Scooter safe route from Pattaya to BKK Ratchadamri

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Heading to the Thai Red Cross near BTS Ratchadamri. On car rides I notice no scooters or even motorcycles on the highway. Just wanted to check with you guys if this route can be done on a 125cc motorbike:

If not I'm open to alternative routes, thanks.

Did you notice the signs on motorway 7 forbidding motorcycles?

I am usually asleep on those long highway rides. Unfortunately I need to go to the Red Cross in BKK as it's a special clinic that gives cheap Prep pills in exchange for anonymous research

It''s not the route you should be concerned about, rathar the safety factors of riding a scooter on a hwy where everyone is speeding including giant lories who will sideswipe a little scoot and will not feel a thing...

Ok then. Can someone advise on a route I can take that is legal and comparatively safe? If other Thais ride scooters along that route it would be safe enough for me.

Not open to public transport suggestions. Hopefully someone who doesn't mind riding a little scooter around Thailand can chime in

try an app called "WAZE" you can get it to avoid tollways and freeways.

then wear your earphones under your helmet.

you can get directions and listen to music.

just remember not to loud so you still can hear traffic otherwise the net nannies will say you shouldn't be doing that.

i bought a cheap bluetooth hedset that fitted up to my helmet.  it works a treat.

OP, its basically follow Sukumvit Rd. (follow signs for route 3) Set the route on your phone, some places it will have you on expressways etc, drag and drop the route back to Sukumvit rd (3).

I'm not clever enough to drag and drop on my phone :ohmy:

Maybe easier to do on laptop then send to phone. 

I think in the OP case, just follow route 3, or literally follow the bikes at major intersections.

What do you suggest, stay at home and never go out?

Why can you not come up with useful suggestions rather than posting stupid comments.
