In continuation of my Mae Hong Son motorbike journey I am keen to share the next parts of my experience with you. After a long and thoroughly deserved sleep we awoke to explore the sleepy town of Pai.
The town of Pai is know to have a laid back vibe, filled with a mixture of locals, expats and foreign tourists. It has a very unique and almost hippie atmosphere to the place. To put it plainly, it’s my favourite place in Thailand!
Part 2 of our journey focused on finding the BEST places of interest in the surrounding area. My 4 favourites include; Pai Canyon (For sunrise/sunset), Big Buddha (For sunrise/sunset), Bamboo Bridge, Pai Night Market and Sai Ngam Hot Springs. However there are a few more noteworthy mentions as follows:
- Yun Lai View point (Can have a coffee here with a beautiful view)
- Memorial Bridge
- Pam Bok Waterfall
- Santichon Village
During our stay we were only able to visit a few of these places but these are where I would advise offer the most value.
Once we had enjoyed what Pai had to offer it was time to rest before the big day ahead; Journey to the town of Mae Hong Son!
In summary, if you are thinking of visiting Pai, enjoy waterfalls (there are lots of decent ones), want to relax, enjoy beautiful viewpoints then this is the town for you. Also, it’s worth noting that, if you have never driven a scooter or motorbike before, Pai is the perfect place to begin. Along with the fact that taxis are more pricey, riding a scooter adds an extra sense of freedom to your Pai experience.
