Chiangrai – located about 125 miles to the North East of Chiangmai lies perhaps Thailand’s most overlooked city and province – Chiangrai. Little has changed here in the 12 years we have been taking visitors there. Chiangrai has a great climate and is the perfect base for visiting around the Golden Triangle and playing golf at 2 of Thailand’s top courses. There are 3 ways to get to Chiangrai from Chiangmai. The quick route through the mountains, this takes about 150 minutes, good roads most of the way, great scenery. The adventurous route, through Mae Rim up to Fang and then down by boat towards Chiangrai. Finally we have the Lampang route, via the historic town of Lampang, through Ngao and then stop at the Lake at Payao; before driving through Pan into Chiangrai.
