Visit Chiang Rai province, northernmost province of Thailand bordering Myanmer and Laos, and enjoy with the northern Thai culture, history, food, people, etc..
The 4th Thai-Lao friendship bridge was opened for tourists on Dec 12, 2013.
Instead of taking a small uncomfortable boat to cross the Mekong River between Chiang Khong, Thailand and Huay Xai, Laos, it is now so easy to cross it on the new bridge, the 4th Thai-Lao friendship bridge. All foreigners are required to do the border crossing formalities at the new bridge.
