayong, Pattaya or Bangkok is a rather horrifying thought I take the 318 for about five km then its a left onto the 3157 and […]

Aranyaprathet To Pang Sida National Park

The route 348, 3198, 3485, 3462, 3485, 3198, 348 Total distance 194 km Todays trip was to ride to the Pang Sida National Park and through it on the 3462 that looks a brilliant winding road on my map. Last year at the park entrance I was told the road was washed out a few km in so I rode to Khon Buri to try riding from the opposite direction but they wouldnt let me through the gate saying that it was dangerous, so an embarrassing failure for me I took the 348 out of town towards Ta Phraya for […]
