Way up in the northern reaches of Thailand lies the leafy city of Chiang Rai—the gateway to the fabled Golden Triangle. Here, you’ll find a sleepy town with a lot of local character, much of it a colorful fusion of Thai, Lanna and hill tribe cultures. On our Chiang Rai tours, you’ll visit iconic landmarks like the White Temple (or Wat Rong Khun), an ornate paean to Buddhism with a contemporary twist, and the enigmatic Black House Museum (or Baandam). Chiang Rai is also the jumping-off point for exciting forest explorations, where vast cave networks, cascading waterfalls and picnics under the jungle canopy await.

We had the best holiday ever and it will always be a ?special memory? for us for the rest of our lives.
Thank you for giving us Bo in Bangkok.. He was/is a superb guide and always wanted to please us in everything. He went ?over and beyond? his ?guiding duties? in helping my husband retrieve our lap top computer, that he had accidentally left on the Kuwait Flight on our arrival into BKK. We could never had got this back so quickly? It was Bo?s quick thinking and phone calling/emailing procedures that manged to track it down for us so efficiently ? We will be forever indebted to him for this task he did with no complaint.
He was a charming man and our boys loved him, so did Adrian and I . His knowledge of everything we saw and visited was second to none. He was a true Professional.

Preecha was also amazing.. he collected us from Sukothai Airport and looked after us ..Again he was very experienced and very knowledgeable and made our trip exciting and stress free? He had a great sense of humour and Kraison our driver was fantastic? Our boys said he reminded them of their Grandfather.. ( which is a Big compliment by the way)
We loved Chang Mai and the visit to the Tallest Temple and having a monks blessing.. Preecha made this happen for us and we loved the experience.!

May in Phuket was lovely and looked after us to the Hotel and then the return to the Hotel.. She managed everything perfectly.
The Metadee was a fabulous Hotel and the staff were amazing.. We had the best New Year?s Eve Gala Dinner and Show , that we have ever experienced in our lives…Music , dance, fabulous food , fireworks, Thai dancing., prizes . the list is endless.. It?s an evening I will never forget and my best New Year?s party to date!

Thank you also to you Aye, for pulling together such a wonderful itinerary.. Everything was just great. It has truly been wonderful to work with you.. You are a truly professional lady.
Three of my friends are very keen to visit Thailand ,after hearing our stories in the next 5 years. I will ensure I pass on your details and Backyard Travel information to them .. as we are so happy with what you did and prepared for us.

What’s Special about Chiang Rai?

Far from the heat and hubbub of southern Thailand, Chiang Rai is the perfect location to refresh and recharge. The lifestyles here are in tune with nature, surrounded by shady forest and morning mist. Take a scenic drive to the Mekong River, visit hill tribe coffee plantations and take a dip under a waterfall. To get lost here is to find yourself.

Hill Tribes

In addition to its mountain vistas, Chiang Rai is also home to unique local color. The customs, crafts and costumes you’ll find here are distinct to the region, with the Akha, Lahu, Hmong and other ethnic minority groups living proudly as stewards of the forest.

Cool Climate

Due to its northern location and high altitude, Chiang Rai is cooler than the rest of Thailand. Average yearly temperatures hover around the low to mid 20s Celsius. Be prepared for rain from June to September and for hot season from March to May.

Entertainment

Chiang Rai may be a sleepy mountain town, but you can find some laid-back nightlife here, featuring casual restaurants, pubs and bars. During the day, enjoy an artisan coffee made from local hill tribe beans.

Eclectic Art

Many are surprised to discover that Chiang Rai is an art hub, with numerous established artists living in the area. A tour of the region will reveal galleries, museums and unique works of art—like that found at the White Temple.

Outdoor Adventures

Here in the fresh air are adventures and activities that can only be found in the mountains: hiking into an Akha village, exploring a cave by flashlight, or watching the sunrise from a hilly summit.

History

Chiang Rai boasts a long and storied history as a seat of Lanna culture. Founded in 1262, and weathering through periods of Burmese and Siamese control, Chiang Rai still retains its Lanna arts and heritage.
