If you are planning to have a trip to south-east Asia for holiday either alone, as a couple or with group, I would suggest ‘Golden Triangle’ which is a must-see destination in the region.
History of Golden Triangle
Golden Triangle is a famous sightseeing tourist attraction place in south-east Asia. It is located right in the middle of the border of Republic of Laos, Myanmar and Thailand. In the past, it is well-known for drug trafficking like the major opium production until the authority wiped them all out and turn it into a natural park for visitor. In the modern day, this area has became a popular attraction for foreign and local tourists. The government of Laos has established this place as special economic zone. There are people from all over the world are coming to visit and spend their vacation at the golden triangle.
The Modern Golden Triangle
Since the area is in between Laos, Burma (Myanmar) and Thailand. You can spend half of the day visiting three countries simultaneously by crossing the borders. You can cross the border by boat or punt. There is a jet boat available for service at the river. It cost less than $15 to get you across.
There are many 5 stars hotel and resorts, casinos and adult entertainment facilities being set up within the Golden Triangle to serve many tourists from all over the world. It is an extremely safe place to visit in south-east Asia nowaday.
The House of Opium Museum is located in Chiang Saen, Thailand near along the mekong river. It is a worthwhile visit for education purpose especially in learning the history of golden triangle and opium flower production if you want to learn about the story and facts. There are also many artifacts leftover from the past such as smoking pipe, scales, weights and many things that related to opium. The entire visit should take you 40 minutes to finish the tour of the museum.
There a market on the Laos border, you will need a tour guide or host to bring you there so visa and immigration paper work is not a requirement. Goods that you will find there are mostly from Laos and Myanmar.
