Huay Tung Tao Lake, Chiang Mai

4.0
#3 of 10 in Nature in Chiang Mai
Actually a man-made reservoir surrounded by forest, Huay Tung Tao Lake draws lots of visitors with swimming, sunning, and a laid-back atmosphere. Grab your bathing suit and make your way to the lake, where for a small fee you can kick back along the shore or make a splash. Claim a grass hut, complete with mats and a table, to enjoy the view across the lake from the comfort of the shade. Bring a picnic to stay energized, or grab some local fare at one of several restaurants dotting the shoreline. Keep in mind, however, that many of the establishments in the area charge higher prices on their English-language menus. It couldn't be easier to arrange your visit to Huay Tung Tao Lake and many more Chiang Mai attractions: make an itinerary online using Inspirock's Chiang Mai vacation generator.

    Nice atmosphere, authentic food. We went by taxi, 600bht with tip. Outward journey took about 45 minutes and the trip much less. Man must for entry 50 bht pP pay and still 50 bht pP for the Lake houses. It was difficult to find a place right at the Lake because it was Sunday, and many had many Thais. The trip is 100% recommended.
