The Golden Triangle is a triangle in the border areas of Thailand, Myanmar and Laos in Southeast Asia. You can often hear the term on TV. The Mekong River is another important geographic reason for the formation of the Golden Triangle. It flows southward from Qinghai in Northwest China, through six countries: China, Laos, Myanmar, Thailand, Vietnam and Cambodia. We booked a day's Tour online in advance, arrived in the Golden Triangle in the afternoon, and went to Laos by boat after a short stay. Listening to the names, we felt hesitant. We watched a lot of Ha-ha TV dramas.
When we visited Thailand, we came to the Golden Triangle, where there are many souvenir shops, restaurants and so on. We took a boat trip to the Golden Triangle and listened to the tour guide tell us about the historical changes of the area. Later, we landed on the island of Daonsao in Laos. However, the island is a bit too sightseeing, no imaginary sense of seeing the real side of Laos.
It's worth walking along the border through an ancient city with a history of 1600 years. The riverside scenery is good. It's opposite Myanmar. Some landmark Buddha statues and Golden Triangle landmarks can be seen on the top of the mountain free of charge. Everything is cheap. Many foreigners live here often.
When we come to Qinglai, how can we not have a look at the Golden Triangle, which has long been known to us? Boat cruise on the Mekong River [leisurely] at the junction of Thailand, Myanmar and Laos, the scenery is beautiful! It's also excellent to see how well the three countries have developed.
you never been to chiangrai if you dont make a tripto the golden triangle. do gisit their opium museum which is at the border too.
The five pictures uploaded are out of reach of all passengers and can only be seen when they enter the Golden Triangle Special Zone. Passengers coming by boat from Qingsheng or Qinglai can only go to Jinkamian Island for sightseeing and shopping. Although there are not many things for sale, there are a few that can be bought back: Lao medicine wine, face painting made of grass and wood powder, handicraft, local tobacco. If you buy it, cut the price directly to 1/3. If you can't, just switch to another store. Conditions can come to the Special Zone to see, more abundant than outside!
We would not dare to go to the Golden Triangle cruise boat if we were not accompanied by a local guide. When you come to the dock, you need to apply for a temporary visa. In fact, you just pay some money and stamp your passport. The tour guide will help you with all this. There weren't many people on the cruise ship. We paid two people's tickets and chartered a boat. About 15 minutes upstream of the Mekong River, and then boarded Kapok Island opposite Laos. The island has a beautiful view, full of kapok, but after landing on the island, it was shocked. It sells all fake and inferior goods, and many of them are made in China. I don't know whether it's funny or angry. In fact, today's Golden Triangle travel is very safe, don't worry.
