Chiang Rai Travel Guide

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).
