Mae Hong Son is a fascinating province of Burmese and Lanna style
temples, hot springs, hill tribe villages, trekking, rafting, national parks,
and even an annual reggae festival. In addition to a charming capital in Mae
Hong Son town, the town of Pai is also a traveler favorite.
Many people come to Mae Hong Son and Pai to experience the natural beauty of
northern Thailand or witness one of the many festivals that are celebrated in
Mae Hong Son.
Mae Hong Son is one of the most forested provinces in the nation, appealing to
those who like their weather cooler and their terrain a little more mountainous.
It is one of the only places in the country that can reach 0 degrees Celsius
during the cold season evenings, so it is advisable to come armed with some
items of warmer clothing during November-January. The cooler temperatures are
one of the reasons for the aforementioned mists, which appear throughout the
year, most often in the early morning.
