Mae Kok River Journey
Cutting through Chiang Rai from west to east, the 130-km long Mae Kok offers a pleasant sightseeing experience.
It originates in Chiang Mai’s northernmost district of Ban Tha Ton and winds through rolling mountains, endless banana groves, ethic hill-tribe communities and natural hot springs. The entire journey from Tha Ton to Chiang Rai takes four hours on a long-tail boat, which you can complete all in one stretch or combine with overnight jungle trekking to visit various ethnic hill-tribes and hot springs. Short boat trips within Chiang Rai can also be arranged for those short on time or prefer to customise the route.
Opening Hours: 06:30 – 16:30 daily
