Chiang Rai & Golden Triangle: Group Day Tour

If you would like to visit Chiang Rai and the Golden Triangle but only have the time for a day tour, this private tour will take you there. Please be aware that this is a very long day with a lot of time spent in your tour van.

Ideally you should book this tour on a date when you can get to bed early the night before, and you will probably want to sleep in a little the following day.

Optional Activities

The Mekong river boat trip is optional and costs THB300 per person payable in cash on the day. You visit a market on the Laos side of the river which is of minor interest, but it is quite a fun boat ride. If you do not go on this optional side trip, you can walk around the markets that line the river on the Thai side.

What to bring

You must bring your passport if you will take the Mekong boat ride. The boating company is required by law to keep your passport in their office while you cross the river.
Make sure your phone/camera is fully charged and consider bringing a power bank to recharge.
