Bus ride from Mae Hongson to Mae Sot
4 hours on a big bus and then transferred to a small pickup truck with semi-padded benches in the rear with a top for 6 more hours. At one point there were 21 women, children and men either in the back of the truck or standing on the rear bumper and holding on. The scenery in the mountains was truly incredible though and Lonely Planet has it listed as best overland trip in Thailand.
