Pai is a little town set approximately midway between Mae Hong Son and Chiang Mai. Here is where you’ll find a land largely undisturbed. Enter this picturesque town located deep within a valley and you’ll find yourself enjoying life in the slow lane. Traverse outer Pai for encounters with natural hot springs, waterfalls and ethnic hill-tribe villages. Or meander through the eastern part of Pai, and follow the trail of the scenic Pai River that cuts through it. Bamboo rafting and white-river rafting are popular activity choices, or you can choose to hike or trek through the valley. The town center is a draw for creative types, who choose to while their time away in Pai’s many cafe galleries, or out on their riverside porches, chilling away. There are only three busy streets in the town center, so irrespective of your accommodation location, you’ll be fairly close to the action. And if you’re wondering where to stay in Pai, we have plenty of options for you. Check out our list of the top 10 Airbnbs in Pai, Thailand, and book one today.

Re-wild House in Pai is a small bungalow with organic spa services. Stretch your “me time” with yoga classes in the morning and visits to the hot springs. The night market, which is one of the best non-touristy things to do in Pai, is 0.93 miles away from the bungalow and you can arrange for a shuttle to bring you there. It is also near to a temple named Wat Phra That Mae Yen, which many visitors enjoy visiting because of the view of the town that the temple provides from atop, as well as the glorious sight of the reclining Buddha statue.
Each bungalow comes with an attached bathroom, and wireless connectivity is available throughout the estate. Free parking is available for those who drive.

This house is tucked away quietly in a neighborhood just 0.3 miles away from the Walking Street Market. A traditional Thai style teak house, you’ll get your own garden with fruit trees and flowers, and you can wake up to the sounds of birds singing.
There is a large and comfortable outdoor dining area in the house that is sheltered from the sun and the rain.
The bedroom is separated from the kitchen by a lockable door and has an en-suite bathroom. The bedroom windows and exterior door have mosquito shutters fitted on them. There are two large portable fans - one in the bedroom, one in the kitchen. The bedroom also has an aircon unit, however, the use of air-conditioner will require an additional charge. You may not need it since buildings that are made out of teak wood tend to stay cool during the day. The kitchen has a large fridge, an electric kettle and an electric cooktop, as well as basic cooking and dining utensils. Should you require help with your luggage, contact the host before you arrive so that he can get ready.
