Bamboo Rafting, Chiang Mai: 5 reviews and 4 photos

  enjoy the ride!

Among the activities that we did for the day, I enjoyed river rafting the most. The activity lasted for about an hour. The small raft traversed through a shallow stream with the help of a raftman (^o^ is this correct?...assumed it is as we are riding a raft instead of a boat). The place is tranquil and not very touristy so the ride was very relaxing. Along the way, we saw the beauty of nature...dragonflies, colorful birds, butterflies, unusual-looking insects and even water snake! At the end of it are dozens of huts with lots of locals having their picnic.

Please do not miss this one as some people do. My mother passed this one up because she thought it would be a rough ride. She got very tired from the initial hike that we did.

It would be nice if you could bring a waterproof camera...so many photo opportunities for those lovely creatures. The guide kept our camera for us because there is a big tendency that it will get wet.
