I'm coming to Thailand in February with a couple of my friends. We're all riders. The plan right now is to spend three nights and four days touring the Mae Hong Son loop. Then, a week later, we want to take a 6-day, 5-night guided tour of northeastern Vietnam out of Hanoi with Voyage Vietnam. We've never been to southeast Asia before. We're thinking we might be trying to do too many things in too many places for the time we have, though, so I want to think about just doing the Golden Triangle loop. But I don't know much about it - does anyone have a suggested route and itinerary? Do we need a guide? If so, where can we find one? How long should we commit to it? You know, all the usual first-timer questions. Thanks in advance for any help!
