It looks like there's a new fashion tourist attraction being promoted around the North / the country: Giant Road or Kms Markers.
So why not build up a photo collection of the signs & are bikes.

Been there & done that....post your photos here

To get the ball rolling. Here's the first one & a new? one from Doi Mae Salong

Funny the fashion of building pseudo "Lak Kilo" of all sizes (not all "giant"). Maybe not all are attractions, but at least obvious markers and distances reminders :)

Restaurant in Fang, rte 107

Two milestones - there are actually 3 - in Chiang Khong. And I even did not post the old "mini" from "Fai Coffee Shop" :)

I really was smiling on the PCX. There is a new pink kilometre marker going south just before leaving MaeChan. I would take a photo and show you it but don't know how.

Seen on the Burma border road heading north-west out of Thong Pha Phum on the 3272.
Great ride btw, even in the rain & zero viz, fallen bamboo and rock/mudslides.:thumbup:

Adjacent to the two story Marker is the Crab Coffee Shop
which has good hot coffee to warm up after a rainstorm, nothing to eat.

A good find.

A garden, yes. Home, no.
Public enough and the next hint is Cupcake.
