    Nice report & info.
    It looks like you've done a few trips across the border before - you were well organized.
    Do you have a favourite Thai - Malaysian border crossing?

    it's my first time to cross border, but with the help of GT Rider forum members, I was able to plan it and execute it the way I like it.

    **Do you have a favorite Thai - Malaysian border crossing? - I cross the Sadao border cause I was told that it was the nearest from Penang.

    *****Planning to the SE borders by next year, Planning and reading some articles how to do it.
    @DavidFL , Question...Thailand, Laos, Vietnam and Cambodia can be done by MC w/o any trouble? Thanks

    Awesome ride Marcus.. May I suggest an alternate route.
    After passing Grik, you can directly go up north towards Baling and Padang Terap. There are 3 lakes within that northern region with breathtaking views, Lake Beris, Pedu & Muda. There is also a new border crossing, CIQ Kota Putera (6.470528, 100.708347) with less traffic and faster processing time.
