Motorbike hire shops are ubiquitous in Pai, dotting Chaisongkran and Rangsiyanon Roads in particular, while many hotels and guesthouses will also organise you a bike on request.
There’s an imposing taxi counter next to the bus station on Chaisongkran Road plus numerous smaller ones dotted around town.
Cycling is a woefully underused means of transport in Pai since, with largely flat terrain in the wide valley, generally good quality rural roads plus lots of country back lanes to explore, it is an ideal way to get around.
There is only one road through Pai: Route 1095, along which you can either travel southeast to Chiang Mai or northwest to Soppong and Mae Hong Son. Obviously, that includes any stops along the route, like Mae Malai, but any other destinations you see advertised will necessitate a change of bus.
In recent years Kan Airlines scheduled several weekly flights between Chiang Mai and Pai’s tiny airport, with even occasional links from Pai to Mae Hong Son.
