A visit to the Akha and Yao tribes allows visitors to sample the lives of 2 of the most colorful minorities in the Kingdom. The people are rightly famous for their very exotic and beautiful costumes and can be seen in many towns in Thailand selling their unique handicrafts. Akha people are usually of small stature, with dark skin and fine, delicate features. Despite their typical poverty, they have a resolute spirit and a great sense of humor. Their villages are widely scattered throughout the northeastern part of northern Thailand, with concentrations around Nan, Phayao and Chiang Rai.

Carry on to Chiang Saen, a small crossroads town where The Mekong River borders the north end of the district, forming the boundary with Laos. Explore the city ruins and witness the panoramic view of the Golden Triangle.

Last stop is Mae Sai, the northernmost town of Thailand, where visitors are given the opportunity to explore the many local flea markets.
