Pick 1๏ธโƒฃ ~ย Samut Sakhon from Bangkok: Salt Farm Tour & Homemade Seafood ~ย

Actually not just a wide variety of day tours, Take Me Tour also providing private car ๐Ÿš—๐Ÿš™ airport transfer โœˆ๏ธ, SiennyLovesDrawing ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿป has booked ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿปโ€๐Ÿ’ป๐Ÿ›’โœ… for a few & really impressed ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿคฉ with its reliable, safe & comfy ride ๐Ÿš—๐Ÿš™ to/ from Don Mueangย International Airport โœˆ๏ธ

Do consider for your convenience especially with night ๐ŸŒƒ๐ŸŒŒ๐Ÿ›ฌ arrival ya

Before she ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿป has decided on this tour, she ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿป has read ๐Ÿ“– about the local expert of this said tour named Khun Hansa ๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธย who has introduced herself as a wanderer in this small village & then become a close friend to many villagers ๐Ÿ‘ซ๐Ÿ‘ญ๐Ÿ‘ฌ

TH4.JPG

During the tour, SiennyLovesDrawing ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿป has observed that Khun Hansa ๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธย really having a great ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป relationship with the villagers ๐Ÿ‘ญ๐Ÿ‘ฌ๐Ÿ‘ซ & communicating well ๐Ÿ—ฃ๐Ÿ‘ฅ๐Ÿ‘ค๐Ÿ‘ฅ with them. Definitely a strong healthy bonding ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿค & friendship being built, bravo ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป to her ๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธโ€ผ๏ธ

She ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿป also truly believes that Khun Hansa ๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธhas chosen โœ… to lead this day tour to introduce to all guests ๐Ÿ‘ฌ๐Ÿ‘ญ๐Ÿ‘ซ about this small village in a less travelledย  province ~ Samut Sakhon, Thailand ๐Ÿ‡น๐Ÿ‡ญ i.e. from the salt water ๐Ÿ’ฆ๐Ÿ’ง gate, mangrove forest ๐ŸŒณ๐ŸŒณ , salt farm, home made seafoods ๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿด๐Ÿฆ€๐Ÿฆ๐ŸŸ etc.

Khun Hansa ๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธย also aims to help to boost โฌ†๏ธ the economy of this small village & increase โฌ†๏ธ the earning power ๐Ÿ’ฐ of the villagers ๐Ÿ‘ญ๐Ÿ‘ซ๐Ÿ‘ฌ here especially during the raining โ˜”๏ธ๐ŸŒง season where most of the salt farmers here will be experiencing the low โฌ‡๏ธ salt harvesting

Hmm…How’s this day tour thoughoutโ“โ‰๏ธ

She ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿป woke up early that morning ๐Ÿ”…๐Ÿ”† & went for a local Thai “bak kut teh” breakfast ๐Ÿ˜‹๐Ÿคค , a non-halal dish ~ herb pork ๐Ÿ–๐Ÿท๐Ÿฝ soup ๐Ÿฒ๐Ÿฅฃ served with riceย ๐Ÿ›๐Ÿ˜‹๐Ÿคค It’s just a stall outside of a local Thai ๐Ÿ‡น๐Ÿ‡ญ๐Ÿ‘ซ‘s home ๐Ÿ ๐Ÿก & within walking ๐Ÿšถ๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ distance fromย her hotelย ๐Ÿขย namedย Bangkok Loft Innย 

This hotel ๐Ÿข is located at๐Ÿ“55 Somdet Phra Chao Taksin Rd., Bangyeerua, Thonburi, Bangkok 10600, Thailand ๐Ÿ‡น๐Ÿ‡ญ A nice ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป comfy stay ๐Ÿ›Œ๐Ÿšฟ๐Ÿšฝwith its strategic location๐Ÿ“ i.e. 5๏ธโƒฃmins walking ๐Ÿšถ๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ distance to the Wongwian Yai BTS skytrain station ๐Ÿš‰, very convenient ๐Ÿ†—๐Ÿ†’ More details for your hotel booking ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿปโ€๐Ÿ’ป๐Ÿ‘จ๐Ÿปโ€๐Ÿ’ป๐Ÿ›’ via ๐ŸŒ http://www.bangkokloftinn.com/ย 

After breakfast ๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿด๐Ÿ˜‹๐Ÿคค, she ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿป then proceeded ๐Ÿšถ๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธto take the BTS skytrain ๐ŸšŠ from Wongwian Yai station ๐Ÿš‰ย Oppsss…Too early arrival ๐Ÿ”…๐Ÿ”† atย BTS stationย named Wutthakat ๐Ÿš‰, not because of the time difference ya…

Yesโœ…, she was about 1๏ธโƒฃ hour early from meet up @ 9๏ธโƒฃam to meet up with Khun Hansaย ๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธย as stated in her Take Me Tour booking ๐Ÿ“Œ Just too excited ๐Ÿ˜† for the day tour, Ha…Ha…Don’t laugh ๐Ÿ˜†๐Ÿ˜‚ at her ya

Yeahโ€ผ๏ธ A very niceย ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿปย morningย ๐Ÿ”…๐Ÿ”†ย view with riverย ๐Ÿ’ฆ๐Ÿ’ง, long boatย ๐Ÿ›ถย & watย โ›ฉย from the BTS stationย ๐Ÿš‡ย during her wait for the meet up ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿป๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ

Hmm…She ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿป was a bit lazy, else she would have walk๐Ÿšถ๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธto visit this wat ย โ›ฉย nearby that morning ๐Ÿ”…๐Ÿ”† Instead she ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿป seated down in the BTS station ๐Ÿš‰ & then logged in to her social medias ๐Ÿ“ฑ & catching up with her friends & family members ๐Ÿ‘ซ๐Ÿ‘ญ๐Ÿ‘ฌย with her new ๐Ÿ†• ย Thai simcard named DTAC , more details via ๐ŸŒย https://www.dtac.co.th/en/move-to-dtac/

