Travel Thailand, Mae Hong Son

Thailand's second northernmost provincial city, is sheltered by several high mountains and enjoys a cool climate almost all year round. In the past, the town was isolated from the outside world for lack of good transportation and communications. All that is changed now of course, as Thai Airways has frequent flights into Mae Hong Son. A word of caution though. It has been reported in the local press that the national airline is considering discontinuing these flights. This will leave a local carrier to take up the slack.
 
Mae Hong Son is administratively divided into 6 Amphoes (counties) and 1 King Amphoe.  The province covers an area of 12,681 square kilometres.  Mae Hong Son can be reached from Chiang Mai either by Highway No. 108 via Mae Sa Riang, for the distance of 349 kilometres. or Highway No. 1095 via Pai which shortens the distance to some 274 kilometres. As the province is bordered by Myanmar to the North and West, a strong Burmese influence can be seen in the provincial capital's temples and buildings.

Mae Hong Son Attractions:

In the city
Wat Phralhat Doi Kong Mu
is a Burmese - style temple which dominates the provincial capital. Constructed by Phraya Singhanatracha, the first King of Mae Hong Son, the hilltop temple affords a wonderful view of the capital and surrounding mountains and valleys.
 


Wat Chong Klang and Wat Chong Kham These two monasteries share the same compound. A part from the glass paintings depicting Buddhism and simply life style of the villagers which draw much attention from visitors, there are over 30 wood carving dolls taken from Myanmar during the past century.

Wat Hua Wiang contains the image of Phra Chao Pha Ra La Kheng a replica of the one in Myanmar.

Wat Kam Ko Another name of this temple is Wat Dok Bun Nak which is shady and pleasant having ancient scriptures written in the ancient local dialect informing the history of Thai Yai people.

Wat Phra Non contains a huge Burmese - style reclining Buddha image some 12 meters long. The temple also houses ashes of Mae Hong Son kings. Two massive stone lions guard the temple staircase. More
