Huay Tung Tao Lake, a man-made reservoir, is a stunning waterside location just outside Chiang Mai to spend the day. It features a gorgeous view of the Doi Suthep mountains, calming waters, and grass huts peppered along the landscape. It has dozens of restaurants with seating floating atop the lake where you can grab a bite, order a drink, lay back, and relax. Chiang Mai may be a land-locked area in the typically beach-famous country of Thailand, but its hidden wonders like Huay Tung Tao Lake provide respite on even the hottest of days.
The Huay Tung Tao Lake was built by His Majesty King Bhumibol to solve water scarcity issues in the area. Now, it has become a popular attraction between tourists and locals alike. Not only can you swim in the stunning Huay Tung Tao Lake, but there are swan boats and floats that can be rented to laze in the water. Beside the lake is a two-lane jogging track, a quad-bike course, and even a field of quirky straw sculptures to explore. Located less than half an hour from Chiang Mai, Huay Tung Tao Lake is one of the area’s most popular picnic and day trip destinations.
