On the motorbike crossing the Queen Sirikit Lake in Pak Nai

Motorbike Riding in Thailand

Jan'2015 Traveling from Nan to Khon Kaen via route 1026 (Wang Sia to Na Noi and further) and route 1339 (from route 1026 to Ban Pak Nai fishing village). At Ban Pak Nai there is a ferry crossing the Sirikit Lake or actually the point where the Nan River becomes Sirikit Lake. The lake is one of the biggest in northern Thailand and created in 1973 by building the Pha Som Dam (later changed to Queen Sirikit Dam). For more motorbike trip reports see Motorbike Trip Reports. For more information about the beautiful Nan province in North Thailand see Destination Travel Guide Nan - Thailand.

At the East-North side is the fishing village Ban Pak Nai where are restaurants and some places to stay overnight. Traveling-wise the importance of this village is the ferry to the other side. It are small ferries pulled by a even much smaller boat with a very small bit noisy engine. The ferry can carry about 2 or 3 cars and of course people and motorbikes. There seems to be no time-schedule for the ferry. Just tell some people you need the ferry and wait a bit. Ferry crossing takes about 20 min.
