What You Can Expect

Mae Sai and Mae Salong Day Trip from Chiang Rai

Local Children

Get picked up in the morning from your hotel in a private vehicle. You’ll continue up into the hill country outside Chiang Rai, arriving at your first stop in the Lisu hill tribe village of Ban Mae Kaotom.

After interacting with the villagers and learning about the daily rhythms of hill tribe life, continue to the village of Mae Chan, where you can learn about the Akha and Yao tribes that also populate the area. Then take a short break before proceeding to Doi Mae Salong, a mountain overlook near the Thai-Myanmar border that offers stunning scenery and a view of the Mekong Valley down below. Those guests on the half-trip will end their trip here with a return to Chiang Rai.

As you continue your excursion, you’ll enjoy a lunch at Mae Salong Villa before heading to the northern-most site along the Thai-Myanmar. Shop for souvenirs and then begin your trip back to Chiang Rai, making a short pit stop at a Jade-cutting factory while en route.

1 star rating: I do not recommend this June 2016

The guide showed up late, didn't have an itinerary, barely spoke English and was from a town 3 hours a away so was pushing to finish early. They didn't know lunch was included so had to call their office. Don't take this tour!!
