Today we visited the Golden Triangle, that little corner of the world where Thailand, Burma and Laos intersect. The Golden Triangle was once a major source of heroine, but those days are supposed to be behind it now.
We took a boat ride on the Mekong River which separates the three countries and stopped briefly in Laos. For 20 baht (about 66 cents) per adult, we entered Laos without having to go through immigration or customs. We visited a small market for fifteen minutes and then returned back to Thailand.
