Samut Sakhon ~ Hidden gem in Thailand ðŸ‡¹ðŸ‡­

Hey all‌ How have you spent your 2018 year end break❓⁉

SiennyLovesDrawing 👩🏻 would like to sharing 👩🏻‍💻📝 about her 2018 year end travelling 🎒🕶👟🧢 with Take Me Tour, Thailand 🇹🇭

Pick 1⃣ ~ Samut Sakhon from Bangkok: Salt Farm Tour & Homemade Seafood ~ 

Yes ✅, she 👩🏻 has booked 👩🏻‍💻🛒 more than a tour…do stay tune for her next blogging ya 👩🏻‍💻📝

Actually not just a wide variety of day tours, Take Me Tour also providing private car 🚗🚙 airport transfer ✈, SiennyLovesDrawing 👩🏻 has booked 👩🏻‍💻🛒✅ for a few & really impressed 👍🏻🀩 with its reliable, safe & comfy ride 🚗🚙 to/ from Don Mueang International Airport ✈

Do consider for your convenience especially with night 🌃🌌🛬 arrival ya

Before she 👩🏻 has decided on this tour, she 👩🏻 has read 📖 about the local expert of this said tour named Khun Hansa 🙋🏻‍♀ who has introduced herself as a wanderer in this small village & then become a close friend to many villagers 👫👭👬

TH4.JPG

During the tour, SiennyLovesDrawing 👩🏻 has observed that Khun Hansa 🙋🏻‍♀ really having a great 👍🏻 relationship with the villagers 👭👬👫 & communicating well 🗣👥👀👥 with them. Definitely a strong healthy bonding 👍🏻🀝 & friendship being built, bravo 👏🏻🙌🏻 to her 🙋🏻‍♀‌

She 👩🏻 also truly believes that Khun Hansa 🙋🏻‍♀has chosen ✅ to lead this day tour to introduce to all guests 👬👭👫 about this small village in a less travelled  province ~ Samut Sakhon, Thailand 🇹🇭 i.e. from the salt water 💊💧 gate, mangrove forest 🌳🌳 , salt farm, home made seafoods 🍜🍎🊀🊐🐟 etc.

Khun Hansa 🙋🏻‍♀ also aims to help to boost ⬆ the economy of this small village & increase ⬆ the earning power 💰 of the villagers 👭👫👬 here especially during the raining ☔🌧 season where most of the salt farmers here will be experiencing the low ⬇ salt harvesting

Hmm…How’s this day tour thoughout❓⁉

She 👩🏻 woke up early that morning 🔅🔆 & went for a local Thai “bak kut teh” breakfast 😋🀀 , a non-halal dish ~ herb pork 🐖🐷🐜 soup 🍲🥣 served with rice 🍛😋🀀 It’s just a stall outside of a local Thai 🇹🇭👫‘s home 🏠🏡 & within walking 🚶🏻‍♀ distance from her hotel 🏢 named Bangkok Loft Inn 

This hotel 🏢 is located at📍55 Somdet Phra Chao Taksin Rd., Bangyeerua, Thonburi, Bangkok 10600, Thailand 🇹🇭 A nice 👍🏻 comfy stay 🛌🚿🚜with its strategic location📍 i.e. 5⃣mins walking 🚶🏻‍♀ distance to the Wongwian Yai BTS skytrain station 🚉, very convenient 🆗🆒 More details for your hotel booking 👩🏻‍💻👚🏻‍💻🛒 via 🌐 http://www.bangkokloftinn.com/ 

After breakfast 🍜🍎😋🀀, she 👩🏻 then proceeded 🚶🏻‍♀to take the BTS skytrain 🚊 from Wongwian Yai station 🚉 Oppsss…Too early arrival 🔅🔆 at BTS station named Wutthakat 🚉, not because of the time difference ya…

Yes✅, she was about 1⃣ hour early from meet up @ 9⃣am to meet up with Khun Hansa 🙋🏻‍♀ as stated in her Take Me Tour booking 📌 Just too excited 😆 for the day tour, Ha…Ha…Don’t laugh 😆😂 at her ya

Yeah‌ A very nice 👍🏻 morning 🔅🔆 view with river 💊💧, long boat 🛶 & wat ⛩ from the BTS station 🚇 during her wait for the meet up 👩🏻🙋🏻‍♀

Hmm…She 👩🏻 was a bit lazy, else she would have walk🚶🏻‍♀to visit this wat  ⛩ nearby that morning 🔅🔆 Instead she 👩🏻 seated down in the BTS station 🚉 & then logged in to her social medias 📱 & catching up with her friends & family members 👫👭👬 with her new 🆕  Thai simcard named DTAC , more details via 🌐 https://www.dtac.co.th/en/move-to-dtac/

Khun Hansa 🙋🏻‍♀ was early to arrive too, so both 👩🏻🙋🏻‍♀ then started this day tour slightly early that the scheduled time of 9⃣am

Khun Hansa 🙋🏻‍♀ is so friendly & shares the same travel passion as SiennyLovesDrawing 👩🏻, hence lots of common interest to chit chat 🗣👀 about during their approximately 30mins journey 🚙 to Samut Sakhon province, also known by the locals as “Maha Chai” 😀

Both happily 😃 exchanged lots of respective travel stories, always a nice 👍🏻 meet & catch up with a travel lover during travel journeys 😁

As you have reading 📖 her earlier blogging 👩🏻‍💻📝 here, she 👩🏻 has visited plenty of mangrove parks 🌳🌳 in her home country ~ Malaysia 🇲🇟

However, this is SiennyLovesDrawing 👩🏻‘s 1⃣st visit to a Thailand 🇹🇭‘s natural coastal mangrove forest 🌳🌳, a home to a wide variety of birds 🊅🐊 & mudskippers 🐟🐟 & along the Gulf of Thailand 🌊🇹🇭

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

Not to missed a visit to its mini museum / perhaps more to a conservation project centre 💚💚 with a collection of whale 🐋🐳 skeletons, details about some small animals lived in this forest 🌳🌳 before as well as some its on-going marine conservation initiatives 🌊💚💚 here i.e. mangrove trees planting 🌳🌳, a bamboo 🎍🎋 border project to avoid further water 💊💧 & soil erosion to this forest 🌳🌳 etc.

These eco 💚💚 sustainable initiatives aim to buidling the bamboo borders 🎍🎋 within the mangrove forest 🌳🌳 were observed by SiennyLovesDrawing 👩🏻 during her visit to protect the mangroves 🌳 being sapling from the sea waves 🌊 ‘ destruction, then soil erosion 😧😲🙃

Khun Hansa 🙋🏻‍♀ also into eco tourism 💚 & a green person as SiennyLovesDrawing 👩🏻, so they have more conversational topics 🗣👀 Ha…Ha…it’s rare to meet a new friend 🙋🏻‍♀ with similar travel & conservation passionate 😉

Everything happens for a reason, then this Take Me Tour booking 👩🏻‍💻🛒✅ has now fulfilled 🆒🆗 her wish to visit a salt farm, so happy 😃‌

Salt farming is seasonal & visiting during the dry season between January to April would capture the best view 👍🏻😍

Sea water 💊💧 is 1⃣st being pumping into the farms.  Then, the sea water 💊💧will be evaporated over a period of time, the layers of salt will be manually collected by the salt farmers 👫👭👬
