Join our two-days tour through the peaceful province of Chiang Rai to discover the beauty of rural Thailand.
Day 1: Chiang Mai – White Temple – Canoes on the Kok River – Karen Village
In the early morning, at 7:30 am, your English-speaking guide will meet you at the hotel to depart in a private vehicle towards Chiang Rai.
Located near the borders of Laos and Myanmar, Chiang Rai is a mountainous provincial province with a pleasant and relaxed atmosphere.
There, visit Wat Rong Khun, also known to the foreigners as the “White temple”. Located outside the city, this fascinating temple is very different from all the ones you usually see in Thailand. Created by Thai artist Chalermchai Kositpipat and started in 1997, it combines Buddhist and contemporary art in a tangled pattern of spectacular statues and sharp edges.
Then, embark on a long-tail boat for a nice cruise along the Kok River to the Karen Ruammit village where you will be welcomed by the local guide.
The Kok River originates in the Daen Lao Range, Shan State of Burma. It flows eastward to the border between Burma and Thailand, arriving at the border town of Thaton.
The Ban Karen Raummit village is located just on the banks of the River Kok and it’s the home of several mountain ethnic groups such as Akha, Lahu, Karen, Lisu, Hmong, and Lue. After a guided tour of the village and a meeting with the locals, return to Chiang Rai.
The rest of the day is free. Take this opportunity to relax by your hotel’s swimming pool or walk to Chiang Rai’s “Night Bazaar” where you could taste the local cuisine.
Day 2: Doi Tung Botanical Garden – Golden Triangle – Wat Phra That Phu Kao – Chiang Mai
Enjoy your local breakfast at the hotel before transferring to Doi Tung. There, you’ll get to visit the royal villa, its botanical garden, and the work of the Princess Mother, an invaluable legacy for the Thai people.
Doi Tung Botanical Garden is one of the most beautiful botanical gardens in Thailand. It is very colorful and very well maintained. Above the garden is the cottage where the Princess Mother worked. Her move to Doi Tung was to improve the lives of the local people who lived at that time with opium cultivation.
Your next stop is the Golden Triangle, the place where Thailand, Laos, and Burma meet on both sides of the Mekong. Known as a fancy region since the 1950s for being an important center of opium trafficking, it’s today a perfect sightseeing spot. Enjoy the beautiful view of the Mekong River offered by Wat Phra That Phu Kao.
At the end of the day, return to Chiang Mai, head full of beautiful memories.

On your way, you will often have the opportunity to meet local people. Wherever you are, be discreet and humble. The multiplicity of cultures and traditions means that certain attitudes are perceived differently in different countries. To avoid being disrespectful, take the time to understand the people you meet, take the time to make connections. There too, listen to the advice of your guide!
He knows better than anyone the behaviors to avoid or adopt. For example, if you want to take a picture of someone, always ask them for permission. The best way for acceptance is to have established a prior contact. Similarly, do not distribute gifts at all … This often encourages children to beg, to avoid this kind of drift, it is better to refer to the local structures competent (donate to school, hospital, village chief etc.). Finally, be careful not to wear too light clothing (short shorts, cleavage …) and avoid exuberant behavior
