Mae Hong Son
Mae Hong Son is known as “the city of three mists” due to its high mountain ranges, which are covered with mist throughout the year. The scenic views of the forest on the mountain ranges are beautifully known as Thailand’s Switzerland.
The first destination to visit is Pang Ung, one of the Royal Initiative projects by HM King Bhumiphol and HM Queen Sirikit; developed to improve the quality of the life and agriculture on the highland. Its large reservoir is surrounded by beauty, with abundant herbs and stunning flowers.
Namtok Mae Surin National Park
Namtok Mae Surin National Park is another popular place to visit because of its stunning landscapes, mountains, cliffs, caves and waterfalls. Namtok Mae Surin also known as Mae Surin Waterfall, is located among the mountains and nature and is one of the highest waterfalls in the country.
Doi Mae Ho
When visiting Mae Hong Son between the months of November and December, do not miss the chance to see the sunflower fields at Doi Mae Ho, which bloom and exquisitely paint the mountains yellow. Along the way, there are also hill tribe villages where visitors can meet people from the hill tribe and marvel at their beautiful homegrown plants.
If visitors wish to see the original lifestyle of the hill tribe, they can take a boat ride along Pai River to Baan Naam Peng Din; the biggest and oldest hill tribe community in Thailand. See the authentic sights of the village, chat with the locals and take advantage of photo opportunities with them. Souvenirs are also on offer and waiting to be purchased.
