Inland Sea #1

On a daily basis, Thailand is full of surprises.

 

Recently we heard about a beach resort in our province of Surin. Surin is landlocked, with the closest Thailand seaside about 350km South of our house. So...we went to investigate.

 

This is Thunggular lake...abut 120km North of our house...in Surin Province, but close to the next Province of RoiEt.

 

It is a lake of about 200 hectares area. Its water is clean, and distinctly green/blue. It has a narrow sandy beach. There are floating shade-houses for the visitor to hire...Kitchens offer the usual Thailand beach fare which is delivered to the shade-houses. The shade-houses serve as a barrier to enable safe water-play in fairly shallow water. On the other side is deeper water, for jet-skiis tugging banana boats...just like a typical Thailand beach.

 

I admit to being pleasantly surprised. It works...a long day trip for us but an ocean beach would be a long-weekend excursion. Hire of facilities and food prices are quite reasonable. Our car-full of kids had a fine day out!

Looks like an eminently practical arrangement.

A pleasant surprise indeed, and how nice to see this family themed undertaking operating so well
Ray: Not what you would expect to find in this area, Chris...someone had a bold dream, and it seems to working out.
Quite a discovery Ray.
Ray: I expect we will revisit occasionally, Bill.
I suspect the children will want to go there again, and again, and again.......
Ray: I believe it has a lot of appeal, Brian.

Good idea to separate the jet skis from the rest. When I rule the world, I'm banning jet skis and leaf blowers; both curses on society wink
Ray: Oh Mighty Ruler...your intended bans will not cause me to shed tears.
they are all having fun Ray... good presentation....petersmile
Ray: All good fun here, Peter.
A great find - looks as though everyone enjoyed themselves!
Ray: A good place for the kids to have fun, while being supervised by parents in comfort, Tom.

it does look like well stocked with quite some stuff to attract the visitors. at 120kms, it is not too bad a distance.
Ray: Three hours of driving for a day at the "beach"...not too difficult, Ayush.
I love the shots along with your great story.
Ray: Thank you, Mary.

I enjoyed this day out, and Na is talking of a repeat this week while we have a house full of kids during the school holidays.
