Getting There & Away
The main bus stand in Tha Ton is a long hike south along the highway, but buses also swing in at the parking lot just north of the bridge. Services include the following:
Bangkok 600B to 720B, 14 hours, three daily
Chiang Dao 63B, 2½ hours, seven daily
Chiang Mai 90B, four hours, seven daily
To reach Chiang Rai by road, take a sŏrng·tăa·ou to Mae Salong (60B, 1½ hours, three daily).
With your own car or motorcycle, you can continue to Mae Salong along Rte 107, turning off onto Rte 1089, following a fully paved but sometimes treacherous mountain road and passing scattered Lisu and Akha villages.
