Chiang Rai & Golden Triangle in a day

1 review
Go sightseeing in northern Thailand on a full-day tour from Chiang Mai that includes the White Temple (Wat Rong Khun) in Chiang Rai. Stop at Hot Springs Maekasa en route, then continue to the White Temple and Baandam Museum to view work by Thai artists. Head to the Khong River Viewpoint, a Golden Triangle destination where the borders of Myanmar, Laos, and Thailand meet, then return to Chiang Mai.

The bridge connecting Myanmar and Thailand. Nothing much here. But the bridge is very important for people from both country to cross daily either for business or personal matter.

Have crossed this bridge many times, as flying into Mae Sot saves me a nine plus hour road trip from Yangon to Myawaddi. However this time it was chaos. Recent conflict in the northern Shan had close the border crossing at Muse and there were long lines of truck either side of the border waiting to use the border crossing. The crossing from Thailand into Burma usually takes less that 30 mins. The car waits for you to go through Thai immigration then takes you across the friendship bridge to the Burmese immigration post and once through there straight to your hotel. This time the car was stranded on the Thai side and I had to walk across the bridge and then get a motorcycle taxi to the hotel. The taxi and my bags arrived more than 3 hours later. Going back was much smoother as we did it early in the morning.

This place was very interesting to visit and experience the goings on at the border. For someone who lives on an island country land borders are always fascinating. There’s a lot going on around the bridge with the market being the main draw card for visitors. The strip which is kind of “no man’s land” sells all sorts of “duty free” goods including cigarettes and alcohol. Separately there’s a large market with rows of shops selling numerous items including fabric and handicraft. There is ample parking free of charge and you can spend a couple of hours browsing and grabbing some quality bargains.

On our free day we decided to go over the border into Myanmar . The bridge is very busy with huge trucks and streams of folk passing over. You have to leave your passport with the security guard, you get a token with a number on and pay about £15 . I found this disconcerting but all worked well and we had Sunday lunch of rice and kitchen in the riverside hotel in Myawaddy. We wondered around some of the streets and found a small temple . We got our passports back and then joined a longer queue to get back in to Thailand and got let back in. We did it for the experience and another stamp in our passports to show we had been in another country.
