She πŸ‘©πŸ» also truly believes that Khun Hansa πŸ™‹πŸ»β€β™€οΈhas chosen βœ… to lead this day tour to introduce to all guests πŸ‘¬πŸ‘­πŸ‘« about this small village in a less travelledΒ  province ~ Samut Sakhon, Thailand πŸ‡ΉπŸ‡­ i.e. from the salt water πŸ’¦πŸ’§ gate, mangrove forest 🌳🌳 , salt farm, home made seafoods πŸ½πŸ΄πŸ¦€πŸ¦πŸŸ etc.

Khun Hansa πŸ™‹πŸ»β€β™€οΈΒ also aims to help to boost ⬆️ the economy of this small village & increase ⬆️ the earning power πŸ’° of the villagers πŸ‘­πŸ‘«πŸ‘¬ here especially during the raining β˜”οΈπŸŒ§ season where most of the salt farmers here will be experiencing the low ⬇️ salt harvesting

Hmm…How’s this day tour thoughout❓⁉️

She πŸ‘©πŸ» woke up early that morning πŸ”…πŸ”† & went for a local Thai “bak kut teh” breakfast πŸ˜‹πŸ€€ , a non-halal dish ~ herb pork πŸ–πŸ·πŸ½ soup 🍲πŸ₯£ served with riceΒ πŸ›πŸ˜‹πŸ€€ It’s just a stall outside of a local Thai πŸ‡ΉπŸ‡­πŸ‘«‘s home 🏠🏑 & within walking πŸšΆπŸ»β€β™€οΈ distance fromΒ her hotel 🏒 namedΒ Bangkok Loft InnΒ 

This hotel 🏒 is located atπŸ“55 Somdet Phra Chao Taksin Rd., Bangyeerua, Thonburi, Bangkok 10600, Thailand πŸ‡ΉπŸ‡­ A nice πŸ‘πŸ» comfy stay πŸ›ŒπŸšΏπŸš½with its strategic locationπŸ“ i.e. 5️⃣mins walking πŸšΆπŸ»β€β™€οΈ distance to the Wongwian Yai BTS skytrain station πŸš‰, very convenient πŸ†—πŸ†’ More details for your hotel booking πŸ‘©πŸ»β€πŸ’»πŸ‘¨πŸ»β€πŸ’»πŸ›’ via 🌐 http://www.bangkokloftinn.com/Β 

After breakfast πŸ½πŸ΄πŸ˜‹πŸ€€, she πŸ‘©πŸ» then proceeded πŸšΆπŸ»β€β™€οΈto take the BTS skytrain 🚊 from Wongwian Yai station πŸš‰Β Oppsss…Too early arrival πŸ”…πŸ”† atΒ BTS stationΒ named Wutthakat πŸš‰, not because of the time difference ya…

Yesβœ…, she was about 1️⃣ hour early from meet up @ 9️⃣am to meet up with Khun HansaΒ πŸ™‹πŸ»β€β™€οΈΒ as stated in her Take Me Tour booking πŸ“Œ Just too excited πŸ˜† for the day tour, Ha…Ha…Don’t laugh πŸ˜†πŸ˜‚ at her ya

Hmm…She πŸ‘©πŸ» was a bit lazy, else she would have walkπŸšΆπŸ»β€β™€οΈto visit this wat Β β›©Β nearby that morning πŸ”…πŸ”† Instead she πŸ‘©πŸ» seated down in the BTS station πŸš‰ & then logged in to her social medias πŸ“± & catching up with her friends & family members πŸ‘«πŸ‘­πŸ‘¬Β with her new πŸ†• Β Thai simcard named DTAC , more details via 🌐 https://www.dtac.co.th/en/move-to-dtac/

Khun Hansa πŸ™‹πŸ»β€β™€οΈΒ was early to arrive too, so both πŸ‘©πŸ»πŸ™‹πŸ»β€β™€οΈ then started this day tour slightly early that the scheduled time of 9️⃣am

Khun Hansa πŸ™‹πŸ»β€β™€οΈΒ is so friendly & shares the same travel passion as SiennyLovesDrawing πŸ‘©πŸ», hence lots of common interest to chit chat πŸ—£πŸ‘€ about during their approximately 30mins journey πŸš™ to Samut Sakhon province, also known by the locals as “Maha Chai” πŸ˜€

Both happily πŸ˜ƒ exchanged lots of respective travel stories, always a nice πŸ‘πŸ» meet & catch up with a travel lover during travel journeys 😁

As you have reading πŸ“– her earlier blogging πŸ‘©πŸ»β€πŸ’»πŸ“ here, she πŸ‘©πŸ» has visited plenty of mangrove parks 🌳🌳 in her home country ~ Malaysia πŸ‡²πŸ‡Ύ

However, this is SiennyLovesDrawing πŸ‘©πŸ»‘s 1️⃣st visit to a Thailand πŸ‡ΉπŸ‡­‘s natural coastal mangrove forest 🌳🌳,Β a home to a wide variety of birds πŸ¦…πŸ¦ & mudskippers 🐟🐟 & along the Gulf of Thailand πŸŒŠπŸ‡ΉπŸ‡­

Oppsss…The mudskippers 🐟🐟 here are fat & huge, it was high tides 🌊 during her visit, so not able ❌ to note the colourful Hermit crabs πŸšπŸ¦€crawling on the muddy field 😌☺️

Not to missed a visit to its mini museum / perhaps more to a conservation project centre πŸ’šπŸ’š with a collection of whale πŸ‹πŸ³ skeletons, details about some small animals lived in this forest 🌳🌳 before as well asΒ some its on-going marine conservation initiatives πŸŒŠπŸ’šπŸ’š here i.e. mangrove trees planting 🌳🌳, a bamboo πŸŽπŸŽ‹ border project to avoid further water πŸ’¦πŸ’§ & soil erosion to this forest 🌳🌳 etc.

