Путеводитель по провинции Чианграй
Чианграй (เมืองเชียงราย) расположена в 785 километрах от Бангкок, эато самая северная провинция Таиланда, где находятся живописные горы, водопады, горячие источники, плодородные речные долины, пещеры, живописные деревни этнических племён и многое другое. Чианграй стал домом для каренов, мяо, акха, лису, и лаху. Волею судеб Чианграй является центром знаменитого "Золотого треугольника" в котором на берегу Меконга сходятся Мьянма, Лаос и Таиланд. Несмотря на устоявшиеся стереотипы, этот регион славится отнюдь не в качестве столицы наркомафии. Этот край, где смыкаются традиции и история многих народов, стал культурной и исторической сокровищницей Таиланда. В числе колоритных и необычных достопримечательностей следует назвать деревни горных племён, Ват Пхратхатдойтанг, музеи, древний город-государство Чиангсен, крупный культурный и исследовательский центр наследия государства Ланна.
