Golden Triangle is an area where people used to grow opium, at the boarder or Laos, Myanmar and Thailand.
You can visit the place e.g., while being in Thailand, but I don’t really think it’s worth visiting…
Geysers nearby Chiang MaOn today’s picture you can see a small geyser, protected with a fence. There are some hot springs and geysers in Chiang Mai province. As in similar places around the world, locals boil eggs “in the geyser” and sell them to tourists. 🙂
Chiang Mai, with its nearby attractions, is one of the most interesting places for tourists in Thailand.
Of course, foreigners go to Bangkok or islands and it’s also fine, but I think Chiang Mai offers much more.
“Bridge on the River Kwai” is a title of a fictional British-American war film, that was based on the novel by Pierre Boulle. It has a very characteristic song that’s whistled in a movie several times. You can see that bridge in Thailand. Well, it may be nothing special, but I remember this song from my childhood, because my father was whistling it very often, so I really wanted to see that bridge. 🙂
Visiting floating markets is one of a must-do while being in Thailand.
Even it’s something very touristic, it’s still an interesting experience to see the market located on the boats, while being on a boat.
Chiang Rai has a few tourist attractions, but I still recommend to focus just on the White Temple (Wat Rong Khun). Well, some people may say it’s a beautiful temple, but “creepy” is also a good description.
Anyway, it’s something unique and worth visiting.
