Mae Hong Son is a charming town nestled in the mountains close to the Myanmar border. The town is located on a picturesque lake where you can watch locals practice Tai Chi and mist lingers in the morning. Mae Hong Son is fairly small; however, it still has a good collection of exciting things to see and do. Here are the top things to do while visiting this diverse and vibrant town.

* Wat Phra That Doi Kong Mu - Located on a hill overlooking the town is Mae Hong Son’s most iconic landmark, the revered Wat Phra That Doi Kong Mu. You do need to climb some steps to this Shan-style temple and are rewarded with breathtaking views of Mae Hong Son, as well as the mountains beyond, once the fog lifts. The temple is comprised of two chedis and a stunning golden Buddha. Continue around the back of the temple for vistas over the Mae Hong Son mountains and the chance to do some souvenir shopping at the local market or indulge in a fresh hill tribe coffee at the small cafe.

* Wat Chong Kham - Wat Chong Kham is located next to Jong Kham Lake and is particularly impressive when it lights up the lake at night. The temple itself is stunningly beautiful, as is the large Buddha image, gold temple pillars and the 100-year-old Jataka paintings. The temple has a small museum with 150-year-old Burmese wooden dolls that show gruesome aspects of the wheel of life. The temple also has several areas that restrict women from entering, which is common for Burmese Shan temples.
