Doi Mae Salong, Chiang Rai
(4.3/5 based on 460+ 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.

No need to stop at the tourist market to the beginning of the village, except a want to afford one of these big and delicious round Chinese lawyers. Nice walk through the tea plantations.
