Travel to Pai and Pang Aung Mae Hong Son Province Completely without a Private Car
Although, Pai is crowden of tourists, it is the main destination in the wintter for most tourists. Surely, when tourists increase mor and more, all entrepreneurs also increase more and more. In the past, traveling to Pai may have problems for many people, especially salary man who doesn’t have private cars yet. Someone has it, but they are not good enough at driving about 1864 carves. Nowadays, traveling to Pai is very easier than you think.
However, traveling to Pai is not the main article that I will mention because I have written in the article of Chiang Mai – Pai already. This occasion, I will mention about how we go around Pai when we arrived. It has to be worthwhile for a long trip.
First of all, roam around Pai
The question is how we will travel without a private car. Indeed, the private car is not necessary for traveling in Pai since Pai is a very small city. Presently, all roads are connected. Every tourist attraction has guideposts sporadically, so motorcycle is the most suitable vehicle for traveling in Pai. Furthermore, don’t forget that there is lots of people flow in pai during the festivals. Therefore, traffic jam is a certain problem. Another problem is many tourists scramble to eat and tour. I am not sure that you visit Pai for what if you stay in the car for getting the cool air.
The use of a motorcycle help you travel to everywhere in Pai easier. In addition, you can touch the Pai’s weather extremely, and reach the destination before others. That means the opportunity that you have more time to go other places all around Pai such as Pang Aung and Ban Rak Thai.
Where can you rent a motorcycle? The receptionist in your accommodation will arrange for you. The cost is about 140-200 baht a day that depends on the cost of each place.
A motorcycle can go to everywhere in Pai. Yun Lai viewpoint is a place that is excepted because you must use the services of local people. The first place that you should go after finished arrangement of your belongings is Memorial Bride of Pai. In my opinion, it is the farthest place that I went. Then go to Pong Nam Ron Ta Pai where its entrance is next to the bride around 100 meters. After that, you should roam others places such as Mae Yen Relic, Kong Land, Coffee Inlove and Mho Pang waterfall. At night, traipse on the Pai walking street. Next, have breakfast at Santisukchon village. Then visit Nam Hu Temple. That means you can plan yourself to go various places. However, it depends on the time of arrival in Pai or amount of day that you stay in Pai.
Continue to Pang Aung and Ban Rak Thai
If you go to Pai, and you don’t interest in visiting anywhere, let you eat food and travel in Pai satisfyingly. It is up to you. Anywise, I will mention that when you tour around Pai, you should not let the time wastefully. Because of only one day, you can tour Mae Hong Sorn, Pang Aung and Ban Rak Thai. The places that I mentioned above are the main places, but there are many places to visit on the way.
You don’t need to worry about the travellers who have private cars because they drive to everywhere happily. What about you? You don’t have a private car, aren’t you? Where would you like to go ahead? In fact, you can go everywhere as whoever goes, but it is more prefect and comfortable. Furthermore, it is cheaper. The method that mentioned is buying Pang Aung Tour.
The use of the tour service is the best way for you who don’t have a private car. There are two advantages of buying Pang Aung Tour. First, you can go everywhere without tiredness from driving. Second, you don’t need to plan that you have to go that place before or after. Where do you want to stop for meals? When will you go back? Just you buy this tour; they will arrange everything until the trip finish.
The tour will pick you up at your accommodation. Then take you visit on the Program. There are Pang Aung, Ban Rak Thai, Pang Tong Palace, Pha Sua Waterfall, Phu Klon, Su Tong Pe Bridge, Long Neck Kareng House, Doi Kong Mu Relic, Pla Cave and Kiew Lom Viewpoint.Finally, they will take you back your accommodation on the time that specified.
I have ever tried every method- namely driving by myself, driving by friends and buying a tour. I can’t confirm that which one is better because each trip has different variables. However, buying the tour is the most worthwhile way for a traveler who doesn’t has a private car.
If you have a question, sometimes the tour doesn’t take you to somewhere as the program specified. You should ask the travelers who drive themselves that how many places they can go. They can go as you go, right? Are they tired of driving? How much do they pay for petrol? Certainly, when we talk about worthiness and the waste, we cannot find out the conclusion because each person has different variables. The breakeven is not the answer. In fact, the worthiness is the answer that you know well.
Where can you buy the tour? The answer is Pai walking street. There is lots of tour that you can choose yourself. The cost of the tour is around 700 baht per person. If you can bargain well, you can get 500 baht per person. Another way, you can contact your accommodation directly. It is also easy.
When you knew both the methods to go and all tourist attractions, I don’t have anything to tell you anymore. Anything else depends on your decision that you want to visit the real places, or you just click the like of other people’s pictures on Internet.
