5 Days Mae Hong Sorn

Introduction

Mae Hong Sorn is one of the northern provinces of Thailand, on the country’s western border. Neighbor country is Myanmar to the west. Mae Hong Son’s nickname is “the city of three mists” because it is often covered with mist. The population in the province consists of hill tribes. The Karen are a mix of closely related tribes. This group’s women are recognized by the large brass rings they wear around their necks. The province is famous for his 1,864 curves. Doi Inthanon is the highest mountain of Thailand and it is located at the south of the province. The small city of Pai became famous after a romantic Thai movie.
The roads in Mae Hong Sorn are mostly easy to ride. Some parts might be a bit harder than others but all are practicables for real bikers. You must be capable to handle a motorbike over 500cc and do not except to learn how to ride it during the road trip. We plan to ride around 150 and 280 km’s per day which leaves plenty of time for relaxing, eating and sightseeing..

Itinerary

I’m not too comfortable on motorcycle, but being the passenger of my husband allowed me to quietly enjoy the fantastic landscapes. I wanna do it again! The route through mountains was exotic, the local cuisine was spicy and all in subtle flavors. Spending night in hotels in the middle of tea fields was beyond our expectations.
