Near the summit of Doi Suthep, a 5300 feet peak named after the hermit Sudeva who lived on the mountain's slopes for many years, is the 600 year old temple of Wat Phrathat Doi Suthep.</p>
Travel with a private guide from Chiang Rai to the Golden Triangle region, visiting hill tribe villages and historical towns before crossing the border into Laos via the Fourth Thai–Lao Friendship Bridge, which spans the Mekong River. Enjoy great photo ops at the tripoint border where Thailand, Laos and Myanmar meet, see 13th-century Lanna ruins in Chiang Saen, stop for a Thai lunch in Chiang Khong, and visit a village and market in Laos. With the assistance of your private guide, you're sure to enjoy a fascinating day out.
