【Best l】 The Hall of Opium (Chiang Mai)
This will be the best place to understand the history of "dark opium business" in Thailand. Also, the success of change from opium to new plantation is nowhere to see in Japan. This will give the Japanese to understand how Thailand tried their best to eliminate opium from the country. The Hall of Opium may be necessary to add to a tour program for Japan.
【Best 2】 Chiang Khan and Kaeng Khut Khu (Loei Province)
The best place so far to feel the art of nature at any time in Thailand. Mountains and Mekong River in this area may remind the Japanese wnh the scenery of Hakone in Japan. Also, Chiang Khan is a small town along Mekong River, where the Japanese know very well about the river name but never seen in their life. This maybe a chance for them to feel the quietness of water flows, where the best and only place to see the river in Thailand. Sunset is must to see.
【Best 3】 Pasak Chonlasit Dam (Lob Buri)
This incredible scenery of dam will definitely amazes the Japanese tourist. The best place to come by special train, which has service to stop at the top of the dam and let the passengers take pictures freely for short period of time. No such commercial trains across the dam in Japan. Additional to this spot, this place is also recommended to visit during December to the beginning of February, when sun fiowers are in bloom.
【Best4】 City ofLamphang
Many Japanese FITs know Lamphang, but never seen in the Japanese tour programs. The best spot for additional Chiang Mai trip for the Japanese. Lamphang City let the Japanese feel and see the mixture of two beautifu1 different cultures, Lanna and Myanmar from the clothes and souvenirs sold in the city.
【Best 5】 Elephant Adventu re, Hill Tribe & Mae Kok River Trip
An eco-tour is sometimes recognized as elephant trekking in Thailand, but crossing Mae Kok river and reach to the village of Karen Hill tribe by elephants will be another story. Many tour programs end at 30 minutes ride. Additional 30 more minutes to the normal elephant trekking will make you feel excited by real nature from high level (view from the back of elephant).
