    THE GOLDEN TRIANGLE LOOP MAP

    374386096_urDwb-S.

    The best GT Rider map so far.

    Covers: Chiang Mai - Fang - Tha Ton - Doi Mae Salong - Doi Tung - Mae Sai - Golden Triangle - Chiang Saen - Chiang Khong - Chiang Kham - Phayao - Chiang Mai. Perfect for 4-7 days touring around the Golden Triangle & top end of North Thailand.

    This map is a first for the Golden Triangle with

    The topography nicely shaded in to give the renowned best selling B&B North Thailand guide map a run for its money.
    However the colours in the GT Rider map are arguably more beautiful & carefully selected to make the map significantly clearer than the B&B map.

    ROAD ELEVATION PROFILES
    Profiles of the GT's greatest steepest winding motorcycling roads! These profiles are an absolute winner for cyclists pedaling the Golden Triangle.
    1. Route 1340 Arunothai – Doi Ang Khang road
    2. Route 1249 The Doi Ang Khang roadf
    3. R1130 & R1234 The Doi Mae Salong road
    4. R3051 & R4032 Akha Sam Yaek – Thoed Thai Mae Moh road
    5. R1334 The Thoed Thai –Doi Tung road
    6. R1093 The Phu Chi Fa road

    The map is available in both paper & plastic versions.
    The paper map retails for 150 baht & the plastic map for 250 baht

    Previously the best maps for the top North were
    1. The Hongsombud Chiang Rai province map. But this no longer available. Accurate but without any topography the Hongsombud map only covered Chiang Rai province, so was useless once you crossed the provincial border & went to Chiang Mai or Phayao.
    2. The Berndston & Berndston North Thailand, also drawn by David Unkovich in 1997. The was first real accurate guide map to North Thailand, but the only city maps were Chiang Mai, Chiang Rai & Mae Hong Son. Also because of the scale / size of the map it was impossible to include all the fine detail & data that the GT Rider Golden Triangle map has.

    Updated list of shops in Chiang Rai.

    For anyone planning a bike ride around the Top NOrth" this map is a must for planning & getting an idea of the layout of the land & loop options. Don't just rely on a GPS.

    Dfl - when you mention the maps it may to some appear as if you're simply pushing them. Having travelled with you many times I know that's not the case.

    As someone who has ridden many kilometres, indeed throughout the whole of Thailand, Laos & Vietnam, & documented many of my adventures on this forum I feel compelled to add my bit in saying that I found the GTR map an indispensable part of my travelling equipment, something I prefer to GPS but an invaluable partner in any case.

    I found the maps gave me a global feel for the various country road configurations, topographical & points of interest information that assisted me greatly both when planning & whilst undertaking trips. Often I still consult my GTR maps when reading the reports of others.

    Long live the map!

    I agree. Paper maps still play a very imortant role and should be taken on every trip if available, especially off-road adventures. This is taken from an article on Off-Road Safety Tips: Paper Maps: Always bring paper maps of the area you are traveling, even if you have a GPS. Paper maps make it easier to plan a new route when something unexpected happens and it’s good to have a backup if your GPS breaks.

    Agree....paper maps give you more of an idea of where you are in relation to where you want to be.

    Unless you leave your map on the table in a coffee shop........sigh......

    I'll pick up another one for the Nan area next week.......

    Didn't realise GT Rider maps had become so fashionable that they are now considered coffee shop table literature!

    Hi, I've been traipsing around Chiang Mai trying to buy a copy of this, as our set of maps we bought 3 years ago is in storage in the UK (I know!). We want to spend some more time up in the Golden Triangle as it was our favourite part of the touring we did last time. No one seems to have a copy (we've tried 5 or 6 places so far), and one guy told us it's out of print as it's being updated. So, does anyone have a copy we could beg, borrow or buy, please? We're hoping to leave CNX on Wednesday and would be happy to pick it up from anywhere reasonably local, or meet up somewhere. Thanks!

    Sorry Sarah you will be lucky to find one.

    BTW the new map should be at the printers in the queue at end of this week / early next week all being well.

    Thanks for your reply David, but unfortunately that'll be too late for us - we've only got a couple of weeks up here this time round, and we've already delayed leaving CNX by longer than we'd originally planned. Hoping that someone out there has one we can buy or borrow - would be happy to leave a deposit for a loaner, or buy a 2nd hand one as long as it's in reasonable nick. We did ask to buy the one on the wall in the Kafe the other day, but she wasn't selling! Failing that we'll be back to Google maps and maps.me on the phone, which just isn't quite the same as a map in hand...

    Sarahj,

    I have a spare copy which you can have. I'll be at Eagle GPS (2nd. Floor in Panthip Plaza which is at the corner of Chang Khlan Rd. with Si Don Chai Rd.) around 10 -10.30 to deliver GPS maps and can give it to you there or leave it there for you to pick up.

    Javawa, you are a star, thank you! Only just seen your message though, as we slept in this morning, so are clearly not at Eagle GPS for 10-10:30. If you could leave it there we'll pick it up later, and we owe you a beer/coffee/beverage of your choice if we ever do manage to meet up - we are heading over there now in case you're still there :)

    Fab, we shall buy a new one next time we make it over to Thailand, David.

    Many thanks for the loan Javawa, have made good use of it to reacquaint ourselves with some of the fab roads around the NW and along the Burmese border (as far as they would let us ride, anyway!) - we never tire of the views up there. Will drop it back to Eagle GPS today. Just wish we were staying longer, but such is life... next time :)

    Thanks. I like doing the research too, David.
    The GTR Motorcycle Guide is still useful too. I actually still have the older mini booklet somewhere from my first adventures, back in the MTX125 days..!
