Co-Pilot hits 3 nations in a day (Part 1 of 2)
Just returned from another trip to South-east Asia and this time, I took the opportunity to visit the city of Chiang Rai in northern Thailand. The resort I stayed in was located about 50 minutes from the city itself and was just a wonderful place to get away from it all. The view from my balcony never seemed to get old as I sat there each morning sipping on a cup of coffee while taking in the fresh mountain air.
Decided to visit a nearby tea farm known for its oolong tea.
Also stopped by a strawberry farm to learn of the numerous varieties being grown there.
My location put me close to the Golden Triangle - the confluence of the Mekong River and the Ruak River, where Thailand, Myanmar and Laos intersects.
It wasn't too long before I was on a chartered boat heading towards Myanmar.
