Thailand is famous for some of the most exotic islands in the world, but the northern part of the country provides a great mix of diversity—culture, adventure, and great sightseeing opportunities. After exploring the capital locals and seasoned travelers alike, recommend heading north to the Golden Triangle, where Burma, Laos, and Thailand meet. The longtail boats on the Mekong allow for travelers to visit three countries in one day, or even an hour. The area is also home to both amazing resorts with breathtaking views and experiences as well as working elephant sanctuaries. If Thailand has long been on your must-see list but that overnight trans-Pacific flight has deterred you, daily direct flights from Dubai on Emirates will get you there in under seven hours. Join Afar Experiences in Dubai to gain VIP access to your next stop exploring the Golden Triangle.
