Chiang Rai is located in far northern Thailand, near the border with Laos and Burma.

Like Chiang Mai to the west (and sometimes confused with it), it has many temples set in scenic valley.

It is also an important hub for hill tribe trekking in a region that extends west to Mae Hong Son.

Overall Atmosphere: Combination
Combination Atmosphere destinations combine elements of both cultural and natural destinations, where this combination is itself essential to the travel experience. Common examples are Archaeological Sites (where culture is usually experienced outdoors), Scenic Local Markets (where indigenous cultures interact outdoors), Hotsprings and Vineyard Areas (where nature provides the raw materials but humans create the surroundings), and Unique Cultural Landscapes (where humans and nature interact in innovative ways, as in the elaborate rice terracing systems of Asia).

Combination Interests typically fall somewhere in the middle of the three types of primary interests in terms of
(a) how climate-dependent they are
(b) how accessible and physically demanding they are.
Featuring both cultural and natural attractions.

Hilltribe Villages

There are roughly a dozen distinct hilltribe groups in Thailand, most of which live in northern Thailand and play an important part in the cultural tapestry of the hills that dominate the region. Visiting hilltribe villages as part of a trek or tour, is a popular activity in Chiang Mai although most within 1-2 days travel of Chiang Mai are likely to be touristic. Those seeking a more authentic experience need to hike a few more days to get further from the city.
Natural
Lowland Mountains
The entire northern region of Thailand is made of hills. This is the land of the hilltribes, and increasingly of sizeable cities such as Chiang Mai and Chiang Rai. The hills help to separate areas from each other, but they also mean that hiking in the region invariably involves lots of ups and downs.
