Unless you plan to drive some 924 kilometres from Bangkok, the fastest way to get to Mae Hong Son is by flying in, via Chiang Mai. Other options include catching a train from Bangkok’s Hua Lamphong or hopping on a long-distant bus at Bangkok’s Northern Bus Terminal (Mo Chit), then transfer to a mini-bus once you arrive in Chiang Mai. Whichever option you choose, Chiang Mai will be your transfer point.

From Chiang Mai, there are two routes to get to Mae Hong Son: Route 108 passes through Mae Sariang and takes slightly longer than Route 1095, which passes through Pai. Both routes cut across high mountain ridges and are marked by nearly 2,000 sharp turns. Most travellers get car-sick at some point along these two routes, so it’s a good idea to pop a motion-sickness pill at the beginning of the journey.
