6 Must-Do Experiences in Phatthalung, Thailand ðŸ‡¹ðŸ‡­

Yeah‼️ SiennyLovesDrawing 👩🏻 had a short vacation 🛫 recently to Phatthalung พัทลุง of Southern Thailand 🇹🇭 It’s just approximately 2️⃣ hours road journey 🚌🚍 from Hatyai 🇹🇭

So, what’s the exciting places 📍📍 in Phatthalung❓⁉️

Here you go, she is gonna sharing 👩🏻‍💻📝 about the 6️⃣ must-do experiences 👍🏻👆🏻from her recent travel journey 🎒🕶🧢👟

1. Canoeing Rafting @ Longkang Chowdaw

Amazing colourful 💚💜💗 canoeing 🚣🏻‍♀️🚣🏻‍♂️ rafting 💦💧 with green nature 💚🌱🌿🌳 surroundings at both sides of the river 💦💧~ Nan Mot Daeng, Pah Phayom district, Phatthalung province. The river water 💦💧just so cooling & crystal 💎 clear which SiennyLovesDrawing 👩🏻 has observed fishes 🐟🐟 & seaweeds 🌿🌿 from above the water 💦💧during her canoeing journey 🚣🏻‍♀️😍

Hmm…Nan Mot Daeng❓⁉️ What it means❓⁉️

She has asked the local people 🇹🇭👫👬👭 & was explained that in local Thai dialect

  • “Nan” means “Kaeng” i.e. rapids
  • “Mot Daeng” means red ants 🐜

According to the local Thai people 🇹🇭👫👭👬 here, Nan Mot Daeng is a never-ending source for fishes 🐟🐟 Once they got the fish 🎣, they would cut the head & tail of the fish 🐟 Then, the smell of the fish 🐟 will attract numerous red ants 🐜 to feast on it 🐟 In this connection, the origin of the name “Nan Mot Daeng” 😀

 

The rafting 💦💧distance of approximately 6️⃣km i.e. 2️⃣hours in total. She has enjoyed with friends 👫👭👬 the canoeing 🚣🏻‍♀️🚣🏻‍♂️ along the narrow stream through about 4️⃣0️⃣rapids with the difficulty between Levels 1️⃣ to 3️⃣ Not to worry as she was without great canoeing 🚣🏻‍♀️ skill & yet she really had great fun 👍🏻😃 Really highly recommended 👆🏻 & not to be missed ya 🤩😎

At some strong currents flowing 💦💧 if the canoes were 🚣🏻‍♀️🚣🏻‍♂️ being flipped upside-down ↕️🔃🔄 are considered normal, yes ✅ , it forms part of the fun 🤣😆

Guess what❓⁉️

In the middle of the river 💦💧, you may stop 🛑✋ by for resting at a local 7-11 stall 😀 She has enjoyed a local berries 🍒🍒

You may enjoy canoeing 🚣🏻‍♀️🚣🏻‍♂️ rafting here all year long, no specific season, however if raining 🌧☔️ season, the water 💦💧 level will be higher & certain rapids would be rougher to enjoy the excitement 🤣😆

  • Put the egg 🥚slowly on the ground of the hole prepared for turtle 🐢 eggs 🥚🥚planting
  • Then, covered the sand, fence up & labelled with date of egg🥚planting

2018-09-23 10.10.06

For about 3️⃣ months, the eggs🥚🥚will lay incubating in the sand, only for the hatchlings 🐢🐢 to emerge during a full moon 🌕 & speed their way to the ocean 🌊

In the years to come, many will return 🐢🐢 to the very same beach 🏖🏝, completing the cycle of life. Of course RWK 🏢🏝🏖 always will be there waiting to welcome them back 🐢🐢🏝🏖🥚🥚

ii. Turtles hatchling releasing🥚🥚🐢🐢 to the ocean 🌊

When SiennyLovesDrawing 👩🏻 has holded up a baby turtle 🐢 , she felt touched in her heart ❤️ as only 1️⃣ to ️3️⃣️ in 1️⃣️k baby turtles 🐢🐢 will live long enough after releasing to ocean  🌊

Ohh….What❓⁉️

She has blessed kiss 😘 the baby turtle ~ Little Sienny 🐢 ~ to have a safe growing up journey to the sea 🌊

 

It’s advised to let the baby turtles 🐢🐢 to crawling on their own at least short distance from the beach 🏝🏖  to the sea 🌊 , it forms part of their growing journey

