Overview
Thailand’s Golden Triangle—the meeting point of Thailand, Myanmar, and Laos—is known for its many ethnic minority villages. On this tour, immerse yourself in local culture and learn about the unique traditions of the Yao and Akha people as you visit the highland villages and local markets. Along the way, visit the Opium Museum to learn more about the region’s opium trade, stop in historic Chiang Saen, and admire views along the Mekong River.
