Highway 11 South

From Chiang Mai to Lampang

Highway 11 starts in the western part of Chiang Mai and runs all the way around the city, proceeding north, north-east, east and then around to the south having circumnavigated ther northern fringes of Chiang Mai City. From Chiang Mai it runs all the way to Sing Buri far in the south (near Bangkok).
However, this section deals with where Highway 11 has an intersection with Highway 1006 (just east of Chiang Mai).

The Highway progresses away from Chiang Mai where it passes the silk-manufacturing city of Lamphun, before reaching Lampang where this section concludes...

Where to Tour in Chiang Mai Province

Road Lore: Rider Warning! If travelling north on a bike on the Highway 11 watch out! There are a set of three or four deep pot-holes just when you're approaching the blue 'Welcome to Chiang Mai' sign. They are just in-between the bike lane and inside lane.
Be warned, a small bike hitting these could potentially throw its rider.
