Overview

Once the capital city of the impressive Lanna Kingdom, Chiang Rai is now a culturally important province which is home to historical landmarks and amazing natural wonders, such as the Golden Triangle. The Golden Triangle is where the countries of Thailand, Laos, and Burma meet, and was once a hub of a bustling opium trade – the influence which can still be felt in the area’s culture.

For years, Chiang Rai avoided the big tourism trade that is common in many other parts of Thailand; life was a little easier, a little more down to earth. Even today, clans still live in traditional bamboo homes and each villages comes with its own distinct cultural character.

Chiang Rai tourism has finally climbed in popularity; now people come here to seek our natural landscapes, beautiful country sides, and a peek of the native hill tribe culture. Tourists will be glad to know that Chiang Rai is home to many development projects which allow the tribes live better, without draining their cultural heritage or natural environment.
