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 ~ 

Yes ✅, she đŸ‘©đŸ» has booked đŸ‘©đŸ»â€đŸ’»đŸ›’ more than a tour…do stay tune for her next blogging ya đŸ‘©đŸ»â€đŸ’»đŸ“

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 🌐 http://www.dtac.co.th/en/home.html

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/

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❓⁉

She đŸ‘©đŸ» has chosen ✅ for Phnom Penh 🇰🇭 under Lane B with a very 1ïžâƒŁst intention to meet & visit 1ïžâƒŁ of her girlfriend đŸ™‹đŸ»â€â™€ïž who is working there as an expatriate currently. However, sadly 😟 that her friend đŸ™‹đŸ»â€â™€ïž wasn’t around ❌ Phnom Penh 🇰🇭 during her travel dates 🗓 Sigh…From a friend visit👭, then she had it as 1ïžâƒŁ of her annual solo travelsss đŸŽ’đŸ§ąđŸ•¶đŸ‘Ÿ

💗 ~ Everything Happens For A Reason ~ 💗

Also initially she đŸ‘©đŸ» did plan to let go this solo trip because of a clash to a tourism event ~ MITA Sarawak, Malaysia đŸ‡ČđŸ‡Ÿ that she đŸ‘©đŸ» has always supporting đŸ’ȘđŸ»âœŒđŸ»the tourism authority 😊 in Malaysia đŸ‡ČđŸ‡Ÿïž

Guess what❓⁉

Her trip is gonna be during the annual Cambodian 🇰🇭 Water 💩💧 Festival 🎉🎊 named Bon Om Touk in local Khmer language 🇰🇭 from 21 Nov to 23 Nov 2018 😃😁 It also known as The Pirogue đŸšŁđŸ»â€â™‚ïžđŸšŁđŸ»â€â™€ïž Racing Festival 🎉🎊 or Water 💩💧 & Moon 🌑 Festival 🎉🎊 & Boat Racing đŸšŁđŸ»â€â™€ïžđŸšŁđŸ»â€â™‚ïž

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

It was really a coincident‌ Once she đŸ‘©đŸ»Â has decided ✅ to stay with this solo travel đŸŽ’đŸ•¶đŸ§ąđŸ‘Ÿ due to the complicated & difficult flight change đŸ˜ŸâœˆïžÂ Also this gonna be her 1ïžâƒŁst visit to Phnom Penh, Cambodia 🇰🇭

This biggest celebration marks a 12th century naval victory with boat đŸšŁđŸ»â€â™€ïžđŸšŁđŸ»â€â™‚ïž racing along the Sisowath Quay 💩💧 with the boat đŸšŁđŸ»â€â™€ïžđŸšŁđŸ»â€â™‚ïž racing on the Tonle Sap River, in particular the area stretching from street 104 to street 178 of Phnom Penh city centre 🇰🇭

Many hostels 🏡🏘, hotels 🏱, restaurants đŸœđŸŽ & bars đŸ„‚đŸ»đŸžaround this area ~ Very convenience for all visitors đŸ‘«đŸ‘­đŸ‘Ź

In the morning 🔅🔆 & before the race đŸšŁđŸ»â€â™‚ïžđŸšŁđŸ»â€â™€ïž starts during this 3ïžâƒŁ-day festival 🎉🎀, the riverside & streets were much more peaceful 😌

Once the race starts around 🔟am, the huge crowd đŸ‘­đŸ‘ŹđŸ‘« at the riverside will be observed đŸ˜ƒđŸ‘đŸ»đŸ™ŒđŸ»

However, in 2015 this celebration 🎉🎊 was cancelled ❌ due to the low âŹ‡ïž water level 💩💧

Hurray‌ She đŸ‘©đŸ» always wanna appreciating & experiencing a country’s tradition culture during her travels âœˆïžđŸŽ’đŸ•¶đŸ§ąđŸ‘ŸÂ This is just so a lovely 💓 coincidence 😉

