Pai is an ever-popular destination in Mae Hong Son province, yet it still retains a small-town charm. Pai is the most accessible town in Mae Hong Son province from Chiang Mai and has many great food and accommodation options.

Pai Tours

Pai Night Market

Open every night, the Pai night markets are a hive of street food and live music venues. When choosing your accommodation you need to decide whether you will stay in the heart of the action, within easy walking distance, or outside town in a peaceful resort with views of rice fields. Most outlying hotels have a shuttle service with on-demand transfers into town and schedule pickup times & locations.

Nearby Attractions

While it is easy to explore the center of town on foot, there are also many attractions just outside of town within the same valley.
