If you enjoy a holiday in Chiang Rai province in northern Thailand, do not miss the chance to see the infamous Golden Triangle where Thailand, Myanmar, and Laos meet. Locally known as Sop Ruak since it is where the Ruak River flows into the Mekong River, this mysterious site was once the center of opium production and trade in the world. Today, the Golden Triangle is a tourist draw with peaceful landscapes, misty mountains dotted with hill tribe villages and ancient temples. Here, you can enjoy many photo ops at the gate marking the Golden Triangle, marvel at the giant golden Buddha seated on the riverside ship, check out the hilly Phra That Doi Pu Khao temple or explore all aspects of opium around the world at the Hall of Opium. You can also go on a long tail boat trip across to a Lao island named Don Sao without a visa or along the Mekong to Chiang Saen for a more authentic Thai experience.
