Best time for this tour

This tour should be taken from Oct to the end of April when the weather is moderate with less chance of raining.

Departure time

The tour will start in the morning at 8.00am with a pick up from your hotel in Mandalay. Please be noted that you need to arrive at least one day before the tour starts (we recommend two days earlier to acclimate and avoid jet lag). We are pleased to arrange hotel in Mandalay upon your request with additional cost.

Return time

On the last day, you are free until your departure time so it is possible for you to catch a departure flight or take a connecting flight to extend your beach holiday in Ngapali (Ngapali beach is not recommended between May to end of August due to the rainy season).

Luggage

Most of touring time, you have to bring luggage along with you and pack it on the back of your bike (all of our bikes are installed with stable rack). Chased pick-up truck is arranged on special requirement only. So, the luggage is recommended to be light and easy to tight up.

Fitness

We would not recommend this tour to those who cannot, for instance, climb a flight of stairs without puffing and blowing. Please note that there are some long days in the saddle. We reach some high altitudes on this tour, so if you have any existing medical condition, please consult your doctor before booking.

Gears

We strongly recommend that you bring your own gears to be the most comfortable and all protective. We also provide helmets, gloves, knee and elbow guards which are of high quality brands in many different sizes. Please be noted that we do not offer jackets, boots and trousers due to hygienic reasons. Good trekking or sport shoes and jeans should be enough.

All inclusive

Since almost everything is included in your tour package (motorcycle rental; accommodation; fuel cost; tour guide; all entry fees; all meals: breakfast, lunch and dinner; soft drinks and more), your biggest expenses will be paid for alcoholic beverages in the evening and shopping.

100$ should cover all your expenses if you are not a big drinker. Shopping is great so you might want to bring along some cash in case you see something you really like.
