Description
Your one day adventure will begin at Mae Khachan Hot Springs. Guests can sit and put their feet in the hot springs for a relaxing time before heading to Wat Rong Khun better known as the “White Temple”. Then we make our way to the infamous Golden Triangle that use to be one of Asia's two main opium-producing areas. It is an area of around 950,000 square km that overlaps the mountains of three countries of Southeast Asia: Myanmar, Laos, and Thailand. Visitors will be able to explore the borders of Laos, Myanmar before heading to the Karen Market. 

Myanmar, Laos and Thailand. Opium production has been illegal in Thailand since 1959, thanks to a highly successful crop substitution program undertaken by the Royal Projects Foundation established by the late King, His Majesty King Bhumibol. Opium production has largely been eliminated in Thailand;however, across the border in Burma, the Shan United Army, which has been fighting the central Burmese government for an independent Shan state, has been accused of funding its war through the sale of opium and heroin.
Many tourists flock to the Golden Triangle region of Thailand expecting some sort of 'wild west' scene but will be certainly disappointed when they see that the area of the former triangle is full of small quiet villages. The area is full of beautiful natural scenery and ancient temples.
The typical sights on a golden triangle tour are the town of Mai Sai, where you can even cross into Burma for some shopping; the small village of Sop Ruak, where the Ruak and Mekhong rivers meet, forming the borders of three countries; and finally the ancient city of Chiang Saen.
 
Laos Border- Laos is an independent republic, and a landlocked nation in Southeast Asia, northeast of Thailand, west of Vietnam. It covers 236,800 square kilometers in the center of the Southeast Asian peninsula and it is surrounded by Burma (Myanmar), Cambodia, China, Thailand, and Vietnam. About seventy percent of its geographic area is made up of mountain ranges, highlands, plateaus, and rivers cut through.
Its location has often made it a buffer between more powerful neighboring states, as well as a crossroads for trade and communication. Migration and international conflict have contributed to the present ethnic composition of the country and to the geographic distribution of its ethnic groups. Visitors will get to see and feel the different cultures that dwell there. 
 
Mae Sai is located in Thailand’s northernmost town can appear to be little more than a large open-air market. But Mae Sai serves as a convenient base for exploring the Golden Triangle and Mae Salong, and its position across from Myanmar also makes it a jumping-off point for those wishing to explore some of the more remote parts of Shan State. Mae Sai is the border of Myanmar and Thailand. Due to occasional fighting within Myanmar or disputes between the Thai and Myanmar governments, sometimes the border can be closed temporarily, it’s always a good idea to check the current situation before travelling to Mae Sai.
Along the border there are many hill tribes that live along the Mae Sai including the Karen Tribe. Visitors will be able to explore the Karen Village to see how these indigenous people live and work as well as shop at the Karen Market. The Karen Tribe is known for their handcrafted items such as hats, clothing, jewelry, and many more.​

不枉此行

白庙是清莱最大的招牌,只能用震撼来形容,虽然往返六个小时的路程实在艰辛,但却是值得的!当然游人也是不少的……

温泉白庙是重点

第一站就是泡温泉(笑哭),大热天泡脚,泡到全身汗,我们还好,水温感觉还行。在十点左右司机会把你送到白庙,远眺白庙,洁白如雪,宛如圣洁的天堂伫立在水面,在蓝天白云的衬托下,耀眼的白庙和她在水中的倒影仿佛是伊甸园的画面。在这之后的景点基本就没啥意思了,看看就行了。

就是来看白庙的

白庙给我的感觉就是晃眼,呵呵,上午去的时候太阳大,抬头看着白庙都快被边上镶的银条把眼睛都晃瞎了,特别注意的是,在白庙的室内参观的时候是不能照相哦,要尊重当地的规矩哦。非常值得去看的地方。
