Chiang Rai offers a unique and budget-friendly experience of Thailand culture. The city in the northernmost part of the country, the side closest to Laos and Burma, may not be as pricey as Bangkok or Phuket, but it is rich with impressive sights to see and cool things to do, offering a great travel experience alright.

With its rich history, from being Mangrai Dynasty’s capital to going under Burmese rule until it was declared a Thailand province in 1933, Chiang Rai presents some significant historical sights worth visiting. But modern-day structures are not to miss, too. Recent developments featuring the homegrown talents that built impressive architecture are drawing crowds, making Wat Ring Khun or the White Temple, Wat Rong Suea Ten or the Blue Temple, and Baan Dam Museum the most popular attractions to date.

Unlike Chiang Mai, Chiang Rai’s airport serves domestic flights from Bangkok. International tourists from Singapore, China, Hongkong, Taiwan, and South Korea who want a faster and easier route to the province go through Chiang Mai International Airport and travel three hours to Chiang Rai.
