This was Asia’s opium producing region. This Mekong river flows through three nations, Thailand Myanmar and Laos. Today we will be researching the items do and to see in the Golden Triangle.

Our journey starts at the treasure ship where a golden Buddha sits. From here you may take a boat ride to visit Myanmar and Done Sao at Laos’ island. No visa is required to take the visit to Laos. It is snake whisky and a little market town that sells souvenirs. Remember you aren’t allowed to join Laos’ remainder from here without a visa.

This museum was created by her imperial highness the princess mum in order to teach the public regarding its uses during the centuries, the history of opium and the way it played a massive part. It is one of the best museums in the country and it’s a must see when you visit the triangle.

The Golden Triangle makes for a simple day trip if you are visiting Chiang Rai and it’s just a 90-minute drive northwest. I trust you enjoyed the Golden Triangle!
