Mae Kuang Dam Dam and Temple Overlooking - Weekend Trip

Not long ago, I was in the beautiful city of Chiang Mai,where I stayed with my good friends. They have the habit of every weekend somewhere to get out on a bike, and not necessarily in a new place, and not necessarily in the tourist and popular. In general, they brought me to the lake Mae Kuang Dam dam, which is located north of Chiang Mai, on a bike very close.

Lake Mae Kuang Dam

Not to say that everyone will like the place, butyou know, if you live leisurely, and you don’t need to go around all the sights in the area, then it’s good to go there just to stay. To be in silence alone, or vice versa, alone with someone you love, look at the calm surface of the water, expose your face to the wind and forget for a while about your work, affairs and problems. These are the feelings that cover me in such places.

In other cases, there is no need to go there, nothing is straight.special will not find. On the other hand, this is also good; if something is created there for tourists, then it will no longer be suitable for “thinking” either. It seems that there were going to build resorts there sometime, but the king said to leave everything as it is. By the way, it was he who developed this dam with a reservoir. Who does not know, the Thai king of all trades is a master, in particular, he is also an engineer of such facilities.

Dam two pieces. About one statue of Buddha, a large arbor and gateway. About the second there is a Thai cafe and pier. In the photo above was the first, and just below, see the second.

Basically, remembering a point on the map, youget no problem. On the way there will be several checkpoints and barriers, let them not confuse you, admission is free and open to all. The label costs near the first dam, where there is a spillway and an arbor.

Not a tourist temple with views

Small temple on top of a small hillhiding among the trees, therefore, not knowing about it, most likely you will not get into it, especially there are no signs anywhere. Frightened monks have a genuine interest, when farang comes into their view, how can you not practice in English. The territory is relatively empty: the temple itself (viharn), a stupa and a couple of gazebos with views of the fields. Surely, something else is hidden on the slopes of the hill, according to the type of simple dwelling of the monks, but here it is more likely to drop by the views, and not the temple itself. Well, and not bad so you can sit in a shady gazebo, admiring the rice fields from a height, and drinking ice water through a straw. Water is free and very handy in this heat.

P.S. For those who are going to Chiang Mai for sightseeing, I recommend the service for booking hotels RoomGuru and our Guesthouse overview in the historic center of the city (squared).

Life hacking 1 - how to buy a good insurance

Choosing insurance is now unrealistically difficult, so to help all travelers, I compile a rating. To do this, I constantly monitor forums, study insurance contracts and use insurance by myself.

Life hacking 2 - how to find a hotel 20% cheaper

First, choose a hotel on Booking. They have a good offer base, but the prices are NOT the best! The same hotel can often be found 20% cheaper in other systems through the RoomGuru service.
