Getting from Bangkok to Chiang Mai

By Air
Bangkok has two airports: the Suvarnabhumi International Airport and the Don Muang Domestic Airport. The domestic airport is closer to the centre of the city. From both airports there are daily flights to Chaing Mai almost every hour. Several flights from Europe and Asia also fly directly to Chaing Mai.

By Train
There is an overnight train with comfortable beds leaving at 7 pm from Bangkok's main Railway Station, Hualamphong. The cost is between 700 to 1600 Bhat.

Getting from Chiang Mai to Pai

By Road
From Chiang Mai, take the highway #107 north towards Fang. After 33 km you will reach a traffic light where there is a big sign in English pointing to the left saying ‘Pai’. After turning left you are on the country road #1095 heading north-west to Mae Hong Son city. Stay on this road -- there are 730 curves waiting for you to master! -- and after 100km you will arrive in Pai. The Center is on the opposite side of the village.

By Tourist Van
Most people take this route with an air-conditioned van. A ticket costs 150 Baht and can be purchased at most guesthouses and travel agents in Chiang Mai. If you are not staying in Chaing Mai, you can take the van directly from the airport or from the Chaing Mai railway station. These tourist vans take approximately 3 to 3,5 hours. They leave Chaing Mai nearly every hour except at night. If you are staying in a guesthouse they will pick you up from where you are staying. Buy your ticket the previous day.

By Air
Kan Airlines is the only airline flying from Chiang Mai to Pai. The flight leaves once a day at around noon and will take 25 minutes in a small plane that seats 18 people. You can book your ticket online. The flight costs around 1,700 Baht.

By Road
We are 4 km outside Pai in the direction of Mae Hong Son city. Once you pass the airport, turn right. You will see our beige color sign: The Womb Med. Center. The road runs parallel with the airport landing strip. Keep on driving and after 2 km you will reach Baan Maekong. In the middle of the village, at a T-junction, you will see our sign pointing to the left. After making the left turn you go up a steep hill. Follow the road for about 500 meters until you see our  sign on the right side. Here our private dirt road begins, taking you downhill to the Center. Do not drive on the dirt road if your car has little ground clearance.
