Doi Pha Tang and Phu Chi Fa in Chiang Rai

Traveling in North Thailand

At about 1600m above sea-level on top of the mountain range in Chiang Rai province (North Thailand) between Laos and Thailand are 2 main tourist attraction.  First Doi Pha Tang with Pha Bong viewpoint. And about 20 km south is Phu Chi Fa with a stunning viewpoint over Laos and famous as place to see the sunrise over Laos. In the cool season this is a top tourist attraction for Thai tourists. On busy mornings you will have to take (and pay) for an pickup-truck starting at the main road to bring you to the parking just before the view-point.  From the parking place there is a short walking trail up to the viewpoint. Nearby is accommodation the the form of hotels and camping. This place is best reached by private transport (car or motorbike).
