    Is anyone aware of a fairly painless mc route around BKK. I'll be riding south from Lamphang to Phang nga.
    Thanks in advance!

    I have chosen this route the 2 times I have ridden in the same direction:
    From R1 at Chainat onto R340 to Suphanburi and continue on R321 from Suphanburi down to R4 at Nakhon Phatom.
    Theres also a ring road around the main part of Suphanburi which is R357. Through the Suphanuri area there seems to always be a good bit of traffic but it still a better option than going through BKK.... 4BFFE26A-58C8-4B73-BC67-CF7891D90EE2.

    Thanks, Dodraugen.
    I got fubarred heading South last time, when MapsMe (or my interpretation of it) couldn’t handle one of those multi-ramp flyover intersections and it spat me out into deepest darkest BKK. I should’ve chosen Yangon as a waypoint t’be sure t’be sure...

    When using the ferry south of BBK city I noticed that it is a dip in the traffic about 2pm. You need to be very observant to notice.:)
    Might be the same north of BKK too..
