We visit Chiang Rai and Ching Mai. We cross Mekong river and visit Done Sao island of Laos. River crossing is lifetime experience for me. Done Sao has a wonderful botanical garden and only 50 Thai Bath is charge each person. In the garden they made cottage and furnished with information about the stopping of drug business in the Golden Triangle. Highly recommended to visit the island.

The place was not very crowded the day we went. You have very good view of the rivers and the surrounding countries. We rented a boat and did a river cruise. We even went over to Laos and spent some time there, had some coffee. Overall enjoyable experience.

We hired a scooter and travelled up from Chiang Rai to Golden Triangle. Lots of tourists there but not too busy. Great photo opportunities, not a lot to do but worth going too. Got to see the 3 countries, took lots of photos. Some market stalls and food stalls there & river trips. Spent about 30mins there.

Fantastic experience. From a really emphatic welcome from the staff to the quality of our room, you couldn’t fault it. The food was amazing with so many delicious choices.
We met the elephants and walked with them, stroked them and had photos with them and they were a very gentle bunch! The Mahouts were equally as friendly and facilitated whatever you requested that the elephants do. Amazing experience. Loved everything about this place and the staff.

A friend and I went on a short boat ride (30 minutes?) and got to see Myanmar, Laos, and Thailand from the water. Some nice views and a interesting experience.

It's rather special to visit the confluence of three countries - and on the mighty Mekong as well. The town is rather low key, but none the worse for that. There are the usual souvenir shops and a variety of places to eat, all very close to the impressive Golden Buddha, elephant figures and land based ship. There's also, not surprisingly, an opium museum, but we weren't tempted inside. A very pleasant trip in the country and well worth a visit.

Best to experience to see it oneself. You see can how close 3 countries can be just side by side along the river. I will recommend my friends to visit this particular spot. :)
