Notorious for its chequered history of opium cultivation, the Golden Triangle is now a thriving tourist destination. Situated at the crossroads of three countries – Laos, Thailand and Myanmar – the varying landscapes surrounding the Golden Triangle is truly a sight to behold.

A good way to fully appreciate the scenery would be to hire a boat to take you around the Mekong River. While there, be sure to check out the Hall of Opium. Widely regarded as one of the best museums in Thailand, it offers you an in-depth look into the smoky world of opium production.
