Touring Mae Rim
Mae Rim - Town Center
Heading north from Chiang Mai on Highway 107 will take you to the first town you come across, it's very small but has a bustling market and a small shopping arcade. Like many of the surrounding towns of Chiang Mai this is where a steady flow of traffic passes back and forth. It's a typical cross-roads town with the main road passing straight through and onwards.
Images of Mae Rim - Outskirts
As soon as you hit the outskirts of Mae Rim the left turn to the Route 1096 is easily visible (see above photo). Once you're on the 1096 it will take you all the way up and through the Mae Sa Valley and eventually to Sa Moeng.
If you go past the turn-off to the 1096 then you'll be able to see the valley as you look left (to the west).
The routes to the destinations have already been photographed by Watch-Rider. They serve as a handy guide and future reference.
Photo-Route Guide: The photos doubled into 'roll-over' pictures; when you move the mouse over it the picture 'rolls-over.'

Where to Tour in Chiang Mai Province
Road Lore: This town is close enough to the city of Chiang Mai to be reached within 20 minutes by road. It's not particulary important for anything tourists would be interested in so expect to see only the occasional one or two here. This road however does see them on tuk-tuks and samlors being carried back and forth to the Mae Sa Valley
