Fully rested, day 2 starts at a leisurely past after a beach breakfast. A short ride takes us to Chanthaburi town. This historical fishing town is a delight with interesting shops selling Thai craft and gems mined in the local cliffs. Choose one of the many quaint coffee shops to rest in for a while. We will visit the shrine or Somdej Phra Chao Taksin Maharat, this beloved King Taksin holds the highest respect of the Chanthaburi people who have a saying. If you haven’t paid your respect to the king, you haven’t been to Chanthaburi.
The southern-eastern coastal roads are calling us and it’s time to really test our grand tourers. Numerous bays and headlands come into view around every corner and bend as we hug the coastline. The sights and smells of small fishing communities will fill our eyes and nose while we lean our bikes swiftly through twisting roads. Heading inland, our final destination is the stunning countryside of Silver Lake.
This landmark area of 480 square resembles the landscape and mountains of southern Thailand’s most famous tourist locations such as Krabi and Phuket. One of Silver Lakes mountains is held in high regard by Thais, the northern side of the mountain has a sheer rocky face, carved into it is a huge golden Buddhist symbol. This attraction is known as Big Buddha Mountain. Thousands of Thais and Westerners alike come to this monument to pay merit to the Lord Buddha. From a riding point of view, the mountain has a fantastic ring road all the way around it perfect for motorbikes. Various spots have viewing points where the entire area can be seen with its lush rolling hills, vineyards, and glistening silvery lakes. This area is under constant development with many restaurants, coffee shops, and buildings giving a feel of Tuscan Italy with pine trees lining the entrance.
