Hall of Opium Museum Tours

Set at the intersection of Thailand, Laos and Burma (Myanmar) known as the “Golden Triangle,” the Hall of Opium Museum seeks to inform its visitors about the history and effects of the opium seed. 

The Golden Triangle area is historically well-known for its role in the growth and distribution of opium. Tracing from its first use over 5,000 years ago to current abuse and addiction issues, learn about the opium trade’s past and present both in this area and worldwide. There are several educational multimedia exhibitions throughout, including ones on the process of production and the dangers of consumption. Walk through a dark tunnel to a flowerbed of poppies, the plant from which opium is derived, to enter.

Practical Info

The Hall of Opium is located about four miles from the town of Chiang Saen in the Golden Triangle Park, opposite the Anatara Hotel. It is open daily from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. but is closed on Mondays. Admission costs 200 Thai Baht.
