Chiang Rai Attractions
Chiang Rai is a hotspot for travellers who want to get a real cultural experience during their stay in Thailand. Chiang Rai's attractions boast some of the most beautiful temples in Thailand, such the stunning white temple of Wat Rong Khun and Wat Phra That Doi Chom Thong which houses the oldest Holy Relic in Thailand. In tribute to its local people, the Hilltribe Museum and Cultural Centre gives visitors an interesting introduction to the ancient way of life of the Lisu Hill Tribes, who have inhabited Thailand's northern regions since migrating from regions in Tibet and Burma.
