ROYAL PROJECT 

Doi Tung,

from opium to coffee

[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space][vc_column_text]In Northern Thailand, the Golden Triangle has long been the world’s top opium-producing region. Today, on the hill of Doi Tung, poppy fields have been replaced with coffee and macadamia nut groves. Behind this eradication of opium growing, you’ll find the sustainable, fair-trade project development of Doi Tung.
