The tranquil lake at Sangklaburee does not attract as many visitors as its serene beauty deserves. This is especially surprising considering how near it is to the lively riverside town of Kanchanaburee. Pickaboo is offering a trip to remember to this lush, green area with its haunting underwater temple in the lake.
During the rainy and winter seasons, you will be taken by boat to peer down through the clear water at the temple, of which only the bell tower is visible above the surface. Once a centre of worship in a thriving town, the temple was “drowned” when the water rose sharply after construction of the nearby dam. In the dry season, it is possible to visit the temple (an “Unseen Thailand” landmark) on foot.
The tour includes transport to and from Bangkok with a snack breakfast while travelling on day one and lunch at a friendly guesthouse when you arrive. On the first afternoon, you’ll enjoy a tour of the most scenic spots in Sangklaburee – the Mon Bridge is a favourite for selfies! After a set Thai dinner you’ll have a restful night at the cosy P. Guesthouse, far away from the bustle of the city.
After breakfast on the next morning, you’ll head off to the peaceful lake to view the submerged temple, a poignant reminder of life’s impermanence. Back at the guesthouse you’ll be given a tasty lunch before heading back to the city, reflecting on the idea that you should count your blessings, as life is unpredictable.
