To go to Mae Hong Son ?

Mae Hong Son has its own airport but it is not very active. Especially since April 19, 2023, the date when which Nok Air, the only airline still offering flights to Mae Hong Son, decided to suspend the line due to the lack of passengers. So you non can only get to Mae Hong Son is by road transport: passenger minivan or bus from the Chiang Mai Arcade Bus Terminal, but the local buses for this connection are quite old and slow on the climbs. Minivan departures are frequent and the journey on the most twisty mountain road in Thailand takes 6 hours. If you are car sick, take your precautions and possibly prefer the local bus which is certainly slower but makes you less sick. From Bangkok, from Mochit Bus Terminal, there are a few direct buses to Mae Hong Son per day. The journey takes 16 hours. By train, you can go to Chiang Mai and then take a bus or passenger van. Choosing a night train to Chiang Mai< /a> can be a good option to optimize your travel time.
