The roads around Pai are best explored by motorbike, the scenery is excellent and there is little traffic and good road surface. We hired a bike for a fews days and took a trip out to the hot springs. The water is almost unbearably hot in the lower pools (think stepping into a roasting hot bath) and up to 80C at the source. There is a wonderful smell of sulphur which reminded me of some of the places in New Zealand.
Unfortunately, it rained quite heavily for our last 2 days here so there was not much to do except sitting in coffee shops reading books (reading George Orwell's Burmese Days), great! Oh and Angie wanted to buy so much clothes here. They have really nice stuff and all Angie's style (she did buy one or 2 things here : )).
Really enjoyed Pai. If I was to have a one week holiday in Thailand I would start in Chiang Mai, then a few days in Pai and over to Mae Hong Son and back to Chiang Mai.
