Also known as the ‘Switzerland of Thailand’, the Mae Hong Son province has beautiful green valleys, dense forests, mountains, waterfalls and caves. The main city of the same name is also called the ‘City of Three Mists’ after the dewy winter mist, summer’s fire mist and the rainy day mist. A 25-minute flight from Chiang Mai will take you to Mae Hong Son where you can relax in any of its various resorts. Go rafting along Mae Pai River and see pebbled river beds or along the Mae Ngao River for the virgin scenery along the river banks. Exploring caves or ‘spelunking’ is a popular activity and the Tham Pla (Fish Cave) and Tham Lod caves are favourite haunts. Mae Hong Son is also a cultural focal point of Thailand and the place to go for Thai massages and hot spring saunas. The night reverberates with life in the city of Pai with a number of cafes, restaurants and bars with live music. With something for everyone, a tour to Mae Hong Son will be the perfect family vacation!
