    Solo traveler, don't have experience with a motorbike, so I plan on starting the Mae Hong Son loop on Monday in a rental car. Any advice? Anyone interested in coming along? Does anyone know where to pick up the gt rider map locally? Thanks! Sara

    Usually the rental place will give you a map. The route is rather simple. Most do it on Motorbike.

    "Most do it on Motorbike"

    Dunno about that. You count the number of cars compared to bikes? Without experience it's not the sort of thing a person should be doing, riding a bike around mountain areas. Car is much safer and better if it rains.

    You can buy a map in 7/11s if the car hire place doesn't have a good one, otherwise look online and print one out. Northern Wheels is a good place to hire a car.

    There's a list of map sales outlets on the GT-Rider website
    http://www.gt-rider.com/maps-of-thailand-laos-maps/retail-map-sales-outlets-thailand
    I sell them too, in case you have trouble locating.

    Given how rainy it's been lately I'd definitely choose a car over a bike. Check out http://www.northwheels.com
