Bamboo Shelters Along Huay Tung Tao

One of my favorite places to relax near Chiang Mai is lake Huay Tung Tao. It is located only about 12 kilometers from the hustle and bustle of the Old City but if feels like it is a world away. The hiking, bird and nature watching is excellent. There are many small bamboo gazebo type structures on stilts all around the lake just over the water where you can have a drink, order a meal or just sit and enjoy the great views of Doi Suthep.

If you do decide to order a meal the menu is, depending on which restaurant you stop at, very reasonably priced and delicious. One of my favorites dishes is the fried seafood curry. The whole fried fish with Thai herbs is quite delicious as well.

In 2011 Jonathan Look decided to change his life and pursue adventures instead of comfort and possessions. His goal is to travel the world solo; one country at a time, one year at a time. To accomplish this he got rid of most of his possessions, packed up what little he saw as necessities and headed out. His goal is to spend ten years discovering new places, meeting new people and taking the time to learn about them, their values and their place on this tiny planet. He embraces the philosophy that says a person is the sum of their experiences and rejects the fraud of modern consumerism that makes people into slaves of their consumption. He doesn’t intend to be modern day ascetic, just more mindful of his place in the world and to make decisions according to that new standard.
