With beautiful mountain scenery unique to the region and sparse traffic, Thailand’s Nan province offers some great circular motorcycle routes, often opening the eyes of even seasoned local riders to the magnificence of their country. It is a rural province in northern Thailand bordering Laos, known for its numerous national parks. The vast Doi Phu Kha National Park in the northeast Nan contains waterfalls, limestone mountains and rare plants. Nearby, the heavily forested Khun Nan National Park is home to wild boars, black bears, reptiles and birds. The charming provincial capital, Nan, sits on the banks of the Nan River. Our favourite highlights on a 5 day trip include overnight stays in Pua, the natural salt mine town of Bo Kluea, and of course the unmissable Route 1148 as your pathway in or out of the area. Not forgetting the Sirikit Dam and the ferry crossing to Pak Nai Village.
