Hall of Opium at Golden Triangle  Golden TriangleThailand |  One of the many attractions of the Golden Triangle area, in the northern region of Thailand, is without a doubt the Hall of Opium, created in 1988 by Princess Mother on her desire to educate people on the background of opium in the Golden Triangle and elsewhere in the world. The Golden Triangle, infamous worldwide for its poppy fields, drug smugglers, and opium warlords. Throughout the three decades, the Golden Triangle supplied most of the world’s heroin. Even today, Myanmar and less so the Laos PDR produce significant amounts of opium. The Hall of Opium was created to help reduce demand through education.
Hall of Opium intended to those most susceptible to lure of illegal drugs, showing them how opium addiction became a world-wide problem, and how drug abuse affects individuals, their families, neighborhoods, and even their country. An story written by China with consequences all over Asia and the rest of the world. Hall of Opium. Opening Hours: Tuesday – Sunday. 08.30 – 17.30. Approximately 10 minutes from Chiang Saen and an hour from Chiang Rai city. Very interesting exhibitions, and a museum you will not expect to find in Chiang Saen.
