Mae Sot

Getting there and away


Buses depart Mae Sot for Bangkok daily, starting at 16:00, with the last bus leaving at around 22:00 from the main bus terminal. Air-con VIP busses take 8 hours, with slower busses taking up to 12 hrs.

Buses to Tak leave every 45 minutes throughout the day and take 90 minutes.

For a songthaew to Umphang, head south down Sri Phanit and about 100m south of the mosque take the left turn. The songthaew station is just on the right side soon after you enter the soi. If you're having troubles just ask a local for 'Songthaew Umphang' and they'll point you in the right direction.
