This is a place you just want to sit and feed those hungry fishes. At night time, this area was a lot people sampling local foods. Very quiet in daytime.

One of the most visited places in the town. Not so majestic inside yet from the outside with the view of the lake can be nice. It also looks nice in the night with the lights.

On the appearance of a beautiful lake that adorns the city. Wonderful for walking, lying on the grass, peace, quiet, I simply think that this lake is gem Mae of Hong Song. During the day, a totally peaceful after dusk turns into a walkway, a street market, with numerous small stalls, lots of food stalls, and there is a massage... More

We visited the lake one afternoon whilst travelling around the area and it's well worth a visit. Make sure you buy some bread and feed the fish they are huge!!

While waiting for the market to get set up we sat in one of the lake gazebos and watched as children fed the fish. A very relaxing preface to the bustle of the market and a great spot to chat with fellow travelers.

Nice view of lake with the backdrops of Wat Chong Klang and Wat Chong Kham. The prominent white stupa is Chong Klang. If you want to have a three different scenic view of this temples i.e. early dawn for a misty view, morning fir a dayligjt view and evening for a lighted view and the reflection from the lake.

The lake is place right down town but not exactly the most appealing, with dirty waters and dead fish. The surrounding temples and the night market definitely make it worth it though!

A perfect place for a morning or evening stroll - you can walk all the way around in 20 minutes. During the day we visited the three lovely Buddhist wats and had a drink at one of the coffee shops. At night there is a lively hill tribe market with crafts and food stalls. We are especially fond of the... More
