Sangkhlaburi is a high altitude city at the ends of Thailand, just 25 kilometers from Burma border. It has the beautiful Vajiralongkorn Lake (Khao Laem) where most travellers take a boat ride, rest and enjoy the day. Most part of the city is covered by dense forests and limestone ranges. Sunken temple and Temple Wat Mon are the two unique and spectacular temples which should be a must visit in Sangkhlaburi.
Sangkhlaburi is a culturally diverse area with Karen, Mon, Thai and Burmese settlers. A lot of Burmese residents face inequality issues because they are not Thai citizens, but still everyone manages to live cooperatively. The weather being cool because of the high altitude and presence of the Vajiralongkorn lake, it adds an increased charm to this destination. It is divided into the 'town centre' and 'Mon village', both of which are connected by the second longest hand-made bridge in the world, the 'wooden bridge'. A seven hours journey from Bangkok will get you to this stunning beauty. Sangkhlaburi remains one of the favorite tourist attractions of Thailand.
