What To Expect

Mae Khachan Hot Spring
In the morning, we’ll board our transport and head north towards Chiang Rai. Our first stop will be at Mae Khajan Hot Spring, Thailand’s largest geyser. After dipping our toes into the warm, natural mineral water, we’ll continue our journey to the White Temple.

Wat Rong Khun
Wat Rong Khun, or The White Temple, is not just mesmerizing on the outside. Once you enter the doors of this elaborate structure, you will see the painstaking attention to detail of Chalermchai Kositpipat, a globally recognized local artist and owner of this private art exhibit. His representation of Buddhist principles combined with modern pop culture shown on the inside is something you can only see for yourself – and must as photos are prohibited inside!

Golden Triangle
Next we’ll board our transport and stop for lunch before exploring the world famous Golden Triangle. The nickname was coined by the CIA in reference to this region, whose trading posts’ top product was opium. Join us as we dive deep into the wild history of this area and how it became one of the most notorious narcotrafficking spots in the world.

1 hours • Admission Ticket Not Included

Wat Pra That Pukhao
We’ll then head to the nearby Wat Phra That PuKhao Temple, which is situated by the river and is an ideal spot to witness spectacular views of the river, mountains, and Golden Triangle. If you’ve still got the energy, we can also take a boat ride across the Khong river to the Laos local market which is filled with fresh, local produce, before heading back to the city.
