Mmmmm. Tom Yum Goong. Delicious. So, what is it, exactly? Well, for those who don’t know, it is a delicious spicy and sour shrimp soup that is one of Thailand’s most recognizable tastes known worldwide. If you are interested in sampling this beloved soup the Thai and authentic way, then check out our Tom Yum Goong day trip tour in Chiang Rai! A memorable day experiencing the serene Thai-Lao border atmosphere also awaits you on this trip.

Kick things off witnessing the sunrise. There certainly is no better way to start things off, is there? The lookout point is also scenic besides the sunrise, being surrounded by a vast grassy plateau. Not only that, you can also see Laos from up here. This is also the venue for your breakfast. Yes, enjoy the meal and soak it all in!

Now it’s time to absorb some of the tranquil Thai-Lao lifestyle and environment. Visit a local border village where lots of hand-made products such as cotton and silk materials are made and then later sold at the local market. Then bask in the always soothing atmosphere the area is known for and enjoy a walk in a flower garden and orchid nurseries at Pha Mon Highland Agricultural Royal Project.

Your stomach may be rumbling and calling for some food by now. And right on cue! Your Tom Yum Goong lunch will take place at a local freshwater prawn farm in Thoeng district. Freshness and deliciousness is guaranteed!

A variety of tastes defines this soup. The spiciness and sourness is definitely there. But the various herbs and leaves compliment the soup even more. It also comes in two forms, a clear version or an orange and thicker variety where coconut milk is added to the broth. Both are sure to satisfy your appetite for a memorable lunch. The spiciness can be adjusted. Just inform the guys at prawn farm. Or, if you want a challenge, ask them for pet maak (very spicy). We dare you! There are also other prawn related specialties on offer here.

But wait, there’s more! On your way back, visit Phu Sang Waterfall, one of the unseen destinations in Thailand’s north and particularly famous for its warm waters which originate from the many natural hot springs in the area. This concludes your Tom Yum Goong experience.

Mix and match day trips like this with any of our Thailand tours. Thailand is a very diverse country, with the north offering a mountainous landscape and easy access to Myanmar and Laos via the Golden Triangle.
