DBS at Thai hot springs

A Soothing Escape Picture a serene place where you can unwind amidst nature’s beauty. That’s different from what you’ll discover at Mae Khachan District Hot Springs, conveniently located just 36 kilometers or a 40-minute drive from Chiang Mai.

There are a couple of cute cafes within walking distance of Camp Walker’s gate 6, but none of them stay open past 10pm until now. The party doesn’t start until 9pm at Madeleine Apsan Cafe located on Cafe (7th) Street– it’s a great option for yummy coffee and a late night sweet treat.

Thailand’s Dantewada Land of Angels Waterfall Park: Why You Should Go

Me at Dantewada Land of Angels Waterfall Park

However, the city also boasts some that have nothing to do with nature. Many of these artificial waterfalls are at Danteqada Land of Angels Water Park. To switch things up, we decided to check out a Dantewada Land of Angels Waterfall Park with a cafe (yes, you read that right!) because it’s conveniently located on our route to Mon Jam, our destination for the day.
