One Day Trip to Suphan - Buri: Wat Pa Lay Lei

Suphan - Buri or City of Gold owing to the name derives from the Sanskrit words Survarna (gold) and Puri (town) is an historical place because -among other things- the legendary elephant battle between King Naresuan the Great and the crown prince of Burma took place in this area a bit more than 500 years ago.  Besides the importance of historical heritage, Suphan Buri is also an amazing place owing to its natural attractions such as caves, waterfalls, bird parks, fish sanctuaries, crocodrile farm, huge rice plantation, ancient Buddhist temples and even buffalo village and a 100 years old Samchuk market. All these wonders is located just a hundred kilometers away from the busy, crowded and noisy city of Bangkok. 

Last week, a trip to this place was organized by MU, so I joined it. We visit 3 places: Wat Pa Lei Lai, Sam Chuk 100 years old market and Buffalo Village. Due to the number of pictures, each place is posted independently. So, click on your desired place to be redirected to it and see the pictures of that place.

*Blogger has changed its template, now I cannot write any comment below each picture...  I need time to fix it... or to learn how it works.