Khun Hansa ๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธย was early to arrive too, so both ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿป๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ then started this day tour slightly early that the scheduled time of 9๏ธโƒฃam

Khun Hansa ๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธย is so friendly & shares the same travel passion as SiennyLovesDrawing ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿป, hence lots of common interest to chit chat ๐Ÿ—ฃ๐Ÿ‘ค about during their approximately 30mins journey ๐Ÿš™ to Samut Sakhon province, also known by the locals as “Maha Chai” ๐Ÿ˜€

Both happily ๐Ÿ˜ƒ exchanged lots of respective travel stories, always a nice ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป meet & catch up with a travel lover during travel journeys ๐Ÿ˜

As you have reading ๐Ÿ“– her earlier blogging ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿปโ€๐Ÿ’ป๐Ÿ“ here, she ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿป has visited plenty of mangrove parks ๐ŸŒณ๐ŸŒณ in her home country ~ Malaysia ๐Ÿ‡ฒ๐Ÿ‡พ

However, this is SiennyLovesDrawing ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿป‘s 1๏ธโƒฃst visit to a Thailand ๐Ÿ‡น๐Ÿ‡ญ‘s natural coastal mangrove forest ๐ŸŒณ๐ŸŒณ,ย a home to a wide variety of birds ๐Ÿฆ…๐Ÿฆ & mudskippers ๐ŸŸ๐ŸŸ & along the Gulf of Thailand ๐ŸŒŠ๐Ÿ‡น๐Ÿ‡ญ

Oppsss…The mudskippers ๐ŸŸ๐ŸŸ here are fat & huge, it was high tides ๐ŸŒŠ during her visit, so not able โŒ to note the colourful Hermit crabs ๐Ÿš๐Ÿฆ€crawling on the muddy field ๐Ÿ˜Œโ˜บ๏ธ

Not to missed a visit to its mini museum / perhaps more to a conservation project centre ๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿ’š with a collection of whale ๐Ÿ‹๐Ÿณ skeletons, details about some small animals lived in this forest ๐ŸŒณ๐ŸŒณ before as well asย some its on-going marine conservation initiatives ๐ŸŒŠ๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿ’š here i.e. mangrove trees planting ๐ŸŒณ๐ŸŒณ, a bamboo ๐ŸŽ๐ŸŽ‹ border project to avoid further water ๐Ÿ’ฆ๐Ÿ’ง & soil erosion to this forest ๐ŸŒณ๐ŸŒณ etc.

These eco ๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿ’š sustainable initiatives aim to buidling the bamboo borders ๐ŸŽ๐ŸŽ‹ within the mangrove forest ๐ŸŒณ๐ŸŒณ were observed by SiennyLovesDrawing ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿป during her visit to protect the mangroves ๐ŸŒณ being sapling from the sea waves ๐ŸŒŠ ‘ destruction, then soil erosion ๐Ÿ˜ง๐Ÿ˜ฒ๐Ÿ™ƒ

Khun Hansa ๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธย also into eco tourism ๐Ÿ’š & a green person as SiennyLovesDrawing ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿป,ย so they have more conversational topics ๐Ÿ—ฃ๐Ÿ‘ค Ha…Ha…it’s rare to meet a new friend ๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ with similar travel & conservation passionate ๐Ÿ˜‰

She ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿป has shared a recent sad ๐Ÿ˜” news ๐Ÿ—ž๐Ÿ“ฐ of the high โฌ†๏ธ potential of the de-gazette โŒ of Pulau Kukup Johor National Park ๐ŸŒดย to Khun Hansa ๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ during this day tour, you may check out this said dissappointingย ๐Ÿ˜”ย online newsย ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿปโ€๐Ÿ’ป๐Ÿ‘จ๐Ÿปโ€๐Ÿ’ป๐Ÿ—ž๐Ÿ“ฐย viaย ๐ŸŒhttps://www.thestar.com.my/news/nation/2018/12/05/why-did-johor-quietly-degazette-pulau-kukup-national-park-asks-lawyers/

Next, Khun Hansa ๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธย also brought her to a local cafe ๐Ÿฝโ˜•๏ธย (Hmm…In Thai name which SiennyLovesDrawing is unable to share the name, refer photo below for the cafe details) by her friend named Joy ๐Ÿ’๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ & her adorable shy daughter named Minnie ๐Ÿ‘ง๐Ÿป It was a pleasure to meet them & had a quick chit chat about Joy ๐Ÿ’๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ’s recent visit to her orchard plantation ๐ŸŒฑ๐ŸŒฟ in Central of Thailand ๐Ÿ‡น๐Ÿ‡ญ , she plants ๐ŸŒฑ๐ŸŒฟ for macadomia nuts ๐Ÿฅœ , coffee trees โ˜•๏ธ๐ŸŒณ, pineapples ๐Ÿ etc. Love ๐Ÿ’— all the photos ๐Ÿ“ธ๐Ÿ“ฑ shared by Joy ๐Ÿ’๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ, you will definitely note her passion in plantations ๐Ÿ’—๐ŸŒฑ๐ŸŒฟ

She ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿป has observed during the car ๐Ÿš™ journey towards the salt farm that some of the farmers ๐Ÿ‘ฌ๐Ÿ‘ฌ๐Ÿ‘ฌ here busy hand picking cockles ๐Ÿš in the farms ๐Ÿ˜„

Yeahโ€ผ๏ธ Next, she ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿป has proceeded to visit the salt farm ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Yes โœ…, the highlight โœจof this tour & she ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿป has been long awaited for. Hmm….Whyโ“โ‰๏ธ

