day 1 : Chiang Rai & Golden Triangle tours (By Road)
Chiang Rai golden triangle tours
The golden triangle(Sam Liam Thong Kham) is in Chiang Rai province in a far north of Thailand. The english name comes from the meeting of Laos, Myanmar and Thailand. But to the locals it\'s Sop Ruak, since this is where the Maekong meets the Ruak River.
Historically the Golden Triangle has been an area well-known for the growing of opium, and the name comes from a US State Department memo on the practice. These days, though, the place lives on the cultivation of tourists, and this is undoubtedly the largest tourist trap in northern Thailand. The landscape is hilly, divided by the Ruak River that flows into the Mekong (Mae Khong) River. These rivers form a natural boundary between the three countries Laos (to the east of the Mekong), Myanmar (to the north of the Ruak), and Thailand (to the west of the Mae Khong).
2.00 PM Depart Chiang Mai by minibus for a scenic drive through undulating mountains and valleys,verdant woods, quaint small towns, picturesque villages and emerald green rice fields.(from June -Oct) Stop by at a hot -spring where you can mingle with the locals. Arrive to Chiang Rai and check in at a hotel for overnight accommodation.
day 2 : Visit hilltribe people
8.00 AM After breakfast at the hotel,drive to the flourishing border town of Maesai and stop by at a jade carving factory. Proceed to the ancient town of Chiangsaen, which was the very first kingdom in Thailand, situated on the banks of the mighty Mekhong River. Then on to the world - renowned Golden Triangle, where the borders of Thailand, Laos,Burma meet at the confluence of the Mekhong River. Stops are also made at a Yao hill -tribe village and an Akha hill-tribe village. See the quaint, but colourfully embroideried dresses that is their daily attire. Drive back to Chiang Mai.
