Pilok Kanchanaburi

 

Pilok Kanchanaburi

One of my favourite areas to visit in Thailand.

A twisty windy narrow road up to Pilok.

Watch out for the Bangkok drivers that come down the mountain too fast and in the wrong gear cutting the corners.

After two days riding in Saiyok. I took a day off the bike and drove up here.

If you want to see the bike riding portion of the trip.. A link is at the end of the post.

Back in the town on the helipad.

Looking at this picture.. Can’t believe we rode down this hiking track to the village last November.

Short video riding down the trail in the picture above last November.

Walking around the town.

Drove back to the border to pick up some drinks 😉

Back in Saiyok that evening and enjoying some Myanmar Beer 🙂

Must be my 5th time up here.. Never gets  boring..

First time to drive and just have the freedom to walk around and no rush and bike gear etc.

Previous two days riding in Saiyok
