Hourly : 8h – 20h
Price : 50 bahts by people

It is possible to take two different directions: go up the river and be in peace with a lot of nature or go down the river and navigate in Chiang Mai.
Don’t forget that you’ll have to come back to the temple, so don’t go too far if it’s getting late.
Along the river, some restaurants and bars have a pontoon, so it is possible to take a break.
For people who would like to take the opportunity to meet other kayakers, from time to time there are kayak outings organized on Facebook:
