As a province somewhat off the typical tourist route, Mae Hong Son is best reached by air, though travelling via private car, public bus, or motorbike can be a long and wild ride, which is either good or bad depending on how susceptible you are to motion sickness. For a price, the flight is far faster. Once in Mae Hong Son there are local busses, songtaews, and motorbike taxis for trips between provincial towns and to attractions outside of those towns, such as hot springs and waterfalls.
