Visiting a one of the numerous Karen Long Neck villages in Thailand is one of the most exotic experiences on the planet. The mystery and beauty that sound the tradition of using brass rings for exaggerated jewelry is something better seen in person than in a book. We had ethical questions on if it these hill tribe villages would feel like human zoos, but thankfully we decided to visit anyway. It is a real life National Geographic Magazine to have to see to believe.

Took a private tour with a driver from the hotel in Chiang Rai. Visited a few temples along the way. Also the opium museum is very interesting. We took a boat ride on the Mekong River and went to the market in Laos. They keep your passport during the boat ride which worried me somewhat. I suppose the reason is illegal entry into Laos. All was OK. Golden Triangle is worth a visit. Also due to the history. We certainly enjoyed it
We caught a bus from Chiang Rai to the Golden Triangle to visit the Opium Museum and to take a boat along the Mekong river. The museum was very interesting and the boat ride pleasant although we were unable to understand what the driver was saying to us but still an enjoyable and memorable experience.
The Golden Triangle is the reason why I even considered staying in Chiang Rai for 2 nights. I was earlier planning to continue staying back in Chiang Mai, but keeping in mind the distance, time taken and available modes of transport, decided against it (and so glad I did). Bear in mind that The Golden Triangle is in a town called Chiang Saen, about 70-75 kms/1.5-2 hours one way from Chiang Rai, which in turn is 200 kms/3.5-4 hours from Chiang Mai. I'd make sense to either station yourself at Chiang Rai (preferred choice) or in Chiang Saen (limited things to do there though).
If you reach to Chiang Rai / Mae Sai. Come over to Golden Triangle, it's worth to have a boat ride for 500 bath / person. River sight seeing tour + visit to Donsao, Laos.
Thailand is vast and diverse among the country but the northern has heartbreaking landscapes. We had opportunity to visit the white temple, Karen long neck tribe & golden triangle. It was a long journey from Chiang Mai but our tour guide has made every effort to soften the trip. He is very knowledgable and quite good while explaining all tour points. He has engaged very well ensuring all of us had an understanding. He left us a good free time to discover the surroundings and have a taste of typical food and coffee. We were very pleased with the tour overall and yes it is a very long journey from Chiang Mai but as long as you don’t plan an early tour the following day is definitely worth doing it.
Clean areas, nice and cozy there are so many shop and restaurants. Unfortunately we were there on the day just unlocked the city but they not allowed to take a boat trip from Chiang Saen to Chiang Khong
It was pretty cool to see the island where Opium gets traded as it doesn't belong to any country. Then it was cool stopping over in Laos for an hour at the market. The Chinese are building a casino over there as well that I'm sure eventually tourists will be taken to.
