Mae Hong Son Province is one of the northern provinces of Thailand, on the country’s western border. Neighboring provinces are Shan State of Myanmar,

Mae Hong Son’s nickname is “the city of three mists”. It is hemmed in by the high mountain ranges of the Shan Hills and is the most mountainous province in Thailand. The province is often covered with mist. Mae Hong Son town was originally established in the early 19th century as an elephant training camp as ordered by the then King of Chiang Mai.

How to Get Around

Mae Hong Son can be reached by car or bus from Chiang Mai by the Mae Hong Son loop. The town is also serviced by the Mae Hong Son Airport. It is also home to the only commercial Diesel power station in Thailand. The station has only a very small capacity of 4.40 MW (4,400 kW). It seems like it was placed here because of the remote location of the town.
