Memory by Nicole Yu

A visit to the north wouldn't be complete without checking out the Golden Triangle. The Golden Triangle, a term coined by the CIA, is the point at which Thailand, Myanmar, and Laos converge. It used to be the largest opium-producing area in the world up until the 1990s—when production started to decline because of the government's restoration efforts for a drug-free Chiang Rai. To further this initiative, the Hall of Opium was opened. In this museum, you will get a walk-through of the drug trade and the eradication operations of Thailand for the past years.
