Mae Sai

When Maesai Guesthouse opened its doors here some 30 years ago, Mae Sai was a remote, muddy, off-the-wall destination for a few adventurous backpackers. Nowadays there’s still nothing new on the guesthouse scene, but several large hotels line the main street, though these mostly cater to cross-border traders and Chinese tourists. Unless you fancy chilling out at funky Maesai Guesthouse, there aren’t too many reasons to overnight here. Route 1 will in an hour have you back in Chiang Rai, with its wide range of accommodation, or heading an hour east will see you in picturesque Chiang Saen. If you do need to stay here though, here’s the best of the bunch.
