I really enjoyed being able to chill out in Mae Salong for a weekend. The ride up from Mae Chan in local transport was a highlight and very cheap. The vehicle stops in the centre of town which is conveniently near several accommodation options. The Saturday market was very ordinary but the morning market was great. Just get there well before 8 when most people will be packing away their fruit and veggies. Good town just to wander around, stretched across the ridge. There is an Akha village just off the main road but I felt awkward about visiting it. Akha ladies around town in their traditional clothing as part of their way to attract business to their stalls or things to buy. If you hire a motor bike, you get out of the town and see more of the stunning scenery of steep hills, tea plantations and little villages.
