Chiang Rai Day Trip from Chiang Mai City
From US$59.54
No visit to Chiang Mai is complete without seeing Wat Rong Khun, better known as the White Temple. Travel to the landmark with ease on a hassle-free day trip from Chiang Mai, ideal for first-time visitors with limited time. In just one day, tick off the 7th-century Chiang Saen and the Golden Triangle, and take a boat ride on the Khong River. Enjoy the convenience of hotel pickup and drop-off in an air-conditioned minivan, and receive personalized attention from your guide in a small group limited to nine people.
What to Expect

This guided tour begins with pickup from your Chiang Mai hotel. Board an air-conditioned minivan destined for the Chiang Rai province. During the journey, make a short stop at the Mae Khachan Hot Spring (Wiang Po Po).

Continue to Wat Rung Khun aka the White Temple. Your next stop is Chiang Saen, a river town replete with ancient temple ruins. Here, you get the chance to break for a buffet lunch.

Absorb views of the Golden Triangle, the name given to where the borders of Laos, Thailand, and Myanmar intersect, and relax during a boat ride on the Khong River.

After a short stop at the Hall of Opium, return to your Chiang Mai hotel.
