Day 1: CHIANG MAI - Full Day Chiang Rai & Golden Triangle

Pass rolling hills, dip into steep valleys, and explore many of the villages and roadside markets along an exciting route from Chiang Mai to Mae Sai. Along the way, stop at Wat Rong Khun - also known as ‘the White Temple’, a dazzling temple complex that stands out as one of the most incredible in the whole country. Although not as old as others in the Thai capital, its bright white façade, mirrored glass decorations and intricately-carved patterns are both distinct and arrestingly beautiful.
Next, head back on the road towards a charming Akha and Yao Hill Tribe village. After saying ‘hello’ to the welcoming locals, head on towards Chiang Saen and the Golden Triangle, the meeting point of Laos, Thailand and Myanmar. Enjoy the epic scenery along the Mekong River here and take a moment to capture the panoramic views with your camera.

Continue on to the Opium House, a museum that houses items like opium pipes, knives and scrappers that depict the history of the opium trade that made this area infamous in the not-so-distant past. Before heading back to Chiang Mai, visit the famous market at the border town of Mae Sai. Thai locals and Burmese often shop, bargain and even drink together in this vibrant market area. Pick up some souvenirs in the myriad of stalls here, ranging from handicrafts, faux fashion items, local produce and antiques. Give your feet a rest on the direct route back to Chiang Mai, arriving back in the late afternoon.

I thoroughly loved the game and would highly suggest it

The white temple was breathtaking and definitely worth a visit. Lunch was at a nearby Golden Triangle restaurant and had a buffet with an excellent assortment of foods and salads. We then spent some time at the Golden Triangle sightseeing and taking photographs before returning to Chiang Mai.

Dear Sirs, The description of this tour indicates that is suitable for young adults, single and solo travelers. Does that means that a 60 years old person can’t go?
