The lake is really beautiful. You can hire a longtail boat in Sangkhlaburi to take you on a ride on this very large, man-made lake. The price is 300 bath for 1 to 6 people for touring the submerged temple and other old wat.

... really allows you to appreciate how beautiful it is. It's not five-stars for comfort, but it's a lot easier than you might imagine. The views are stunning and you get to see some out-of-the-way fishing villages as you are towed around. Along the way,...More

We really enjoyed a 90 minute boat ride from the bamboo jetty under the Mon bridge. Two pagodas and the sunken village were interesting but it was the beautiful atmospheric lake itself that was the star. Worth doing!

Spent 4 days being pulled around on a house boat. So quiet! The weather was hot and the lake was flat. Warm and clear water, beautiful scenery.

The lake is really beautiful. You can rent a boat and visit many places around. One of them is a temple which remains under the water during the rainy season. It is also very interesting, in Sangklaburi to visit the floating village and the mon...More

Beautiful scenery, beautiful view. Remember that the amount of water depends on when you visit. During the hot season there will be very little water. Grab a bite to eat at one of the nice hotel restaurants overlooking the lake.