So, what’s this water 💩💧 festival 🎊🎉 all about❓⁉

It’s a 3ïžâƒŁ days non-religious celebration 🎉🎊 & symbolised as an ancient appreciation đŸ™đŸ» for centuries to the river 💩💧for providing a source of livelihood to the farmers đŸ‘šđŸ»â€đŸŒŸđŸ‘©đŸ»â€đŸŒŸ & fishermen 🐟🎣

Hmm…It’s a kind of local Khmers đŸ‡°đŸ‡­đŸ‘«đŸ‘­đŸ‘Ź thanksgiving 🙏 celebration 🎉🎊

The Cambodian boat crews đŸ‡°đŸ‡­đŸšŁđŸ»â€â™€ïžđŸšŁđŸ»â€â™‚ïž were face forward. Many of the boat crews đŸšŁđŸ»â€â™€ïžđŸšŁđŸ»â€â™‚ïž were complemented with a colorfully-costumed lady đŸ’đŸ»â€â™€ïžat the prow dancing to the beat of the drums đŸ„đŸ„

However, from her observation, majority of the boats now don’t really practising this tradition though. Hmm…From her 2ïžâƒŁ days visits to the festival, she only noticed for 2ïžâƒŁÂ boats with a colorfully-costumed lady đŸ’đŸ»â€â™€ïž at the front of the boat đŸšŁđŸ»â€â™€ïžđŸšŁđŸ»â€â™‚ïž

For the 1ïžâƒŁst 2ïžâƒŁ days, races đŸšŁđŸ»â€â™€ïžđŸšŁđŸ»â€â™‚ïž are run with 2ïžâƒŁ boats đŸ›¶đŸ›¶ each, with the big race đŸšŁđŸ»â€â™‚ïžđŸšŁđŸ»â€â™‚ïž happening on the last day, when all the boats đŸ›¶đŸ›¶ take to the river 💩💧 to compete 😃

There were carnival, rides, traditional music đŸŽŒđŸŽ¶đŸŽ” performances, dances đŸ’ƒđŸ»đŸ•șđŸŒđŸ‘Żâ€â™€ïžđŸ‘Żâ€â™‚ïžđŸ•ŽđŸ»etc. in the evening 🏙🌃🌌

There were many stall vendors, definitely food 🍛đŸČđŸ„˜đŸœđŸŽ& drink đŸ„€đŸ»đŸ·đŸ„‚đŸžđŸčoverflow on the streets, Khmer pop bands đŸŽŒđŸŽčđŸŽ§đŸŽ¶đŸŽ”entertaining the crowds đŸ‘­đŸ‘ŹđŸ‘« etc.

Personally, she đŸ‘©đŸ» was impressed how the local vendors actually earn their living 💰by selling drinks đŸ„€& snacks đŸ„ĄđŸ°đŸ„§đŸ„Ș to the huge crowds đŸ‘­đŸ‘ŹđŸ‘« at the riverside during the boat racing đŸšŁđŸ»â€â™€ïžđŸšŁđŸ»â€â™‚ïž

There were approximately 300 boats đŸ›¶đŸ›¶ with 19k pax of boat rowers đŸšŁđŸ»â€â™€ïžđŸšŁđŸ»â€â™‚ïž Wow!!

Hmm…đŸ€” How about the huge crowd đŸ‘­đŸ‘«đŸ‘Źattended for this 3ïžâƒŁ-day festival celebration 🎉🎊 in Phnom Penh❓⁉

IMG_4571.JPG

It was about 4.5million people đŸ‘­đŸ‘ŹđŸ‘« including expatriates, foreign visitors, local Khmers from all provinces etc. as shared at the closing ceremony 😁

Ohh yeah‌ This year, 2018 i.e. The 3rd great successfull year with Cambodia 🇰🇭 has handbuilt the world 🌍đŸ—ș ‘s longest rowing boat đŸšŁđŸ»â€â™€ïž at 87.3m long & 1.99m wide with cost of $60k. It was completed successfully đŸ‘đŸ»đŸ‘đŸ»đŸ™ŒđŸ» in Sept by more than 14k local Khmers đŸ‡°đŸ‡­đŸ‘­đŸ‘ŹđŸ‘« in 192 days đŸ˜Č😃

