In a remote northern corner of Thailand lies the ancient town of Chiang Saen. Nestled on the banks of the Mekong River, it is a stone’s throw away from Myanmar and Laos. For hundreds of years, the only way to travel to this mysterious Golden Triangle region was via longtail riverboat down the Mekong or by elephant! Thankfully, with a growing number of air connections Chiang Saen is now easily accessible.
