one more additional suggestion for hotel.

 

I would usually go to the "bus stop - travel agent" look at the price listed on the hotel and book the room there.

 

History: i remember the price there is cheaper then walk in. usually i just buy the amount of day i wish to stay at the agent. walk to the hotel and present to the counter the receipt.

i stayed at hatyai merlin hotel,walk in 400bht,it's a 5 min walk away from Lee Garden.Used to stay at Golden Crown till they raised their prices to 700+bht.Merlin is like Golden Crown but older, but alot of food stalls n 7-11 just outside. U should get a Dtac SIM card from any hp shop in Thailand for abt 199bht. Topup cards are readily available at any 7-11 in the whole of thailand. it's cheaper to call back SGP,but u must dial 00965 1st, 5bht/call and 5bht/min. local call is 1bht/call and 1bht/min.

 

REMEMBER: dial 00965 for call home.sms is just +65,10bht/sms. call cheaper.

 

at hatyai,u can go to the Guanyin temple in the hill,just next to the army camp,very near to Carrefour. at the foot of the hill there is a park like our botanical gardens,u can buy fish feed and feed the fishes there. or u can ride 26km to Songkla n feed the monkeys. it's just a suggestion, not for everybody.

 

if u have time,go to Sukhothai Historical Park. There are 2 Sukhothais, 12km apart. I stayed at New Sukhothai town n rode over to Old Sukhothai to visit the historical park. 100bht/entry and 20bht for bike. u can ride your bike in. sunset time is the best,thai time 5pm.

 

i can PM u my thai friend's hp if u want it,PM me to confirm. He opens a Bak Kut Teh cum Timsum shop in Hatyai, a go-to-guy for me when i need to book hotel rooms and basically get around town in the early beginning. Now i just make my way to his shop for a hearty breakfast every morning i'm in Hatyai. I cant comment on his food coz we all have different taste,but i eat it every time i'm there.

 

when at Maehongson,u can stay at Friend's Guesthouse, 150bht/nite for communal bathroom and 250bht/nite for attached bathroom. it is a small family run guesthouse and u can rent a bike at 200bht/day from PA,which is just next to the guesthouse. I always stay there,very nice people u'll meet staying there.It is also 3 min walk to the MHS nite bazaar. dont get MHS tees at the bazaar,ride around and u can get them at half the price.It's a very,very small town,dont need map.

 

if u do need to buy the MHS sticker and collect the cert,it's at the road directly across the nite bazaar. open 8.30am-5pm. i am still wondering why they do that for(the cert/stickers).

 

also at the place u rent the bike,they'll give u a self drawn map to visit the interesting places around. go to Mae Aw(MUST GO),it's a 45km ride away,along the way will pass by Fish Cave and other interesting places.go in the morning ,can be back by 3 in the afternoon.

 

disclaimer: for all the info that i've shared,if u benefit from it,dun thank me. if it stinks, dun curse me.

luminox u thailland info expert ah :lol: :thumb:

 

Jotted all the info liao, very much appreciated.

 

I stayed hatyai merlin 20 years back ....infact just went there

to eat tim sum at bah kut tehs...(near neo hatyai hotel) so much has changed

last time whole street fish tank.

 

Im making some drastic change to my journey now, may head other direction.

 

Catchup with u when I log - on again ...

 

Think i dun off topic from mi5trooper thread liao...:sorry:

 

Cheers! :cheer:

Hi pals. Never have i expected with so many respond. Thanks for the info.

As i usually enter the site once in a few days time, do add my msn to your computer. my work place uses msn to communicate, which mean it is turn on during the working hour. thanks.

 

I will ask for a vote. pls vote for the trip date as below (voting only require for those that confirm going).

 

1. 16-19 June (sat, sun, mon, tue)

2. 23-26 June (sat, sun, mon, tue)

 

please note that the departure date is fri late evening.

 

Hi mi5trooper, I am interested if the travelling is at a leisurely pace.

I think 23 -26 June is a better date because is it not school holidays and the place and roads will not be so crowded and hotels will be cheaper too.

And a stop over in Malaysia is a good idea because it is too tiring to ride that long a time at one go.

 

Please keep me updated here because I don't have MSN.

 

Old man here too.

It doesn't make any difference whether a motorcyclist has the right-of-way or not, the rider is the one most likely to get hurt.

sigh.. this is super embrassing. my leave got rejected (15min ago). my boss tell me only early june or early july. reason he say is end of june is the busy time where no body should take leave.

 

1st week of july is good to take leave (say by the boss).

 

Do you guys want to go ahead without me or willing to change date? (i have send this msg to all the people with msn too)

 

i am so sad.

dear friends, let cast another vote. the date is 30th june till 3rd july. (sat, sun, mon, tue). Please voice your opinion to me. either here or msn. i will write the outcome again asap. Thank you.

dear friends, as there is quite a number of people, if you guys decide to proceed on with the 23 jun plan (without me), it is also workable. it is not difficult as the whole trip involve in Northsouth highway 90%.

in about 1-2 week time. we will have a small and short gathering (for those who are going only). This gathering is for all to meet each other. team building action.

 

just a few liner i wish to said:-

1. each of us are responsible to ensure our bike are in good running condition.

2. As a team player, we will look after each other.

3. We are suppose to have fun and enjoy the trip, ride safely.

4. We are all grown up, we should be responsible of our action/decision.

 

 

 

** If any brothers can lent us your thai sim card, it will be helpful. we will top up the value (which will also extend your card expire period).
