very nice and tiring whole day tour. recommended to get with both the boat ride with long neck village to avoid disappointment :)
The tour guide Annie was very fun and a highlight in the trip. The total drive from Chiang Mai to Golden Triangle is around 4h, so be prepared and put on comfy clothes as you'll spend most of your time on the road. The White Temple was stunning and we wish we could stay there longer to see more. The Long Neck Village was quite pretty but it is overtly touristy.The Golden Triangle boat cruise was pretty interesting. However there was nothing much to see on the Laos island other than cheap Thai and Chinese products. All in all, it is a nice trip for those who do not have time to travel to Chiang Rai but want to see the major touristy spots there.
We enjoyed the tour itinerary. Getting to see and visit Laos, and to taste the secret exotic recipe of whisky for "free". However, it's too rush. Tour guide wasn't what I expected to be. Not as bubbly and talkative, very brief introduction of place, unlike another group tour, introduce much more about Chiang Mai. Lunch is too late, at 2.30pm, with few selection(buffet style). Journey back from chiangrai took 4 hours. Left Chiang Mai at 8.30am as there's total 11pax to pick up.
