Mae Sariang’s location close to the Burmese border makes it an ideal base for exploring some lesser-travelled areas. The centrally located Northwest Guest House organizes local tours, such as boat trips on the Salween River and three-day treks into the wild countryside along the Burmese border near Mae Sam Laeb, including the Salween boat trip (around B2500/person based on a group of two; cheaper in a larger group). The friendly and helpful owner, Tuk Ta, can arrange trips to suit your needs, and is open to offering discounts.