 

iii. Coconut tree planting 🌴🥥

Hmm…Why❓⁉️

Coconut trees 🌴🌴🥥🥥 can live 💯+ years, producing over thousands of coconuts 🥥🥥 in it’s lifetimeo‼️ Wow‼️ 😲🤪

Ecotourism @ Belum Temenggor

It’s World 🌍🗺️ Habitat Day today, every year the 1️⃣st Monday of October

Yeah‼️SiennyLovesDrawing 👩🏻 is gonna sharing 👩🏻‍💻📝 about her recent volunteer participation with Malaysian Nature Society (MNS), a non-governmental non-profit organization (NGO) to learn about ecotourism 💚 @ Belum Temenggor🌳🌳, in particular hornbill conservation & habitat for its local communities ~ indigenous people aka orang asli 👶🏽👧🏽🧒🏽👦🏽🧑🏽🙋🏽‍♀️🙋🏽‍♂️👵🏽🧓🏽👴🏽in Malaysia 🇲🇾’s national language

IMG-20180917-WA0024.jpg

Since 2004, MNS aims to promoting hornbills conservation in Belum Temenggor Forest Complex 🌳🌳 (BTFC)(1️⃣of the oldest virgin rainforest on Earth, 130 million years old) & to enhancing public awareness of the importance of hornbills to the rainforests’🌳🌳 ecosystem 👍🏻🙌🏻

IMG_8159.JPG

Malaysia 🇲🇾 is home 🏡 to 🔟 Malaysian hornbills & dubbed the ‘Hornbill Capital of the World🌍’ with its Perak state being recognized as the Land of Hornbills

  1. Oriental Pied Hornbill, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oriental_pied_hornbill
  2. Black Hornbill, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Black_hornbill
  3. Bushy-crested Hornbill, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bushy-crested_hornbill
  4. White-crowned Hornbill, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/White-crowned_hornbill
  5. Wreathed Hornbill, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wreathed_hornbill

All-10-hornbill-species-found-in-Malaysia-painted-by-renowned-wildlife-local-artist-Mr.png

Not only Borneo‼️ Yes ✅, in fact Peninsular Malaysia 🇲🇾 with all  🔟 hornbill species comparatively 😃

This volunteer participation has recalled her memory of 1️⃣st hornbill feeding @ Pangkor Island early this year

 

BTFC 🌳🌳 aka Northern Peninsular Malaysia🇲🇾’s Natural Jewels 💎, the only remaining contiguous block to tropical rainforests 🌳🌳 which linking to Southern Thailand 🇹🇭 i.e. Bang Lang National Park & Hala Bala Wildlife Sanctuary, also part of the Titiwangsa Range 💚

IMG_7369.JPG

Currently, only BTFC 🌳🌳 & the Greater Ulu Muda Forest Complex 🌳🌳 are on par for the hornbill diversity in Malaysia 🇲🇾, then together with the Southern Thailand 🇹🇭, all made up for the Hornbill Triangle (HoT)🔺

Hornbills get its name from its horn-like projection i.e. a casque on their beaks (Hmm…Not all hornbill species have them though) 😊

Hornbills are well known as the farmers 👨🏻‍🌾👩🏻‍🌾 of the rainforests 🌳🌳

Ohh…Why❓⁉️

Hornbills fly long distances looking for fruits🍎🍏 & swallow fruits🍎🍏in whole. Hmm…Some fruits 🍎🍏 are with big seeds. As they spit out countless seeds, some seeds find a place to grow & become new 🆕 trees 🌳🌳

However, really dissappointed & sad 😧😔 that some of the hornbill species are experiencing critically endangered & vulnerable. In this connection, if lesser ⬇️ hornbills, many rainforest trees 🌳🌳 that depend on them to spread their seeds may disappear from the rainforest 🌳🌳eventually

Why❓⁉️ Why❓⁉️Why❓⁉️

Some of the main reasons are destruction/ loss of the hornbills’ habitats & degradation due to deforestation (Photo 📸 below captured from BRAINS Summit 2018), fragmentation of rainforests 🌳🌳, illegal logging (Photo 📸 below captured by SiennyLovesDrawing 👩🏻 during her volunteer trip), poaching & hunting, conversion to agriculture e.g. oil palm plantations, over-development etc. 😧😔

