Thailand to the UK route options and advise?

HI,

I'm in the early stages of planning a tour from Thailand to the UK, I'm a Brit working in Thailand and would like to ride home:-)

looking at the route options i'm preferring China to Kazakhstan then ferry across the Caspian sea to Azerbaijan then on to Turkey. Once back in Europe i'm not too bother where I end up heading tbh.

Does any one have experience of this route or comments for alternate routes?

Oh this will be primary a solo ride.

regards Damian.

That has to be 7000mi, probably more. What timeframe are you planning to ride this in?



Myanmar, India, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Uzbekistan, then all the countless Euro countries depending on which route you take- That would be a hell of an adventure.

Hi,

I was assuming about 6 to 7 months for the time frame. Did a google map route (ruffly) and it was coming out at 9500 miles!!

In regards to the route I would love to ride in India but Pakistan and Iran are areas of concern to me due to the current politics and me being a white guy from the UK, I really don't want to be on you tube in an orange suit looking at a big knife!!!!!

China and kazakhstan seams to be a more safer route but its way more remote so i'm concerned with supplies / food, I don;t mind ruffing it but we all need good food to keep the peddles turning :-)

Cheers Damo
