We stopped here on our tour, it was lovely and well worth the journey there. The spray coming from it was very welcome on a very hot day!

Doi inthanon is about 2 hours drive or a bit more from the old city. Most people would go there for trekking or visit the royal project there. We really had a great time doing the trek and visit the waterfall there, it was really beautiful. The only thing that was such a hassle for us was that it was... More

This is truly a highlight in visiting Chiang Mai. Worth the very twisty road that you take up the mountain. There are several options when deciding to visit this tourist destination, you can book a tour at a travel agent, or hire your own car with a driver for the day approx 1,200 Baht so shop around. We hired a... More

We hired a driver for the day (chaitanawa @gmail.com) to drive the 2 hours to this national park where the temperature was a little cooler than in Chiang Mai. We visited a Karen village one of the cleanest & prettiest we have ever seen in Asia. After being given complimentary coffee (grown & roasted in the village) we hired a... More

This is a great place to explore. Beautiful, scenic. If you are really adventurous there are some pretty challenging trails to tackle

I respect Buddhism. I don't respect this constant in your face asking for money. It's tiresome. Especially when the toilets are filthy dirty with no soap and no toilet paper and there is garbage everywhere.

Great views. Highest point in Thailand, Waterfalls, twin pagodas, royal project foundation. Unfortunately it was raining the day and pictures didn't turn out too good. Overall a good place to go

We rented a truck (Chevy Colorado) for the drive up to the park. With an included GPS it wasn't hard to find our way. We stopped at the Mae Klang, Wachirathan and Sirithan waterfalls on the way up. Very beautiful. The Ang Ka nature trail at the top is a lovely raised walkway through some beautiful vegetation. It is an... More