This is because she ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿป wanted to visit salt farm in Kampot village, Cambodia ๐Ÿ‡ฐ๐Ÿ‡ญ during her Phnom Penh trip in Nov. However, due to a last mins plan, no โŒ hotel available ๐Ÿข as it was the annual water ๐Ÿ’ฆ๐Ÿ’ง festival celebration ๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽŠ , so SiennyLovesDrawing ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿป was forced to cancel โŒ the Kampot visit plan, hence no โŒ chance to have her 1๏ธโƒฃst visit to a salt farm ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ˜”

Everything happens for a reason, then this Take Me Tour booking ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿปโ€๐Ÿ’ป๐Ÿ›’โœ… has now fulfilled ๐Ÿ†’๐Ÿ†— her wish to visit a salt farm, so happy ๐Ÿ˜ƒโ€ผ๏ธ

Salt farming is seasonal & visiting during the dry season between January to April would capture the best view ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ˜

Sea water ๐Ÿ’ฆ๐Ÿ’ง is 1๏ธโƒฃst being pumping into the farms.ย  Then, the sea water ๐Ÿ’ฆ๐Ÿ’งwill be evaporated over a period of time, the layers of salt will be manually collected by the salt farmers ๐Ÿ‘ซ๐Ÿ‘ญ๐Ÿ‘ฌ

She ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿป has met with the salt farmers ๐Ÿ‘ฌ๐Ÿ‘ญ๐Ÿ‘ซ’ family, learnt & discovered how the salt formed & also enjoy a home cooked lunch ๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿดwith the top ๐Ÿ‘†๐Ÿปnotch salt & fresh seafood ๐Ÿฆ€๐Ÿฆ๐ŸŸ served from the salt farm to table ๐Ÿ˜‹๐Ÿคค

SiennyLovesDrawing ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿป donโ€™t really wear a wrist watch โŒš๏ธ on a daily basis, more to according to her mood ๐Ÿ˜„๐Ÿ˜†

Ohh yaโ€ฆWhenever she ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿป travels overseas ๐Ÿ›ซ, she ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿป will wear a wrist watchโŒš๏ธ to ensure she is with the correct โœ… time zone ๐Ÿ•› change

She is a right-handed โžก๏ธ & also wear her wrist watch right-handed too โžก๏ธ๐Ÿ˜Š

Hmmโ€ฆSince young ๐Ÿ‘ง๐Ÿป, she ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿป loves โค๏ธ to collect watches โŒš๏ธโŒš๏ธ, of course for the unique ๐Ÿคฉ style/ design & not too expensive. Definitely she ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿป is not โŒ 1 of the fancy branded shopping ๐Ÿ›’๐Ÿ› queens ๐Ÿ‘ธ๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘ธ๐Ÿป

She ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿป also supporting for a charity campaign & a meaningful cause ๐Ÿ˜Š

A watch โŒš๏ธ to her not just about timing ๐Ÿ•›, more as a fashion accessories to match with her #OOTD ๐Ÿ‘š๐Ÿ‘–๐Ÿ‘—๐Ÿ‘˜

Haโ€ฆHaโ€ฆDo check out ๐Ÿ“– this article ๐Ÿ“ via ๐ŸŒ https://tawaf.online/media/how-to-wear-big-face-watches-for-women-with-style/, she ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿป do agree โœ… with some of the fashion tips ๐Ÿ“Œ๐Ÿ“Œ shared & hope you find this useful to your fashion style too ๐Ÿ˜€

SiennyLovesDrawing ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿป was recently being recommended ๐Ÿ‘‰๐Ÿป by a Muslim friend ๐Ÿ’๐Ÿฝโ€โ™€๏ธ with the Petite collection of a brand name ~ Tawaf timepiecesโŒš๏ธ

Tawaf means to go around ๐Ÿ”„ A perfect match with how a clock ๐Ÿ•ฐ works, with the earth ๐ŸŒ & time ๐Ÿ•› They all go around ๐Ÿ”„, hence Tawaf Timepieces โŒš๏ธ

Once said the timepieces โŒš๏ธโŒš๏ธ of this brand name are simple yet stylish. It comes in a variety of colours & styles to suit your casual everyday watch โŒš๏ธ to something you can wear for dinner ๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿด functions / even to a gala ๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿป๐Ÿคต๐Ÿปโ€ผ๏ธ

Out of curiosity ๐Ÿค” of how the Tawaf timepieces โŒš๏ธโŒš๏ธ looks like, she has ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿป checked out its website ๐ŸŒ for the females ๐Ÿ‘ญ๐Ÿ‘ญโŒš๏ธโŒš๏ธ selections, ๐ŸŒ https://tawaf.online/shop/watches/women-watches/

All Tawaf watches โŒš๏ธโŒš๏ธย are clockwise โ†ฉ๏ธ & anti-clockwise โ†ช๏ธย as well as having the options for its customers ๐Ÿ‘ซ๐Ÿ‘ญ๐Ÿ‘ฌย of either a silver / gold casing which is made of mineral glass. Not only that, Tawaf watches โŒš๏ธโŒš๏ธ are anti-scratch, water ๐Ÿ’ฆ๐Ÿ’ง -resistant up to 3๏ธโƒฃATM & with 2๏ธโƒฃ yearsโ€™ warranty, wowโ€ผ๏ธ

After browsing ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿปโ€๐Ÿ’ป๐ŸŒ๐Ÿ›’ through, personally she ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿป prefers the Classic Collection instead, though itโ€™s with a bigger watch โŒš๏ธ face to fit in โœ… the Arabic numeric ๐Ÿ”ข

โ€” Products shown: Ramal, Safa, Zamzam, Mina, Women's collection: Marwa and Arafah.

