Samut Sakhon ~ Hidden gem in Thailand đŸ‡č🇭

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

SiennyLovesDrawing đŸ‘©đŸ»Â would like to sharing đŸ‘©đŸ»â€đŸ’»đŸ“ about her 2018 year end travelling đŸŽ’đŸ•¶đŸ‘ŸđŸ§ą with Take Me Tour, Thailand đŸ‡č🇭

Pick 1ïžâƒŁ ~ Samut Sakhon from Bangkok: Salt Farm Tour & Homemade Seafood ~

Actually not just a wide variety of day tours, Take Me Tour also providing private car 🚗🚙 airport transfer ✈, SiennyLovesDrawing đŸ‘©đŸ» has booked đŸ‘©đŸ»â€đŸ’»đŸ›’âœ… for a few & really impressed đŸ‘đŸ»đŸ€© with its reliable, safe & comfy ride 🚗🚙 to/ from Don Mueang International Airport ✈

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

Before she đŸ‘©đŸ» has decided on this tour, she đŸ‘©đŸ» has read 📖 about the local expert of this said tour named Khun Hansa đŸ™‹đŸ»â€â™€ïžÂ who has introduced herself as a wanderer in this small village & then become a close friend to many villagers đŸ‘«đŸ‘­đŸ‘Ź

TH4.JPG

During the tour, SiennyLovesDrawing đŸ‘©đŸ» has observed that Khun Hansa đŸ™‹đŸ»â€â™€ïžÂ really having a great đŸ‘đŸ» relationship with the villagers đŸ‘­đŸ‘ŹđŸ‘« & communicating well đŸ—ŁđŸ‘„đŸ‘€đŸ‘„ with them. Definitely a strong healthy bonding đŸ‘đŸ»đŸ€ & friendship being built, bravo đŸ‘đŸ»đŸ™ŒđŸ» to her đŸ™‹đŸ»â€â™€ïžâ€Œïž

She đŸ‘©đŸ» also truly believes that Khun Hansa đŸ™‹đŸ»â€â™€ïžhas chosen ✅ to lead this day tour to introduce to all guests đŸ‘ŹđŸ‘­đŸ‘« about this small village in a less travelled  province ~ Samut Sakhon, Thailand đŸ‡č🇭 i.e. from the salt water 💩💧 gate, mangrove forest 🌳🌳 , salt farm, home made seafoods đŸœđŸŽđŸŠ€đŸŠđŸŸ etc.

Khun Hansa đŸ™‹đŸ»â€â™€ïžÂ also aims to help to boost âŹ†ïž the economy of this small village & increase âŹ†ïž the earning power 💰 of the villagers đŸ‘­đŸ‘«đŸ‘Ź here especially during the raining â˜”ïžđŸŒ§ season where most of the salt farmers here will be experiencing the low âŹ‡ïž salt harvesting

Hmm…How’s this day tour thoughout❓⁉

She đŸ‘©đŸ» woke up early that morning 🔅🔆 & went for a local Thai “bak kut teh” breakfast đŸ˜‹đŸ€€ , a non-halal dish ~ herb pork đŸ–đŸ·đŸœ soup đŸČđŸ„Ł served with riceÂ đŸ›đŸ˜‹đŸ€€ It’s just a stall outside of a local Thai đŸ‡čđŸ‡­đŸ‘«‘s home 🏠🏡 & within walking đŸš¶đŸ»â€â™€ïž distance from her hotel 🏱 named Bangkok Loft Inn 

This hotel 🏱 is located at📍55 Somdet Phra Chao Taksin Rd., Bangyeerua, Thonburi, Bangkok 10600, Thailand đŸ‡č🇭 A nice đŸ‘đŸ» comfy stay đŸ›ŒđŸšżđŸšœwith its strategic location📍 i.e. 5ïžâƒŁmins walking đŸš¶đŸ»â€â™€ïž distance to the Wongwian Yai BTS skytrain station 🚉, very convenient 🆗🆒 More details for your hotel booking đŸ‘©đŸ»â€đŸ’»đŸ‘šđŸ»â€đŸ’»đŸ›’ via 🌐 http://www.bangkokloftinn.com/ 

After breakfast đŸœđŸŽđŸ˜‹đŸ€€, she đŸ‘©đŸ» then proceeded đŸš¶đŸ»â€â™€ïž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 1ïžâƒŁ hour early from meet up @ 9ïžâƒŁam to meet up with Khun HansaÂ đŸ™‹đŸ»â€â™€ïžÂ 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 niceÂ đŸ‘đŸ»Â morning 🔅🔆 view with river 💩💧, long boatÂ đŸ›¶Â & wat ⛩ from the BTS station 🚇 during her wait for the meet up đŸ‘©đŸ»đŸ™‹đŸ»â€â™€ïž

Hmm…She đŸ‘©đŸ» was a bit lazy, else she would have walkđŸš¶đŸ»â€â™€ïžto visit this wat  ⛩ nearby that morning 🔅🔆 Instead she đŸ‘©đŸ» seated down in the BTS station 🚉 & then logged in to her social medias đŸ“± & catching up with her friends & family members đŸ‘«đŸ‘­đŸ‘ŹÂ with her new 🆕  Thai simcard named DTAC , more details via 🌐 https://www.dtac.co.th/en/move-to-dtac/

Khun Hansa đŸ™‹đŸ»â€â™€ïžÂ was early to arrive too, so both đŸ‘©đŸ»đŸ™‹đŸ»â€â™€ïž then started this day tour slightly early that the scheduled time of 9ïžâƒŁam

