The Golden Triangle is one of Asia’s two main illicit opium-producing areas. It is an area of 950,000 Km² that overlaps the mountains of four countries of Southeast Asia: Myanmar, Vietnam, Laos and Thailand.Along with Afghanistan in the Golden Crescent and Pakistan, it has been one of the most extensive opium-producing areas of Asia and word since the 1920s. Most of the world’s heroin came from the Golden Triangle until the early 21st century when Afghanistan became the world’s largest producer. The Golden Triangle also designates the confluence of the Ruak River and the Mekong River, since the term has been appropriated by the Thai tourist industry to describe the nearby junction of Thailand, Laos and Myanmar.