These eco πŸ’šπŸ’š sustainable initiatives aim to buidling the bamboo borders πŸŽπŸŽ‹ within the mangrove forest 🌳🌳 were observed by SiennyLovesDrawing πŸ‘©πŸ» during her visit to protect the mangroves 🌳 being sapling from the sea waves 🌊 ‘ destruction, then soil erosion πŸ˜§πŸ˜²πŸ™ƒ

Khun Hansa πŸ™‹πŸ»β€β™€οΈΒ also into eco tourism πŸ’š & a green person as SiennyLovesDrawing πŸ‘©πŸ»,Β so they have more conversational topics πŸ—£πŸ‘€ Ha…Ha…it’s rare to meet a new friend πŸ™‹πŸ»β€β™€οΈ with similar travel & conservation passionate πŸ˜‰

Guess what❓⁉️

Khun Hansa πŸ™‹πŸ»β€β™€οΈnot just a great πŸ‘πŸ» local expert in sharing her knowledge about this village, she is also a great photographer πŸ“Έ

Special thank you πŸ™πŸ» for theΒ beautiful 😍 photos πŸ“Έ of SiennyLovesDrawing πŸ‘©πŸ» during this mangrove forest 🌳🌳 walkπŸšΆπŸ»β€β™€οΈya πŸ€—

Next, Khun Hansa πŸ™‹πŸ»β€β™€οΈΒ also brought her to a local cafe πŸ½β˜•οΈΒ (Hmm…In Thai name which SiennyLovesDrawing is unable to share the name, refer photo below for the cafe details) by her friend named Joy πŸ’πŸ»β€β™€οΈ & her adorable shy daughter named Minnie πŸ‘§πŸ» It was a pleasure to meet them & had a quick chit chat about Joy πŸ’πŸ»β€β™€οΈ’s recent visit to her orchard plantation 🌱🌿 in Central of Thailand πŸ‡ΉπŸ‡­ , she plants 🌱🌿 for macadomia nuts πŸ₯œ , coffee trees β˜•οΈπŸŒ³, pineapples 🍍 etc. Love πŸ’— all the photos πŸ“ΈπŸ“± shared by Joy πŸ’πŸ»β€β™€οΈ, you will definitely note her passion in plantations πŸ’—πŸŒ±πŸŒΏ

IMG_0238.jpg

She πŸ‘©πŸ» has observed during the car πŸš™ journey towards the salt farm that some of the farmers πŸ‘¬πŸ‘¬πŸ‘¬ here busy hand picking cockles 🐚 in the farms πŸ˜„

Yeah‼️ Next, she πŸ‘©πŸ» has proceeded to visit the salt farm πŸ˜ƒ

Yes βœ…, the highlight ✨of this tour & she πŸ‘©πŸ» has been long awaited for. Hmm….Why❓⁉️

This is because she πŸ‘©πŸ» wanted to visit salt farm in Kampot village, Cambodia πŸ‡°πŸ‡­ during her Phnom Penh trip in Nov. However, due to a last mins plan, no ❌ hotel available 🏒 as it was the annual water πŸ’¦πŸ’§ festival celebration πŸŽ‰πŸŽŠ , so SiennyLovesDrawing πŸ‘©πŸ» was forced to cancel ❌ the Kampot visit plan, hence no ❌ chance to have her 1️⃣st visit to a salt farm πŸ˜ŒπŸ˜”

Everything happens for a reason, then this Take Me Tour booking πŸ‘©πŸ»β€πŸ’»πŸ›’βœ… has now fulfilled πŸ†’πŸ†— her wish to visit a salt farm, so happy πŸ˜ƒβ€ΌοΈ

Salt farming is seasonal & visiting during the dry season between January to April would capture the best view πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ˜

Sea water πŸ’¦πŸ’§ is 1️⃣st being pumping into the farms.Β  Then, the sea water πŸ’¦πŸ’§will be evaporated over a period of time, the layers of salt will be manually collected by the salt farmers πŸ‘«πŸ‘­πŸ‘¬

She πŸ‘©πŸ» has met with the salt farmers πŸ‘¬πŸ‘­πŸ‘«’ family, learnt & discovered how the salt formed & also enjoy a home cooked lunch 🍽🍴with the top πŸ‘†πŸ»notch salt & fresh seafood πŸ¦€πŸ¦πŸŸ served from the salt farm to table πŸ˜‹πŸ€€
