Plan

.

Day 1: CHIANG RAI – GOLDEN TRIANGLE AND ROUTE ON CHIANG MAI

During this transfer you will visit the mythical Golden Triangle and then the Burmese border, the Temple of the Apes, the famous tea plantations, a village of the hill tribes and the now much sought-after White Temple, before finally making its way to the most famous town in the North, Chiang Mai

Golden Triangle

Chiang Rai Golden Triangle Park where the borders between Thailand meet, Laos and Myanmar and where 70% of the opium market was produced many years ago, today this trade has been completely swept away by tourism, at least in Thailand. At this point you will take the boat for a nice ride on the Mekong river, with a visit to the market on the Lao side.

Mae Sai Burmese border and checkpoint

The border of Mae Sai (Thailand) – Tachileik (Myanmar) is located at the northern end of Thailand, near the Golden Triangle where it they border the borders between Laos, Myanmar and Thailand. It is a special border because you can cross it without your passport being stamped. The standard border rules do not apply here.

Wat Thampla (Monkey Temple)

Wat Tham Pla, called Monkey Temple (Monkey Temple), this temple located at 16 kilometers from Mae Sai and therefore 45 kilometers from Chiang Rai is a nice stop on the way to Mae Sai.

Choui Fong Tea Farm- rice fields 

Chiang RaiFor half a century, Chong Fong tea has been well known for traditional teas of high quality cultivated in his fields in Chiang Rai – agricultural center in the kingdom of Thailand. In terms of production capacity, Choui Fong is the largest compared to other tea producers in Chiang Rai province. We have been present for over 40 years and consistently, we have maintained a very high quality standard. We produce one of the best teas in Thailand. We have built a growing list of customers over the years; here in Thailand and other countries. Our customers have stayed with us over the years due to the high quality of the tea we produced.

Wat Rong Khun, White Temple

Visit of the beautiful Wat Rong Khun White TempleIt is a contemporary work, started to build in the very recent 1997, still under construction for perhaps another 40 years but already at a good point (it would seem already completed at first glance), the temple is constantly under modification and its very particular and characteristic design refers to Buddhist mythologies, human sins and pop culture icons like Michael Jackson, Harry Potter and Superman. It is very suggestive, a “must to see” of the North.

Umbrella village – BoSang Handicrafts.

Here is the world famous village where hand-made umbrellas and hand-painted paintings are still made today. Tai silk Village – Sankampaeng, Chiang Mai silk village. craft. Silk is a key product, the basis of magnificent traditional costumes. Thai silk is known throughout the world for its thick fabric that absorbs the bright colors used in the fabric dyeing process. Observe how women weave silk looms: the fingers move at a very fast pace to weave the fabric following the rhythm of the loom. It is a hypnotic spectacle and the resulting fabric is unique.

Visit the Wat Pha Lat 

Chiang MaiWat Pha Lat located in the forest a few kilometers from the famous Doi Suthep. There are no crowds, shops or food stalls, there are no unwanted distractions. This Buddhist temple is as peaceful as possible, sitting next to a waterfall and hidden under the tree’s foliage. It may be completely out of sight, but it has a splendid view of the city of Chiang Mai that is worth admiring. It takes 45 minutes on foot but it’s worth it, the temple and the place are real gems.

Visit to Wat Phra That Doi Suthep
