The beautiful green villages of Northern Thailand, part of a famous and popular tour of Thailand which is called the Golden Triangle, are an overview of the meeting point between the borders of Thailand, Burma and Laos. Axial reference to the Golden Triangle tour will begin from the tropical town of Chiang Mai, unfortunately this will not be an elephant tour as is usual in Chiang Mai, for this you can rent a 4 × 4 vehicle.
