Booked flight from Chiang Mai to Mae Hong Son, I was called the night prior to inform that flight was cancelled due to aircraft difficulties, after arriving in CNX fro BKK the next day, I was told they would refund my costs, which they did within two weeks, not too bad.

With reference to my previous post, I would like to inform you that Mae Hong Son is now served by Bangkok Airways and NOT Nok Air as I previously stated. I offer my apologies. Please see the airline's website for flight details, fares and on-line booking.
