Ban Rak Thai village
It will be an ideal place for those who really want to escape from noisy and modern life in cities. In order to reach the site, you have to take a direct flight to Chiang Mai and then get a car to Mae Hong Son province. The travel time is about 5 to 6 hours.
Or you can fly to the province which can take only 30 minutes. Ban Rak Thai is about 40 kilometers from Mae Hong Son, so it is possible to reach the destination by car or taxi.
Ban Rak Thai village is very special with houses in Chinese style
The village is quite isolated with more than 1,000 Chinese people living there. That’s why Chinese are frequently spoken in the community. Just a small part of the youth can speak Thai language. About 1,776 meters from sea level, the site will delight you by its picturesqueness of the lovely houses and the endless tea fields.
What makes the spot interesting is that the house was built right on the field, making it become a wonderful attraction you have to come once in your life time.
Walking along the trail on the tea field and joining in picking up tea leaves will leave you awesome impressions. Then, come to some famous tea shops in Chinese style to award yourself by a hot cup of tea after doing sightseeing and photo takings. Before making a leave, remember to buy some tea bags or lovely gifts for your friends.
Doi Kat Phee hill
Doi Kat Phee used to be unknown but is increasingly becoming one of the most popular choices of those who love camping and want to get close to nature.
No word can describe the beauty of Doi Kat Phee hill
The best time to come is between November and January because the weather during the time is really nice, giving you favorable conditions to explore everything in the spot.

Doi Loung Chiang Dao and Doi Hau Singh Hill
