Thailand - Chiang Rai - White Temple - 800x450

 

Chiang Rai is the northernmost province of Thailand and shelters the renowned Golden Triangle at the point where Myanmar, Laos and Thailand converge. Here the Hall of Opium museum recounts the history of opium, the substance which shaped the destiny of the Golden Triangle.The province’s dramatic mountains and rolling uplands provide a scenic environment for trekking and elephant riding.  Visits and homestays to the numerous hill tribes provide an insight into traditional rural lifestyles.  Longtail boat trips and rafting along the Mae Kok River give a waterside perspective on the forested landscape.
