(3.2/5 based on 1,300+ reviews for top 20 attractions)
Things to do: nature, sightseeing, religious sites

City of Three Mists

A town of 7,000 in northern Thailand, Mae Hong Son remains somewhat under the mainstream tourist radar, which has allowed it to maintain a traditional Thai atmosphere. Despite its fairly remote location, Mae Hong Son caters to visitors with a decent tourism infrastructure, including accommodations and tours. During the popular cool season between November and February, the city is at its most picturesque--though do come prepared for quite cold temperatures. The nearby scenic mountains top many Mae Hong Son itineraries. With our international travel planner, Thailand vacations can be built around trips to Mae Hong Son and other destinations in Thailand.

Where to stay

Though Mae Hong Son generally lacks accommodations that are anything other than functional, you can expect to find acceptable lodgings here--especially if you're a budget-conscious backpacker. These mostly come in the form of clean, no-frills rooms in guesthouses or hostels. Be prepared for prices to fluctuate, rising during the popular season (between November and January). If you're able and willing to spend a little more, explore the more upscale midrange options on the outskirts of the town center.
