Tips for you
We just had a free morning, and found a tuktuk, to take us Huay Tung Tao Lake. The Lake is bigger than I thought and the view is great, especially if you like to take some Photos. There are many huts, where you can eat, by the lake. The tuktuk driver said that during wet season, it will look much nicer, but for me it was still great in January
Ride your bicycle there. Canal road has bike lanes after the 700 years stadium. Beautiful scenery all around you!
