    Seeing that rainy season is here I know that when I'm on the road now I like to look out for covered parking for my bike when staying somewhere overnight.
    So why not have a thread for under cover parking when touring...

    GT Rider has accommodation recommendations listed in each region under trip reports

    North Thailand
    Accommodation - North Thailand

    Esarn North-East Thailand
    Accommodation - Esarn North-East Thailand

    Phuket- South Thailand
    Accommodation - Phuket / South Thailand

    Eastern Thailand
    Accommodation - Eastern Thailand

    Central & Western Thailand
    Accommodation - Central Thailand


    Laos
    Accommodation - Laos

    Vietnam
    Accommodation - Vietnam

    Cambodia
    Accommodation - Cambodia

    but not all of these tips mention whether the accommodation has under cover parking.
    In the hot season the covered parking may not be so important, but certainly in the wet it is better to park your bike under cover.

    A start

    CHIANG MAI: Lux Hotel, a no brainer - the best value for money in Chiang Mai.
    FANG: Preeya Mansion
    MAE SARIENG: Riverbank Hotel
    NAN: Dheveraj Hotel
    PHAYAO: Phu Thong Place
    CHIANG RAI: Sabai Inn

    VIENTIANE: Ekalath Hotel

    Lazy as I am, I went for this solution.

    Toss out one of the bikes, and I can sleep there too.

    Mulligan's Irish Bar Sukhumvit Soi 11 Bangkok.

    https://www.google.com/maps/search/Mulligan's+Irish+bar+Sukhumvit+Soi+11+Bangkok/@13.7427217,100.5568934,17z

    It is part of the Citidines hotel and has a 24 hr liquor licence.

    You can park the bikes down below in secure parking. Even if only drinking at the bar with the Bangkok Weekend Warriors.

    More than a few times the guys have had too many beers and left the bike and picked it up the next day.

    Cheers
    Brian

    A cautionary word of advice when parking in basement areas during the wet season. I know this concerns a pick-up and my friend left his truck parked in underground parking in a hotel in Pattaya whilst he was in Norway for two weeks, BUT on his return all he could see was the roof rails. A motorbike would have been totally submerged.....funny though
