Nestled in northern Thailand, the mountainous province of Mae Hong Son boasts effusive green attractions and bountiful natural spectacles, from splendid caves to endless rice fields and a striking canyon.

Those seeking a tranquil sanctuary enclosed by spectacular mountains, glistening rivers and bounteous natural landscape will find the perfect hideout in Mae Hong Son. This mountainous province in northern Thailand exudes a mellow and relaxed milieu. It’s the perfect vibe to learn about the local culture and immerse in thrilling outdoor activities, without the rush of people and bustling crowd.

Eat Vacation could attest that Mae Hong Son isn’t short of places to explore and things to do. However, one of the most impressive attraction has to be Lod Cave, one of Thailand’s most acclaimed limestone cave system that spans around 600 meters. One could walk and float down the river through the cave to witness imposing stalactites and stalagmites that date back to the Stone Age, with one single limestone which towers over 20 meters up.

Su Tong Pae Bridge at Mae Hong Son
In 2012, local Villagers teamed up to build a bridge that connected the village with Tham Poo Sa Ma Temple, as an offering to the monks so that they could easliy traverse the flooded rice paddies each morning on their walks to receive alms

Head over to Su Tong Pae Bridge, the country’s longest bamboo bridge that stretches over 10km of lavish rice paddies and spectacular views. Eat Vacation recommends coming at around 6am to see the monks traverse over it and receive alms. Sunset offers an ethereal view too, complete with the buzzing of dragonfly swarms.

Although, the best sunset spot is still at Pai Canyon, which features 360 degrees of breathtaking views of Pai valley. The red sandstone landscape and otherworldly trail that leads to a viewpoint with a 50-meter drop will doubtless sweep anyone off their feet. If one explored downtown Pai and ambled down Pai Walking Street, they’d find a lively market scene teeming with scrumptious local delicacies, unique craft shops and funky bars.

If one place had left an indelible impression, it’d be the rustic Sai Ngam Hot Spring that snuggles amid a luscious wildlife sanctuary not far from Pai. Eat Vacation was delighted by the charming ambiance of the shaded terrace pools lined with sylvan river rocks and warm spring water. Indeed, it’s the perfect place to wind down and let loose. Also in Pai, one could find The Countryside Resort. Featuring eco-huts, a spectacular view of rice paddies and overlooking the Pai River, this hotel provides hearty meals, invigorating Thai massage and relaxing hammocks.

Another excellent accommodation that Eat Vacation would recommend is Pai Village Boutique Resort & Farm, which boasts luxurious bamboo huts in downtown Pai. Settled in the heart of the town and within walking distance from, Pai Walking Street, the resort manages to create a secluded atmosphere with its tranquil cottages and lush garden scene. Mae Hong Son is truly a magnificent province with a range of natural wonders to traverse. What are you waiting for? Pack your bags and catch the next flight to this peaceful Thai province!
