Golden Triangle / Don Island / Chiangsan: Tour Description
Experience some of the most wonderful sights around the Chiang Rai area on this exciting, action-packed tour!
We begin our half day adventure by visiting the legendary Golden Triangle; the famous area where three countries (Thailand, Laos and Burma) meet. The scenic vistas offer perfect photo opportunities, and the area has a fascinating history, not least for being one of the most prolific areas of production for opium! We will visit one of the traditional Opium Houses, situated on the bend of the Mekong River and take in the epic scenery from a viewpoint at Phukhao, enjoying the rare sight of being able to view three countries all at once!
For a change of pace, we will then climb on board a speed boat, and take a cruise down the beautiful Mekong river, until we reach the Laos-Burmese border and Don Island (Laos). Our final destination is the ancient city of Chiang Saen; the old capital of the area, with a fascinating history dating back to AD1260. We will have some time here to stroll through the beautiful streets, taking in the sights of antiquated temples and magnificent ruins, as our guide tells us the story of the city and its people.
For visitors wanting to discover more about the rich history of Chiang Rai, and want to visit some of the sights that make the surrounding area so special, JJKT Tours offer the perfect blend of culture, history and excitement to help you cultivate memories to last a lifetime.
