There are many tourist attractions in this area north of Chiang Rai – the White Temple, Black House, Golden Triangle, the “Hall of Opium” Museum, and many more.
Close to BAAN DOI, Doi Tung mountain, the monkey temple (Wat Tham Pla), the Sao Hin Payanak lake and the Burmese market in Mae Sai are worth a visit. It is also possible to experience nature in the nearby mountains.
Accomodation in Mae Sai
Every visit begins with getting to know us in our office on the BAAN DOI site, where our child protection guidelines are explained. Afterwards you can visit the orphanage together with us and also get an insight into our other programs and if you like you can have dinner together with us and the children.
We are always asked if visitors can bring some presents for the kids. Yes, but we want to avoid jealousy, disappointment and frustration. That’s why we ask you to hand the presents to our child care workers. They will distribute the presents later.
The best presents are those which can be used by all children, like ball games, musical instruments, or materials for painting (eg. water colours) or handicrafts.
Please have a look at our child protection policy as well.
Thank you very much for your understanding. We are looking forward to meeting you.
