It’s pretty easy to walk around most of Mae Hong Son. Official motorcycle taxi drivers wear a red tunic with a white number and within town they charge 20B; to Doi Kong Mu it’s 50B one way or 80B return. Motorcycle drivers will also take passengers further afield but fares out of town are expensive. There are now a few túk-túk in town; most are at the bus stop. They charge 40B per trip and 50B to the airport.
Motorcycles are readily available for rent (150B to 200B per day) around town.
