Full Day trip to Chiang Rai

  • Mae Kha Chan Hot Springs
  • White Temple 
  • Golden Triangle
  • Mae Sai Border Market
  • Boat Trip along the Mekong River

This is a full day tour to the province of Chiang Rai. A province less than two hours drive from Chiang Mai, located at The Golden Triangle.


We started our trip pretty early, at 7:30am. A VIP van took us to our first stop on the way to Chiang Rai – the Mae Kha Chan Hot Spring. These hot springs are a natural wonder, so hot that you can boil eggs in the water (you can buy them there) and if you want to take a dip in the water you can. Just be careful to go in the cooler parts!

After we left the hot springs, refreshed by the natural water and boiled egg snack, we headed to Wat Rong Khun Mun, better known as the White Temple. This is by far the most famous landmark in all of Chiang Rai and we were not disappointed. It was designed by a local artist named Chaloemchai Kositpipat, and is distinctive thanks to its all white facade. There are also lots of art and religious instillations, many of which were white too. We brought some snacks and some souvenirs while we were there too.


Our next destination was the Mekong River, where we joined a cruise and crossed into Laos. The passage is found at the Golden Triangle, where Laos, Burma and Thailand meet. We only visited parts that allow tourists to visit without a visa, so there was no worry about paying for visas or getting stamped in or out during our trip. We visited the Don Islands, which are technically part of Laos where there was a local market selling wears, food and goods from Laos. It is not uncommon to see snakes, geckos and frogs on sale, but that is part of daily life in this area! 


We had a late lunch around 2.30pm at the Mae Sai Border Market. This is a hotspot for locals and tourists alike, full of interesting local products. We even went into Burma, but only in the small area near the border so they don't count it as crossing into another country - so again, no worries about visas. After we shopped the market and grabbed some great souvenirs, we headed back to Chiang Mai in the VIP van, taking around three hours to get back to the hotel.
