Chiang Saen to the Golden triangle

IMG_7788

On my second day I decided to head north on my motor bike. The route would take me to Chian Sean right on the Laos border, then up to the Golden triangle where Laos, Thailand and Myanmar all meet on the river. I then followed the road further to the West to Mae Sai to head back to Chiang Rai.

Chiang Sean is the birth place of the Lanna kingdom. It was here that the emerald Buddha started its journey from here to Chian Rai to Chain Mai and now is housed at the royal palace in Bangkok

Wat Pa Sak stand next to the walled city, a moat surrounds the original city. It’s all ruins now but you can imagine it once as a magnificent kingdom
