This post covers our time cycling in northern Thailand via Chiang Mai towards Laos in a very hot March.
Thailand is a country made for travelling and has been popular with backpackers for decades now. Cycling is also enjoyed here, making it is popular cycle touring destination. There is a 30-day visa free period for many nations and options to extend if you plan to stay longer. With smooth roads, free camping, good bike shops, all kinds of cuisine, English spoken in many places and cheap water filter machines, cycling here is a breeze (aside from the heat).
