In truth, the merging point of three nations - Laos, Burma and Thailand is nothing special, yet it attracts thousands of tourists each day to take pictures beside one of the many signboards that read "Golden Triangle." This zone was also once world-famous for its notorious drug trafficking, as there used to be many opium fields around here. However, the local people now sell mostly souvenirs and handicrafts displayed in small shops lined along the main road. The lush green hills and the rivers converging add to the natural charm and beauty of this area.
From the Golden Triangle, you can take a 2 hour boat ride which includes a short stop at a Laos village. Laos visa is issued on the spot at a cost of Baht 20. The Loatian stop provides a good photo opportunity of a small Laos village.
From the Golden Triangle, you should also visit the border with Mynamar, which is the Northernmost point of Thailand. It is a short bus ride from the Golden Triangle. It is a busy border crossing and there are numerous market stalls for one to browse to your heart's delight.
