Going on the long long winding road along the western border Thailand – Myanmar (Burma). We called 3 Mae are Mae Hong Son, Mae Sariang and Mae Sot. This route from Chiang Mai to Mae Sot 7 days. (Flexible)

I have been travel this route many time during have no flight from Chiang Mai to Mae Hong Son. But they have Nok Air fly from Mae Sot to Bangkok. That’s why Mae Sot is last stop and we drop off there. (Air Asia also come to operate flight to Mae Sot and share market later.)

Ok, everything start from Chiang Mai and then go to Pai for 1 night. Next day, we move to Mae Hong Son for 2 nights and going down to Mae Sariang for 2 nights and last night at Mae Sot.

This trip was concept form my client who call in and wake me up. He and family (2 adults and 3 kids) want to go Mae Hong Son in this morning. He planed to visit Pai, Mae Hong Son, Mae Sariang and drop off and finish at Mae Sot.

I confirmed and I just have 2 hours to prepare everything, my car, luggage and pick up them. But I thought I’m lucky, I have nothing to do this week. I wanna go to Mae Sot, too.

Pai and Soppong

After I pick them up and drive to Pai. We stop for awhile along the way. Later, drop off and check-in at hotel in Pai. While we have a free time he show me the trip planner to Mae Sot and next day take a flight to Bangkok.

We stay in Pai for 2 nights to enjoy day tour around the town and seeing night life. And next day we move to visit hill tribe village in Soppong for homestay 1 night with Shan at Mae Lana. Oh, we had 4 Mae.

Mae Hong Son

He booked to stay in Mae Hong Son 2 nights but when they arrived and have a look the resort. They need add to stay here 2 more nights but they can not change schedule flight.

Mae Sariang

We keep going and following on planed to stay last night in Mae Sariang, a small town and many wooden house. The hotel by the river and perfect place to stay. You will love this town.

Mae Sot

Last day drive along the border to Mae Sot. The road is a beautiful mountains and seeing the countryside.

They will stay another 1 night for wait early flight to Bangkok and transit to Phuket. I drop them at hotel and say goodbye with a good memories for go along 7 days.

I have to drive back Chiang Mai on the main highway for 7 hours. Perhaps, looking for restaurant or motel for tonight here, it’s not too bad. In case for safety and I have a free time to survey and up to date information this city for next trip.
