Be prepared for an early start as there will be a lot of ground to cover on this one day Chiang Rai tour from Chiang Mai! At 07:30am we will depart Chiang Mai and make our way north out of Chiang Mai to the province of Chiang Rai. Our first stop of the day will be at Mae Kha Jan hot springs this is a stop to break up the longish journey and here you can see the natural hot springs which surface in this area. Feel free to boil an egg in the hot spring water or dip your feet before we board the bus to continue the journey to the second stop of the day at Wat Rong Khun (White Temple). Wat Rong Khun was recently damaged by an earthquake but is still worth the stop and restoration work is well underway! We will then make the drive to Thailand's top north and the to the famous Golden Triangle here you will be able to stand at the view point over the Mekong River and see both Myanmar (Burma) and Laos while standing in Thailand. At the golden Triangle you can take the option of taking a long tail boat over to the Laos side where you will be able to visit a small tourist market. For those who do not take the boat ride option then they can visit a small museum detailing the opium poppy drug trade which once flourished in the golden triangle area. Following The Golden Triangle we will take a stop in Mae Sai which is the main border town between Myanmar, here you can visit the border market.
