What to see in Mae Hong Son

In Mae Hong Son, tourists mainly visit the temples in town and the mountains (I recommend Ban Jabo) and rice fields of the province. From Wat Phra That Doi Kong Mu perched on its hill, we have a beautiful view of the city of Mae Hong Son and its valley often plunged in mist in the morning. In the city, it is especially the lake and Wat Jong Kham and Wat Jong Klang temples magnificently illuminated at nightfall and where a night market is held in the evening that you should not miss but I also like Wat Phra Non and the superb bronze Buddha at Wat Hua Wiang. I also invite you to travel in the mountains or go to the Su Thong Pae bamboo bridge but for that, it will be better to have your own means of transport.

Su Thong Pae bamboo bridge

ศาลาซูตองเป้
My opinion :
This charming little bamboo bridge a few kilometers outside Mae Hong Son was bulit by locals in a pretty valley of rice fields. It connects the village to the temple which is at the top of the hill. A place with not many tourists where several times a year are held Buddhist ceremonies.

Lod Cave

ถ้ำน้ำลอด
My opinion :
This big system of caves is one of the must visits to do from Pai or Mae Hong Son in Northern Thailand. Besides the magnificent and impressive caves, it is the bamboo rafting part on their interior river which makes it a very nice and fun little adventure.

Walking Street

ถนนคนเดิน
My opinion :
The Walking Streets in Thailand are night markets that take place a few evenings a week or sometimes every evening in one or several streets that become pedestrianized for the occasion. They are often pleasant places to eat local street food. Mae Hong Son Walking Street in addition is in a superb setting !
