Chiang Rai

(3.5/5 based on 12,000+ reviews for top 30 attractions)
Things to do: religious sites, sightseeing, museums
Enjoy a cultural and relaxing vacation in Chiang Rai, the capital city of an eponymous province. Visit museums detailing the history of the region and the heritage of the various hill tribes that make up over a tenth of the area's population. Ornate temples portray a singularly Northern Thai aesthetic and offer interesting sightseeing locations in the main urban area. The landscape itself--a section of what is known as the "Golden Triangle"--contains fertile agricultural land, rolling foothills, mountains, and forests, providing ample room for a wealth of activities, like cycling, rock climbing, and hiking. Plan your holiday in Chiang Rai and other destinations, from the rural, to the urban, and everything in between, using our Thailand family vacation planner.
