Following the Mekong River in North Thailand

Traveling in North Thailand
The Golden Triangle along the Mekong River in North Thailand

The Mekong River is at 2 parts the border between Thailand and Laos. Photo above is where the Mekong River starts to be the border at Chiang Saen in North Thailand, also infamous called the "Golden Triangle". The photo under is where the Mekong River flows into Laos and stops to be the border between Laos and Thailand. In Laos this creates a weird part of Laos, a kind of peninsular with on the west side a mountain range and border with Thailand (no border crossings) and on the east side the Mekong River (no bridges). I love the Mekong River. There is a kind of military base & police station with a beautiful garden and a Coffee Shop of course. At the end of the road there is a little walking path that will lead you to the real border-line with Laos (or you end-up in Laos).

One night in Bangkok and the world is your 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!
