You will be picked up early at your Chiang Mai hotel to commence the drive north to the province of Chiang Rai. On route we will make a brief coffee stop at the Mae Khajan Hot Springs, The hot springs make an ideal spot to stretch the legs, grab a coffee and boil an egg or two in the hot spring water! We will then continue the drive to undoubtedly one of Chiang Rai’s main highlights, Wat Rong Khun, sadly a little damaged in the 2014 earthquake repairs are now underway on this stunning white temple. After Wat Rong Khun we will continue north stopping at Baan Dam Museum. The dark clad buildings at Baan Dam contain an eclectic mixture of artefacts collected by the founding artist. We will proceed north to the town of Chiang Saen, where we will board a motorboat on the Mekong river, the boat will take you up river and across to the Laos side where you can step into Laos and visit the Laos tourist market at Don Xao. We will continue by boat up the Mekong to The Golden Triangle, this is the meeting point of Thailand, Laos and Myanmar (Burma) from the viewpoint you can see all three countries divided by the mighty Mekong River. We will take lunch before heading to to the absolute top north of Thailand and the border town of Mae Sai. On the return to Chiang Mai we can stop to take the option to see the Paduang hill tribe (commonly referred to and definitely better know as the Karen Long Neck). Following the last stop of the day the drive will continue to Chiang Mai and drop off at your Chiang Mai hotel.
Note: this tour involves a Lot of driving to cover the large distance between Chiang Mai and the top north of Thailand. If you take this tour please be prepared for this.
