Best ever roads driven on 12:28 - Jul 17 with 3082 viewsenfieldargh

Most beautiful roads for scenery I've been on.

Nan Province: Lon Fah Road 1256 from Pua to Salt lakes on highway 1081 close to Thai-Laos border.

Amazing scenery with winding roads up and down hills into valleys all surrounded by jungle covered mountains. Go off season as tourists tend to park their cars on blind bends to take photos.

UK love the route from Pitlochry to Aberdeen A924/B950/A93 and as many off shoot routes as I can find

captains fantastic

The North Coast route in Northern Ireland. Every weather imaginable in a few hours.

Did I ever mention that I was in Minder?

In Britain, the A68 over Hadrian's Wall and over the border to Jedburgh and on towards Edinburgh.

In Ireland, the Skellig Ring between Ballinskelligs and Portmagee.



Anywhere else, the Tranfagararasan Highway over the Carpathians in Romania.

Love the A68, better than an Alton Towers ride

Not the most spectacular, but not bad for a Wednesday commute!

Can I mention the A14 from Felixstowe to the M1/M6,or should I save that for the worst roads driven on thread?

One day I plan to travel the whole of Route 66,so I guess it will be that one.Not the A66 one though.

The A12 should be on that list, the closest you’ll get here to the terror of an Italian autostrada.

1. The Great Ocean Road in Victoria Australia. I did about half of it in 1999 with a few friends.



2. Gran Canaria on a lads holiday about 2004/05. One day we escaped the pool and the bars and hired a couple of open top jeep things and drove around to the North side of the Island. Then drove back through the centre of the island, up over the towering mountains and volcanos. It was epic.



3. West Dorset hills. Some lovely driving around there.

The M25 tends to be a bit like that too,especially the northern section from around J23 to the M4.It is mostly 4 lanes,but it needs to be about 6 lanes.

I did part of the great ocean road from Melbourne 4 years ago,but as I was driving I didn’t get the best views.We went to those rocks in your picture,and it really made for some great photos.
I hear that the Californian coast road is quite spectacular too,so might be an added option after finishing Route 66,if there is enough money left on my plastic friend.

M27 between Fareham and Southampton during the roadworks that have been on for the past 3 years!
Other than that, try the Hardnott Pass in the Lake District.

Another vote for the Pacific Coast.

Loved the Ligurian Coast around Portafino and Cinque Terra.

Would also throw in Ireland's Wild Atlantic Way - West Cork, Kerry, Clare, Galway, Mayo, Sligo and Donegal are all stunning.

A seconder for the Great Ocean Road.

Went all the way from Adelaide to Melbourne, with a couple of stops en route.

We did the bit nearer Melbourne and stayed overnight in or near Port Fairy. Next day we drove inland to the Grampian Mountains. Visited the Elephant Hide rock (called so because it looks like the arse end of an Elephant - which it did), then up to the Moora Moora reservoir, before driving back to Melbourne.

Speaking of roads I'm off for a bike ride!

Not technically a road but the best bit of tarmac I've ever riden on and the closest to 200mph I ever got!

I give you Mugello, nestled deep in the Tuscan countryside.

Big Sur north to south a great trip, done it a few times all the way down from San Fran to Los Angeles and San Diego.

La Paz to Corico - statistically the worlds most dangerous road and the only road on mainland South America that’s driven on the left. Cycled down, bused back up utterly incredible. Basically anything on the south island of NZ.

The road going down from LA Paz airport (1200ft ?) to La Paz city was breathtaking - pity the crazy driver couldn't have taken it a bit easier at 6 am. Looking down on the La Paz crater with the snow-capped mountain (Illimani?) as backdrop was quite stunning.

Did that with my then girlfriend on the back of a scooter!
Suffice to say when we got back we had a slap up meal and a lot if beer & wine.
Really enjoyed it in a kamikaze kind of way.
