Next step - drive or be driven - Mae Hong Son loop

Jump to last reply

Good evening

I have my hotels (all but one last night along the MHS loop).

I have my intra-country flights all squared away. Bangkok to CM, CM to Krabi, Krabi to Bangkok.

Now, to decide on my last night along the MHS loop and then decide if I want to drive myself or be driven (and logistics around having a driver).

I am taking four days to do the loop.

First stop will be Hotel des Artistes in Pai for one night.
Fern Resort in Mae Hong Son for two nights
LAST NIGHT - where?

When I wake up from my last night on this drive, I have to drive to Chiang Mai in time to make a 1230 flight to Krabi. I guess that means I should be at the airport at 1030 AM to give me time to drop the car and get inside and checked in. A three hour drive would be fine but closer would be better. It would be nice not to feel rushed to get to the airport.

As far as having a driver, how does that work? I would expect a driver for four days would be quite expensive - or do you just hire someone new at each destination? And if I do get a driver, how much would I expect to pay - is it on par with a rental car, more, less?

Should I rent a car instead? I typically rent in Europe (including the UK when I've been outside London) and it's no problem even when alone.

Kop Koon Kah, again!
