Teak Houses In Mae Hong Son

Mae Hong Son is full of great examples of old, Northern style teak wood houses. Teak wears like iron. It is in fact almost as hard as iron, but teak is much more resistant to the sun and the rain. Rich people often buy up a couple of old wrecks and have the wood professionally reconitioned and built into a new mansion. This one is a working store; the owners live upstairs.
