Thailand highways are very attractive they are tourist attraction itself

Also the driving standard is pretty good , I had a good time driving on Thai highways ( with Thai forumer nazrey ) -highways reach all the way to the remotest parts of the country .

Thailand is still a lower middle income country on paper , but any tourist visiting Thailand for the first time wud be impressed by its First-world standard of infrastructure

Highway No.1 "Phahonyothin"

"Highway to the north."


Length 891 km.
Bangkok(Victory Monument) - Chiang Rai(Mae sai,Thai-Myanmar border)
Bangkok > Phatumthani > **Ayudthaya >Angthong > Sing buri > Chainat > Uthaithani** > Nakhonsawan(Gateway to the Nothern part of Thailand) > Kamphaeng Phet > Tak > Lampang > Phayao > Chiang Rai

**From Ayudthaya to Uthaithani, We will use Hwy. No.32 instead.




This review will start from the end of Donmuang Elevated tollway(This tollway start from Dindaeng,near Victory Monument to Rangsit area in Phatumthaini.)

The Highway No.1 is below.




This interchange is the joint of
Highway No.9 (Bangkok Outer Ring Road East - West)
Highway No.1
Highway No.32 (We will use this highway in the section, Ayudthaya - Nakhon Sawan instead of Hwy. No.1)








We are now on hwy. No.32 .It has been expanded to 3+1 lanes (Left lane is for motorbike.)





Some section of this highway hasn't been expanded yet. (I took this photo in December 2007.)



Continue...




Before approaching Nakhon Sawan city, turn left to the Nakhonsawan By-pass road. (avoid drive through city centre.)




Then, back to Hwy. No.1 again. From this point,we'll use this highway untill the destination.




Hwy. No.1 has been expanded and developed to be divided highway for 5-6years.

Up the hill
(I forgot to tell that from Kamphaengphet untill Chiangrai, each city will be far away from each other so, the driver have to make sure that the petrol in the tank is enough before leaving each city.)








Lampang City. Turn left for Chiang mai.
Hwy. No.11 is from Sing buri to Chiang mai,tourist city.
(Many drivers still use Hwy. No.11 instead of Hwy No.1 because the distance of driving is shorter, especially for truck drivers. But some of its sections still hasn't been expanded yet, so it was really dangerous for beginner driver.)




The city after Lampang is Phayao.

Phayao used to be a district of Chiangrai provience. Because of the size of the town and a very far distance from Chiangrai city, it has been upgraded to be a provience.

Entering Phayao city.

Let's see what have they done to the highway

Good highway needs the safety barrier, not these giant killer stone!!!




Driver view


Max speed in Thailand is 115 km/h , but we usually drive 140 - 160 on the expressway and highway....


In Thailand, when we driving accross the provience. These blue signs will show the word "welcome" and the picture of tourist places.

Entering Chiangrai city. 9 hours passed from Bangkok.





But our Destination is Maesai district which is the end point of this highway. 60 kms. away from Chiangrai

From this point, the quality of the highway is lower than the other section. Because there is no more main city from here, only Maechan and Maesai town.



Finally, we have been arrived in Maesai.




And this is the last mile stone (or the first stone face to Bangkok)



The border control.






The End

Nice pictures! So that's the border with Myanmar. Do you have any pictures from the other side? Pictures of that isolated country are kind of rare.

The buildings in Thachilek town (Myanmar) is similar to Maesai town, but the Infrastructure and people life are "a bit" difference.The shophouses surprised me a lot. Most of them uses barcode, even normal shops.

Notice this 2 towns. It's looks like one town,but it was separate by the river in the middle of the picture.

Songkhla Province, southern Thai

Songkhla is a small town in Songkhla province. It's famous for its Samila Beach, Koh Yor, and Songkhla Zoo. It's a very peaceful, quiet, and richer than Hatyai.
