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.

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.
