Day 2 Mae Hong Son: This morning's excursion begins with a 30 minute long-tailed boat trip along the scenic Pai River to Baan Nam Piang Din, a small Thai-Myanmar border village. Travel onwards to visit the exotic long-necked Karen hill tribe village, where the womenfolk wear brass rings around their necks. The tour concludes with the chance to visit elephants in the jungle before you proceed back. The afternoon is at leisure to relax or explore independently.
