The road to Sangkhlaburi

Posted by joaquin55555 on 3/10/2013 at 10:20

Hello,
I've just read the feature story : "The road to Sangkhlaburi"! Greatness... Now I was wondering if there's any chance you can rent a motorbike for a single way trip? For example 2 day rent and leave it in Sangkhlaburi?
One of the must sees is a visit to Khao Laem National Park. But on there website they mention it's a bit cold (min 10°) in December?! So no swimming in the waterfalls?
There a lot of tips/hints in the article but any additions will be highly appreciated... I'm planning this little trip around the 17th of December..

Thx..

I doubt very much that you'll find a company that exists in both of those towns that would allow you to rent a motorbike and do a one-way trip and drop-off.

Last time I was in the area was a few years ago during late December and early January. I found the afternoon temperatures perfect for swimming. Water was cool, but the sun was nice and warm. But with weather these days, who can say?

If you are going during a Thai holiday or weekend, make sure you have a reservation. The place will be packed!

I agree with Tilapia that you'll probably not be able to find a rental shop to do that.

What you could do is ride up and then throw the bike on the roof of a local bus for the run back -- you'd need to pay a surcharge to do so, but I think they'll do it -- though to be honest -- I'd just ride it back as well -- see half the sights going up and the other half going back.
