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.

This is just an ordinary lake in this sleepy town. It has a temple next to it that enhances its presence. The reflection of the temple in the lake makes a good photo.

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.

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.

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.

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
