A long day out but very interesting. Of special interest was the White Temple and Chiang Rai. Good views of the Mekong at the Golden Triangle.

Chiang Rai and Golden Triangle Full Day Tour from Chiang Mai
Pick up from our hotel was on time and luckily there were only 2 other people on the tour as a second couple cancelled. The group would have been only 9 people max anyway so a good small number.
Our guide was friendly, polite and knowledgeable

The white temple is definitely impressive and we got lots of good information about the building of it and its history. We passed though the art museum pretty quickly, but were not too concerned about that.
Choice of Karen Long neck village or Blue temple we chose the blue temple and werent disappointed, it was beautiful and our guide again was knowledgeable about the temple artwork and history

Border with Myanmar
A short stop for a few pics at the most northern most part of Thailand and the Myanmar border then a chance to shop in the jade markets

Laos Additional 1000B
This included a short trip into the actual triangle on a speedboat, a 30 min stop in Laos additional 50B payable on landing in Laos to walk around the market and local houses
Worth doing, even if its just to see the Serpent Whiskey you can try a little if youre brave its bad
Beware: You will have to leave your passport on the Thai side where they will also photocopy the photo page this is a security measure apparently in case people dont come back - so if you at all concerned about leaving your passport there, dont do this part of the trip

Info:
This is a marathon of a day so if you have small kids avoid it. We were picked up at 7 am and got back at 9.15pm. Really enjoyed it and got to see so much on this tour
Price was appropriate.
Lunch was buffet and no issues

Great tour - highly recommended. This is a LONG tour, c. 14 hours, so you need to be prepared! But my wife and I thoroughly enjoyed it.
The opportunity to get a flavour of what northern Thailand is about was met by this trip, being able to watch the changing countryside from rolling, high hills to flat and wet paddy fields, and the amazing variety of fruits and vegetables produced and sold on the roadside in this luscious area. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and helpful, and keen to point out things of note en route.
Stops for the Hot Springs, White Temple amazing!, lunch, and the Thai/Burma border were of great interest, though the stop for the hill tribes did leave us feeling somewhat voyeuristic.
Top of the bill for me, though, was the Golden Triangle viewpoint looking out over the Mekong to Laos and Burma - stunning in the late evening sunlight. It certainly made the 3.5 hour drive back - mainly in the dark - very worthwhile.
Highly recommended .... but not for boisterous kids!

Vich is the best tour guide same as the driver. We are well taken care. They are both helpful and Vich explains everything in detail. We enjoy the trip very much.

We had a great day! Very comfortable van picked us up early, and we headed north. It was amazing just driving through the country side, which soon became rice fields and ever larger hills. After a short stop at the hot springs we arrived at The White Temple, which was stunning! We headed further north after driving through Chiang Rai, eventually arriving at a hill tribe village. What an experience you will REALLY appreciate the comforts of your own home after witnessing the lives the people there lead. We saw a village dance ceremony, and were able to talk communicate with some of the very gracious people there, as well as help them out by buying some of their crafts.
After that, we had a lunch at an open air restaurant over looking the Mekong River and Laos, we proceeded a short distance to an overlook to view the Golden Triangle, and visited the Hall of Opium museum. We opted not to cross the river on a boat. The museum was helpful tying in the past history of the Golden Triangle. We headed back after a long day with great memories and photos. Just the drive itself, seeing the rice fields and life in the north was fascinating.

Really great day, only 2 on the trip so could go at our own pace. Able to go across to Laos, lost propellor on way back, stranded for a while middle of Mekong, extra adventure! Long day but worth it

We had a fantastic time! Our guide Makee and driver Bomie were great and very accommodating. We saw many amazing things and they were able to change the plan and see the hill tribe villages instead of boat trip to Laos. Everything was included that they promised, including lunch.

This was an excellent day tour. Great guide and drivers. Van was very comfortable and we were the only 2 on it. Roads were good and a lot was packed into the day.

It was a great tour. The tour guide was wonderful and knowledgeable. The tour allowed you to see so much in one day, including a visit to Laos.

A very full day but well worth it. Particularly enjoyed the added bit of seeing the long necked tribe.

Very informative private tour! The tour guide is extremely friendly and is very concerned with you receiving the best experience from the golden triangle area. The tour is a very long day so it is mostly for those who have a short time to visit north Thailand but let me reassure you most definitely will have enough time to catch most, if not all, of the marvels it has to offer. Highly recommend !

Got picked up from our hotel on time and we were the only passengers so the tour guide gave us other options to add to our tour which was great, got to see so much country side and the long neck tribe village, the white temple, the golden triangle and up to the Burmese border, great day! Well worth

We were blessed that we were the only two on the tour, so we could tweak for what we preferred - ie we added the boat to Laos at Mekong River rather than the village tribes, as had done that before on a hike during previous visit. Excellent day ... very full but not "too long". The drive was full of great views and commentary when required, quiet time when needed. The whole itinerary was superb and rewarding.

Trip very well organized, just as advertised.
For those who have more time, I would consider sleeping in Chiang Rai as it is a long trip.

Very cool tour...opted to go into Myanmar (another passport stamp) and I know that stretched the day a bit more, but our guide Meow was more than happy to accomodate us.