Khun Hansa đŸ™‹đŸ»â€â™€ïžÂ is so friendly & shares the same travel passion as SiennyLovesDrawing đŸ‘©đŸ», hence lots of common interest to chit chat đŸ—ŁđŸ‘€ 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 đŸ‘đŸ» meet & catch up with a travel lover during travel journeys 😁

As you have reading 📖 her earlier blogging đŸ‘©đŸ»â€đŸ’»đŸ“ here, she đŸ‘©đŸ» has visited plenty of mangrove parks 🌳🌳 in her home country ~ Malaysia đŸ‡ČđŸ‡Ÿ

However, this is SiennyLovesDrawing đŸ‘©đŸ»‘s 1ïžâƒŁst visit to a Thailand đŸ‡č🇭‘s natural coastal mangrove forest 🌳🌳, a home to a wide variety of birds 🩅🐩 & mudskippers 🐟🐟 & along the Gulf of Thailand 🌊đŸ‡č🇭

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 😌â˜ș

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 đŸ‘©đŸ» during her visit to protect the mangroves 🌳 being sapling from the sea waves 🌊 ‘ destruction, then soil erosion 😧đŸ˜Č🙃

Khun Hansa đŸ™‹đŸ»â€â™€ïžÂ also into eco tourism 💚 & a green person as SiennyLovesDrawing đŸ‘©đŸ», so they have more conversational topics đŸ—ŁđŸ‘€ Ha…Ha…it’s rare to meet a new friend đŸ™‹đŸ»â€â™€ïž with similar travel & conservation passionate 😉

She đŸ‘©đŸ» has shared a recent sad 😔 news 🗞📰 of the high âŹ†ïž potential of the de-gazette ❌ of Pulau Kukup Johor National Park 🌮 to Khun Hansa đŸ™‹đŸ»â€â™€ïž during this day tour, you may check out this said dissappointing 😔 online newsÂ đŸ‘©đŸ»â€đŸ’»đŸ‘šđŸ»â€đŸ’»đŸ—žđŸ“°Â via 🌐https://www.thestar.com.my/news/nation/2018/12/05/why-did-johor-quietly-degazette-pulau-kukup-national-park-asks-lawyers/

SiennyLovesDrawing đŸ‘©đŸ» has wrote đŸ‘©đŸ»â€đŸ’»đŸ“ about this Pulau Kukup Johor National Park 🌮 via link 🌐 https://siennylovesdrawing.wordpress.com/2018/02/18/traveloguemalaysia-pulau-kukup-tanjung-piai/

Guess what❓⁉

Khun Hansa đŸ™‹đŸ»â€â™€ïžnot just a great đŸ‘đŸ» local expert in sharing her knowledge about this village, she is also a great photographer 📾

Special thank you đŸ™đŸ» for the beautiful 😍 photos 📾 of SiennyLovesDrawing đŸ‘©đŸ» during this mangrove forest 🌳🌳 walkđŸš¶đŸ»â€â™€ïžya đŸ€—

Next, Khun Hansa đŸ™‹đŸ»â€â™€ïžÂ also brought her to a local cafe đŸœâ˜•ïžÂ (Hmm…In Thai name which SiennyLovesDrawing is unable to share the name, refer photo below for the cafe details) by her friend named Joy đŸ’đŸ»â€â™€ïž & her adorable shy daughter named Minnie đŸ‘§đŸ» It was a pleasure to meet them & had a quick chit chat about Joy đŸ’đŸ»â€â™€ïž’s recent visit to her orchard plantation đŸŒ±đŸŒż in Central of Thailand đŸ‡č🇭 , she plants đŸŒ±đŸŒż for macadomia nuts đŸ„œ , coffee trees â˜•ïžđŸŒł, pineapples 🍍 etc. Love 💗 all the photos đŸ“žđŸ“± shared by Joy đŸ’đŸ»â€â™€ïž, you will definitely note her passion in plantations đŸ’—đŸŒ±đŸŒż

IMG_0237.jpg

This cafe đŸœâ˜•ïž is located📍next to a river 💩💧, it’s really relaxing 😌 to dine đŸœ here to enjoy đŸ˜‹đŸ€€ the canal view. She đŸ‘©đŸ» had a Thai tea ice stick â˜•ïžđŸŠas well as try stir fried fresh vegetables đŸ„— planted by Joy đŸ’đŸ»â€â™€ïž with sardines 🐟, yummy delicious đŸ˜‹đŸ€€â€Œïž

IMG_0238.jpg

She đŸ‘©đŸ» has observed during the car 🚙 journey towards the salt farm that some of the farmers 👬👬👬 here busy hand picking cockles 🐚 in the farms 😄

Yeah‌ Next, she đŸ‘©đŸ» has proceeded to visit the salt farm 😃

Yes ✅, the highlight ✹of this tour & she đŸ‘©đŸ» has been long awaited for. Hmm….Why❓⁉

This is because she đŸ‘©đŸ» wanted to visit salt farm in Kampot village, Cambodia 🇰🇭 during her Phnom Penh trip in Nov. However, due to a last mins plan, no ❌ hotel available 🏱 as it was the annual water 💩💧 festival celebration 🎉🎊 , so SiennyLovesDrawing đŸ‘©đŸ» was forced to cancel ❌ the Kampot visit plan, hence no ❌ chance to have her 1ïžâƒŁst visit to a salt farm 😌😔

She has a late arrival 🛬 to Bangkok đŸ‡č🇭 & she needed to check-in for a connecting flight đŸ›« the next day to Nakhon Phanom province from the same airport ✈
