Maps for motorcycle touring in Southeast Asia as as useful as anywhere else in the world. While our smartphones threaten to outwit us, sometimes you can’t beat a good old fashioned map, especially the GT Rider variety. They are the Southeast Asia specialists and all GT Rider maps have been properly surveyed on the ground using a GPS and are accurate for the following:

  • Precise distances in km
  • Road classifications
  • Names of villages & towns
  • Local attractions
  • City Maps
  • Elevation profiles and topography
  • They are ultra sturdy laminated plastic maps and won’t let you down when the wifi runs dry in the mountains!

Some of the routes they cover include:

  • The Golden Triangle
  • Mae Hong Son Loop
  • The Mae Sa Valley Samoeng Loop
  • Laos PDR Map Guide

We used their map for the Mae Hong Son Loop in Northern Thailand a couple of years ago and found it particularly useful for accommodation suggestions and detours.

GT Rider also have a great site and forum for planning rides throughout Southeast Asia, which is well worth a visit before you head out there.