Posted by Tawaf Timepieces on Saturday, June 30, 2018

 

This collection can be worn by both males ๐Ÿ‘ฌ & females ๐Ÿ‘ญ๐Ÿ‘ญ, while Petite collection as recommended by her Muslim friend ๐Ÿ’๐Ÿฝโ€โ™€๏ธ with minimalist design (Without Arabic numeric โŒ๐Ÿ”ข & suitable for non-Muslim) & specially for females only ๐Ÿ‘ญ๐Ÿ‘ญ

1๏ธโƒฃ of the many features of this watch โŒš๏ธ is you can opt to change any straps to suit your occasions/ OOTD ๐Ÿ‘š๐Ÿ‘•๐Ÿ‘”๐Ÿ‘—๐Ÿ‘–๐Ÿ‘˜ , straps can be purchased ๐Ÿ›’ separately or to add to your order ๐Ÿ“Œ via ๐ŸŒ https://tawaf.online/shop/accessories/straps/

Itโ€™s a clockwise โ†ฉ๏ธ & anticlockwise โ†ช๏ธ Japanese ๐Ÿ‡ฏ๐Ÿ‡ต Quartz movement, a contemporary piece for everyday style ๐Ÿ˜

Guess whatโ“โ‰๏ธ

SiennyLovesDrawing ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿป was having a hard time ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ˜… to deciding which model โ“โŒš๏ธโŒš๏ธโ‰๏ธ to choose โœ… for the Classic Collection, the strap colours in particular ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜œ

She ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿป already opted โœ… for both silver โšช๏ธ Arabic numeric ๐Ÿ”ข & watchโŒš๏ธcase

At the end, she ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿป decides her choice by referring to the name of each model ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

IMG_0044.JPG

Finally, she ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿป picks โœ… for Safa, it means in Arabic for purity, clarity, serenity, lucidity, fineness & fairness. Yeahโ€ผ๏ธ๐Ÿ˜

Hmmm…You may wonder why she ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿป is not โŒ a Muslim & still get a watch โŒš๏ธ from this collectionโ“โ‰๏ธ

Arabic no.png

Simple reason, she ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿป loves ๐Ÿ’— to have the Arabic numeric ๐Ÿ”ข watch โŒš๏ธ face to add โž• to her unique watch โŒš๏ธโŒš๏ธ collection. She ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿป still recalled ๐Ÿ’ญ during her Myanmar ๐Ÿ‡ฒ๐Ÿ‡ฒ trip ๐Ÿ›ซ๐ŸŽ’๐Ÿงข๐Ÿ‘Ÿ๐Ÿ•ถ many years ago, she was ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿป looking around to find a watch โŒš๏ธ with Myanmar numeric ๐Ÿ‡ฒ๐Ÿ‡ฒ๐Ÿ”ข, however she fails โŒ in getting1๏ธโƒฃ

So, this Arabic numeric watch โŒš๏ธ seems to fulfil her dream ๐Ÿ’ญ comes true โœ… to have a unique numeric wristwatch โŒš๏ธ Hurrayโ€ผ๏ธ๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ˜†

Do check out her IG storyย cum highlight & Twitter for her ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿป happy ๐Ÿ˜ƒ received Tawaf parcel ๐ŸŽ & unboxing it on Xmas eve 2018 ~ Merry Christmas ๐ŸŽ„๐ŸŽ…๐Ÿปโ˜ƒ๏ธ 2018 & Happy New ๐Ÿ†• Year 2019 ๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽŠ

If you don’t watch โŒš๏ธ carefully what you do with your time ๐Ÿ•› it will slip away ๐Ÿ’จ๐ŸŒฌ from you ~ Drew Sirtors

In life, timing is everything, donโ€™t you agreeโ“โ‰๏ธ

If you know SiennyLovesDrawing ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿป personally, you will know she is a punctual ๐Ÿ•›โœ… person, she respects time of everyone ๐Ÿ‘ซ๐Ÿ‘ญ๐Ÿ‘ฌ & wish to receive the same respect too. She rarely late, most of the time you will find her earlier that the meet up time โ˜บ๏ธ

Impressive Bon Om Touk ~ Cambodian Water Festival 2018

Yeahโ€ผ๏ธ SiennyLovesDrawingย ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿปย is gonna sharing ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿปโ€๐Ÿ’ป๐Ÿ“ here about her impressive ๐Ÿคฉ & unforgettable experience gained from the annualย Cambodianย ๐Ÿ‡ฐ๐Ÿ‡ญ Water ๐Ÿ’ฆ๐Ÿ’ง Festival ๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽŠ, Phnom Penh, Cambodia ๐Ÿ‡ฐ๐Ÿ‡ญ

So, it was all started withย a short queue to get her ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿป cheap โฌ‡๏ธ flight ticket โœˆ๏ธ during the AirAsia BIG Xchange & BIG Fest event โค๏ธ in Sept (as shown in the short clip ๐Ÿ“น๐ŸŽฅbelow). It was with only a limited choice of destinations๐Ÿ“๐Ÿ“available

She ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿป has chosen โœ… for Phnom Penhย ๐Ÿ‡ฐ๐Ÿ‡ญ under Lane B with a very 1๏ธโƒฃst intention to meet & visit 1๏ธโƒฃ of her girlfriend ๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ who is working there as an expatriate currently. However, sadly ๐Ÿ˜Ÿ that her friend ๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ wasn’t around โŒ Phnom Penh ๐Ÿ‡ฐ๐Ÿ‡ญ during her travel dates ๐Ÿ—“ Sigh…From a friend visit๐Ÿ‘ญ, then she had it as 1๏ธโƒฃ of her annual solo travelsss ๐ŸŽ’๐Ÿงข๐Ÿ•ถ๐Ÿ‘Ÿ

๐Ÿ’— ~ Everything Happens For A Reason ~ ๐Ÿ’—

Also initially she ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿป did plan to let go this solo trip because of a clash to a tourism event ~ MITA Sarawak, Malaysia ๐Ÿ‡ฒ๐Ÿ‡พ that she ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿป has always supporting ๐Ÿ’ช๐ŸปโœŒ๐Ÿปthe tourism authority ๐Ÿ˜Š in Malaysia ๐Ÿ‡ฒ๐Ÿ‡พ๏ธ

