Not sure it is really worth the hour plus drive from Chiang Rai to get to the Golden Triangle as really there is not much to see when you get there. Interesting to us having been in all three countries.

sob ruak is the village right at the point where the three countries comes together at the mekong river; the village itself is nondescript other than the river views and the buddha in the boat (it is Big); far far too many souvenir shops, all selling the same stuff; these days the chinese and other foreign tourists are absent so the town is much quieter than the old normal; decent food selections, pizza etc; some western but most are strictly thai; the village is 8 km upstream from chiang saen town

Heard so much of, and taught of in school, of the Golden Triangle. It was an experience to be in the heart of it. Seeing Myanmar to the left and laos to the right separated by the mighty Mekong river. Well worth a visit

Worth a stop and take the boat across to Lao. Yes, it's a tourist trap but the prices are great and I saw and bought items there that I have never seen before or since, such as opium vodka. That stuff will get you talking to the cosmic blueberry muffin. At the top of the mountain is a vista, and again I bought some wonderful cheap and unique clothing there that I am having my company R&D (ripoff & duplicate) for resale in the western hemisphere. Knowing the history of the place does enrich the experience somewhat, such as opium being worth more by weight than gold, but I like any place worth visiting to stand on its own. The Giant Buddha on the Thai side has some great foto ops from the boat. I have been to all 7 continents and all 50 states in the USA, so I prob have no idea what I am talking about jajajajajaaa.
