Chiang Mai and neighbouring Chiang Rai are well worth a visit after the buzz of Bangkok, to wander around the temples and old town of Chiang Mai and go trekking in the jungle of remote Chiang Rai. The city of Chiang Mai, capital of the eponymous province which borders Burma to the north, has a rich cultural heritage, with a striking mountain backdrop. That mountainous countryside around the city adds another angle to Chiang Mai holidays,
with the Chiang Rai region mainly comprised of jungle and mountain ranges which are home to some of Thailand's distinctive hill tribes and superb trekking trails. Chiang Rai's 'Golden Triangle' is a particularly remote area, where the borders of Thailand, Laos and Burma converge. It was once notorious for its connection to the opium trade, but the Thai portion of the area has now been transformed, making Golden Triangle holidays another chance to explore this wild and beautiful destination.