Guess whatโ“โ‰๏ธ

Her trip is gonna be during the annualย Cambodian ๐Ÿ‡ฐ๐Ÿ‡ญ Water ๐Ÿ’ฆ๐Ÿ’ง Festival ๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽŠย named Bon Om Toukย in local Khmer language ๐Ÿ‡ฐ๐Ÿ‡ญ from 21 Nov to 23 Nov 2018 ๐Ÿ˜ƒ๐Ÿ˜ It also known as The Pirogue ๐Ÿšฃ๐Ÿปโ€โ™‚๏ธ๐Ÿšฃ๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ Racing Festival ๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽŠย or Water ๐Ÿ’ฆ๐Ÿ’ง & Moon ๐ŸŒ‘ Festival ๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽŠ & Boat Racing ๐Ÿšฃ๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿšฃ๐Ÿปโ€โ™‚๏ธ

http://cambodia-tourism.org/plan-your-trip/events/cambodian-water-festival/

It was really a coincidentโ€ผ๏ธ Once she ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿปย has decided โœ… to stay with this solo travel ๐ŸŽ’๐Ÿ•ถ๐Ÿงข๐Ÿ‘Ÿ due to the complicated & difficult flight change ๐Ÿ˜Ÿโœˆ๏ธย Also this gonna be her 1๏ธโƒฃst visit to Phnom Penh, Cambodiaย ๐Ÿ‡ฐ๐Ÿ‡ญ

This biggest celebrationย marks a 12th century naval victory with boat ๐Ÿšฃ๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿšฃ๐Ÿปโ€โ™‚๏ธ racing along the Sisowath Quay ๐Ÿ’ฆ๐Ÿ’ง with the boat ๐Ÿšฃ๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿšฃ๐Ÿปโ€โ™‚๏ธ racing on the Tonle Sap River, in particular the area stretching from street 104 to street 178 of Phnom Penh city centre ๐Ÿ‡ฐ๐Ÿ‡ญ

Many hostels ๐Ÿก๐Ÿ˜, hotels ๐Ÿข, restaurants ๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿด & bars ๐Ÿฅ‚๐Ÿป๐Ÿธaround this area ~ Very convenience for all visitors ๐Ÿ‘ซ๐Ÿ‘ญ๐Ÿ‘ฌ

In the morning ๐Ÿ”…๐Ÿ”† & before the race ๐Ÿšฃ๐Ÿปโ€โ™‚๏ธ๐Ÿšฃ๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ starts during this 3๏ธโƒฃ-day festival ๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽ€, the riverside & streets were much more peaceful ๐Ÿ˜Œ

Once the race starts around ๐Ÿ”Ÿam, the huge crowd ๐Ÿ‘ญ๐Ÿ‘ฌ๐Ÿ‘ซ at the riverside will be observed ๐Ÿ˜ƒ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป

However, in 2015 this celebration ๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽŠ was cancelled โŒ due to the low โฌ‡๏ธ water level ๐Ÿ’ฆ๐Ÿ’ง

Hurrayโ€ผ๏ธย She ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿป always wanna appreciating & experiencing a country’s tradition culture during her travels โœˆ๏ธ๐ŸŽ’๐Ÿ•ถ๐Ÿงข๐Ÿ‘Ÿย This is just so a lovely ๐Ÿ’“ coincidenceย ๐Ÿ˜‰

So, what’s this water ๐Ÿ’ฆ๐Ÿ’ง festival ๐ŸŽŠ๐ŸŽ‰ all aboutโ“โ‰๏ธ

It’s a 3๏ธโƒฃ days non-religious celebration ๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽŠ & symbolised as an ancient appreciation ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป for centuries to the river ๐Ÿ’ฆ๐Ÿ’งfor providing a source of livelihood to the farmers ๐Ÿ‘จ๐Ÿปโ€๐ŸŒพ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿปโ€๐ŸŒพ & fishermen ๐ŸŸ๐ŸŽฃ

Hmm…It’s a kind of local Khmers ๐Ÿ‡ฐ๐Ÿ‡ญ๐Ÿ‘ซ๐Ÿ‘ญ๐Ÿ‘ฌ thanksgiving ๐Ÿ™ celebration ๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽŠ

The Cambodian boat crews ๐Ÿ‡ฐ๐Ÿ‡ญ๐Ÿšฃ๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿšฃ๐Ÿปโ€โ™‚๏ธ were face forward. Many of the boat crews ๐Ÿšฃ๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿšฃ๐Ÿปโ€โ™‚๏ธ were complemented with a colorfully-costumed lady ๐Ÿ’๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธat the prow dancing to the beat of the drums ๐Ÿฅ๐Ÿฅ

However, from her observation, majority of the boats now don’t really practising this tradition though. Hmm…From her 2๏ธโƒฃ days visits to the festival, she only noticed for 2๏ธโƒฃย boats with a colorfully-costumed lady ๐Ÿ’๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ at the front of the boat ๐Ÿšฃ๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿšฃ๐Ÿปโ€โ™‚๏ธ

For the 1๏ธโƒฃst 2๏ธโƒฃ days, races ๐Ÿšฃ๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿšฃ๐Ÿปโ€โ™‚๏ธ are run with 2๏ธโƒฃ boats ๐Ÿ›ถ๐Ÿ›ถ each, with the big race ๐Ÿšฃ๐Ÿปโ€โ™‚๏ธ๐Ÿšฃ๐Ÿปโ€โ™‚๏ธ happening on the last day, when all the boats ๐Ÿ›ถ๐Ÿ›ถ take to the river ๐Ÿ’ฆ๐Ÿ’ง to compete ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

There were carnival, rides, traditional music ๐ŸŽผ๐ŸŽถ๐ŸŽต performances, dances ๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿป๐Ÿ•บ๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ‘ฏโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿ‘ฏโ€โ™‚๏ธ๐Ÿ•ด๐Ÿปetc. in the evening ๐Ÿ™๐ŸŒƒ๐ŸŒŒ

There were many stall vendors, definitely food ๐Ÿ›๐Ÿฒ๐Ÿฅ˜๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿด& drink ๐Ÿฅค๐Ÿป๐Ÿท๐Ÿฅ‚๐Ÿธ๐Ÿนoverflow on the streets, Khmer pop bands ๐ŸŽผ๐ŸŽน๐ŸŽง๐ŸŽถ๐ŸŽตentertaining the crowds ๐Ÿ‘ญ๐Ÿ‘ฌ๐Ÿ‘ซ etc.

