  3. This is very funny, but in fact it is) Two months ago I was in Thailand and there just as described in this post! Yes, there you can not rent a horse and travel around the city, but you can rent a scooter, as I did. In Chiang, May, I found Cat Motors company . In which I rented a scooter and drove around the city throughout my vacation.
