What To Expect At The Choui Fong Tea Plantation
The Choui Fong tea company and plantation has been making a name for itself for half a century already, producing the highest quality teas with traditional farming methods. They have cultivated their own tea plantations and take pride in serving a fresh and tasty cup of tea!
Their beauty has naturally invited many tourists and so they have opened two cafes for us to enjoy. The two restaurants offer some great meals and drink options like fresh green tea cake, delicious green tea smoothies and lots more. The tea rooms are really modern, high-end and are set with stunning views.
Choui Fong offers up a great spot to stop and have some tea and admire the rolling hills of the plantation. There are even certain sections you can walk though yourself. Please do watch for signs though, you can’t just run along their cultivated land for the perfect photo, no matter how perfect it’d be. *Sigh*
The farm and cafés are open from 8:30 am to 5:30 pm, daily.
How To Get There
If you are in Chiang Rai for a day or more we suggest either renting a scooter or a car (as we did) from your hotel. We paid 1200 THB to rent a car for the day.
Make sure to have your International Driver’s License, it isn’t necessary to hire out transport but may come in handy if pulled over by Law Enforcement.

Other Transport Options
If you are looking at visiting Chiang Rai for the day, another super cheap and reliable way to get around Thailand (and most of Southeast Asia) is to use a company called 12Go Asia. We have booked through them many times and have always arrived safely at our destinations.
What Else Can You Do In Chiang Rai?
We have a blog post up showing exactly what we decided to do on our trip to Chiang Rai. We had just over a day here and this is what we got up to.
Chiang Rai has so much more to offer. We really suggest spending some more time here if you are able to!
