 |  April 1, 2018

As we enter into the hottest months here in Chiang Mai, everyone is looking for a way to escape the heat. If you find yourself desperate for a cool-down, check out these spots for some refreshing dips, thrills, and nature escapes.

Mae Sa Waterfall

For those looking for something natural, why not pop over to the Mae Sa Waterfall and escape your hot-weather woes. There is a short hike to get you nice and sweaty before you cool off in one of the eight tiers of waterfall lagoons.

A Hotel Pool

Take your pick from hundreds of hotel pools such as the stylish rooftop pool at akyra Manor or Le Meridien, or older but more classic pools such as Lotus Pang Suan Kaew or Shangri-La. Each hotel charges differently so go with your budget, and your style.

Friendly Slip n Fly

A simple slide and a big pool below that is surrounded by a café and a bar. Perfect for escaping the inner city heat without having to leave the inner city.

Tube Trek Water Park

This is by far the most modern and exciting waterpark in the city, with giant slides and loop the loop water flumes that leave you gasping for breath before plunging into the pool below, although there are more mellow rides for all the family to enjoy.

Open 11am – 6pm
