Comment please re stops during drive from Chiang Rai to Chiang Khong

Jump to last reply

In November, we will spend one day with a hired car/guide traveling one way from Chiang Rai to Chiang Khong (to then board a slow boat). On the way, we would like to stop in a few places. We would like to be in Chiang Khong around 6 pm, before it gets dark.

I am considering stopping, time allowing at the Black House, Wat Phrathat Doi Chomthong, Wat Chedi Luang in Chiang Saen, a tea plantation and potentially other places of interest to us (maybe a detour to Mae Salong and Doi Tung Royal Villa).

Google shows a 4 hour drive time (non-stop) if one takes the detour to Mae Salong and Doi Tung. If I know correctly, the Black House opens at 9 am (please confirm if you know). So assuming an 8:30 am departure, would the above (including the detour) be too much for the planned drive?

Thanks
