To go to Mae Hong Son ?

Mae Hong Son has an airport. Currently, only Nok Air offers flights from Chiang Mai (they resumed the route in October 2022 but there are not flights every day), they also offer flights from Bangkok (Don Muang airport) in association with Thai Airways. Most people get to Mae Hong Son by passenger minivan from the Chiang Mai Arcade Bus Terminal (and generally stop a few days in Pai first). Local buses to mae Hong Son also depart from this bus terminal but they are quite old and slow. Minivan departures are quite frequent and the journey takes 6 hours in the most winding mountain road in Thailand. If you are car sick, take your precautions and possibly prefer the local bus which is certainly slower but which makes you less sick. From Bangkok, there are a few direct buses to Mae Hong Son per day departing from Mochit Terminal. The journey takes 16 hours. By train, you can go to Chiang Mai and then take a bus or van. Choosing a night train to Chiang Mai< /a> can be a good option to optimize your travel time.
