Dam Water Body Must See
Cheow Lan Lake represents a huge structure responsible for the creation of Cheow Larn Lake, popular for its scenery and recreational activities. Limestone outcrops and cliffs tower against the sides of the lake covered by dense jungles. Hike through the forest and keep your eyes peeled for exotic animals and plants like elephants, monkeys, and the world’s largest flower, Rafflesia. You can also arrange fishing tours and try to catch a huge variety of species; try staying overnight on a floating bungalow.

  • A must visit place when you come to Thailand or Surathani. 1 day is not enough to visit this place. Cayaking overhere is ideal. The view is breathtaking.  more »
  • Such an incredible beautiful place! We thought sleeping on the lake was a bit to expensive and we didn’t want to book a group tour so we ended up going with a private boat. If you go to the pier yours...  more »

  • One of the best experiences I've had in Thailand. You have to see it to believe it. It's absolutely breathtaking.
  • If you are looking for an unforgatabke boat trip this is a must do. Its like being in a movie with paradisiac decors. You can book a tour and go around by boat and get some nice seafood when the trip is finish.
  • Small food stands and shops here. Clean restrooms. take a boat ride through the dam/lake! We didn't think it was worth it to stay on the lakehouses; they wanted to charge us 3000 baht total for boat ride there, one night stay, dinner and breakfast, and boat ride back the next day. so we paid 900 baht for a two people tour for two hours instead. It's 1800 to rent a private boat/guide for 2 hours. we drove all around the lake, stopped at a few viewpoints, and stopped at a lakehouse for a dip in the water. there is a restaurant there too if you want a bite to eat or something to drink. once we stopped there we had a chance to see the lakehouse rooms and we were glad we didnt spend the money to stay the night there! it was nice, but not 3000 baht worth.
  • Amazing views on the lake! A must do if you like nature.
  • Take a boat to an amazingly beautiful place!
