This article delves into the details of planning your budget while touring on a motorcycle with Big Bike Tours, ensuring that your experience on two wheels is a unique and unforgettable one.

Our goal is simple: to create an unforgettable, worry-free experience as you explore new terrains and cultures with joy and ease.

Flexibility of Our Tours

One of the most appealing aspects of Big Bike Tours is the perfect blend of structure and flexibility. While the open road awaits, riders have the freedom to explore and make each journey their own. The company lays out preferred routes bustling with sights of mesmerizing landscapes, from the majestic Himalayas to the lush countryside of Northern Thailand.

Despite this, adventurers have the liberty to carve their own path, visiting local attractions or simply enjoying the ride at their pace. This flexibility ensures that every participant’s personal preferences and riding styles are catered to, making each tour a unique experience.

Additional Expenses: The Extra Delights

Despite the all-encompassing nature of Big Bike Tours’ packages, riders should anticipate some expenses that can affect their budget while touring on a motorcycle.

Independent Sightseeing

When you feel like setting out on your own, remember that visiting new attractions or parks outside our planned itinerary might mean you have to cover the entrance fees. Those extra discoveries are a great chance to see more, but they do come with a small cost. Allocate roughly $20-$50 per site visit. This covers the spectrum from minor attractions to major national parks.

Enjoying Local Drinks

Our evenings are designed for relaxation, and if you want to have a drink, alcohol is the one thing not included in your package. It’s the perfect moment to try the area’s drinks, which is a fun part of getting to know the culture a bit better. If you enjoy unwinding with a drink, budgeting about $10-$30 per day will keep you covered, depending on your preferences for local versus imported beverages.

Snacking on Local Treats

We’ve made sure you won’t be hungry by including all your main meals. But if you get the urge to nibble on something while you’re out and about, buying snacks or local bites will mean spending a little extra. It’s also a cool chance to chat with local shopkeepers and sample the street food that places like Thailand, Laos, or Cambodia are famous for. For those midday cravings or the urge to dive into local street food, setting aside $5-$15 daily should suffice for trying various snacks.

Taking Home Memories

Thinking about souvenirs to remember your trip by? There are plenty of unique and locally made things to buy. Just set aside some of your shopping budget for these treasures so you can bring back a part of your travels for friends and family. To bring back memories or gifts, a budget of $50-$100 can cover everything from small keepsakes to more substantial items.

Local Entertainment

Getting to know the culture doesn’t stop at sightseeing; it extends into entertainment, too. Shows that highlight traditional dances or local talent, like those you might find in Chiang Mai or Luang Prabang, really show off the culture, and these experiences might cost a little extra, but they’re worth it for the deeper experience they provide. For experiencing local shows or cultural performances, expect to spend $10-$50 per event, depending on the exclusivity and location.

Anticipating these extras that can affect your budget while touring on a motorcycle ensures that you can immerse fully in the regional delights, making your adventure truly unforgettable. A safe additional budget for a week-long tour could range between $250 and $500, but keep in mind, these figures can vary based on personal preferences and the regions being visited. It’s always a good idea to have a little extra saved up for unforeseen adventures or must-have purchases along the way.
