Private transfer route 1095

Last Updated on July 10, 2024

A long, winding road

A secondary highway number 1095 will transfer to Mae Hong Son in about 6 hours through Pai. It is the shortest and most popular route, but it has a lot of twists and turns.

Divide into 2 sections

The first section, from Chiang Mai to Pai, takes about 3 hours and has the most twists and turns. The roads are on steep terrain for the next 30 minutes on Route 1095 until you reach Pai.

The second section took another three hours. The first hour will be spent ascending to the Kiew Lom viewpoint and then descending to Soppong [Pang Mapha]. Lod Cave can be visited in 1:30 hours if you plan ahead.

Continue to Mae Hong Son, where the route climbs and descends, passing through a viewpoint and Fish Cave before reaching town in 20 minutes. We will arrive in the evening and drop you off at the hotel.

At 8 a.m., the transfer service from/to Chiang Mai-Mae Hong Son should begin.

A chance to see enroute

Tourists know that the road between Mae Ma Lai (Chiang Mai) and Pai has the most turns in Thailand. You may feel dizzy, which will cause you to be late.

However, we had the opportunity to see a gorgeous hilly landscape, a charming coffee shop, mouthwatering eateries, and a stop to see attractions and colorful hill tribe people.

The first section will be the section with the highest number of curves on this route, driving through Huai Nam Dang National Park. So, there are rest areas and beautiful mountain views along the way.

When you hungry

When we start entering the Pai City area, the restaurants and cafes are lined up along both sides from Ta-Pai Memorial Bridge to town.

Pai: Baan Benjarong Restaurant is the taste of royal Thai cuisine.


Pai is well-known and popular among young backpackers, as are affordable guesthouses in the downtown and Walking Street areas. Around the Pai, though, there were also high-end rooms with full services.

Motorbikes make it easy to get to restaurants and tourist destinations throughout the city. The lovely scenery and friendly atmosphere will make you feel at ease.

If you want to spend a few nights in Pai, make sure you plan ahead. You can ask me for more information about Pai. Although I don’t have much detail on the website yet,

Sop Pong: There are several secret restaurants and guesthouses in Soppong, a small district with approximately 70 caverns. Baan Kaew Mora Restaurant has a good taste and is in a nice place by the small creek.

Sweet & Salty, a restaurant in Pen Cave Homestay that serves organic food and homegrown coffee, is another option near Lod Cave.
