Let’s go travel like locals. Here is such a relaxing place with lake and mountain views near Chiang Mai city center (30km away) +++ plus Giant KingKong family sculptures and they also have huts for rent (only 600 Baht per night) and… a zipline on the lake but I forgot to take a photo ^^
Around the lake they have many restaurants with perfect lake views. You can get a delicious meal with good price and fast service here.
At the end of the lake you will see 3 huge KingKong made from rice straw
Here we are … Rice Straw Animal Sculptures Exhibition!!!
Time for photo with King Kong family hahahah
Nowadays they created many kinds of rice straw animal sculptures (elephant, lion, etc.). Go and see it yourself 😉
Except KingKongs, the views with rice field and huts are beautiful too. I really love it and you may can stay here a night or more in the huts if you want new experiences
** If you want to see green rice field, you should go around Sep – Oct and gold rice field is around Oct – Nov
