Chiang Rai, a temple-studded city in northern Thailand, receives less visitors than its provincial neighbor Chiang Mai. However, those who brave the journey will be rewarded with lush green scenery and old temples like Wat Phra Kaew and Wat Klang Wiang. Beyond the city, the Golden Triangle, which straddles the borders of Myanmar, Laos, and Thailand, is home to hill tribes, elephant sanctuaries, and opium-era ruins.
Guests can stay in world-class hotels set against a backdrop of lush jungles and mountains, providing a bit of heaven. Elephant camps and other jungle activities are just a few of the thrills that guests at these exotic hotels will remember for the rest of their lives.
