Visiting the Golden Triangle region in Northern Thailand - where Thailand, Myanmar and Laos meet. We took a bus to Chiang Saen, a town along the Thai - Laos border and then boarded a boat for a trip along the mighty Mekong.
Following are scenes along the Mekong River nearby Chiang Saen. Boat traffic on the Mekong with Laos in the background.
Homes and life along the Mekong.
The beautiful bright colours of the long tail boats.
Nearby Chiang Saen along the shores of the Mekong is a giant Golden Buddha. The large blue boat below gives some sense of scale as to how large this Buddha actually is.
