We slept well last night at the Sri U-Thong Grand Hotel in Suphan Buri, the air conditioning was better adjusted.
After breakfast we pack, because we go back to Latkrabang. At about ten o'clock we check out, the hotel had forgotten the extra night, we didn't, so we just reported that.

We first drive to U-thong to view a temple and statues.
The temple is Wat Khao Phra Si Sanphet. This temple is partly on top of a hill, and that is quite a climb, it is also very hot, just like the last few days. It is worth it, the buildings are very beautiful and the view too. The rock off the hill seems to consist of all layers.
Then we drive to Bhutsaya Khiri Suvarnabhumi Big Buddha, an old quarry where one giant Buddha statue has been carved, and a tunnel. It is very hot there A monk comes to tell us that eventually there must be 5 Buddha statues.

We buy something to eat on the way and drive back to Suphan Buri to go back to Latkrabang via Ang Thong.
It is not very busy en route, and with two breaks we are in Latkrabang at four o'clock.
We clean up the mess and Moue calls if we want to join us for dinner at an Isaan restaurant. That's what we want, and we're going to Zaap Classic on Thanon King Kaew, where we've been before. The food is okay, the service messy.
