Last year we had a guest house which was terrible but this year we found a diamond! Across the road from the Riverside Hotel the guest house above the sea is very good. Rooms are very new at the back of the property. We were very impressed by the security locks which enable you to lock even from inside. The bed was comfy although as in all Thailand firm! The aircon was new and the bathroom roomy and very clean.

Basic accomodation is compensated b. An off the beaten track location that feels like a real adventure. The communal area with hammocks, sleeping chairs and shared tables , guitar and table tennis make this the ultimate chill out place. Pat- chief organiser- did everything to make our stay memorable. Do the caves and 2 day hikes - hard work but memorable. We could not kayak as planned to Mae Hong Son as water was too low. Had a great time here went on a 3 day kayaking trip, did some caving and hiked in the hills using their free map.

Five-star hotels, the best local delicacies and private police escorts are included in the package whenever VIPs visit. But there's another "must try" item to cross off the list.
