There's a surcharge for non Thais. 20 baht for Thais, 50 baht for the rest of us. For Thailand, this isn't too bad at "only" 2 1/2 times the right price! Nonetheless, it's offputting. I went on a Sunday around noon to enjoy some nice...More

Really recommend Huay Tung Tao Lake. It's not a touristic place and you can relax in one of the booths, swim, have lunch or drink something. Be warned that the booths are not free, they're from the restaurants and you have to eat something to...More

Not too far from Chiang mai, and is such a relaxing place to grab lunch and enjoy the peace and tranquility of the lake.

It’s an amazing place to check out. We came on a scooter and drove around the lake, stopped at a place for lunch. Food was okay but the atmosphere was great.

It costs about 160b to go here by Grab and 50b per person entrance. The taxi will probably drop you near the toilet area, you will then have to ask around about the straw hut occupancy or just walk inside one and see what happens....More

Heading out of the scooter the roads are very busy so be careful! Also we were fined by police pulling over every tourist for not having an international driving licence despite having a full motorbike license (that most don't have) fine was 500 baht and...More

We followed friends using a motor bike. This is a lake formed by a dam. We arrived early and took a bamboo hut on the shoreline over the water that provided shade and a table to order food from the local vendor. People swam but...More

I've been several times and chosen not to swim, as I don't know what's in the water. As the other poster said, locals quite happily swim there.