Guess what❓⁉

Another Guinness World 🌍đŸ—ș Record 🏆 won (It’s the 5ïžâƒŁth one) by Cambodia 🇰🇭 as this long dragon boat đŸšŁđŸ»â€â™‚ïž is capable of carrying 179 boat rowers đŸšŁđŸ»â€â™‚ïžđŸšŁđŸ»â€â™€ïž on it‌ Wow‌đŸ˜Č This great đŸ‘đŸ» news was anounced on 12 Nov at Prey Veng province of Phnom Penh 🇰🇭

From her own experience, a few points 📌📌 to note if you’re interested to be at Phnom Penh or Siem Reap for this great đŸ‘đŸ» annual celebration 🎊🎉

Ohh ya…A pair of comfy shoes 👟 is essentials ✅ because it was vehicles free 🆓 i.e. No public transport ❌🚌🚕🚗 🚐 being available to the festival 🎉🎊 ground📍, more details via 🌐 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 👣

Yeah‌ SiennyLovesDrawing đŸ‘©đŸ» got her sun â˜€ïžđŸŒž protection from the 🆕Petal Velvet Sunaway SPF50 ordered & purchased đŸ‘©đŸ»â€đŸ’»đŸ›’ from Althea KoreaÂ đŸ‡°đŸ‡· You must remember to put up your sunscreen to avoid sunburn

Next, do bring an umbrella 🌂☂ (You may loan it from your hotel, it can be a weapon if needed)/ wear a cap 🧱

Do dress up in a light modest clothing 👚 to enjoy the boat đŸšŁđŸ»â€â™€ïžđŸšŁđŸ»â€â™‚ïž race cheerings with the local Khmers đŸ‡°đŸ‡­đŸ‘­đŸ‘ŹđŸ‘« at the riverside under the hot sunny đŸ˜Žâ˜€ïž day

Ohh ya…Do remember your refillable water 💩💧 bottle to avoid dehydration ya 😌

She đŸ‘©đŸ» was with the local Khmers đŸ‡°đŸ‡­đŸ‘«đŸ‘­đŸ‘Ź on her 1ïžâƒŁst visit & then 2ïžâƒŁnd visit the next day at the designated area by Tourism Cambodia 🇰🇭 for the foreign tourists đŸ‘ŹđŸ‘«đŸ‘­Â (Served with free 🆓 flow of drinksđŸ„€đŸ„€available)

The riversides 💩💧 were extremely packed & crowded đŸ‘ŹđŸ‘«đŸ‘­ with both the local Khmers đŸ‡°đŸ‡­đŸ‘«đŸ‘­đŸ‘Ź & foreign tourists to cheering for their favorite ❀ boatsđŸšŁđŸ»â€â™‚ïžđŸšŁđŸ»â€â™€ïž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 đŸ‘­đŸ‘ŹđŸ‘«

Why❓⁉

Hmm…You never know whether you will be being targetted by any pick-pockets/ bag-snatchers 😈👿 whom may just roaming around the crowded festival 🎉🎊 riversides 💩💧& streets. So, even though this festival 🎉🎊 is a free 🆓 celebration 🎉🎊 , however it can get really expensive if you make a mistake by carrying valuables into the crowds đŸ‘­đŸ‘ŹđŸ‘«

Always better be safe then sorry ya â˜șïžđŸ˜‰

There were several types of rowing đŸšŁđŸ»â€â™€ïžđŸšŁđŸ»â€â™‚ïž styles observed from her visits, i.e. sitting down & manual rowing, standing up & manual rowing, standing up & auto rowing etc. She đŸ‘©đŸ» is curious đŸ€” how the marks will be allocate within each different styles as well as the determining factors of winning 🏆🎖 too❓⁉

Perhaps logically the shortest time 🕛 of completion from the start till end time of each boat at the finishing line (The 2ïžâƒŁ red ❀ boats đŸšŁđŸ»â€â™€ïžđŸšŁđŸ»â€â™‚ïž as captured in the photo 📾 & vBlog đŸ“čđŸŽ„below)

