Mae Hong Son in Northern Thailand is an ‘escape to’ destination, hemmed in by the high mountain ranges of the Shan Hills to form Thailand’s most mountainous province. For those with an in-depth knowledge of Thailand, it is known as a place that offers unparalleled peace and quiet among breathtaking panoramic landscapes. Lovingly referred to as the ‘Land Below The Mist’, it stirs emotive images that travelers must see for themselves.
Covered in a wispy mist for much of the year owing to its rugged terrain, Mae Hong Son is also home to the charming Zutongpae Bridge, a wooden walkway that spans emerald green rice paddies and is a pathway of good fortune according to local belief. Farmers from nearby villages believe that crossing the bridge will bring success into their lives. Travelers can also visit and discover the daily endeavors of the Thai Yai people who reside along the northern border with Burma.
