Mae Salong has a very interesting history. In the 1940s after the Chinese Civil war, remnants of the losing nationalist army fled to this then remote area of Thailand and set up their own little enclave, supported by Opium production. In the 1980s the Thai government integrated this enclave into Thai society and as part of the process introduced a policy of substituting Opium production for Growing Tea.
