Only about three hours from Chiang Mai, Chiang Rai is one of the most beautiful cities in Thailand with both nature and culture. We'll start at White Temple, which symbolizes Buddhist heaven. Then let's have Northern Thai-style lunch at a local's favorite restaurant. After that, we'll go to Doi Tung Development Project, an area aimed to preserve nature and better the lives of local hill tribes. From flower garden to Tree Top Walk and visiting Akha people, Doi Tung Development Project is a great place where you can enjoy nature and learn about a local way of life through a new perspective.
