How to get tyre from Chiang Mai to Mae Sot?

  1. Hi,

    I have a set of spare tyres sitting in a guest house in CM. My rear tyre has just sprung a nasty surprise on me, so that I don't dare to ride back to CM on it.

    Q: is anybody driving this way in the next two weeks? How could I get one tyre shipped to here? I don't have a Thai bank account.

    Any info or assistance appreciated.

  2. Get your guesthouse to put it on the bus to Mae Sot for you.
  3. Thanks, David.

    I thought of that myself, but how can I pay them back the freight cost? Sorr if thi might be a silly question to you, but I have no idea how to go about that in Thailand. Or can I pay the freight on reception?

  4. If you have a good rapport with the guest house you could send them some cash by EMS. Thai Express Post should take 1 or 2 days. Then ask them to put one on the bus.

    Not a brilliant idea but.........
