“Maybe "just" a river, but it leads...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 11, 2013

... to pretty cool places. I did a short racing bicycle trip heading south, just following the Ping river. The street is pretty good so perfect for road trips of any kind. It needed me maybe 10 minutes until I was out of the noisy traffic of the city. Just following the Ping lead me to small villages, a few temples and beautiful nature. Will do a trip heading north soon.

“River walk in Chiangmai”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 24, 2013

Nice walk alongside river, with quaint shops to visit and charming coffee houses. Can stop and check your messages with free wi fi. The Old City Wall is a lovely place to linger for awhile

“The Beauty of Ping River attracts the floating clouds”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 4, 2013

The beauty of Ping river certainly is not because the old iron bridge which has become an iconic symbol added to the burden of this small and quiet river. I would rather say it is the reflection of the floating clouds which were awesomely beyond our descriptions and they simply do not place any weight on the Ping river.

“Mae Ping River Cruise to Farmer's House”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 16, 2013 via mobile

20 mon down the fairly brown Ping River to a small jetty with a "farm" attached. Farm - 5 geese and 2 fat wild pigs and a few plants and herbs. Fresh fruit served. Watermelon and pineapple - not exactly from the farm but nice. Guide alleged it was the snake pit as filmed in Rambo 4......

“Cool down on a hot day”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 2, 2013

(http://www.maepingrivercruise.com/)
When we finally found it behind the Wat Chaimongkol, we booked a long boat river cruise in the afternoon. It was a very pleasant cruise and a great way to see the city from the waterside. The guide/skipper on the steering had entertaining stories to tell and was also explaining the sights as we went. The stop at the Thai Farmer’s House proved to be more interesting than we expected. It was a fun and easy-going activity. Take your photo camera with you!
