    The Giant Chiang Mai. Giant Treehouse


    The best way to get there is the way I rode back to Chiang Mai. Go up the 118 and turn right on to the 3005. Going through San Kamphaeng is a nightmare due to the traffic.

    The Giant N18 53.514 E99 21.107

    Known as The Giant Chiang Mai Thailand. giant chiang mai (1).JPG

    They were really busy and they didn’t seem to be very well organised. I don’t know what the food or coffee was like because I couldn’t get a seat.

    But it was a nice riding up there and the structure was very impressive.

    I ate at Sounchan Coffee which is about 10 kms down the road. Really nice restaurant in a beautiful setting, with great food and coffee.

    I approached it from the other side of the mountain
    118 - 3005 - 4063 - TR at the zipline place along the Mae Wong past the waterfall,over the mountain.
    Past the Phupananun Eco Lodge and Thai Jungles - Viola
    All asphalt or concrete except near the very top where they are prepping the road for the pour.
    Steep on the Giant side, but nice day ride.

    A quick search in Overpass-turbo reveals 89 'nodes' / coffee shops in Open Street Map for northern Thailand.
    Se map below.

    I've attached a GPX file with all these 'nodes', so load up your GPS and go Coffee Racing. :):grinning:
