Fang is a typical Thai agricultural industry city, with little agricultural charm but friendly people.
Until ten years ago this area did not even have tarred roads, so the economic developments in the past years have been tremendous. Tha Thon 30km up the road gets more attention because of the rafting but Fang is a great base to explore the border area with Burma/Myanmar. Beautiful mountains, ethnic hill tribe villages and stunning views from Thailand's second highest mountain... unbeatable.
Lots of interesting Hill Tribe activities sponsored by the hotel. They can arrange informative tours of local hill tribe villages and are very active in providing support for the local hill tribes.
