Hi there! 👋 I’m Joanna, author of The Blond Travels. If you find my articles helpful, I’d be happy if you could follow me on Instagram, or . Support from readers like you means a lot to me and helps to keep this website alive. Thank you! 🙏

I usually travel to Chiang Mai during the cool season, when the temperatures are low enough to actually be outside. However, very often it is still hot in the afternoon. So, on the weekends I look for a place, where I can get some shade and rest in the nature. Recently, I’ve gone to Dantewada Land of Angels Waterfall Park – the newest addition to many attractions around Chiang Mai.

Chris and I decided to go to Dantewada on our way to the mountains. The day was sunny and it seemed that in the afternoon it’s going to be more than 30 degrees, so it was the perfect day to jump on the scooter and ride outside the city.
We got up in the morning, packed our bags and were off in no time.

Dantewada turned out to be a bit different from what we expected, but I think that it’s a good place for a cool afternoon, especially if you have kids. They will have the best time playing in the water, running around the gardens and feeding the little goats.

A little bit about Dantewada Waterfall Park

The park is a nice place for a walk.

When you see Dantewada Waterfall Park on Instagram, you might think that it’s a big waterfall with some fields around it. But, in fact, it’s a theme park, which consists of waterfalls, caves, pathways, colourful fields and some nice places to sit down.

The area is huge and you might need a few hours to see everything.

This place is for families with kids and those, that would like to get out of the city, see something different and spent a relaxing time in a park. If you’re looking for more of an adventure, then it’s best to go to the Sticky Waterfall or drive around Samoeng Loop.

What can you see and do there?

The park is huge and the main attraction is a big waterfall with some colourful fields at the bottom of it. This is probably the most picturesque spot in the park, but there are other pretty areas as well.

There are plenty of benches and tables to sit down.

When you enter the park, you will go through a few caves with water falling down around it. You can walk inside and cool off a little here.

    Dantewada Waterfall Park includes a number of walkways among big trees. On their trunks and on the ground there are special sprinkles attached, which create mist. It not only looks nice, but it also creates a lower temperature, which is a nice change to the heat of Chiang Mai.

    These waterfalls are really lovely to look at. They look very natural.

    Goats are a nice addition, too. They lounge behind a fence, in a little garden. You can grab some food and feed them. It’s also possible to play with the little ones. Be careful though, they are really naughty!

    The most popular part are the colourful fields, where a lot of Thai girls take Instagram photos.

    Facilities

    The park includes all the facilities you may need. There are toilets, small shops, cafes and stalls that sell coffee and snacks.

    I recommend to go for khao soi to a small restaurant, which is just outside the park, next to the entrance gate and opposite the parking.

    How to get to Dantewada Land of Angels Waterfall Park?

    I know I don’t look happy here, but trust me, I was!

    The park is located around 40 minutes from Chiang Mai. We went there by a scooter. The drive is OK. The road is busy, so stick to the left.

    You can hire a private driver if you’re afraid to drive by yourself, or rent a songthaew, if you have more people with you.

    Another option is to have a local guide with you. You can find one on TakeMeTour. They offer already made tours, but you can message a guide and ask them to take you there and to some other places in the area.

    The entrance to the park costs 60 Baht for an adult, from 4 years old. Prices for food, snacks, and drinks inside the park are reasonable. The restaurants outside the park also charge normal rates.

    Opening times

    The park is open every day from 8 am to 6 pm.

    Visiting Dantewada Land of Angels Waterfall Park is a good idea, if you have some spare time. It’s a nice spot to cool off and see something different. I think families with children will have the best of times here.
