About Thailand

Chiang Mai & Golden Triangle Summary

Add to Shortlist

Day 1 Chiang Mai/Doi Mae Salong

Awash with stunning temples, fabulous markets and a lively city centre, charming Chiang Mai is rich in culture and the gateway to the northern hilltribes. A relatively new village and part of Thailand's infamous 'Golden Triangle' area, Doi Mae Salong is a land of tea plantations, hilltribe villages and cherry blossoms.

Day 2 Golden Triangle

The charming city of Chiang Rai still has a small-town feel and is a lovely place to explore with a colourful night market and downtown area.

Day 3 Chiang Mai

Chiang Mai means 'new city', even though it was founded in 1296! It's a favourite among travellers due to its relaxed feel and cultural richness.
