Overview
Most visitors to Thailand are happy to spend most or all of their holiday relaxing at one of the host of beautiful beach resorts that have made the country so popular. But there is so much to see and do at this exotic destination and this short tour up to the Golden Triangle area, which can be combined with a stay in the capital Bangkok, really gives you a genuine feel for life in south east Asia.
Day 1
Bangkok to Phitsanuloke
Your tour begins when you leave Bangkok and head north to Uthai Thani, a small town on the Sakaekrang River, rarely visited by foreign tourists. Here you see Wat Chantaram, an impressive temple with Crystal Hall and a Golden Grand shrine. Lunch will be at riverside restaurant and in the afternoon drive further north to Phitsanuloke, a major regional commercial centre, spread along the banks of the Nan River. Visit the shrine of Wat Mahathat, which is home to Thailand’s most beautiful Buddha image. Dinner tonight is at your hotel.

Then you continue on through beautiful mountain scenery, to Chiang Rai via Wiang Pa Pao with a stop for lunch en-route. Dinner tonight is at your hotel in Chiang Rai.
