I really love the loops and bends on this super riding circuit. I have done this about 5-6 times and can never get enough of it. The Cave Lodge, Karen Long neck tribals, Doi Inthanon are all super spice to the loop. And of course ... the beauty of Pai - is so good - must spend a day there... More

It was interesting to read the other reviews. I didn't ride a motorcycle in. ...I didn't fly. ...I drove from Chiang Mai. It was a long tedious trip with million curves. There is little to do or see here.

I already live in Northern Thailand for a long time,but the Mae Hong Son loop is after driven it many time's still amazing! In every season it's different! I always take the short cut,go from Chomtong to Doi Inthanon,highest mountain of Thailand, after the visit at the mountain, and before the gate, I go right to Mae Chaam.Very nice steep... More

A nice place to visit. Your vacation in this city will complete a entertainment and learning different culture. Different types of tribal people will be like a colorful scenario to you. If you travel by air from Chiang Mai to Mae Hong Son, you can't believe how adventurous to you. Small flights fly over the hills upto the sky. The... More

A long ride from Chiang Mai to Pai & Mae Hong Son. Windy uphill & downhill through the journey. It was a cooling and fairly wet journey travelling in the rainy season. The amazing greenery of the forest, paid fields, grass, etc (anything that is supposed to be green was truly fresh & healthy vibrant green!). The air was great... More

You can get to Mae Hong Son in the car, 6-8 hours drive from Chiang Mai, or you can fly for 20 minutes to special cheap rates from Chiang Mai. Mae Hong Son town is probably the place you stay and then take tours out there. Around the lake, there are several Geust Houses and cozy restaurants, and then there's... More

I guess that says it all... The roads are pretty good, particularly between Mae Hong Son and Chiang Mai. A bit rough between Pai and Chiang Mai and beware of the mini vans on this later stretch as clearly sticking to their own side of the road is asking too much! Love the sites on the way and the beautiful... More

We only did a part of the loop (Pai to Mae Hong Son) on 125ccm bikes but it wasa great experience anyway and we'd surely done the whole loop if we had little bit more time. The road conditions are generally very good even if you take the occational detour on smaller side roads and if you have some experience... More

We did this loop on three days but you can easily do it on two days if you are used to drive big bikes. On scooter it will take more time. We drived first day 300km from chiang mai to mae hong son. It took about 7 hours without rush and with couple of view on the way. Second day... More

The MHS loop is for motorcyclists that know how to ride, not for 1st timers who think that they can. My wife & I are both regular riders of big bikes & this was the highlight of our trip! We took 6 days and could have spent a lot longer there too :) Left Chiang Mai down to Doi Inthanon,... More
