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 […]

Trat - North of Chantaburi - Makham - Trat

The route Hwy 3, 3249, 3409, 3249, 3322, 3249, Unknown, 3408, 4010, 317, 3277, Hwy 3 Total distance 257 km I headed out along hwy 3 for about eighty km until just past Chantaburi and I think that viewing this tree was probably the highlight of the journey, main highways are so terminally boring Past Chantaburi and I take a right onto the 3249, I couldnt understand the chronic amount of traffic using this road, lorries, trucks, mini buses and cars were everywhere along here. I imagine that this road is now linked to the 317 somewhere and its a […]

Trat - Hat Lek The Cambodian Border - Trat

The route 318, 3269, 3292 Total distance 214 km I decided to ride to the Cambodian border at Hat Lek today, I rode there on the Honda Wave back in 2004 and decided to go again Its not a particularly pleasant ride to start with, its dusty with lots of road widening taking place then after a while it turns into a much better more scenic ride Its a good surface with some bends and rollercoasters to keep you awake The border crossing at Hat Lek looking into Cambodia I have no reason to cross over and have a look […]

I took the 348 out of town heading towards Ta Phraya and about 10 km out I took a left onto the 3198, this was an okay road but nothing special, I take a right onto the 3485 […]
