We will spend our first rest day in Urumqi to get used to the Chinese lifestyle, then it’s back on our bikes to explore the little-known landscape on our way to the famous Terracotta Army at Xian. Continuing southwest, we pass through Chengdu before reaching the wonderful towns of Lijiang and Dali, where we will spend some time before crossing the border into Laos.
Laos is also not a typical tourist country. It would be quite surprising to meet other motorcycle tourists here. A couple of days of riding through the northern edge of Laos leads us into Thailand, where we play around in the mountains of Chiang Mai. After nearly two months, we reach our journey’s end in Bangkok, the capital of Thailand.
