We enjoy going to HTT lake for hikes. There is a loop you can hike that takes you by a beautiful waterfall and up the mountain further for a beautiful overview of the park and beyond. It is great for picnicking by the lake in little huts (or order food), or for birding, or for trail riding on motorcycles. There... More

A big lake surrounded by little bamboo shacks, served by a variety of restaurants. Park your car/motorbike, pick out a bamboo shack and make yourself at home. There are no chairs and tables, so you just sit on the bamboo mat around a low table. Before long, someone will appear with a menu, and depending on your luck, you'll get... More

Cheap beer, relaxing vibe. We went for a few hours to drink and play cards, highly recommend it for something similar.

The only time you see people here is on a Sunday. During the week it is very quiet. I go here to jog and walk around the lake. It is a very beautiful peaceful place. There are little rafts at each restaurant where you can sit and have lunch. However, it does suffer from the typically Thai racist affliction of... More

We went to this lake today. It had mostly Thai people there so I don't think many farang (foreigners) know about here. Very picturesque and quiet. There are little huts dotted around the lake shoreline that you can sit in to relax and take in the view, read a book and just chill. There are toilets dotted around the place... More

The Huay tubg Tao lake is a very good place to spend half a day or a day or rest. Ideal to eat at lunch along the lake and share a special time with your Partner and / or friends

We had a fabulous last day visit to this lake. We rented a scooter in Chiangmai but I guess you can take a public taxi out there. Relaxing, good food and not crowded because we went on a weekday after a holiday for the Thai people. This is a popular spot for the local people.

Not far out of town is Huay Tung Tao lake and it seems to be a local secret ! The only mistake we made was to take a TukTuk instead of a Taxi/Red bus.. the ride out there and back was a bit scary as the TukTuk couldn't keep up with the speed of the other traffic ,but once there... More

Around the lake there are lots of huts on the shore and although there are many kiosks selling snacks and soft drinks, I recommend tourists bring their own picnic. Well patronised by locals on the weekend who go there to eat, swim, fish and ride in paddle boats. I am told it is quiet on weekdays. Entrance fee is 50... More

At Huay Tung Tao they have several restaurants around a man made lake (I believe the Thai Army owns the land) and it is fun to go on nice days for a long lunch a few beers and maybe a swim. Now let me be honest, not all of the restaurants are the same, I have had some not so... More
