Every two years David and I travel to Thailand to visit our family in Bangkok. We always combine the trip with visits to other parts of Thailand or other countries near Southeast Asia. Last year (2015) we made a road trip with our family in Chiangmai and Mae Hong Son Provinces in northern Thailand.
Six of us (my parents, brother Krich, sister Ying, David, and I) flew from Bangkok to Chiangmai. We rented a van with a driver from a local tour company in Chiangmai and went on a 4-day, 3-night trip Mae Hong Son Loop via Chiangmai-Pai-Mae Hong Son-Mae Sariang. Mae Hong Son was one of the areas of Thailand to which I haven’t been before. It was a fun and memorable trip with the family. Read about our road trip in three parts below.
