Chiang Mai’s smaller town cousin, Chiang Rai is best known for its unusual and dazzling White Temple and other impressive Lanna-style temples, art galleries, national parks, waterfalls, caves, ethnic hill tribes, and for being the gateway to the historically infamous Golden Triangle and beautiful Halong Bay. There are many things to do in Chiang Rai and although you can see a few popular attractions in a day trip from Chiang Mai, it is worthwhile staying a few days so you can explore and enjoy the region more thoroughly. Northern Thailand is worlds apart from Southern Thailand in terms of landscapes and culture so spend some time soaking in the charms of this fascinating and beautiful region.
