Ironically, I’ve been in the hospital recovering from my first and perhaps last moped accident, of which I’ve lost the use of my left arm.

Ran into a tree late and weary near my apartment 9 days back.

Well, hwy 4 is great and safe at certain parts, but sometimes the most dangerous places are where you least expect it. I’m no one to suggest ‘safety’ considering what I just encountered (despite all the fury of thai roads, I turned out to be my greatest danger)

there’s plenty places to stay–if u haven’t been to thailand before, bring a lonely planet for starters–they’re gold mines for planned accomm..

Had I not lost my left arm, I’d almost want to join you… Never take the basic things for granted, especially motors, roads and limbs. good luck in preparing to be prepared… make sure you get some reliable life and travel insurance. I’ll update my blog in due time. Keep me updated.

hello,

just been enjoying your blog. I’m thinking about renting a bike/moped when I visit.
I’m from the UK and am obviously not used to the busy Thai roads and don’t have much experience riding bikes anyway.
Can you recommend a couple of nice easy routes with less traffic for me to explore. This highway 4 looks nice. Where would you begin and where would you stay for example.

Thanks,

Andrew

Very nice pictures. Thailand really does have a lot to offer.

There is an old saying, “All roads lead to Rome”. Of course the Roman empire is no more than a magical memory.

Roads today lead you everywhere, you could drive from Thailand all the way to Europe, China, Russia or India.

Most long roads travelled today are via the Air and for anyone who has visited Thailand in their hearts they know all roads lead back to Thailand.

Thai wifes living in countrys like the UK, long to return to the warmth on the air and the smiles on the people.

For anyone who has only ever visited Pattaya or Bangkok, you are missing out on so much of what Thailand has to offer.

Thailand is roughly the same size as France, with cities throughout.

Renting a car is inexpensive, and you will really enjoy a drive around Thailand, The roads are much better than you would imagine.

Make sure to keep a stash of 100 Baht bills with you, for when you get stopped for speeding, guilty or not
