Chiang Rai is Thailand’s northernmost province, one that is steeped in so much nature and culture. Most travelers often treat it as their last stop in the country, or take a day trip from Chiang Mai to see the famous White Temple. But Chiang Rai has so much more to offer than meets the eye, so your best bet is to stick around for a few days and explore.
The mountainous area of northern Thailand has tons of waterfalls, but don’t forget to check out Khun Korn, perhaps the most majestic in the area. Walk around the night markets and get your fill of delicious, affordable local cuisine. Visit the breathtaking Choui Fong Tea Plantation, a tea farm surrounded by pineapple plantations. Get a tour of the tea factory and learn about the ancient tea-making techniques of the Thais.
South of the Clock Tower is a 300-meter stretch of road that’s filled with bars, perfect for having some fun after sunset. Getting your boozy fix is cheap here, so you won’t break the bank when you want to knock back a few Singha beers or tequila shots.
The race will take place from October 18-20, 2019.
