Our first destination is Chiang Rai’s most marvelous temple, Wat Rong Khun, also known as the White Temple. You can witness the stunning beauty of this cultural wonder before we head towards our next checkpoint.
The journey continues towards Baan Dam, more commonly known as the Black House. This structure is a true representation of Chiang Rai’s intricate architecture, built with immense creativity and a number of different materials. Inside, you will notice various artworks that adorn Thawan Duchanee’s masterpiece.
We will stop for lunch and once everyone has enjoyed the local cuisine, you will be taken to the King Mother’s palace, Doi Tung. Its surrounding flower garden is absolutely stunning, and allows for an amazing photo opportunity.
Our final destination for the day will be Doi Mae Salong, a mountain rising 1,500 meters above sea level. The peak here gifts its visitors with a gorgeous viewpoint, and you’ll be able to enjoy a fantastic view of the Chiang Rai sunset. We will provide accommodations for you at the mountain’s Flower Hill Resort, where you will stay overnight to fully experience Doi Mae Sa Long.

In the morning, the mountain range fills with mist that provides a unique experience for its visitors.
We continue the tour as we head towards the tea plantation, where Sakura flowers fill the ground during the colder months. From here, we take a short drive to the Long Neck village.
