Grand Canyon Water Park Chiang Mai

Grand Canyon Water Park is actually an unused quarry in Chiang Mai. There are two “lagoons” here, one for cliff jumping (10m!), and the other is family-friendly bouncing water park.

 

I just found out about this Grand Canyon Water Park one night before we flew off to Thailand, and I knew we just had to squeeze in a few hours into our busy itinerary.

 

I know my adrenalin-pumped kids will love the water park.
JUST IMAGINE “bouncing castles”, Ninja Warriors, and SOC (Obstacle course!)

 

 

No way we are going to miss Ninja actions aka Ninja Warrior, in a water-based setting. A scenic sunset photo before I slide 5m down.

We would recommend minimum 2 hours to soak in all the Fun. Although the area might not be huge or contain many slides, the obstacles can easily keep my kids entertained for minimum of 3 hours!

Safety is always our top priority. Grand Canyon Water Park has a lot of life-guards on patrol, they were very helpful in pulling the kids out of the water (Parents might be exhausted from all the chasing and jump)

Yes, even adults will find the slides and obstacles irresistible.

Life jacket is a must for all participants. Parents must follow the younger kids around. Just in case they try to play hide and seek and go below the floats!

Water is cool, black and lifeless, water is quite well maintained.

My photos and Video cannot do justice to this fabulous water park!  I was sold when I saw this video (link) !

Relaxing stay at Bintan Lagoon Resort

[ Sponsored ]

Over the December school holidays, we were invited to Bintan Lagoon Resort (BLR).

The first impression which struck us is the serene surroundings and vast tracts of land.
There are a total of 417 rooms in Bintan Lagoon Resort!

Breakfast buffet at Fiesta was always a cheery experience, the open concept and colourful interior, sea view with constant breeze. We took our own sweet time to enjoy the pastries and continental spread.

Pretty landscaping, the coconut trees give the resort a relaxing vibe.

Blue and white over the horizon and pool, sea and clouds. Go on, rest on the beach deck couches, snooze if you wish to 🙂

Life can be carefree, until the kids pull you along to explore the resort.

Climb up the slope and watch the ferry moors, the ferry terminal is at resort’s door step!

Looking over the horizon.

The lobby is decorated with pretty wooden carpentry work.

Bintan Lagoon Resort offers tons of opportunities to relax and chill.

Our active kids spend most of their time at Leisure Centre.

We suspect Jungle Gym would be kids’ favourite hideout.

Or pool fun (boat rental has nominal fee)

Golf driving range and archery, you can rent the buggy too (4 seater 350,000 Rupiah).

Those who wish to impress and romance your beau, the spacious suites are available for your luxurious honeymoon. Villas with private pool and personal buggy are available too.

Pretty landscaping all around.

But alas, monsoon season’s red flag meant it was not safe for seaside activities.

Lunch was Dim Sum and Chinese cuisine at Chop Chop, value for money and quite delicious too, the carrot cakes were surprisingly good.

We signed up for a Mangrove tour after lunch. Amazing to go up close and embrace the rich diversity surrounding a mangrove ecosystem.

Mangrove kiln (for charcoal burning) and traditional houses spotting.

Both the speedy boat ride and overhead mangroves canopy were exhilarating for us. As we ventured deeper, the waterway got narrower and shallower.


Spot the overhead snakes and monkeys!

Learning about the ecosystem of the mangroves, the mangrove pods. Our guide managed to grab some wild pitcher plants for us too.

Back on land, kids were treated to Magnums and adults packaged the “famous” Nasi Padang back, love the juicy and tender rendang beef!

Dinner was at beachfront restaurant Nelayan. Enjoy a sumptuous dinner as the waves lapped the sandy shoreline.

Tips for travellers : When Indonesians mention your order is only mild spiciness, they mean very spicy :p

Grilled Lombok Chicken was the best dish from our dinner, the chilli meshed into the chicken, and goes really well with plain rice. Sedap!

We have uploaded more photos on our Facebook album, you can visit our Day 1 Eco-Village activity too.

Bintan Resorts” generally refers to the area on the entire northern coast of the Indonesian Island of Bintan. There are at least 8 resorts around this area. You can get the latest updates about Bintan Lagoon Resort on their website and Facebook.
