Great place to visit some beautiful views. If you get a chance go on a boat trip. Visited a small uninhabited island shared only with goats. Then after a steep climb up steps found a Buddhist temple😎

Nice views from around the dam. Drive up to it also, very nice and tidy. Didn't try any of the boat trip, was literally just a pit stop on my way up to Chiang Mai from Bangkok.

Close to the city of Tak is the nice King Bhumibol Dam. Not only the dam is a nice place to visit, but around the dam, there are hotels, beautiful nature and a golfcourse. All worth a visit.

Beautiful scenery at the dam wall, a pity the parking was so chaotic and impossible to drive to the ferry tour jetty. Nobody on duty to assist with queries. The viewing platform on 2nd floor of building has view obscured by un trimmed trees.
