Fang (ฝาง, pron. fahng) is a city in northern Chiang Mai Province, Northern Thailand.

Get in

You can take the local bus from Chang Phuak bus station in Chiang Mai. Fang is 152 km from Chiang Mai and it takes about 3 hours to get there by local bus. A ticket costs 80 baht. Halfway, the bus stops for a leak and a snack.

To the northeast, Thaton is about 40 minutes from Fang by songthaew, with Chiang Rai another 3 hours away.

Get around

Unfortunately it's not possible to hire a (motor)bike, because so few tourists visit Fang there are no rentals. Monmai Resort does offer car hire, but you have to be a guest of the resort and rates start from 1000 baht per day with limited availability. Discovering the area, which is really beautiful and therefore worth to do so, is only otherwise possible by going on a tour. Then you'll be driven around in a car, jeep, or pickup.





As everywhere in Thailand there are plenty of local restaurants down the streets where you can get Thai and Chinese dishes.
