'2nd Ride' to Mae Hong Son, Golden Triangle & Myanmar... Part 2

Heyya...

On the 3rd day, we left Mae Sod at 7.00 o'clock in the morning for Mae Hong Son's 1864 Corners, the day was still dark as we left the town.. as we were entering Route 105, which leads to Mae Sariang, the road was slippery and condition was foggy.. i had no problems with my vision as i was wearing my trustworthy Scott Goggles that helps to keep the mist off my glasses...

















The Mae Sod - Mae Sariang route is also known for Border Route as you'll be riding along the river which separates Myanmar and Thailand... Myanmar will always be in your sight when you ride along this route...

The distance between Mae Sod and Mae Sariang is only 230 km on Route 105.. it is just a short ride but it was an easy ride as it was hardly to meet any incoming vehicles... the road was empty for most of the time...



Upon reaching Mae Sariang, we stopped for breakfast at restaurant which sells great Khao Mun Gai and Iced Cafe Latte... Mae Sariang is a small town that located in between Mae Hong Son and Chiang Mai.. hence the road condition on Route 108 to Mae Hong Son from Mae Sariang is better and wider than the previous road (Mae Sod to Mae Sariang route)..

Starting from Mae Saring to Mae Hong Son, the cornering types were medium and long corners... and there were lots of chicanes.. beautiful chicanes especially when riding the GS Adventure.. really enjoyed riding on Route 108 until i reached Mae Hong Son.. the ride was so amazing and i even thought of making another run to Mae Sariang and back to Mae Hong Son again... heheee...






We reached Mae Hong Son at 1.00 pm and checked-in at my favourite hotel, Baiyoke Chalet... it is clean, decent hotel and located in the middle of Mae Hong Son town...





































Grabbed lunch and not to forget, the Mae Hong Son's 1864 Corners Certificate at the Mae Hong Son Council Municipal which is located right next to Baiyoke Chalet... I was so proud to receive my Second certificate since this was my second ride to Mae Hong Son's 1864 Corners i've done in 3 months of time... what a great self-achievement!!!

After lunch we went to Long Neck Karen Village, located in Ban Noi Soi which is only 20 km from Mae Hong Son town... It is perhaps most well-known for the refugee camp found there and for having the largest Karenni settlement of the three villages.. Thai authorities view Ban Mai Nai Soi as a self-staining refugee camp...
























Also, did a haircut at my regular salon in Mae Hong Son...




Total distance from Mae Sod to Mae Hong Son is 320 km..





HooRahh!!
