Sang Tong is one of the town’s oldest guesthouses -- it was established in 1987 -- and is a correspondingly well organised and fine tuned operation.

They boast a large range of beautiful bamboo and wooden chalets and houses set in a delightful garden located a short distance outside Mae Hong Son town. And therein lies the mains pros and the cons in one sentence. The garden is great and chalets (they’re certainly chalets not huts!) are beautiful but the short distance translates to up a hill and down a narrow muddy track so if you go out after dark take a flash-lamp and a stick for fighting off the neighbourhood dogs. ‘Wide range’ means a confusing variety, with practically no two rooms the same.

Rooms are all well appointed and lovingly decorated though. Most come with large balconies overlooking a teak plantation and nearby farmland. Chalets are a mixture of wood and traditional woven bamboo and have equally traditional leaf roofs with considerable eco-efforts made. While they are fan-cooled rather than air-con, it’s rarely that hot at night, and there's a fine pool in the garden to enjoy during the heat of the day.

Their restaurant comes highly recommended -- convenient since it’s such a hike from town -- with well prepared local and Shan dishes on the menu and several good Western food options

Our only gripe with this spot is their aggressive dogs, which you’d think would be used to tourists by now but which we certainly found rather off putting. If they were that noisy at 11:00 it also makes us wonder how noisy they’d be at 23:00.

All their room options are firmly in the flashpacker range and their published prices ranged from 1,000 baht for a smaller chalet up to 3,200 for huge suite ones. There are many options in between! Published rates are high season ones, and low season is open to negotiation.
