This big beauty in Chiang Saen overlooks the Golden Triangle, offering views into Laos and Myanmar.
Thailand’s northernmost province is the best place to see the famed (and infamous) Golden Triangle.
There’s not much golden or triangular about it, really, but spending time at the intersection of Laos, Myanmar and Thailand floating down the Mekong, trekking in the hills or learning about the area’s drug trade at the Hall of Opium is worth a few days in addition to the city of Chiang Rai’s attractions.
