    I am heading to Koh Kong Cambodia. Am in Chiang Mai and wondering if anyone knows a reasonably easy route to bypass Bangkok. I hear that motorcycles are prohibited on some of the major expressways making it hard for riders to bypass the city. Is it possible to ride on routes 9 and 7 to get around the city with the bike. Any advise or google map routes would be much appreciated. Thanks

    Thanks. I have done that route from south to north and it really was a great ride. But I am looking for the quickest route from CM to Koh Kong.

    If you are in Chiang Mai there is no need for you to come anywhere near Bangkok. mbox's recommended route is a good one! :happy5:

    Drop down via Pakchong and Khao Yai, then to Chantaburi and Trat......
