2 Days Tour - “The Chiang Rai Loop”

If you have only a short vacation this tour is designed to give you an experience that you will not forget and hopefully will inspire you to make a longer tour next time. The first landmark is the Wat Thaton temple, a magnificent crystal pagoda with an attractive location just a few kilometers away from the border to Myanmar. Once in Chiang Rai there is time to explore this laid back town, visit the night market or just relax by the hotel. During the next day we will take another route back to Chiang Mai. We visit Wat Rong Khun (White Temple), which is today recognized as one of the main attractions all over Thailand.
