Mae Hong Son,
Thailand's second northernmost province, is sheltered by several high mountains and enjoys a cool climate almost all year round. Mae Hong Son is located 924 kilometers from Bangkok and can be reached from Chiang Mai either by Highway No.108 via Mae Sariang, 349 kilometers, or Highway No.1095 via Pai Introduction which shortens the distance to some 245 kilometers. Mae Hong Son is bordered by the Union of Myanmar (Burma) to the north and the west, and a strong Burmese influence can be seen in the province's temples and buildings. The population of Mae Hong Son include Thai Yai (or Shan) and various hilltribes such as Karen, Hmong, Lahu, Lua and Lisu, scattering in the districts. Mae Hong Son covers an area of 12,681 square kilometers and is administratively divided into 7 districts (Amphoe) namely : Muang, Pai, Khun Yuam, Mae La Noi, Mae Sariang, Sop Moei and Pang Mapha.

Wild-Sunflower Field, Doi Mae U-Kho
covers a large mountainous area in Tambon Mae U-Kho, some 26 Kilometers from the district. The wild-sunflowers called in Thai "Bua Tong" are in full bloom during November which make the hills and surrounding areas look like plated with gold.
Wat Phra That Doi Kong Mu
Numerous Burmese-style temples can be seen. These include the hilltop Wat Phra That Doi Kong Mu which dominates the provincial city. Constructed by Phraya Singhanat- racha, the first King of Mae Hong Son, the hilltop temple affords a wonderful view of the city and surrounding mountains and valleys.

The area, stretching out as far as Amphoe Mae Taeng, Chiang Mai, is planted with flowers and trees of cold weather zone which contribute to its scenic landscape. It is accessible by travelling along the Highway No.1095 from Amphoe Pai to the east about 60 kilometers and taking a left turn for another 6 kilometers.
Nam Tok Mae Surin National Park
is situated another 11 kilometers away from Doi Mae U-Kho. Mae Surin Waterfall is 80 meters high and can be seen from the view point at the national park office. The forest here still maintains its natural abundance. Visitors are required to carry their own tents for an overnight stay. Its peak season falls in November to April.

Wat Chong Klang and Wat Chong Kham
These two monasteries share the same compound. Apart from the glass paintings depicting Buddhism and simple lifestyle of the villagers which draw much attention from visitors, there are over 30 wood carving dolls taken from Myanmar about the past century.
