About this photo
The mere mention of the "Golden Triangle" – the point where Thailand, Laos and Myanmar meet – evokes thoughts of uncertain frontiers and illicit smuggling. There's romance, adventure and much else to enjoy in this little-visited area of north Thailand.
You can now discover this off-the-beaten-track region with Insight Guides' Chiang Mai's Sustainable Trails holiday, which also takes in a night safari, temple visits and a cooking course.