Personally, she ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿป was impressed how the local vendors actually earn their living ๐Ÿ’ฐby selling drinks ๐Ÿฅค& snacks ๐Ÿฅก๐Ÿฐ๐Ÿฅง๐Ÿฅช to the huge crowds ๐Ÿ‘ญ๐Ÿ‘ฌ๐Ÿ‘ซ at the riverside during the boat racing ๐Ÿšฃ๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿšฃ๐Ÿปโ€โ™‚๏ธ

There were approximately 300 boats ๐Ÿ›ถ๐Ÿ›ถ with 19k pax of boat rowers ๐Ÿšฃ๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿšฃ๐Ÿปโ€โ™‚๏ธ Wow!!

Hmm…๐Ÿค” How about the huge crowd ๐Ÿ‘ญ๐Ÿ‘ซ๐Ÿ‘ฌattended for this 3๏ธโƒฃ-day festival celebration ๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽŠ in Phnom Penhโ“โ‰๏ธ

IMG_4571.JPG

It was about 4.5million people ๐Ÿ‘ญ๐Ÿ‘ฌ๐Ÿ‘ซ including expatriates, foreign visitors, local Khmers from all provinces etc. as shared at the closing ceremony ๐Ÿ˜

Ohh yeahโ€ผ๏ธ This year, 2018 i.e. The 3rd great successfull year with Cambodia ๐Ÿ‡ฐ๐Ÿ‡ญ has handbuilt the world ๐ŸŒ๐Ÿ—บ ‘s longest rowing boat ๐Ÿšฃ๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ at 87.3m long & 1.99m wide with cost of $60k. It was completed successfully ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป in Sept by more than 14k local Khmers ๐Ÿ‡ฐ๐Ÿ‡ญ๐Ÿ‘ญ๐Ÿ‘ฌ๐Ÿ‘ซ in 192 days ๐Ÿ˜ฒ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Guess whatโ“โ‰๏ธ

Another Guinness World ๐ŸŒ๐Ÿ—บ Record ๐Ÿ† won (It’s the 5๏ธโƒฃth one) by Cambodia ๐Ÿ‡ฐ๐Ÿ‡ญ as this long dragon boat ๐Ÿšฃ๐Ÿปโ€โ™‚๏ธ is capable of carrying 179 boat rowers ๐Ÿšฃ๐Ÿปโ€โ™‚๏ธ๐Ÿšฃ๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ on itโ€ผ๏ธ Wowโ€ผ๏ธ๐Ÿ˜ฒ This great ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป news was anounced on 12 Nov at Prey Veng province of Phnom Penh ๐Ÿ‡ฐ๐Ÿ‡ญ

From her own experience, a few points ๐Ÿ“Œ๐Ÿ“Œ to note if you’re interested to be at Phnom Penh or Siem Reap for this great ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป annual celebration ๐ŸŽŠ๐ŸŽ‰

Ohh ya…A pair of comfy shoes ๐Ÿ‘Ÿ is essentials โœ…ย because itย was vehicles free ๐Ÿ†“ย i.e. No public transport โŒ๐ŸšŒ๐Ÿš•๐Ÿš— ๐Ÿš being available to theย festival ๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽŠ ground๐Ÿ“, more details via ๐ŸŒ https://www.khmertimeskh.com/50551697/city-hall-issues-vehicle-ban-for-water-festival/

In this connection, the only option would be just getting around by your own foot ๐Ÿ‘ฃ

Yeahโ€ผ๏ธ SiennyLovesDrawing ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿป got her sun โ˜€๏ธ๐ŸŒž protection from theย ๐Ÿ†•ย Petal Velvet Sunawayย SPF50 ordered & purchased ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿปโ€๐Ÿ’ป๐Ÿ›’ fromย Althea Koreaย ๐Ÿ‡ฐ๐Ÿ‡ท You must remember to put up your sunscreen to avoid sunburn

Next, do bring an umbrella ๐ŸŒ‚โ˜‚ (You may loan it from your hotel, it can be a weapon if needed)/ wear a cap ๐Ÿงข

Do dress up in a light modest clothing ๐Ÿ‘š to enjoy the boat ๐Ÿšฃ๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿšฃ๐Ÿปโ€โ™‚๏ธ race cheerings with the local Khmers ๐Ÿ‡ฐ๐Ÿ‡ญ๐Ÿ‘ญ๐Ÿ‘ฌ๐Ÿ‘ซ at the riverside under the hot sunny ๐Ÿ˜Žโ˜€๏ธ day

Ohh ya…Do remember your refillable water ๐Ÿ’ฆ๐Ÿ’ง bottle to avoid dehydration ya ๐Ÿ˜Œ

She ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿป was with the local Khmers ๐Ÿ‡ฐ๐Ÿ‡ญ๐Ÿ‘ซ๐Ÿ‘ญ๐Ÿ‘ฌ on her 1๏ธโƒฃst visit & then 2๏ธโƒฃnd visit the next day at the designated area by Tourism Cambodia ๐Ÿ‡ฐ๐Ÿ‡ญ for the foreign tourists ๐Ÿ‘ฌ๐Ÿ‘ซ๐Ÿ‘ญย (Served with free ๐Ÿ†“ flow of drinks๐Ÿฅค๐Ÿฅคavailable)

