Doi Mae Salong is the site of Santi Khiri Village, a community settled by the former Chinese 93rd Division who moved from Myanmar to reside on Thai territory in 1961. The village became well known for its enchanting scenery and tranquil atmosphere. Today it is a major tourist attraction with its small-town ambience, delicious native Chinese dishes, small hotels and guesthouses catering to visitors and tea, coffee and fruit tree plantations. The scenery is especially picturesque in December and January when sakuras are in full bloom. Scattered with many hill tribe villages, Doi Mae Salong is ideal for Trekking.
Among many Chiang Rai attractions, Doi Mae Salong is one of the most popular places tourists visit in winter because of its low temperature at the top. Other activities available here include a visit to tea houses, tea plantations, tasting stewed pork leg with hot steamed buns and Yunnan food. Doi Mae Salong locates in Santa Kiri Village, Mae Salong Nork sub district, Mae Fah Luang district, Chiang Rai province.
