OPIUM HAS GONE, BUT TEA HAS COME

The unknown province of Chiangrai is one of the most interesting in Thailand, given its history, the beauty of its landscapes and the diversity of its ethnic communities living in its mountainous countryside.

 

You will of course go to the Golden Triangle and will visit the unmissable Ho Fin (Hall of Opium) http://www.goldentrianglepark.com/ , but also to the superb Doi Tung dominion and its beautiful botanic garden http://www.maefahluang.org/ , as well as the village of Mae Salong, built on the crest of a mountain and surrounded by tea fields.

 

Naturally, you will appreciate the peaceful atmosphere of Chiangrai, its night market, its white temple… but you will also visit the remains of the ancient city of Chiangsaen. 

 

This program starts and ends in Chiangmai, but can be adapted for those flying to Chiangrai, straight from Bangkok, without passing by Chiangmai. Hotel chosen is a very comfy 4 star hotel fully equipped, making this package a must of originality and comfort.
