    Gooday fellow bikers, i'm new to the forum and i had a dream to ride from Singapore to Bangkok.
    It will be a KTM Duke390 and probably will be travelling with 2 other rider on the same type of machine.

    Problem is when entering Thai border to Bangkok, we have no idea how will the ride be.
    If anyone that is familiar on these route, it will be useful to give some opinion on the route.

    I will bring along my Garmin and still figuring how many stops and bike friendly motel/hotel
    From google map :- (it looks simple, but no doubt i will get lost in NO TIME as we're not fluent in Thai)

    Suggested routes

    • 1,004 km, 11 hours 22 mins
      Route 41 and Phetkasem Rd
