Doi Mae Salong - Review
Located in the northwest region of Chiang Rai, Doi Mae Salong is a mountain top town that calls for a day tour from the city. This beautiful landscape is home to cherry orchards, oranges and above all tea plantations that have replaced the earlier poppy fields. A tea-tasting session in one of the high street's tea shops is now an essential part of any visit to this place. From the top of the mountain you can see spectacular landscapes around.Other activities in the small town itself include checking out the local hilltribe villages and markets; visiting the unusual Chinese Martyr’s Memorial; climbing up to the pagoda on the west side of town, which boasts superb views over the surrounding landscape; and last but not least, sampling the town's excellent Yunnanese cuisine.

Doi Mae Salong, Chiang Rai Reviews
The tea capital of Thailand. Detachments of General Duan, who came from China, brought with them a tea culture. Of course, tea does not compare with what is grown for centuries in neighboring China, but compared to what you can buy in Thai stores - quite good. Yes, and those who are not so keen on tea as I can find something to do - clean mountain air, chic landscapes and very friendly people (however, like almost everywhere in Thailand)
A town from where you can start visit the local tea plantation. Better to have an accommodation in Chiang Rai and then to get there. I had the sunset and was very good. The road is fantastic and you will see great landscape.
Good place to visit
