Thailand’s more than just shopping and eating sprees. The next time you hit up this beautiful country, plan your trip around this hidden gem in Chiang Mai, the adventure capital of Thailand.

The Hang Dong Canyon – also commonly known as the Grand Canyon Chiang Mai – is an unbelievable watering hole less than an hour from the main city.

Here, you can swim, sunbathe, cliff jump, picnic or even enjoy a barbeque at a grill. The place is built for varying levels of cliff jumpers, from starter ramps to a terrifying 16m-high jump.

The easiest way is to get here is to rent a car or a motorbike and key “Grand Canyon Chiang Mai” into your GPS. There are no lockers here so have someone in your group keep an eye on your belongings at all times, or you could stash your items beneath your motorcycle seat.
