    Was considering staying at Mae Sariang whilst driving Mae Hong Son loop. Seeking information from anyone who has taken the Mae Sariang day trip to Mae Sam Laeb and the Salween River... is it worthwhile? if so who did you arrange thru and approx cost?
    Many thanks for any help

    You don't need to pay anyone to take you to Sam Lab, you can drive yourself - though the last kilometre needs a sturdy 4WD. I drove there in a small Honda sedan a couple of years ago. Parked at the viewpoint (if you drive, you'll know what I mean), and walked the rest.

    Go look at this map and also this other map .

    If you want to go to Tha Ta Fang village, you can hire a boatman at Sam Laeb.

    Lovely countryside. Well worth the drive.

    Yup,well worth the trip.The scenery is great and a trip on the Salween River the icing.Did a trip a few years back but I can't remember the price.I'm sure any guesthouse in Mae Sariang could organise it for you.

    Funny, we've a researcher in Mae Sariang at the moment -- he did a tour of every single karaoke bar in town the night before last -- said it has an amazing number of bars for such a small town. Depending on the blurriness of the pics, we might make it into a story on the site.

    As per the others the trip to Mae Sam Laeb is great and well worth doing. It's a very scenic spot. I did it by motorbike, no real need to do it as a tour, but there are a couple of small travel agents in town who can help you out.

    Pretty part of the country.
