Create an itinerary including Doi Mae Salong
Delve into a unique cultural experience surrounded by gorgeous mountains at Doi Mae Salong. Originally settled by Chinese refugees after the establishment of Communist rule, the community is now a bubble of Chinese language and customs in Thailand. Visit to see the tea plantations and buy oolong tea for souvenirs, and learn the area’s history at the tomb of General Tuan, a mausoleum of the community’s founder. Speaking Thai here will not be too helpful, but many popular attractions and tours offer English. See Doi Mae Salong and all Chiang Rai has to offer by arranging your trip with our Chiang Rai travel route planning tool.
