The mountainous northern Thai city of Chiang Rai and the surrounding region, which is infamously dubbed the Golden Triangle, promises sights and experiences that will broaden your understanding of what Thailand and Southeast Asia have to offer and an eco-resort or boutique hotel Chiang Rai style is not to be missed. Straddling borders and cultural identities, Chiang Rai is often overlooked in favour of its charming, more well-known sister, Chiang Mai. The city, however, was actually the very first capital of the Lanna Kingdom and now offers unique sites, attractions, restaurants and Chiang Rai luxury hotels to offer to cultured travellers and adventure seekers alike.
Visitors are often drawn to this gem by the allures of the ornate White Temple of Wat Rong Khun, but its ever-increasing cultural attractions demand more than just a day trip. Whether you are heading off into the hills for adventure or winding down after trekking, Chiang Rai’s luxury hotels, eco-resorts and river cruises also offer a welcome chance to rest and indulge.