The riversides ๐Ÿ’ฆ๐Ÿ’ง were extremely packed & crowded ๐Ÿ‘ฌ๐Ÿ‘ซ๐Ÿ‘ญ with both the local Khmers ๐Ÿ‡ฐ๐Ÿ‡ญ๐Ÿ‘ซ๐Ÿ‘ญ๐Ÿ‘ฌ & foreign tourists to cheering for their favorite โค๏ธ boats๐Ÿšฃ๐Ÿปโ€โ™‚๏ธ๐Ÿšฃ๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธduring the races, so suggest you to bring only the bare necessities & hold on tight to what you have. Also being alert with your surroundings too while in the huge crowd ๐Ÿ‘ญ๐Ÿ‘ฌ๐Ÿ‘ซ

Whyโ“โ‰๏ธ

Hmm…You never know whether you will be being targetted by any pick-pockets/ bag-snatchers ๐Ÿ˜ˆ๐Ÿ‘ฟ whom may just roaming around the crowded festival ๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽŠ riversides ๐Ÿ’ฆ๐Ÿ’ง& streets. So, even thoughย this festival ๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽŠ is a free ๐Ÿ†“ celebration ๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽŠ , however it can get really expensive if you make a mistake by carrying valuables into the crowds ๐Ÿ‘ญ๐Ÿ‘ฌ๐Ÿ‘ซ

Always better be safe then sorry ya โ˜บ๏ธ๐Ÿ˜‰

There were several types of rowing ๐Ÿšฃ๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿšฃ๐Ÿปโ€โ™‚๏ธ styles observed from her visits, i.e. sitting down & manual rowing, standing up & manual rowing, standing up & auto rowing etc. She ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿป is curious ๐Ÿค” how the marks will be allocate within each different styles as well as the determining factors of winning ๐Ÿ†๐ŸŽ– tooโ“โ‰๏ธ

Perhaps logically the shortest time ๐Ÿ•› of completion from the start till end time of each boat at the finishing line (The 2๏ธโƒฃ red โค๏ธ boats ๐Ÿšฃ๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿšฃ๐Ÿปโ€โ™‚๏ธ as captured in the photo ๐Ÿ“ธ & vBlog ๐Ÿ“น๐ŸŽฅbelow)

There were live announcement during the boat racing ๐Ÿšฃ๐Ÿปโ€โ™‚๏ธ๐Ÿšฃ๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ, however in local Khmer ๐Ÿ‡ฐ๐Ÿ‡ญ language & โŒ no English translation. It would be good to have a live English announcement in the next year festival onwards ya ๐Ÿ˜Š

The King Norodom Sihamoni ๐Ÿคด๐Ÿป, Prime Minister Hun Sen ๐Ÿ‘จ๐Ÿปโ€๐Ÿ’ผ& some senior officials ๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿปโ€โ™‚๏ธ๐Ÿ’๐Ÿปโ€โ™‚๏ธ have all attended the closing ceremony on the last day of this festival ๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽŠ She ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿป has observed from the TV screen ๐Ÿ“บ at the foreign visitors designated booth

Ohh ya…She ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿป has enjoyed the longest & the pretty ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿคฉ fireworks ๐ŸŽ†๐ŸŽ‡ so far from the closing ceremony of this water festival ๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽŠ

National Park Pahang, Malaysia ๐Ÿ‡ฒ๐Ÿ‡พ

Yeahโ€ผ๏ธย SiennyLovesDrawingย ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿปย has recently travelled to Taman Negaraย ๐ŸŒณ๐ŸŒณย (aka National Parkย ๐ŸŒณ๐ŸŒณย ) Pahang, Malaysia ๐Ÿ‡ฒ๐Ÿ‡พ with MITA business networking trip & enjoyed her back to nature ๐Ÿ’šย stay ๐Ÿ›Œ๐Ÿšฟ๐Ÿšฝ๐Ÿ˜ด๐Ÿ’ค at Han Rainforest Resort ๐Ÿก๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿก

She ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿป had a privilege to meet & enjoyed an inspiring chat ๐Ÿ—ฃ๐Ÿ‘ค with the founder of the resort๐Ÿก๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿก, Mr Kenny Ng ๐Ÿ‘จ๐Ÿปโ€๐Ÿ’ผ(Uncle Kenny) about his nature ๐Ÿ’šย ๐Ÿ’šย passion & resort busines journey

Oppsss…SiennyLovesDrawing ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿป has forgot ๐Ÿคฆ๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ to have a photo ๐Ÿ“ธ with Uncle Kennyย ๐Ÿ‘จ๐Ÿปโ€๐Ÿ’ผย during this trip

He ๐Ÿ‘จ๐Ÿปโ€๐Ÿ’ผ has generously shared an article โœ๐Ÿป๐Ÿ“œwrote by him & SiennyLovesDrawing ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿป would like to share ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿปโ€๐Ÿ’ป๐Ÿ“ it here, inclusion of her favourite โค๏ธ emojisss & capturesss ๐Ÿ“ธ in between ๐Ÿ˜ƒ๐Ÿ˜

๐Ÿค—ย ~ Sharing is caring as always ~~ ๐Ÿค—

Taman Negara๐ŸŒณ๐ŸŒณ, situated in the heart โค๏ธof Pahang, Malaysia ๐Ÿ‡ฒ๐Ÿ‡พ , is 1๏ธโƒฃ of the oldest rainforest ๐ŸŒณ๐ŸŒณ in the world ๐Ÿ—บ๐ŸŒ at 130 million years old

