Chiang Mai on Two Wheels

If you ride a motorcycle, a motorbike is a great way to get around Chiang Mai and the surrounding areas. Mr. Mechanic and Mr. Beer are two reliable bike rental shops. Only do this if you are a confident and experienced rider; the traffic in Thailand does not work the way it does in the west. I like to ride my bike to Wat Phratha Doi Suthep, a beautiful temple on the top of the mountain just outside of town. It’s a great bike ride and once there the view of the Chiang Mai valley below can be breathtaking on a clear day. Go to the back of the temple proper to the small shrine room and receive a blessing from the monk who presides. —Andy Ricker
