Here are some maps showing the area of the hike and a picture at the viewpoint.
If you want to join
Just turn up at the meeting place on the day. There is no need to let us know you are coming unless you are coming in a big group.
We will meet at 8:00 AM sharp at the Arboretum. Depending on how many people show up, we then go to Baan Doi Pui in available cars or we will take a Song Taew.
Transportation from the meeting point.
We either share cars if there are enough spaces in cars to fit everybody in, or we take a Song Taew. We would suggest a small donation to the driver towards petrol for a lift there and back, if sharing a car. Parking at Baan Doi Pui costs 30 Baht per car.
Bring around 2 liters of water or more, some kind of lunch or snacks, good footwear, hat, walking stick, insect repellant, sunblock, etc.
The Arboretum (otherwise known as Suan Luukachaat Huay Kaeow or Huay Kaeow Excercise park) is out along Huay Kaeow Rd.
From the moat driving out along Huay Kaeow Rd you will immediately pass Kad Suan Kaeow shopping mall on the left.
Go straight on through the first big intersection Amari Rincombe intersection.
Go straight on further past the Phucombe intersection (you will see a dunkin doughnut on the corner).
Go past the front entrance to Chiang Mai University.
After less than a kilometre you will see a small park on your left. This is the arboretum.
We meet at the car park just after the arboretum, well before Chiang Mai Zoo. It is a small car park, at the back there are some food stalls, away from the road. We meet about 10 meters in from the road.
See the maps below (click to enlarge them).
