Huay Tung Thao Lake is also a wonderful place first thing in the morning for avid birdwatchers.
Huay Tung Tao, Chiang Mai is really gorgeous and calming lake adored by all the tourists visiting Thailand. You can sit back and relax in a floating bamboo raft with thatched roof around the lake edge. You can cheerfully swim about in the lake and run around the lake and have boundless fun and frolic. If you are an enthusiastic bird watcher you can view some of the exceptional and beautiful migrated birds while you relax along the banks of the lake.
This is a reservoir within surrounding woodlands, and is located further along the Irrigation Canal Road and the 700 Year Sports Stadium, as you head towards Mae Rim (Route 121). The lake is about 12 kilometers from the city center and takes 15=20 minutes by tuk-tuk/taxi.
