Best place to visit, is around Mae Hong Son, spectacular scenery, lovely people, mainly hill tribe people.

Ban Rak Thai, north of MHS, tea village, fish caves, just north of MHS.

Go five  ks south of MHS, turn left, the old elephant trail to Chiang Mai, about 90 ks, quite a few hill tribe villages along the way.

We lived in Nong Kao Klang, 39 ks from MHS, 9 years ago, so different to the modern world, no phones, no electric, no night time light, go outside at midnight, peace and quiet, no noise/ light, just silence, fantastic.
