Bua Tong Waterfalls
Around 50 kilometres (30 miles) from Chiang Mai are the beautiful Bua Tong Waterfalls, they are easily reached by motorbike, car or songtaow. From the Chiang Mai Superhighway and the big intersection just after the Mae Ping bridge, with the massive road works currently being undertaken, you will head along the 1001 Road towards Maejo.
Well you keep following it until just after the 46 km road marker. You will come to a big checkpoint area and you turn the right down the road about 3 kilometres (2 miles) to the picnic grounds above the falls.
Mat – be sure to take along one of those eating mats, that you can sit on.
