Visit Wat Che Luang a royal stupa temple there are quite a few similarly named temples around but we’re referring to the old Chiang Saen one, so named since it’s thought to have been the principal temple of King Mengrai’s former capital. Located in the northwest of Chiang Rai province on the banks of the Mekong near the Golden Triangle, the city’s ruins are scattered throughout the modern town of Chiang Saen.
Travel to Golden Triangle the border regions between Thailand, Burma and Laos and when gold was used by Chinese traders to pay for opium grown there.
The history of the opium poppy in the Golden Triangle can be traced back to various Chinese migrant groups for whom the poppy was an integral part of their cultural traditions. Elderly people regarded opium, and still do, as an acceptable natural stimulant. The Hmong tribe has always produced opium for trade, at rst it was intended for the Chinese market, but later the French colonists bought large amounts during their reign in Indochina.
