Chiang Rai
Chiang Rai
Chiang Rai is the largest city in Northern Thailand, located at the junction of Thailand, Laos and Myanmar, about 900 kilometers from the capital of Bangkok. The city of Chiang Rai was founded in 1262 by King Mangrai, for whom the city was named. Chiang Rai is a quiet, simple town with beautiful green trees and natural scenery. It is the gateway to the Daen Lao Mountain Range and the borders of Myanmar and Laos, also known as the Golden Triangle where all three countries meet. The area is home to pristine mountain villages, the beautiful Mekong River, as well as the world-famous White Temple (Wat Rong Khun) and Black Temple (Baan Dam).

Village
vivienvivienThe long-necked people in northern Thailand are one of the ethnic minorities on the Thai-Myanmar border. They fleeing the war in Myanmar and flooded into northern Thailand. They mainly settled near Chiang Mai, Chiang Rai and Mae Hong Son. Mae Hong Son is the largest settlement of the long-necked people. Long-necked people live in tall thatched huts. Girls have been winding copper rings around their necks, wrists, knees, etc. since they were 9 years old. The appearance looks like a circle of independent copper rings, but actually a solid copper strip. Yes, the length is changed once every two years, and there is no need to lengthen it until the age of 25 or after marriage. It is said that the copper bar can weigh up to 5 kg. There are many theories about the origin of this custom. Some people say that it is because the long-necked people think that the long neck is beautiful, and some people think that it is to prevent the beasts in the forest from biting.

Singha Park

City Park
D39***25Singha Park is an enormous site encompassing panoramic views, gardens, refreshments, farm produce, tea plantations, lakes, adventure parks a business park and more all rolled into one very well run and perfectly manicured site. We found our way by local taxi from Chiang Rai, used the local farm bus to look around, but there are bikes and e-scooters if you are more energetic. See how blueberries are grown, feed the zebra, sample the local tea, try some great snacks and good coffee, and take home some honey, curry pastes or skin care products. The information desk will provide numbers for taxis to get you back to Chiang Rai. A lovely, relaxing outing.
