Departing from Chiang Mai, our first stop is Wat Rong Khun, also known as the White Temple. Prepare to be dazzled by this contemporary masterpiece, where striking modern art blends harmoniously with traditional Lanna aesthetics. Step inside and marvel at the intricate details, a testament to the vision of its creator. Next, we journey to Wat Rong Suea Ten, also known as the Blue Temple.

The intricate details and vibrant colors create a truly mesmerizing spectacle. Continuing onwards, we venture to Chiang Saen District, a place steeped in history. Here, we delve into the captivating narrative of the Golden Triangle, a region where the Mekong River forms a natural border between Thailand and Laos, and the Ruak River marks the boundary with Myanmar. From this vantage point, witness the majestic Mekong River snaking through the landscape, and catch glimpses of Myanmar and Laos across the water. The Golden Triangle wasn’t always a picturesque destination. Historically, the convergence of these three countries was a notorious center for opium cultivation, a fact reflected in its name. As we explore this region, we’ll learn about its past and its transformation. To fully appreciate the beauty of the Golden Triangle, we’ll embark on a scenic boat trip along the Mekong River. Immerse yourself in the serene landscape and observe the unique way of life of the communities residing on both banks. The Mekong, one of the world’s most significant rivers, originates from melting ice and snow in the Tibetan Plateau, flowing through mountains and plateaus before reaching this region. After a day filled with awe-inspiring sights and captivating stories, it’s time to bid farewell to Chiang Rai. We’ll return comfortably to Chiang Mai in the evening, where we’ll drop you off at your accommodation, marking the end of this enriching exploration of Northern Thailand’s cultural and artistic treasures.
