A temple on a island at Han Kumphawapi Lake

Han Kumphawapi Lake - Udon Thani Thailand

In 2016 in the not so early morning we did visit "Han Kumphawapi Lake", about 20 km south of Udon Thani city. This lake is famous for the red lotus flowers that blossom from Dec-Feb each year. So it is also called "Red Lotus Sea" or  in Thai "Talay Bua Deang". You can take a small boat to go over the lake to enjoy a sunrise over the beautiful red flowers. I have visited this lake more as a few times and did make some postings about is last year. So I will not bother you with that again. But there is also a small island in the lake where of course is a temple. As I had never visited this island it was a good day to do that. Following are some more photos.

One night in Bangkok and the world is your oyster

The journey of Traveling 2 Thailand did begin with One Night in Bangkok in 1985 and since 2009 it became a personal non-commercial travel blog as inspiration for traveling & motorbike riding in Thailand. Made just for the sheer love of traveling and sharing experience about traveling in South-East Asia. To travel beyond the beaten track & highlights. Enjoy!
