Myanmar Golden Pagoda Motorcycle Tour From Motodiscovery Brand New Tour

Adventure Enthusiasts, MotoDisocovery has a brand new tour that is just for you. The Golden Pagoda Motorcycle Tour is a brand new tour to the lineup. When you book this your you will reserve your spot to be one of the first outsiders to visit this reclusive nation. The tour is coming soon and spots are filling up quick. We begin this 15 day tour traveling over 1,250 miles on January 7th. Interested parties need to reserve their spots now.

The Golden Pagoda Motorcycle Tour takes place completely in the country of Myanmar. We begin and end our tour in the country. This allows us to maximize the riding along with the cultural experiences for a truly epic adventure. The terrain on this tour is generally mild with mostly paved road riding and the occasional dirt sections and broken pavement. Those with some motorcycle touring experience should be fine on this ride.

The tour begins in the city of Yangon, formerly known as Rangoon. This is a city that has lived years with overcrowding and deterioration. However the city is experiencing the beginning and young stages of capitalism. Locals take to the streets in the evenings and the city comes alive with pop-up markets, tea shops, and restaurants. The evenings provide a break from the blistering heat throughout the day. In the evenings you see the locals enjoying the new found freedom to be outside and congregate. Here you will see locals experiencing the early stages of freedom that westerners have always enjoyed. After an evening in Yangon we begin our trip, traveling north and west, up the Ayeyarwady River Basin. Here we will ride along verdant field and rolling teak forests passing roadside villages that are vibrant, active, and colorful. 

The tour name comes from the predominant Buddhist philosophy throughout the region. Golden Pagodas gleam atop the hillsides and ridges and provide excellent scenery. The Spires of the pagodas shine high above the forest treetops. The people in the region are generally reserved but very kind. Should we need anything the locals will usually go out of their way to help us. 

The team for this tour is comprised of local guide and drivers as well as an experienced staff of mechanics from abroad. The bikes are meticulously maintained and in tip top shape. While this ride may not be for everyone, it is for those who want a true adventure. If you have the “up for anything’ attitude you will flourish on the Golden Pagoda Motorcycle Tour. Don’t let the opportunity to be one of the first to ride Myanmar pass you by.