IMG_8151.jpg

IMG_8161.JPG

As the rainforests 🌳🌳disappear, so does indigenous peoples’👶🏽👧🏽🧒🏽👦🏽🧑🏽🙋🏽‍♀️🙋🏽‍♂️👵🏽🧓🏽👴🏽culture too 😧😔 as their living style very much depended on the rainforests 🌳🌳 for medicine, shelter, food, other necessities etc. They are not known to take more than what they need as this would be seen as a transgression of the rainforest 🌳🌳 & would bring curses to their people. So, the destruction of their prime resource is resulting in the destruction of their traditional ways of life 😧😔

IMG_7363.JPG

You may not aware that BTFC 🌳🌳consists of 2️⃣ big parts,

  1. Temengor Forest Reserve ~ the southern part of BTFC is largely a production forest 🌳🌳
  2. Royal Belum State Park ~ the northern part, a protected area🌳🌳

MNS has been working hard for years to get the whole BTFC a protected area 🌳🌳 with its ecotourism 💚 efforts 👍🏻🙌🏻💪🏻 Hope they will achieve success very soon

“MY forest 🌳 , MY wildlife, MY responsibility”

Curious 🤔 about what SiennyLovesDrawing 👩🏻 has participated & learnt during her 4️⃣D3️⃣N volunteering with MNS❓⁉️

MNS Hornbill Festival🎉🎊

The 1️⃣st  festival 🎉🎊 & annually every 16 Septto bring awareness & encourage orang asli👶🏽👧🏽🧒🏽👦🏽🧑🏽🙋🏽‍♀️🙋🏽‍♂️👵🏽🧓🏽👴🏽communities to participate for hornbill conservation under the Malaysian 🇲🇾 implementation of the project, My Forest ~ “Strengthening Non-State Actor Involvement in Forest Governance in Indonesia 🇮🇩 , Malaysia 🇲🇾 , the Philippines 🇵🇭 & Papua New Guinea 🇵🇬 ” which funded by the European Union 🇪🇺

She has captured an interview clip 📹🎥 with Mr Balu, the Head of Conservation with MNS ~ “Hornbill Conservation Effort by MNS

MY forest is a high⬆️-impact partnership, as it looks at Malaysia🇲🇾’s natural 💚 heritage ~ rainforests 🌳🌳 & how non-state actors ~ non-governmental organisations, civil societies, local communities, the private sector & the public – can inform & change policies towards better rainforest governance.  Under this 5️⃣-year project (2017-2021), MNS is tasked with building the capacity of non-state actors from all around Malaysia 🇲🇾 to engage more effectively with the government in protecting Malaysia🇲🇾’s rainforests 🌳🌳

 

She had great interactions with the orang asli kids 👶🏽👧🏽🧒🏽👦🏽🧑🏽 & adults🙋🏽‍♀️🙋🏽‍♂️👵🏽🧓🏽👴🏽about nature awareness, art🎨🖍activities, sumpit, balloons🎈🎈, survey questionnaires❓❓etc. by using simple Malaysia 🇲🇾 ‘s national language ~ Bahasa Melayu 👌🏻✌🏻👍🏻

She got inspired by the orang asli hornbill guardians’ passion 💗 towards hornbills conservation 👍🏻👏🏻🙌🏻 Truly motivated with the positivity 🙏🏻👆🏻Really wish local communities here with skills gained from ecotourism efforts by MNS to improving their overall living lifestyle & being happy self sufficient 👍🏻💪🏻🙌🏻

This is really rare & can only be found in 3️⃣ other countries in the world i.e. Green Island in Taiwan 🇹🇼 (nearby sea 🌊 side), Kyushu Island in Japan 🇯🇵 & Sicily in Italy 🇮🇹 So, a must visit when you’re at Langkawi Island 🌴🏖👍🏻

Natural hot salted spring water 💦💧is being pumped in the small ponds & fountains within a landscaped gardens 🌳🌿🌷🌹🌺🌼🌻🌸 & reflexology 👣👣 paths

You will sure note the small hot water 💦💧 bubbles within the pools as the natural hot spring water 💦💧comes out from the bottom part of the well while you’re relaxing soaking your feet 👣 into then 😊

Hmm…She has read 📖 some unfavourable comments, however from her recent visit, she notes that the maintaining is all right & of course can be enhanced. Overall, it’s clean & comfy for her 1️⃣st salted hot spring 💦💧experience 😀 She loves it ❤️

Highly recommended 👍🏻👆🏻for a family visit. She was told that the salted hot spring water 💦💧can cure skin disease, improve on joint pain etc.
