Chiang Rai

Nestled into the lush mountains of northernmost Thailand, Chiang Rai surrounds its visitors in hill tribe culture and scenery. Chiang Rai is also the name the city's province which has bared some infamy for being within the Golden Triangle, a previously heavy drug traffic zone shared with the nearby borders of Myanmar and Laos. An 11 hour bus ride from Bangkok can leave many visitors looking to relax. Fortunately they can, either by picking through hill tribe crafts in the night market, relaxing along the shore of the Mae Kok River or taking a look-out residence in the many hilltop guesthouses. Many travellers arrive in Chiang Rai from Chiang Mai to begin their treks to hill tribe villages.
