This is the second part of the day. You find the first part here: Driving to Mae Hong Son. We wanted to visit the long bamboo bridge Su Tong Pae and did not find the place. After we took some pictures at another temple we drove back to a village and asked the locals. They did point out the right temple for us.
The name of the bridge translates as ‘successful prayer’ in the Tai Yai language. It does link the temple and the village of Kung Mai Saak. Build very simple out of bamboo and supported by wood to lift it over the rice fields. The villagers constructed the bamboo bridge so the monks have it easier to come to town and go back to their temple.

Smaller temples on the side
The smallest bananas i ever saw!
Make a wish temple – that is what I named it. Clever biz idea. We gave 20 Bath each for a piece of bamboo. The monk seemed pleased and so where we :-)
Kathleen did put her wish up
I have to say that Grace is deep when she is not in her Kung Fu world…

Temple and lake in Mae Hong Son
Inside the main viharn at Wat Chong Klang temple in Mae Hong Son they have a Ratan Buddha. Never saw one of those before!
You can get one of the boats to let it float in the fountain behind.
