If you’re a nature-lover, or something like that, perhaps you will want to taste the feeling of a hot spring in the middle of nature. Muang Phaeng Hot Spring is a good example. It isn’t surrounded with concrete walls or bathing rooms like many other hot springs, but it’s located in the middle of woodland, totally natural. Sounds nice, doesn’t it?

If you’re a shopping lover, you’re suggested to go to Pai Walking Street, which is a long-story and popular shopping district. Shop for food, drink, souvenirs, and many other things as much as you like.

If you want to track some lifestyles or livings in the province, then you should visit an ethnic village, for examples, The Microwave Mhong Village, Ban Rak Thai etc. By going, you will have a chance of talking to those ethnic villagers, which are friendly, and see how they live. These villagers have been living in Mae Hong Son for many decades. Their ancestors evacuated into Thailand somehow.
