Planners can reserve the Royal Enfield sidecars with a driver for excursions outside the resort, starting from 3,000 Thai Baht (US$99) per hour.

BANGKOK - Guests at the renowned Anantara Golden Triangle Elephant Camp & Resort in Northern Thailand are in for an exhilarating ride around the Kingdom's ancient jungle and beyond, after the hotel introduced new, unique transportation - two Royal Enfield Classic 500 sidecars.  

Planners will note that Anantara Golden Triangle is the only hotel in Thailand that offers guests this unique transport.

First produced in 1901, Royal Enfield is the oldest motorcycle brand in the world still in production and its old-school, post-war design built around a reliable workhorse ensures passage through most terrains.  

The mobility is ideal for guest transportation around Anantara Golden Triangle that unfolds across 650,000sqm of Northern Thailand's jungle. The resort is perched on a hill overlooking the Mekong and Ruak rivers and offers majestic views over the confluence of Thailand, Laos and Myanmar, and grazing elephants in the most stunning of natural settings below.

Guests can use the Royal Enfield sidecars to explore Thailand's fabled Golden Triangle.

Beyond the borders of the luxury resort and Asia's premier elephant camp, guests can use the Royal Enfield sidecars to explore Thailand's fabled Golden Triangle or take a drive to the mystical mountainous area of Doi Tung, the northernmost tip of Thailand.

The motorcycle tour of the Golden Triangle explores the unique character and traditions of Thailand on its border with Myanmar and includes a guided visit to the Giant Golden Buddha in nearby Chiang Sean; sacred temples built in the eighth, 12th and 14th centuries; a local market; and ancient Lanna experiences.  

Doi Tung is the highest point of the Doi Nang Non mountain range along Thailand's border with Myanmar and is unreachable by coach. But with the Royal Enfield sidecars, explorers can visit Wat Phra That Doi Tung that dates to the 10th century and has a stupa that is reputed to contain Buddha's collarbone, as well as the Doi Tung Royal Villa that was the final residence of Thailand's Royal Grandmother, the mother of the late His Majesty King Bhumibol Adulyadej the Great.

Planners can reserve the Royal Enfield sidecars with a driver for excursions outside the resort, starting from 3,000 Thai Baht (US$99) per hour.
