Chiang Rai is the main commercial centre serving the Golden Triangle region of Thailand, Myanmar and Laos. It is an excellent base for exploring the region as trekking areas are nearer and more accessible to town. Often compared to Chiang Mai, the city has a more relaxed small-town atmosphere than most other Thai cities, including Chiang Mai. Area attractions, apart from the Golden Triangle are boat excursions on the Kok River, unique temples such as Wat Rong Khun, Wat Phra Kaew and elephant rides all surrounded by nature.
