Wat To Phae

This is a large, ornate Burmese-style (Shan) temple that legend has it was built teak raft builders who worked in the area (the name of the temple is literally ‘temple of raft assembling’!). The temple features a gold coloured, sphere-shaped Vihara and a Burmese-style Buddha image. It also contains a famed Shan tapestry. This temple is certainly worth a visit if it is convenient, but not worth going out of your way for.

How to get there:
Located in Khum Yuam the site is well catered for by buses and songtaews that take you directly to the site.
