By Bicycle:

Bicycles can be hired in the provincial capital and in Pai. Simple push bikes are inexpensive; nicer mountain bikes are a bit more expensive, but better for tackling hills.


By Car:

A four-wheel-drive vehicle is recommended for travel into the mountains, where not all roads are sealed. Drivers should exercise extreme caution and watch out for other drivers around blind corners as well as potholes and other adverse road conditions.


It should also be noted that only Commercial First Class Insurance provides full coverage on rental cars ( as opposed to limited personal or third party only insurance ). Most international car rental agencies will offer this insurance ( some only for those with a valid international driver’s license ) while local companies may or may not.


You may wish to request a copy of their insurance policy and ensure that it states For Commercial Use. Regardless, inspect rental vehicles before rental and drive with caution, particularly as traffic in Thailand can be quite confusing, especially the habit of Thai motorcycles drivers to drive on the wrong side of the road.


By Foot:

If you wish to visit remote hill-tribe villages, the only way to get to many is on foot. It is best to hire the services of a knowledgeable guide who is familiar with the local weather, terrain, and language rather than try to set out into the wilderness on your own.


By Bus, Songthaew, and Motorbike Taxi:

Once in Mae Hong Son there are local busses, songtaews, and motorbike taxis for trips between provincial towns and to attractions outside those towns.


If you wish to check out a nearby hot spring or waterfall, a local bus or songtaews going in that direction will not charge more than 10 or 20 Baht per passenger to get you there, while motorbikes, which are the only method of getting to many attractions, will charge you several hundred Baht for the convenience of guaranteeing you a ride back.
