Welcome to Tha Ton


The trip downstream is possible from July to December – at other times, you may be the only foreigner in town. Nevertheless, there are some interesting detours in the area, including boat trips up to the Myanmar border and road trips to Mae Salong or the hot springs at Doi Pha Hompok National Park. The town has a sizeable population of Yunnanese migrants, who worship at the small Chinese-style mosque just south of the boat jetty.

Watch out for aggressive packs of dogs as you wander around.
