... 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

This experience is one of the very best we have tried for many years. We booked 4 days on a houseboat in Sangkla Buri, Khao Laem National park. We booked through lakesafarithailand.com, which is as far as we know and could see in the area,...More

We rode our bikes from Kanchanaburi via road 3199 to Sinakharin Lake. Took the ferry over, and then onto road 3183, and up 323 to Sangkhlaburi. A fantastic road trip. If you do it, though, make sure you download the map for offline navigation, because...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.

An absolutely lovely place to chill out, catch some sun and cool off in the waters of this lake. We hired canoes for half a day for around 150 baht and enjoyed every minute of it! Highly recommend it to any visiting the area!
