        How to dress for a temple tour ?

        There is a dress etiquette for entering a Thai temple.

        Please dress politely, to respect the temple and monks practices, and as appropriate to the season.

        For women: Wear something that covers your legs, and don’t wear tank tops, or sleeveless or low-cut shirts.

        For unplanned visits where you may have inappropriate clothing, you can often buy or rent a sarong at the entrance of many temples.  

        How can I join a scooter tour if I don't know how to ride a bike ? 

        Can I ride a scooter if I have no experience ? 

        If you have no driving experience at all, including cycling, or we assess that you have no experience, we have two options for you, for your own safety.

        1. You can choose to be a passenger, and we will take you on a safe and worry-free journey.

        2. You can choose to try and learn to drive a motorcycle by yourself. For this you must notify us of in advance, and tell us the number of people who are interested in learning how to ride. For example:

        "I'm interested in learning how to ride a motorcycle. I also have 1 friend who would like to be a passenger."


        "We are 2 people, both interested in learning how to ride a motorcycle, before taking a driving test, and going on our trip."  

        If the driving test completed within the specified time and you feel confident to ride by yourself you may do so. If you still feel insecure about driving by yourself, or our instructors feel that it would not be safe, we welcome you to be a pillion rider.

        We have accident insurance to cover medical expenses in the amount of 30,000 baht, but this does not include damages to the motorcycle, which you must be responsible for if you ride by yourself.

        How old do you have to be to join a scooter tour? 

        1. To ride as a passenger on a motorcycle tour you have to be at least 6 years old.

        2. 16+ years old to drive by your self, providing you have some experience on a scooter or motorbike. (ํThe decision to ride by yourself means that you take full responsibility.) 

        3. You should have a motorcycle license.
