This one-day Chiang Rai tour will take you to several spots in- and around. You’ll visit the famous White Temple, the Black House, The Golden Triangle, Long Neck village and take a boat trip on the Mekong river.
The White Temple or Wat Rong Khun is unique in the sense that this modern temple was designed and built by artist Chaloemchai Khositphiphat. Started in 1998, the project is ongoing, and never really finished. A beautiful white ordination hall (Phra Ubosot) is decorated with silver glittering pieces of mirrors. There are large mural paintings of the Lord Buddha in different gestures. If you think the pictures looked spectacular, wait until you see the real thing.
Baan dam Museum (Black house) created by Thailand national artist Thawan Duchanee, is a black houses made of wood, glass, concrete, bricks, or terracotta in various unique styles and design scattered around the temple area. The cluster of houses accommodates Thawan’s collections of paintings, sculptures, animal bones, skins, horns, and silver and gold items from around the world. Several of the houses exhibit Balinese and Burmese art, dating back to the Ayutthaya Period
During your Chiang Rai tour you will also visit the Golden Triangle, where Thailand, Laos and Myanmar meet. Take in the views over the mighty Mekong river and float into Laos by boat. You are also going to visit the famous long neck Hilltribe Village.
