This was a great day out, made all the better by our awesome guide Arrow. The White Temple, although full of tourists, was really interesting and without our guide we would have missed a lot of interesting aspects and not understood the background behind the temple. The Opium Museum was also well designed and interesting to read and see the history of the opium trade.

This tour is a must. We went to the beautiful White Temple and our tour guide Bee was very knowledgeable. Also, it included a visit to the Opium museum and I learned a lot there about the history and why this area is called the golden area. Lunch break had delicious food. Finally we went to the golden triangle and took a boat trip and moved along the Mekong river near Myanmar and Laos. We also went to the viewpoint where the 3 countries meet. A very happy day. I couldn’t possibly recommend this tour more.

Picked up from hotel on time. With a small group of 7 The entire trip was well organised with an excellent guide and driver. Had plenty of time at each area to take photos and explore the surroundings Lunch was very very nice with a good variety. Just be aware it’s a long day, travelling 4 hours each way. Would highly recommend.
