The journey to Doi Mae Salong is perhaps more about the journey as such than the final destination. Incredible scenery along the spaghetti roads leading there. Once in Mae Salong an opportunity to buy tea, coffee, nuts, dried fruit and mushrooms. Take the opportunity to visit a tea plantation to savor some excellent oolong tea.

during winter time, don't miss this place, the weather is cold at night and early morning, you can learn a culture of mountain village groups. they have some local foods for you to taste it. if you stay over night there, it have a night market that you ca walk around to see the life style of local people and don't miss the local market in early morning.

This is where remnants of Nationalist Chinese armies settled after their defeat by Mao. It’s a bit different than most areas in Thailand and offers some unusual souvenirs and such. Also this is in tea country and you can get Avery large variety .

Great journey on scooter from Chiang Rai. Beautiful scenery. The last kilometers can be slightly challenging on scooter. The village itself is not really interesting. The market is very touristy and the few tribes persons quite agressive to sell theiir products.

Doi Mae Salong is about two hours drive from Chiang Rai. It is most popular for it's tea plantation & has two Wats, which are not so famous. Otherwise nothing much to see than the scenery. But, still worth a visit.

If you are traveling by motorcycle this area is a great place to ride. The road is a twisty mountain road in great shape. Awesome views. If you like roasted duck then you are in the right place. Nice local restaurants. Oh and did I forget to mention the tea? A must visit for tea lovers. There are many tea farms that can be visited.
