Well here I am finally catching up on some blogs in an attempt to fulfil my promise to you made a few days ago. My friends left for Bangkok this morning so I will try and catch up on a few blogs before my next visitors arrive in a few days!
I only found out about Wat Saprasansuk a few days before the Martins arrived after seeing a few pics on Facebook taken by Mrs Darwin of we love ubon fame. I immediately thought that it would be a good place to take a family with kids.
Even though our trip was rushed due to leaving late as well as rain I am still glad we went. It is not the best maintained temple I have seen but it is rather unique due to a few different aspects.
The entrance to the temple for one is a little different!
The other aspect that I liked was that they had built a boat out onto a lake that was surrounded by heaps of fish that you were allowed to feed.
There is a small shop selling handicrafts but apart from that we didn’t see anyone else while we were there apart from when we were leaving when a small mini bus with Thai tourists turned up. Not a single monk was to be found. I am assuming that they were all out at a ceremony somewhere.
Here some other photos that Clint took that day.
So, where is this temple? Good question! I really should learn how to include google earth place marks. It is located on the airport boundary at the north eastern end. Take soi 42 from the main road and follow the signs.
Coming up next… The Sunee water park in Ubon.
