Chiang Rai

3.7
Enjoy a cultural and relaxing vacation in Chiang Rai, the capital city of an eponymous province. Visit museums detailing the history of the region and the heritage of the various hill tribes that make up over a tenth of the area's population. Ornate temples portray a singularly Northern Thai aesthetic and offer interesting sightseeing locations in the main urban area. The landscape itself--a section of what is known as the "Golden Triangle"--contains fertile agricultural land, rolling foothills, mountains, and forests, providing ample room for a wealth of activities, like cycling, rock climbing, and hiking. Chiang Rai is in Chiang Rai Province. When using our Thailand trip planner, you're building your holiday based on your own interests, visitor reviews, and the informed opinions of our well-traveled writers.
