    • Chiang Rai & Chiang Mai

    See the highlights of Chiang Rai in a single day on an extended tour of its exciting activities and scenery. See the highlights of this extraordinary city, including the exquisite White Temple and the vibrant Blue Temple. Explore two different hill tribe villages to experience their unique traditions and lifestyles. Visit the Golden Triangle to stand at the border of three countries and many years of history.


    An English-speaking Thai guide will pick you up at your hotel in the early morning. Drive north through the countryside, past rice paddies, farms, and rolling hills, to a local sulfuric hot spring. Stop here to grab coffee and snacks and admire the scenery before continuing along the scenic road. 

    Head to the White Temple first, one of the world’s strangest and most extraordinary pieces of architecture. Built by a Thai artist, this all-white building stands striking against the sky. Decorated on the outside with sparkling mirrors and unusual sculptures, the insides of this temple are even more remarkable, covered in murals of popular fictional characters. 

    Enjoy lunch at a Thai restaurant before continuing to the Golden Triangle. Enjoy the view of Thailand, Laos, and Myanmar from this famous overlook, the meeting point of three countries and two rivers meet. 

    Head from the border of three countries to two completely different cultures. Visit two hill tribe villages belonging to the Akha and Long Neck Karen. Discover the unique lifestyles lived by these two different tribes, as seen in their clothing and adornments. Women of the Akha tribe wear headdresses made with silver beads, bells, and coins. The women of the Long Neck Karen tribe wear brass rings around their necks. Shop around for unique keepsakes, handmade by tribal women here. 

    Stop finally at the Blue Temple (Wat Rong Suea Ten), vibrant in a floor-to-ceiling cobalt blue. Admire the gold and blue decor on the temple facade, flanked on all sides by carved angels and nagas. After a full day of exploration, rest and relax on the beautiful drive back to Chiang Mai.