Within it, lays a geographical ๐ŸŒ wonder of permanently untouched & protected habitat for flora ๐ŸŒณ๐ŸŒฑ๐ŸŒฟ๐ŸŒบ & fauna ๐Ÿฆ“๐Ÿ†๐Ÿ…๐Ÿ˜ to florish to all its glory

As such, this a perfect ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป platform for the development of a hub towards the education of conservation of the ecology surrounding Taman Negara & rainforests in general ๐ŸŒณ๐ŸŒณ

We strongly believe that Taman Negara ๐ŸŒณ๐ŸŒณ has the potential to be a global ๐Ÿ—บ๐ŸŒ platform for the both Eco & Adventure education tourism centre ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

My ๐Ÿ‘จ๐Ÿปโ€๐Ÿ’ผ humble beginnings of 30 plus years specialising in tourism at Taman Negara ๐ŸŒณ๐ŸŒณ & the handling of some 1๏ธโƒฃ million over tourists ๐Ÿ‘ซ๐Ÿ‘ญ๐Ÿ‘ฌ since day 1๏ธโƒฃ, has led me ๐Ÿ‘จ๐Ÿปโ€๐Ÿ’ผ to the formation of 2๏ธโƒฃ travel agencies (NKS & Han Travel) & a resort ๐Ÿก๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿก with the biggest room capacity at Kuala Tahan. We average 30k tourists ๐Ÿ‘ฌ๐Ÿ‘ซ๐Ÿ‘ญ a year & 90% of them are from Europe ๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ง ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡น ๐Ÿ‡ฉ๐Ÿ‡ช ๐ŸŒ๐Ÿ—บ

It has come to a time, where I ๐Ÿ‘จ๐Ÿปโ€๐Ÿ’ผ feel personally, having been in this trade for 30 odd years, it is time to educate the younger generation ๐Ÿ‘ง๐Ÿป๐Ÿง’๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘ฆ๐Ÿป๐Ÿง‘๐Ÿป & anyone from all walks of life willing to learn about the conservation ๐Ÿ’š of the ecology & its surroundings

We at Han Travel, have formed 2๏ธโƒฃ new ๐Ÿ†• arms in our corporation to execute the upcoming programs called Eco Adventure Tourism ๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿ’š

This will be encased with the educational arm named the Eco Educational Tourism, headed by Mr Frank Kee & his team ๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿปโ€โ™‚๏ธ๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿ’๐Ÿปโ€โ™‚๏ธ๐Ÿ’๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ & in support ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿป with the activities provided by the Adventure Management Tourism headed by Mr Kevin Bateman & his team ๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿฝโ€โ™‚๏ธ๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿ’๐Ÿปโ€โ™‚๏ธ๐Ÿ’๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ

Just 1๏ธโƒฃ of our examples for the educational program is the re-planting of bamboo ๐ŸŽ‹๐ŸŽor specific trees ๐ŸŒณ๐ŸŒณ by badly eroded areas in the effort to prevent further damage to the riversides ๐Ÿ’ฆ๐Ÿ’ง

This is just an example of what we would provide as a CSR initiative ๐Ÿ˜€

We shall be working closely with the Sultan Ahmad Environmental foundation ๐Ÿ’š in its efforts, participate & uphold its values ๐Ÿ˜Š

Alas, with our planning & preparation, we now realise that we face a huge stumbling block ๐Ÿ˜ฅ๐Ÿ˜“ We do not a permanent site to conduct our activities in a conducive & safe manner ๐Ÿ˜Œ

Also, current rules & regulations by the government sectors should be looked at & revised to enable operators like us ๐Ÿ‘ญ๐Ÿ‘ซ๐Ÿ‘ฌ to introduce & execute the mutually beneficial conservational education programs ๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿ’š

In the extended period, the efforts will benefit not just the environment ๐Ÿ’š๐ŸŒณ๐Ÿ’š but also creating employment opportunity to the locals within its surroundings ๐Ÿ‘ญ๐Ÿ‘ฌ๐Ÿ‘ซ

I๐Ÿ‘จ๐Ÿปโ€๐Ÿ’ผnow urge, the Pahang state Government, Ministry of Tourism & other related government agencies to assist us in paving the way into this journey with us ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป๐Ÿค๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป

Other Asian countries are already promoting their countrysโ€™ tagline, for example;-

  • Thailand ๐Ÿ‡น๐Ÿ‡ญ ~ Culture tourism
  • Indonesia ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡ฉ ~ Art tourism
  • Philippines ๐Ÿ‡ต๐Ÿ‡ญ ~ Diving tourism
  • Malaysia ๐Ÿ‡ฒ๐Ÿ‡พ ~ Eco & Adventure tourism

All told, our Ministry of Tourism Malaysia ๐Ÿ‡ฒ๐Ÿ‡พ have also set their vision ๐Ÿ’ญ on Eco Tourism ๐Ÿ’š with its plans & implementation of its program from 2025 & continued focusing till 2050

Han Travel Sdn Bhd, is now at the final phases of the planning & is almost ready to launch our initial program on Eco & Adventure Tourism ๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿ’š The launch pad & operations will be at the Han Rainforest Resort, Kuala Tahan ๐Ÿก๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿก

We hope our efforts will promote & drive the state of Pahang to be model state & also the centre of Ecological ๐Ÿ’š Awareness & the centre for the Education on Rainforest Preservation ๐ŸŒณ๐ŸŒณ

Once again, I ๐Ÿ‘จ๐Ÿปโ€๐Ÿ’ผ believe that our vision is in line with the Pahang State governmentโ€™s. Developing a fully functioning centre where the education of the ecology ๐Ÿ’š can spread to all walks of life through an experiential process where participants ๐Ÿ‘ซ๐Ÿ‘ญ๐Ÿ‘ฌ can touch, feel, smell, see and hear the importance of the ecology ๐Ÿ’šaround us & the threats to its and our existence ๐Ÿ˜ƒ๐Ÿ˜
