About Myanmar Bike Rental
My name is Tim, and I’ve been living in Myanmar for over 15 years. I recently decided to start Myanmar Bike Rentals, to share both my love of this amazing country, as well as my love of traveling by motorcycle.
There is such a massive difference in the experiences you can have between travelling by car/bus, and travelling by motorcycle. When in a car or bus, you are closed off from the countryside or people around you. Your destination is your main focus. When on a motorcycle, you are no longer a passive spectator to the views passing by your window. You are an active participant in whatever environment you are passing through. You are not just seeing, you are experiencing….the sights, sounds, smells…… Although your destination remains just as important, your journey, the act of getting, there has taken on a whole life of its own.
I rent out bikes to travellers who want to have the freedom to drive themselves around Mandalay, and the surrounding areas, or for the more adventurous minded, you can take one of the bikes for a longer tour around the country. That said, there are some areas of the country which are off limits to tourists, so please try to give us a general idea of where you are intending to go and we will be able to advise you on what’s possible. Currently, Inle Lake and Bagan are off limits to tourists on motorcycles, unless with a large organized tour.
In addition to the motorcycle rentals, we also offer guided “Big Bike Tours” of Mandalay and the surrounding cities. We keep these tours small (maximum of 4 bikes) and will tailor them to your tastes, so if interested, get in contact with us and tell us what you are interested in seeing and experiencing, and we will do our best to make it happen.
