Visiting Sangkhlaburi in 2005

I did write about traveling to Sangkhlaburi already a few times so you might have seen some of the photos shown here. This photos are from visiting Sangkhlaburi in 2005. The previous posting is about photos from 2004. In 2005 I tried to make some photos of the same location, what makes a nice comparison. Sangkhlaburi is famous for its location along Khao Laem Lake (Vajiralongkorn Lake) in the Songaria River, about 230 km west of Bangkok. It is famous for its sunken temple in the lake, the longest wooden bridge of Thailand and the Wat Wang Wiwekarn. And Sangkhlaburi is a popular weekend destination for people from Bangkok. It is also the gate-way to Myanmar at the famous Tree Pagoda Pass. In 2005 the water level of the lake was low and the lake was transformed back to the Songaria River. And the sunken temple was not sunken anymore. But we could still rent a house boat to spend a day on the water. Following are more photos of Sangkhlaburi.
