Falling in Love with Mae Hong Son, all over again

 A renewed love for the beauty of Mae Hong Son, its surroundings and its Cafes

The first time we set foot into that little town almost 9 years ago, we loved Mae Hong Son. Arriving as young 21 year old travel virgins on a speedy mini bus, the town, much like a lot of North Thailand embedded its green mountainous landscapes into our memories. As time progressed having lived in North Thailand as expats for several years now, we accumulated 7 visits to Mae Hong Son. Each time the town lost a little bit of magic, albeit because of bad weather or bad circumstances we started to view Mae Hong Son as a pit stop on the long journey around the 600km + loop from Chiang Mai. Forgetting the reasons why we fell for it originally so long ago.

Party Boat Sailing in South Thailand - Phuket & Krabi’s Beaches and Islands 

Us, and party boats is normally a combination that wouldn’t spring to mind. We rarely drink alcohol and live a quiet life in North Thailand. So when we were invited to join The Sail Spin on their 5 Day, 5 Yacht DJ Boat experience we weren’t sure if it was going to be an amazing journey, or our idea of hell.

After some thought, we decided that it was an opportunity that we couldn’t pass up, even if it was slightly out of our comfort zone. Plus we were being offered a complimentary 5 day experience of South Thailand’s Beaches and Islands, somewhere we had yet to explore during our 2 years living in the North.

Watch the Video to see what we thought of the experience. :-)

Would we do it again? Short answer - Yes, with a few modifications. We would prefer to join a trip like this with a group of our own friends rather than just a married couple alone amongst a large crowd of singles. But the beauty of South Thailand really shined through all that and made the experience a balanced mix of landscape, relaxation and socialization that would appeal to many.

Additional Info for The Sail Spin

If we paid for this trip it would have cost us $1290.00 USD per person. Included for this price is a double room cabin, food and soft drinks / water for the entire 5 days, gas for the Yacht and Dingy and a skipper to sail it. Alcohol prices are not included and you are encouraged to buy your own supply at the Yacht Haven Marina before you set sail.
