Relaxing and beautiful atmosphere for such a small lake. The view of the wat at night was gorgeous. We enjoyed sitting and watching the world go by. The surrounding mountains can also be seen.

The lake is a pleasurably relaxing and safe place day or night. Around its perimeter are restaurants, quiet bars, temple, night market and tourist shops.

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...More

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.

Hi there, as the other people have indicated it's about 4 hours or so by bus - very lovely as long as you are not barfing all the way as it is a very very hairpin bendy ride. Mae Hong Son is one of my most favourite places... More
