Thailand is about 785 kilometers north of Bangkok
and has an average elevation of 580 meters above
sea level. Chiang
Rai is situated in the Mae Kok
River basin. It reaches from the Mekong River
to the north, to Chiang Mai province to the south,
and borders both Myanmar and Laos, and China is
265 km. away by boat. Chiang Rai is surrounded
by mountains with evergreen and deciduous forests,tea
plantations and lovely waterfalls. There are a
variety of hill
tribes (minority peoples from
China and Myanmar) to be found in the area, including
Karen, Mien, Hmong, Lisu, Lahu, and Akha.
The friendliness of the local people,
along with their magnificent arts and culture, attract
visitors from all over the world. The
Golden Triangle, historically connected
to the opium and heroin trade, is the meeting point
of three national borders ( Thailand , Laos and Myanmar).
You can relax and enjoy the beautiful scenery of Doi
Mae Salong and Doi Tung. At Doi Tung you may explore
the Royal Villa (the first residence of the Princess
Mother) and her Flower Garden. Adventurous activities
such as elephant riding,
and boat trips are available here as well.
If you don't like one of our set tour
programs, we can put a custom
trip together, or adapt our programs to suit
your needs. We can design a complete,
custom trip to suit your interests and the time you
have available. Allow me to take care of you and show
you the beauty and wonders of my homeland when you visit
Chiang Rai and Northern Thailand.
