We went on the Golden Triangle Tour from Chiang Rai (4 hour tour). Stopped at several interesting temples enroute. However part of the focus was going to an island between Thailand and Laos. This island is set up to sell 'stuff' to tourists. I am not a shopper and found nothing worthwhile in seeing the shirts, handbags and junk souvenirs. The boat ride on the Mekong River to and from the island was enjoyable.
We did see from the overlook a peek of Myanmar (Burma) and Laos to the North but not very impressive. Unless you need to say I was in Laos (the island), if you are short on time I would carefully consider this outing for cost and use of your time.
