Let’s get lost with this little boy while travelling.

Chiang-Mai, Thailand

Las week, I have introduced some wonderful tourist attractions in Chiang-Mai where you can enjoy a natural scenery and local traditions. This week, we still continue visiting unseen places around the remote area in Chiang-Mai.

First of all, let’s go to Mae Sa Water Fall, located in Doi Suthep–Pui National Park’s area, which is not far from the centre of this province. Travellers can easily go along Mae Rim Sa Meng road around 7 kilometres.

The waterfall never lacks the water throughout the year and it always gives a fresh cool temperature all over the place. You will not feel hot at all during a daytime even on a hot sunny day.

Plus, it is very suitable for those who want to have a small picnic as the ambience is covered with numerous species of local plants. Apparently, Mae Sa Water Fall is in the middle of the forest where allows all travellers to get closer to nature.

Moreover, Mae Sa Water Fall has 10 levels which separate from each other from 100 to 500 metres. The most miracle scenes appear in the 5th – 7th floors because you can float or swim as you desire.

Moving to the other tourist attraction in Chiang-Mai, it is known as Grand Canyon Chiang-Mai in Nam Phrae, Hang Dong District. This place was named like this because it looks like the one in Arizona, USA. However, they are not exactly alike. Unlike the original Grand Canyon, It’s a wide large area of 10-15 meter cliffs where you can see a body of water down below your feet.

It opens every day from 8:30 AM to 6 PM. The perfect view you must not miss takes place in the evening. Not only you can clearly take pictures of the site completely but also you can have a great background of the sunset over the cliff.

Grand Canyon Chiang-Mai can be considered as another adventurous site offering many challenging activities. For example, you can swim in the dark blue water whose colour is implying its depth. Also, you can jump from the high cliff down to the water for more adventures.

Still, you need to be careful while enjoying this activity since there were certain cases that people died as a result of a double jump. The last amazing activity is a rock climbing! It is more fun when you fall from the high place to the water. You heart will beat so fast as every single step you take can either lead you to reach the top or sink down to mysterious water.

Lastly, it is a coffee shop or cafe in Chiang-Mai. After wandering around the city, you may probably feel tired or thirsty. A coffee shop is a great place for you to take a stop and plan your next activity.

The taste of drinks and treats is various. Some are authentic while others are so universal that you can similarly find this taste in almost every corner of the world.  Instead, the uniqueness of the Chiang-Mai’s cafe is at the Lanna-style decoration which wonderfully creates the real identity of Chiang-Mai.

I hope you enjoy my journey.
Until I get lost again, see you again!!

  1. I like the “country road” caption 😉 Been there a few times and while I usually prefer beach and sea I always enjoy the fresh air up there. Good place 🙂
