Hey guys
just a question can we get a local bus from Pai to the border
as we have been quoted 500 baht each in a mini bus im sure we can do it cheaper! i asked at the bus stop but the guys english wasnt the best and he called his mate the taxi driver who quoted 1000baht each in a taxi and said theres no bus..
Any help would be great grin

I tried this but ended up going back to Chang Mai for the trip it worked out cheaper in the end. But not much. I doubt there is a public bus from a small town like Pai to Chang Kong. 500baht is probably worth it if you want to avoid going back to Chang Mai.

Doing the same in a few weeks. Is pai worth visiting? I read there are buses to chang rai every few hours, think that was in the lonely planet!

pai is really cool and chilled out just gutted it rained! there is no direct local bus to the border unless u buy the package deal (1750bht) or vip bus for 500bht. we had to go back to Chaing mai then chaing rai but missed the last bus which is 5pm so we will get the 6am bus to the border n hope to make the boat the same morning..
