Discover the darker side of Thailand at Golden Triangle, the historic center of the country's opium trade. From the 1960s until the 1990s, this area produced most of the world's opium supply. Cleaned up and free of drug trade, this is now a favorite place for tourists to visit and learn about former opium production and smuggling. Located in the northern section of Thailand, this area is also home to indigenous tribes, archeological ruins, and scenic nature. To get the most out of your time here, consider a guided tour. Our Chiang Saen trip itinerary maker makes visiting Golden Triangle and other Chiang Saen attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.
