About Mae Hong Son
Mae Hong Son is a remote town located in narrow valley about 5 hours drive to the North West of Chiang Mai near the border with Myanmar. This is a very scenic part of Thailand which is more popular with Thai tourists than foreign tourists. Thai tourists come to Mae Hong Son partly because of the scenery and partly because during the period from November to February the temperature drops to around 10 degree Celsius at night which is cool for Thailand.
Mae Hong Son is a great base for trekking and a lot of local guesthouses and tour companies offer guided treks of differing lengths often with overnight stays in mountain villages. Other popular activities include a visit to the Pha Sua Waterfall, the Tham Pla Fish Cave and bamboo rafting at Pang Oung. In Mae Hong Son town you may enjoy walking around the town centre pond and a visit to Wat Phrathat Doi Kong Mu, which overlooks the town.
