Traveling Thailand’s Chiang Rai Area: Sustainable Tourism & The Golden Triangle

Apr 19, 2024

Thailand transformed its part of the Golden Triangle from a center of illicit opium trade to one of the world’s leading sustainable tourism locations. Ever Wonder Adventure explains you can explore its many attractions.

From Chiang Rai To Luang Prabang

One of the most rewarding aspects of travel is encountering different cultures, something that mass tourism almost never provides. Ever Wonder Adventure explains how, with a short flight from Bangkok to Chiang Rai, you can discover a huge variety of local experiences.

Chiang Rai is the gateway to the Golden Triangle and the Mekong River that meanders its way through the heart of the region. This new guide explains all you need to know, and a purchase from their merch store will support more in-depth pieces in the future.

Sustainable tourism promotes protection of the natural environment, as well as ensuring that local communities are the main beneficiaries. As such, Ever Wonder Adventure developed this guide to promote the initiatives now being implemented in the wider Golden Triangle region.

“An eco-adventure in the Golden Triangle is not just a trip, it's a life-changing experience that will enrich your soul and broaden your understanding of the world,” a company representative explained. “If you're looking for an adventure that combines natural beauty, cultural richness, and ethical tourism, then you’ll find all the details you need in our latest guide.”

From Illicit to Ethical

Most often associated with northern Thailand, the Golden Triangle actually straddles an area of around 77,000 sq mi (200,000 sq km) that includes parts of Thailand, Myanmar, and Laos. The region has long been linked to the opium trade, which continues to this day, although efforts in northern Thailand have succeeded in replacing it with ethical crops and tourism.

The new guide from Ever Wonder Adventure highlights the diverse range of attractions that you can explore, including the Mekong River, Luang Prabang, and the UNESCO World Heritage town Pakbeng.
