Ban Ja Bo Mae Hong Son
The small mountain village of Ban Jabo is located about sixty kilometers from Mae Hong Son and a little less from the Pai. This site in Mae Hong Son province is still relatively unknown to foreign tourists but very popular with Thais who come in large numbers during the so-called cold season (November to March), especially on weekends and public holidays.

The village is populated by the Lahu hilltribe and sits on the crest of a mountain range overlooking a amazing landscapene, o of the most spectacular in the region. You will find several restaurants with terrace on stilts to enjoy the view while eating for cheap, the most famous is probably Guay Tiaew Hoy Ka Ban Jabo which only offers noodle soups.

Practical information about Ban Jabo

But to make the most of the setting, the atmosphere of the village and the view, the best thing is to spend the night in Ban Jabo village. There are several homestays, camp grounds and very simple accomodation most of which are not on the online booking platforms and you will therefore have to be booked by phone (be careful, few speak English) or via their Facebook pages (which I put on the reservation link on the website for each of them). Even if I did not have the opportunity to test any, I took the time to locate some on the spot and to list here some homestays in Ban Jabo but obviously cannot be exhaustive. You will sleep most of the time like the locals in very basic conditions in rooms with woven bamboo partitions or in tents but that's part of the experience. And if you are lucky you will wake up facing a sea of ??mist. This is what made the reputation of Ban Jabo.

How to get to Ban Jabo ?

There is, to my knowledge, no public transport to come to Ban Jabo which is about 1.5 hours drive from both Mae Hong Son and Pai.
