Getting Around Mae Hong Son

Around Town:


Mae Hong Song city is a small town that can be explored on foot, though there are many tuk tuks for rides in and around the city.


Around the province:


By Motorbike:

Many of the guesthouses in provincial towns rent motorbikes for exploring the areas surrounding the towns, but visitors should be aware of the dangers of doing so. Besides the occasional scam, foreigners are frequently involved in road accidents and Mae Hong Son features far more dangerous roads than it does first class medical facilities. If you must, ride carefully and wear both a helmet and closed-toed shoes. Motorbikes can be hired for 150 - 500 Baht a day depending on size.