There were live announcement during the boat racing đŸšŁđŸ»â€â™‚ïžđŸšŁđŸ»â€â™€ïž, however in local Khmer 🇰🇭 language & ❌ no English translation. It would be good to have a live English announcement in the next year festival onwards ya 😊

The King Norodom Sihamoni đŸ€ŽđŸ», Prime Minister Hun Sen đŸ‘šđŸ»â€đŸ’Œ& some senior officials đŸ™‹đŸ»â€â™‚ïžđŸ’đŸ»â€â™‚ïž have all attended the closing ceremony on the last day of this festival 🎉🎊 She đŸ‘©đŸ» has observed from the TV screen đŸ“ș at the foreign visitors designated booth

Ohh ya…She đŸ‘©đŸ» has enjoyed the longest & the pretty đŸ˜đŸ€© fireworks 🎆🎇 so far from the closing ceremony of this water festival 🎉🎊

Really amazing beautiful đŸ˜đŸ€© & with the boats đŸ›¶đŸ›¶ decorated with LED lighting💡💡screens represented by each relevant authorities of organising & managing this water 💩💧 festival 🎊🎉 e.g. Tourism, Justice, Ministry of Art & Handicrafts etc. to name a few noted 😉

SiennyLovesDrawing đŸ‘©đŸ» has captured a vBlog đŸ“čđŸŽ„ for sharing here, do click in to enjoy it ya đŸ€—

Ohh ya…Some of the eateries đŸœđŸŽ & shops 🛒🛍may close ⛔ during this water 💩💧 festival 🎉🎊 (All 3ïžâƒŁ days) & resume their operation then đŸ€—

This festival 🎊🎉 also ended with lots of clean up & tidy up at the riverside by the local Khmers 🇰🇭👬👬👬

National Park Pahang, Malaysia đŸ‡ČđŸ‡Ÿ

Yeah‌ SiennyLovesDrawingÂ đŸ‘©đŸ»Â has recently travelled to Taman Negara 🌳🌳 (aka National Park 🌳🌳 ) Pahang, Malaysia đŸ‡ČđŸ‡Ÿ with MITA business networking trip & enjoyed her back to nature 💚 stay đŸ›ŒđŸšżđŸšœđŸ˜ŽđŸ’€ at Han Rainforest Resort 🏡🏘🏡

She đŸ‘©đŸ» had a privilege to meet & enjoyed an inspiring chat đŸ—ŁđŸ‘€ with the founder of the resort🏡🏘🏡, Mr Kenny Ng đŸ‘šđŸ»â€đŸ’Œ(Uncle Kenny) about his nature 💚 💚 passion & resort busines journey

Oppsss…SiennyLovesDrawing đŸ‘©đŸ» has forgot đŸ€ŠđŸ»â€â™€ïž to have a photo 📾 with Uncle KennyÂ đŸ‘šđŸ»â€đŸ’ŒÂ during this trip

He đŸ‘šđŸ»â€đŸ’Œ has generously shared an article âœđŸ»đŸ“œwrote by him & SiennyLovesDrawing đŸ‘©đŸ» would like to share đŸ‘©đŸ»â€đŸ’»đŸ“ it here, inclusion of her favourite ❀ emojisss & capturesss 📾 in between 😃😁

đŸ€—Â ~ Sharing is caring as always ~~ đŸ€—

Taman Negara🌳🌳, situated in the heart ❀of Pahang, Malaysia đŸ‡ČđŸ‡Ÿ , is 1ïžâƒŁ of the oldest rainforest 🌳🌳 in the world đŸ—ș🌍 at 130 million years old

Within it, lays a geographical 🌍 wonder of permanently untouched & protected habitat for flora đŸŒłđŸŒ±đŸŒżđŸŒș & fauna 🩓🐆🐅🐘 to florish to all its glory

As such, this a perfect đŸ‘đŸ» platform for the development of a hub towards the education of conservation of the ecology surrounding Taman Negara & rainforests in general 🌳🌳

We strongly believe that Taman Negara 🌳🌳 has the potential to be a global đŸ—ș🌍 platform for the both Eco & Adventure education tourism centre 😃

