Around Chiang Saen hotels and hostels
Imperial Golden Triangle Resort
One of the first-class options, this huge hotel is located a brief walk from all of Sop Ruak’s tourist services. Rooms include balconies with impressive river views.
Anantara Golden Triangle Resort & Spa
This award-winning resort takes up a large patch of beautifully landscaped ground directly opposite the Hall of Opium. The rooms combine Thai and international themes, and all have balconies looking over the Mekong River.
Golden Triangle Paradise Resort
On the Burmese side of a river junction stands the Golden Triangle Paradise Resort, a huge hotel and casino financed by Thai and Japanese business partners who have leased nearly 480 hectares from the Myanmar government.
Greater Mekong Lodge
Part of the Hall of Opium compound, this hotel has 28 well-equipped rooms with cable TV in the cavernous, stark main building. But for the same price, the 13 elevated bungalows are the better choice.
