Hello
I should be visiting next month planing to hire a bike in Pattaya and ride over to Hua Hin via the bridge over the river Kwai.
I have never been to Hua Hin before so any advice re good roads , places to eat etc really appreciated. I have looked at the forum and watched the night ride post .
Thanks and safe riding

The ride apart from getting lost in bangkok :) was fine and the trips around the area and up to the river Kwai were good .
I am back next month but want to hire a bike from anywhere around hua hin if you now anywhere I can hire one ? as I really don't want to ride through bangkok again .
Didn't make that bar but will try it
Thanks
Safe riding
Paul

I've only ever seen scooters for rent in Hua Hin.... If you want a "real" bike best to rent in Bangkok or Pattaya.

Thanks very much for your replies appreciated when I was their last year I saw a advert for big bikes in Cha-am but can't find it again just trying to avoid riding through Bangkok again
Safe riding

You are right, there are big bikes for rent in Cha-Am, outside a shop on the main beach, a couple of 650cc cruisers and a 400cc honda
At the moment only a phone number attached to bikes as the shop is closed...low season.

Hi Paul,
I was in Cha am yesterday for a coffee, found the bikes, but the shop was shut. A notice with a phone number was attached to one of the bikes.
Try; 089 5498015

Cheers
