Visiting Doi Pha Tang and Phu Chi Fa in Chiang Rai

Traveling in North Thailand

Reposting from 2018. At about 1600m above sea-level on top of the mountain range in Chiang Rai province between Laos and Thailand are 2 stunning viewpoints.  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 are hotels and campings. This place is best reached by private transport (car or motorbike).

The World Is My Oyster

The journey of Traveling 2 Thailand did begin with One Night in Bangkok in 1985 and since 2009 it became a personal non-commercial travel blog as inspiration for traveling & motorbike riding in Thailand. Made just for the sheer love of traveling and sharing experience about traveling in South-East Asia. To travel beyond the beaten track & highlights. Enjoy!
