The newly opened 32-room Chiang Khong Teak Garden Hotel is the first 3-star property in the Mekong riverside town of Chiang Khong, Chiang Rai province, northern Thailand. The town is a fledgling gateway to Northern Laos and a future hub on the planned Asian highway network.

Of the 32 rooms, 10 have a river view, 22 a garden view. Both twin and doubles are available. The hotel has a restaurant for breakfast but is planning to construct a larger restaurant in the coming months.

The rooms have air-con, a safety deposit box, minibar, TV with a choice of international channels, tea and coffee making facilities and free Wi-Fi internet access.

Chiang Khong is the place where many travellers start their journey into Laos from northern Thailand. It is possible the town will become a major hub on Highway 3 (the north-south corridor), which is part of the Asian highway network. Highway 3 is scheduled to connect Bangkok with Kunming in southern China’s Yunnan province. Currently, the road from Chiang Rai city to Chiang Khong is being widened to four lanes. A bridge over the Mekong river connecting Chiang Khong with Ban Huai Xai in Laos is currently under construction.
