The mountain slopes of North Thailand are ideal for growing tea. Some of the most famous teas such as Oulong are being grown in the North. We try to include a visit to a tea plantation where ever possible. Especially in Chiang Rai province there are many tea plantations such as Chui Fong. This tea plantation has become a very popular tourist attraction. We will try to avoid the very commercial and busy plantations. Around Mae Salong there are plenty of smaller tea plantations. We also love the area around Ban Rak Thai in Mae Hong Son province.
