The Golden Triangle - Hilltribes

To make a visit to the Golden Triangle when you are in the northern part of Thailand is essensial, and don't miss a boattrip on the Mekong river where you will be sailing through the terretory of Laos, Burma and Thailand. Include also a visit to one of the many hilltribes you can find up in the mountains. It can be a long trip if you go up from Chiang Mai, but it is worth it.
