The Golden Triangle: Inside Southeast Asia's Drug

The Golden Triangle region that joins Burma, Thailand, and Laos is one of the global centers of opiate and methamphetamine production. Opportunistic Chinese businessmen and leaders of various armed groups are largely responsible for the manufacture of these drugs. The region is defined by the apparently conflicting parallel strands of criminality and efforts at state building, a tension embodied by a group of individuals who are simultaneously local political leaders, drug entrepreneurs, and members of heavily armed militias.Ko-lin Chin, a Chinese American criminologist who was born and raised in Burma, conducted five hundred face-to-face interviews with poppy growers, drug dealers, drug users, armed group leaders, law-enforcement authorities, and other key informants in Burma, Thailand, and China. The Golden Triangle provides a lively portrait of a region in constant transition, a place where political development is intimately linked to the vagaries of the global market in illicit drugs.Chin explains the nature of opium growing, heroin and methamphetamine production, drug sales, and drug use. He also shows how government officials who live in these areas view themselves not as drug kingpins, but as people who are carrying the responsibility for local economic development on th...

The Golden Triangle

The Golden

Welcome to the golden triangle—a gateway of sorts to hidden worlds so much like our own with unique differences that are wholly theirs. Some have termed it parallel worlds or a multiverse; others have named it the island universe theory. The golden triangle is a hidden doorway to all these and so much more.Not found on any map and seemingly nomadic, the triangle is almost sentient, avoiding all eyes that search for it as few have tried to locate it, yet no one have been successful. Until now.The golden triangle has now opened again and chosen you as the witness. Step forward and don’t be alarmed. The triangle wishes to show you something, and now all you can do is be swept along the currents and bear witness to all you see.

My Life in the Golden Triangle

My Life in the Golden

This is a true story of our once peaceful life in Thailand. Our life was thunderously disrupted and then destroyed by local drug runners. These smugglers appeared to be seeking to expand their lucrative money making drug operations. They eliminated all who stood in the path of their operations. They showed no mercy towards anyone. They killed everyone who stood in their path, bar none. They thought I would be an easy mark. The reality was to be a cliff hanger of a battle. A good ole boy from Kentucky, taught me how to shoot. I put those lessons to good use.

Chiang Mai to Chiang Rai & The Golden Triangle: 50 Tips for Tourists & Backpackers (Thai Travel Guide Book 6)

Chiang Mai to Chiang Rai & The Golden

Chiang Rai & the Golden Triangle - probably the most under-visited and underrated region of Thailand. Way up on the northern tip of the country, the Golden Triangle is an astounding mix of cultures, scenery, and history. The Golden Triangle refers to the point where Mynmar, Laos and Thailand meet. The book begins by talking you through the options to get to Chiang Rai from Chiang Mai, and lists ways to arrive in from Bangkok economically and quickly. Infamous at one time due to the drug warlords that held sway in the opium business, the terrain that was their natural protector against the authorities has now been transformed into tourist-friendly area of outstanding beauty. Chiang Rai is home to two of the greatest art projects in the world, with the stunning White Temple, and fascinating Black Village. Set among the rolling hills and mountains of the north, this little city has a very laid-back feel to it. Other Thais will tell you that the Thai Northern food is the best the country has to offer, and that comes from the fusion of cultures in this area. The Mountain People are a large presence in the north, and on your travels you'll meet Akha, Tai Yai, Hmong and Karen people among others. Mae Salong, a one-time epicenter of the drug trade, is a visually stunning part of the worl...
