Recommendations and notes.
We've rated this as 'Intermediate - Advanced'. Roads are great throughout with a few technical roads thrown in for good measure. A couple of long days in the saddle but the trip has been balanced out nicely so fatigue should not be a real issue. Accommodation is good but vary at times especially in Laos and the more remote regions where accommodation is limited, but we have never had any complaints. Single rooms are also included into this package for all riders.
Trip includes pretty much includes everything into the package except evening meals/drinks, snacks and your flight to Thailand. For more information about our Road tours we have made a detailed FAQ explaining the basics of each tour style we operate.
