Rice and Tree Planting
Learn to cultivate rice the traditional Thai way in the resort paddies. Plant a native tree to help us conserve our beautiful landscape - and we'll place a plaque next to your sapling for you to return to on future visits.
Hall of Opium Museum
As part of your all-inclusive Discovery package, visit the museum opposite the resort, delving into the Golden Triangle's infamous opium past, as well as the alternative livelihood project of the late Princess Mother, now used as a global case study.
Longtail Boat Trip
With one of Asia’s most famous waterways on our doorstep, a journey by private longtail boat is a must. Depart from our jetty on the tranquil Ruak River and onto the mighty Mekong. Drift through the heart of three countries converging to form the Golden Triangle.
Golden Triangle and Sop Ruak
No trip to the Golden Triangle is complete without standing at its heart. Take a private limousine to the riverside, near the point where the Ruak and Mekong Rivers meet. Here, on the Thai bank, a giant golden Buddha, elephant statues, and shrines to the royal family mark the epicentre of a fabled region.
Wat Chedi Luang
The ruins of this Buddhist temple feature an 18-metre octagonal chedi in classic Chiang Saen-Lanna style – giving you an idea of the architectural history from between the 12th and 14th centuries.
Doi Mae Salong
As one of the highest peaks in Chiang Rai, Doi Mae Salong is known for its panoramic views, scenic trekking, Chinese heritage villages and hill tribe communities, as well as tea, coffee and fruit plantations.
Mae Fah Luang & Doi Tung
The Mae Fah Luang Art and Cultural Park features teak pavilions dotted across landscaped gardens, with the region's finest collection of Lanna art on display. Continue onto Doi Tung's Cottage Industries Centre and Outlet, one of the Princess Mother's projects set up to support traditional hill tribe handicrafts.
Baan Dam (Black House Museum)
Chiang Rai's other famous must-see is part art studio, part museum and part home of the visionary contemporary painter, Thawan Duchanee. 25 black pavilions are spread over 100 rai, with fantastical if not outright macabre displays inside.
