Chiang Rai

— 4 nights
Enjoy a cultural and relaxing vacation in Chiang Rai, the capital city of an eponymous province.
Get outdoors at Phu Sang National Park and Fang Hot Spring. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Wat Thaton and Wat Mung Muang. Change things up with a short trip to Wat Chedi Ngam Temple in Fang (about 2 hours away). There's still lots to do: take a stroll through Ban Karieng Ruammit, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Wat Rong Seur Ten (Blue Temple), and take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Doi Mae Salong.

Chiang Rai Province, the northernmost province of Thailand, features rolling hills through agricultural areas where hill tribes can be found growing coconuts, pineapples, coffee, and bananas. Visitors can trace the histories of these tribes through the region's cultural villages as well as ethnographic museums. Buddhist temples dot the changing topography of the region, providing a spiritual center to the rural industry and geographic vastness of the province.
