The Hall of Opium Ban Saeo Chiang Rai Thailand
One of the many attractions of the Golden Triangle area, in the northern region of Thailand, is without a doubt the Hall of Opium, created in 1988 by Princess Mother on her desire to educate people on the background of opium in the Golden Triangle and elsewhere in the world. The Golden Triangle, infamous worldwide for its poppy fields, drug smugglers, and opium warlords. Throughout the three decades, the Golden Triangle supplied most of the world’s heroin. Even today, Myanmar and less so the Laos PDR produce significant amounts of opium. The Hall of Opium was created to help reduce demand through education.

We stayed at The Le – Meridian, which is one of the good hotels in Chiang Mai(highly recommended) and they were nice enough to upgrade us to the mountain view room(Even though there was so much haze the first day ,that there was practically no view )
About Chiang Saen District Chiang Rai Thailand
Get your sweat on: Chiang Saen (3 days. A lot of walking.) A 4 hour drive from the central northern hub, Chiang Mai, will get you to the Golden Triangle. Here you can take a boat trip along the Mekong Delta and pop over to Laos briefly. But since you’re this far up north, you should take a hill tribe trek to see the stunning Thai wilderness and meet hill tribes who still live out in the jungle. Wear grippable shoes, wear long pants as you will be striding through the bush, bring mozzie repellent, a head torch would be great when searching for the loo in the dead of night and be prepared for creepy crawlies. It will be quite hardcore in this heat for those who aren’t particularly fit, but if I can survive it (barely) then you can too!
