How do I get to Pai? How do I get to Amy's Earth House?
To Pai: Local buses and mini vans (Prempracha bus service) leave from Arcade bus station in Chiangmai or from Mae Hong Son and take about 3-4 hours from either direction. Exact departure times are available in our eBook
aYa bus service or Terminal Green bus service will pick you up from any hotel within in the old city of Chiang Mai free of charge. Telephone: For aYa 053 247 663 or 053 247 889; For Terminal Green 084 485 00 44 or 086 455 15 67. The hotel reception will be pleased to call for you
It's also possible to take a flight with a Kan Air 12 seat aircraft. Flights leave Chiang Mai Friday—Sunday at 10:20 a.m, during high season there are up to four flights daily. Tickets cost THB 1,950. The flight takes 20 minutes
If you feel comfortable driving on steep, winding roads, you can rent a motor cycle or car in Chiang Mai. Take Route 107 north from Chiang Mai following the signs to Mae Rim, then follow the signs for Route 1095 to Pai. Although there are no petrol stations after joining Route 1095, petrol can be purchased in any of the villages along the route. If the village does not have a small petrol pump at one of the shops, many shops sell bottled petrol. The Thai word for petrol is Benzin. If you are renting a motor cycle, send your bags by bus. They will be waiting for you in Pai for a nominal fee.
When you get to Pai, you still have to get to Amy's Earth House (use the map below). If you arrive before 17:30 (the bus terminals are in the walking street; the walking street is closed to motorised traffic at around 17:30) there are motor cycle taxis opposite the Prempracha bus station and Taxis to the left (Pai does not have any tuk-tuks). If you take a taxi, ask them to take you to Amy baan deen, Mae Khong. You may call us to pick you up (the office at the bus station will also call us) or rent a bike
To Amy's: Turn right out of the bus-station and right at the first traffic lights (Black Canyon Coffee Shop); follow the road towards Mae Hong Son out to the airport; turn right immediately after the airport to Baan Mae Khong (just a few houses); at the crossing, go left — Amy's is on the right hand side after 300 meters
If you are a hiker, you can also walk the four kilometers. If you do, please take enough water on a hot day!
It's advisable to make reservations beforehand — we may be fully booked!

Renting a Motor Scooter/Motor bike for the first time ... Don’t be a statistic! Don’t get the Pai Tattoo* Pai’s Bike School was established to reduce the number of unnecessary accidents. Scenic tours also available. Tel. 080 614 5316 http://goo.gl/gEFJQ • Wear a helmet. • Wear sensible shoes – trainers or boots, not flip-flops– you need those toes. • Drive slowly. • Don’t drink and drive. *Pai Tattoo: A “Pai Tattoo” sounds great doesn’t it?
A real tattoo with sterile needles and all, to show the people at home. Unfortunately anyone that’s been in Pai long enough knows that to get a “Pai Tattoo” is an altogether totally different experience.
The needles seen when getting this tattoo, are the needles that adminitster the pain relief and stitch the wounds at the local Pai Hospital, once the mud, gravel, and dirt has been removed from all wounds.
You will often see tourists walking, or better said, limping around Pai, swathed in bandages.
If you have never ridden a bike before, tell them at the rental shop, or visit the bike school; they’ll give you a lesson in a quiet place and get you accustomed to riding a motorised pair of wheels in safely.