My đŸ‘šđŸ»â€đŸ’Œ humble beginnings of 30 plus years specialising in tourism at Taman Negara 🌳🌳 & the handling of some 1ïžâƒŁ million over tourists đŸ‘«đŸ‘­đŸ‘Ź since day 1ïžâƒŁ, has led me đŸ‘šđŸ»â€đŸ’Œ to the formation of 2ïžâƒŁ travel agencies (NKS & Han Travel) & a resort 🏡🏘🏡 with the biggest room capacity at Kuala Tahan. We average 30k tourists đŸ‘ŹđŸ‘«đŸ‘­ a year & 90% of them are from Europe 🇬🇧 🇼đŸ‡č đŸ‡©đŸ‡Ș 🌍đŸ—ș

It has come to a time, where I đŸ‘šđŸ»â€đŸ’Œ feel personally, having been in this trade for 30 odd years, it is time to educate the younger generation đŸ‘§đŸ»đŸ§’đŸ»đŸ‘ŠđŸ»đŸ§‘đŸ» & anyone from all walks of life willing to learn about the conservation 💚 of the ecology & its surroundings

We at Han Travel, have formed 2ïžâƒŁ new 🆕 arms in our corporation to execute the upcoming programs called Eco Adventure Tourism 💚💚

This will be encased with the educational arm named the Eco Educational Tourism, headed by Mr Frank Kee & his team đŸ™‹đŸ»â€â™‚ïžđŸ™‹đŸ»â€â™€ïžđŸ’đŸ»â€â™‚ïžđŸ’đŸ»â€â™€ïž & in support đŸ’ȘđŸ» with the activities provided by the Adventure Management Tourism headed by Mr Kevin Bateman & his team đŸ™‹đŸœâ€â™‚ïžđŸ™‹đŸ»â€â™€ïžđŸ’đŸ»â€â™‚ïžđŸ’đŸ»â€â™€ïž

Just 1ïžâƒŁ of our examples for the educational program is the re-planting of bamboo 🎋🎍or specific trees 🌳🌳 by badly eroded areas in the effort to prevent further damage to the riversides 💩💧

This is just an example of what we would provide as a CSR initiative 😀

We shall be working closely with the Sultan Ahmad Environmental foundation 💚 in its efforts, participate & uphold its values 😊

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

Also, current rules & regulations by the government sectors should be looked at & revised to enable operators like us đŸ‘­đŸ‘«đŸ‘Ź to introduce & execute the mutually beneficial conservational education programs 💚💚

In the extended period, the efforts will benefit not just the environment 💚🌳💚 but also creating employment opportunity to the locals within its surroundings đŸ‘­đŸ‘ŹđŸ‘«

IđŸ‘šđŸ»â€đŸ’Œnow urge, the Pahang state Government, Ministry of Tourism & other related government agencies to assist us in paving the way into this journey with us đŸ™đŸ»đŸ€đŸ‘đŸ»đŸ™ŒđŸ»

Other Asian countries are already promoting their countrys’ tagline, for example;-

  • Thailand đŸ‡č🇭 ~ Culture tourism
  • Indonesia đŸ‡źđŸ‡© ~ Art tourism
  • Philippines đŸ‡”đŸ‡­ ~ Diving tourism
  • Malaysia đŸ‡ČđŸ‡Ÿ ~ Eco & Adventure tourism

All told, our Ministry of Tourism Malaysia đŸ‡ČđŸ‡Ÿ have also set their vision 💭 on Eco Tourism 💚 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 💚💚 The launch pad & operations will be at the Han Rainforest Resort, Kuala Tahan 🏡🏘🏡

We hope our efforts will promote & drive the state of Pahang to be model state & also the centre of Ecological 💚 Awareness & the centre for the Education on Rainforest Preservation 🌳🌳

Once again, I đŸ‘šđŸ»â€đŸ’Œ believe that our vision is in line with the Pahang State government’s. Developing a fully functioning centre where the education of the ecology 💚 can spread to all walks of life through an experiential process where participants đŸ‘«đŸ‘­đŸ‘Ź can touch, feel, smell, see and hear the importance of the ecology 💚around us & the threats to its and our existence 😃😁

Thank you đŸ™đŸ»
