Chiang Rai Wedding Venues

Chiang Rai, situated in the mountainous province of the same name, is a northern Thai city located near the borders of Laos and Myanmar (Burma).

Chiang Rai has a distinct Northern character that sets it apart from Chiang Mai. The local cuisine is known for its spicier flavors, and the region’s ethnic diversity is notable, with a significant population of hill tribes and Burmese residents.

Among my favorite Chiang Rai wedding venues are the picturesque riverbanks of the charming city and the iconic Golden Triangle.

Four Seasons Tented Camp Golden Triangle

The Four Seasons Tented Camp Golden Triangle is not just the best wedding venue in Chiang Rai, but arguably the finest in northern Thailand. This venue offers an adventurous experience in the heart of northern Thailand’s natural landscape. Guests can immerse themselves in the wilderness of Burma and Laos while staying in luxurious tents or lodges with stunning views of the Ruak River. The camp offers unique activities such as interacting with rescued elephants, exploring bamboo jungles, and relaxing in private infinity pools or wooden hot tubs.

Located within a four-hour scenic drive from Chiang Mai, the camp provides an idyllic escape from the city’s hustle and bustle. A wedding in Chiang Rai at this venue is unforgettable, surrounded by rescued elephants, bamboo jungles, and mountain trails. Enjoy the rustic tents while being enveloped by misty mountains, mighty rivers, and spectacular trails. The Four Seasons Tented Camp Golden Triangle offers a distinctive adventure, making it a perfect choice for a Chiang Rai wedding.

The camp is also one of my favorite spots for photography. The stunning landscape and luxurious tents provide ample photo opportunities. The elephant rides are a must-try, and it’s reassuring to know that the elephants are well-cared for in this beautiful place. I highly recommend the Four Seasons Tented Camp for those seeking an intimate elopement.

Anantara Golden Triangle Elephant Camp & Resort

Another exceptional wedding venue in the Chiang Saen Golden Triangle area is the Anantara Golden Triangle. With its breathtaking scenery and impeccable services, this resort is a fantastic option for your Chiang Rai wedding.

Set amidst the stunning natural beauty of the jungle, Anantara offers a picturesque ceremony location. Weddings can take place among the hillsides of three countries, with views of the Mekong River, lush rice paddies, and majestic elephants. Thai traditions such as a monk’s ceremony, a water-pouring ritual, or a religious service can be included in the celebration.

The unique experience at Anantara Golden Triangle will embellish your Chiang Rai wedding memories. Nestled within the enchanting Golden Triangle, Anantara provides breathtaking views of three countries.

Le Meridien Chiang Rai Resort

Le Méridien Chiang Rai Resort offers guests a unique experience, located on the scenic Kok River with panoramic views of the surrounding countryside. The enchantment of Chiang Rai extends beyond the Golden Triangle region into the city itself.

Chiang Rai offers many picturesque photo opportunities at every turn, with beautiful traditional Thai architecture, charming cafes, and quaint shops lining the streets. The city’s location on the banks of the Kok River provides even more photo opportunities.

Le Méridien is an excellent choice for Chiang Rai weddings, offering various indoor and outdoor venues. Options include a banquet hall and a manicured lawn with stunning views overlooking the Kok River. The hotel’s two 120-year-old raintrees also make a perfect backdrop for weddings. Le Méridien can create a traditional Lanna ceremony, a Thai-inspired celebration, or a unique Chiang Rai wedding.
