Golden Triangle Loop (individual tour)
Tour Overview :
In the first day we visit 500 years old Shan Chedi, situated right on Burmese border. Then we take a steep unpaved road trough Chiang Dao National park, along Burmese border. Although this part of the trip could be a bit bumpy, we will get a chance to enjoy fantastic views and observe authentic hilltribe villages.
Then we visit Agricultural Project Angkang and arrive to Fang, where we stop for the night. It is a small city but you will experience "back to civilization" feeling when we finally get there.
Next day we visit charming Princess Mother Hall and arrive to Mae Sai, a border city. Here you have a chance to cross the border and visit Burmese city Thachilek (no visa required for one day stay in Burma). We spend the night back in Thailand in Mae Sai.
On the third day we visit the famous Golden Triangle, the point where borders of Thailand, Laos and Burma meet. Here we take a boat to make a small water trip along the great Mekong River. You can visit Laos during this trip (since we visit only a border area, you will not need a visa for Laos).
We also visit the famous Opium Museum that day, and then take a long ride along Laotian border. We sleep at a remote resort near Pu Chi Fa.
On the last day of the trip we arrive at Pu Chi Fa, an amazing rock hanging above Laos. It is especially impressive in the morning, when it is still foggy on the Laotian side. We go straight to Chiang Mai from here.
