Mae Hong Son, Ban Rak
127 Moo-6. (Ask in the main square at town, is very close)
It is on the border with Myanmar, the village of Ban Rak Thai, in the province of Mae Hong Son. It has the peculiarity that it is a settlement of Chinese refugees for more than 50 years, it is in a beautiful valley surrounded by hills with tea crops. It is 44 km north from Mae Hong Son, and the road to it goes through mountains covered with jungle and valleys with rice fields. Turistically the area has no waste, there are many ethnic tribes, waterfalls, caves, and of course the road from PAi to Mae Hong Son which is a claim in itself, there are 762 curves they have them! You can rent a scooter in Pai or MAe Hong Son to know the surroundings, if you are a brave you can get to Ban Krai Thai in one, but better by taxi, or tuk tuk.
