With a large sign posted off the main drag running into town from the north, Phu Doi Campsite and Resort is the most obvious place to stay after arriving from Mae Sot, and it’s a decent option if you don’t feel like looking around too much.

The fairly large and efficient resort (they even have a reception booth!) offers a bunch of rooms spread over several log cabins off a side lane to the east of town. All rooms come with fan and air-con; ask for the air to be switched off to save a couple of hundred baht. The rooms that we checked out had soft foam beds over hardwood floors, a couple of windows, TVs and small hot-water wet bathrooms with some mold on the walls. While these weren’t terrible, you’ll find better-quality digs on the other side of town, at Tu Ka Su and Garden Huts. Phu Doi’s larger rooms in a newer wooden building were full but we reckon they’re a solid step up from the older rooms. These include family rooms that can accommodate up to six people. All guests can grab free instant coffee and toast in the mornings. You can also rent a tent here and use a shared bathroom.

The English-speaking owner and his son were both friendly and helpful, if a little more business-like than staffers that we met elsewhere. A full range of trekking and rafting tours are available and Phu Doi does a commendable job of providing the details in English. The family also runs a neighbouring billiards hall called Beer Umphang. The centre of town is an easy five-minute walk from here.
