Doi Mae Salong, Chiang Rai

(4.2/5 based on 500+ reviews on the web)
Delve into a unique cultural experience surrounded by gorgeous mountains at Doi Mae Salong. Originally settled by Chinese refugees after the establishment of Communist rule, the community is now a bubble of Chinese language and customs in Thailand. Visit to see the tea plantations and buy oolong tea for souvenirs, and learn the area’s history at the tomb of General Tuan, a mausoleum of the community’s founder. Speaking Thai here will not be too helpful, but many popular attractions and tours offer English. With our international travel planner, Chiang Rai attractions like Doi Mae Salong can be center stage of your vacation plans, and you can find out about other attractions like it, unlike it, near it, and miles away.

  • Beautiful rolling landscape with many tea-plantations and views of tropical rainforest, which is what you can expect here. This trip is almost always oogenomen in day trips to the Golden Triangle. It is easy to hire a taxi for a day part and on your own to explore this area.

  • We took this trip to our hotel (quite expensive), but we wanted to see the scenery around Mae Salong. We found this extraordinary. Actually that climbs, it turns, but it feels good to be away from the city and our guide told us many things. We did a tasting tea with a small very nice granny. If you want to stop prices range from 350 to 700 B bags. Then we continued up to the place with the effigy of the great mother of the current King (it is not a temple, but there is so much respect)

  • Stopped at 2 nights and have not regretted. Drinking tea, enjoyed the views climbed to the temple. Tea bought on the market, and in tea houses. In the market for cheaper, but not all proved to be of good quality.
