6. Try a Glamping Experience

Sunshine Doi Chang

A hillside glamping offers a nice mountain range and Doi Chang village view. We enjoy another sun down on the mountain. To be honest, I will never get bored of it

The tent was nice and clean, big enough up to 5 people. We ordered the set of BQQ for supper, enjoy the view until sundown. The host was so nice and ambitious, a family business gave us a warm welcome. It can be really cold at night, don’t forget to prepare some warm clothes!

Want to camp but don’t want to prepare the equipment’s? Put the glamping on your Doi Chang travel guide list
