For those who like nature, you can go up to see the sunrise over the Mekong and the sea of mist in the morning at Doi Pha Tang. Feel the cold and see the 360 degree sea view mist at Phu Chi Dao. See winter Flowers at Mae Fah Luang Gardens around Doi Tung Palace. Tracing the “13 Wild Boar Caves” EVENT at Tham Luang-Khun Nam Nang Non-Forest Park. In addition, because Chiang Rai is a province that is at the junction between Thailand, Myanmar and Laos, tourists can view both sides of the Mekong at Golden Triangle And visit Mae Sai market – Tha Khi Lek Along the Thai-Burma border as well
Though Chiang Rai is situated right next to Chiang Mai, it’s such a pity not that many people visit the city. So why not visit both for travel memories of your lifetime?
