Golden Triangle

After we relaxed on Thursday (29.08.03), I went on a trip to the Golden Triangle on Friday.The Golden Triangle is the part where the borders of the countries of Laos, Burma and Thailand meet. In a greater sense the Golden Triangle is the part in the North where the Opium was planted.
We took a Longtailboat to get close to the shore of Burma, and get onto an island which belonged to Laos, this was very touristic, you could write postcards from Laos to prove that you've been there, even if only for a few minutes.
After Lunch we went to the Northernmost point of Thailand, which is just next to the bordercrossing to Burma.
On our way back to Chiang Mai we stopped at a Longneck Karen Hilltribe village.
