Tha Ton

Posted By : admin/ 12 0

Located on a bend in the Kok River, picturesque Tha Ton is essentially a staging post for riverboats that make regular trips from here to Chiang Rai. Excursions can be arranged at guesthouses in town, and may often be combined with visits to nearby tribal villages or hot springs. Tha Ton’s chief tourist attraction is Wat Tha Ton, which is notable for a huge white Buddha with a striking golden topknot. The temple dominates the town from its hillside location to the west, offering splendid panoramic views.

Environs

The road leading from Tha Ton to Doi Mae Salong, 26 miles (43 km) to the northeast, takes in impressive mountain scenery and villages along the Myanmar border.
