Fancy dining on local cuisine while dipping your feet into the cool lake and having the gorgeous mountains as a backdrop? This place is an absolute must and quite a rare gem amongst tourists. We dined on freshly caught fried shrimps from the lake itself. There were nice breezes and u can even get a massage after a meal here.... More

Arrive early so you can snag a sala (bamboo hut) to sit in, especially on busy weekends. Order food and drinks, relax, play in the water, or rent a pedello (but only if you're under 65 kg / 143 lbs). Entry fee 50 THB for foreigners, 20 THB for Thai - and it doesn't matter if you speak Thai, come... More

You can go there by bicke from Chiang Mai. For entrance you have to pay 50bth. Nice place to spend lazy day. Place to relax mostly for Thai People. Along the shore stais bungalows with small table, you can order something to eat from restaurands. I recommend.

On our short stay in Chiang Mai, my husband and I and another couple decided to hike to the waterfall at Huay Tung Tao Lake. We had a pretty tough time finding the start of the trail near the base of the golden buddha, so we ended up hiking it backwards. Straight up a mountain we went. We spent about... More

Great way to relax. Just a view of the lake and good food. If you don't have anything else to do, hop on the bike, eat and relax, drive around the area. This gets busy and packed during Songkran though. :)

Take time to travel to Huay Tung Toa Lake north of the city of Chiang Mai. It's well worth the drive, but it's best to have a guide to tell you the whole story about the lake.

We love this place. The view is so cool, the lake with the mountains in the background and the food, well, it's just the best in Chiangmai Mai. We always have Tom yam kung it really is excellent, spicey and fresh, loads of prawns and the freshness of the lemongrass is too good to describe. Sitting in you own bamboo... More

What a great place to come for lunch and relax in the little huts around the lake. It's set up very well and the food is yummy. It costs 50 bht to come in and food not expensive. Only 30km out of town.
