3 Best Chiang Rai Wedding Venues in Thailand

Chiang Rai, situated in the mountainous province of the same name, is a northern Thai city located in close proximity to the borders of Laos and Myanmar (previously known as Burma).
Chiang Rai has a unique character that is distinctly Northern and sets it apart from Chiang Mai. The local cuisine is known for its spicier flavors, and the region’s ethnic makeup is notably diverse, including a significant population of hill tribes and Burmese.
From the picturesque riverbanks of the charming city, all the way to the iconic Golden Triangle on the border here is my favorite Chiang Rai wedding venues.

Four Seasons Tented Camp Golden Triangle

Not just the best Chiang Rai wedding venue but probably the best in northern Thailand. Four Seasons Tented Camp Golden Triangle, is an adventure in the heart of northern Thailand’s natural landscape, where you can immerse yourself in the wilderness of Burma and Laos. Staying in luxurious tents or lodges with stunning views of the Ruak River. Interact with rescued elephants, explore bamboo jungles, and unwind in private infinity pools or wooden hot tubs.
Located within four hour scenic drive from Chiang Mai, the camp provides an escape from the hustle and bustle of the city. Your Chiang Rai wedding will be an unforgettable experience, surrounded by rescued elephants, bamboo jungles, and mountain trails, in the most intimate setting. Get lost in the misty mountains, mighty rivers, and spectacular trails while enjoying the rustic wooden furnishings, private decks, and outdoor showers in your tent. The Four Seasons Tented Camp Golden Triangle offers a unique adventure of a lifetime, perfect for a Chiang Rai Wedding.
The Four Seasons Tented Camp is one of my favorite photography spots! The stunning landscape and the luxurious tents provide an abundance of photo opportunities. The elephant rides are a must-try, and it’s reassuring to know that the elephants are well-cared for in this lovely place. For those who want to have an intimate elopement, this venue is highly recommended.
