6 Must-Do Experiences in Phatthalung, Thailand 🇹🇭

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 🤣😆

Hmm…To be fair, that’s couples of years ago…yes✅, a long long time 😌

 

Guess what❓⁉️

She actually only remembered Langkawi Island 🌴🏖🏝 for duty free 🆓 shopping 🛒🛍🎁 & must buy chocolatesss 🍫🍫😋🤤

Ha…Ha…Definitely more than just that, SiennyLovesDrawing 👩🏻 is gonna sharing some places📍📍recently explored during her island stay 🌴🏖🏝

Air Hangat 💦💧Village 🏘🏡🏘

Air Hangat / Ayer Hangat 💦💧Village 🏘🏡🏘 (In Malaysia🇲🇾’s national language & meant for hot spring village) is located approximately 14km (20mins drive🚗🚙) North of the Kuah Town (its largest town) of Langkawi Island 🌴🏖🏝

There are 3️⃣-tiered hot spring 💦💧wells here & well known as its centre of attraction 👍🏻😍🤩

Guess what❓⁉️

It’s a natural salt water 💦💧hot spring ya

Yes✅, not the commonly found fresh water 💦💧 hot spring within Malaysia🇲🇾

Moreover, it’s not nearby sea 🌊 side, this village is located 📍in the middle of Langkawi Island 🌴🏖🏝

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.

Then, it was granted with the Certificate of Membership dubbed the Green 💚 Card by Asia Pacific Geoparks Network, under the auspices of the Global 🌍 Geopark Network (GGN). Bravo‼️🙌🏻👏🏻

Hmm…What’s a Geopark❓⁉️

It should comprise of a territory with well-defined limits that has a large enough surface area for it to serve local economic development. Yes,✅ a certain number of geological heritage sites (any scale) / a mosaic of geological entities of special scientific importance, rarity / beauty, representative of an area & its geological history, events / processes. It may not solely be of geological significance but also of ecological, archaeological, historical / cultural value (reference from its website🌐) 🤩

🌐 https://siennylovesdrawing.wordpress.com/2018/07/24/mita-business-networking-langkawi-island/

With the continuous great 👍 effort of organising more tourism events moving forward, surely will increasing ⬆️ the 1.1% growth of 2017 overall tourism employment rate & future years 👏🏻🙌🏻

This tourism event was held📍with concurrent sessions in the grand ballroom of Royale Chulan Seremban 🏢,

Hmm…What’s the objectives 📌 of this MITA Business To Business (B2B) at N9️⃣❓⁉️

MITA aims to,

1) Showcasing Tourism Products @ N9️⃣

2) Networking among tourism players 👭👫👬

3) Maximizing ⬆️ the productivity of local tourism asset, including locally produced art & craft 🎨🖌

SiennyLovesDrawing 👩🏻 had an awesome 🤩 learning experience of handmaking 👐🏻🙌🏻 a colourful 🌈 basket with rattan at the booth of Malaysia 🇲🇾 Handicraft Development Corporation ~ N9️⃣ branch 😀

4) Providing a platform 🗣👥👤👥 to identify issues & challenges in hampering productivity growth 📈

She 👩🏻 has learnt a lot from the forum 🗣👥👤👥 which moderated by YBhg Dato’ K Thangavelu ~ “Challenges & Opportunities for Tourism in Negeri Sembilan” with panelists from Tourism Malaysia, N9️⃣ Economic Planning unit (EPU), MPS, MITA’ s Chinese Individual Market & MITA’s Incentive group

Some of the challenges faced to continue developing N9️⃣ as a greater 👍🏻 tourist destination📍among both local & foreign tourists👭👫👬 including low ⬇️ awareness of its tourist spots📍📍to visit, having enough multi-language talented tourist guides 👫👬👭especially to service the increasing trend of China 🇨🇳 tourists 👭👫👬, greater 👍🏻 transportation infrastructure 🚊🚖🚞🚌 in place to receiving greater ⬆️ no. of tourists 👭👬👫 to N9️⃣ etc.

6) Receiving the latest update on strategies by Local Tourism Authorities i.e. Ministry of Tourism, Arts and Culture Malaysia (MOTAC), MPS, Tourism Productivity Nexus, MPC etc. 👍🏻

7) Implementing Tourism Product Audit practices

The choice of tourist destinations📍 are both Seremban & Port Dickson (PD) of N9️⃣, West Malaysia 🇲🇾 Hmm…Why N9️⃣❓⁉️

“It’s because N9️⃣ located📍in between South states of West Malaysia 🇲🇾 to Kuala Lumpur (KL) 🌆🌃 & both local & foreign tourists 👫👭👬 will passing by whenever travelling on the road 🚗🚕🚌🚐 from South, however most of the time missing it by not stopping by to learn more & experiencing its Adat Perpatih cultures” said Mr Uzaidi Udanis 👨🏽‍💼, the President of MITA & Chairman of the Tourism Productivity Nexus during the event

Why?❓⁉️

SiennyLovesDrawing 👩🏻 is gonna recommending a comfy & cheap hostel 🏡 nearby Bangkok Don Mueang airport ✈️🛫🛬It’s really nearby‼️

Special thanks to the details received upon hostel booking confirmation & prompt useful reply to her queries about walking direction from the airport by the hostel staffJust a 🔟mins walking 🚶🏻‍♀️🚶🏻‍♂️ distance (approximately 700m) from the airport ✈️🛫🛬

Ohh…It’s also nearby the Bangkok train 🚂🛤 station, right opposite the airport ✈️🛫🛬 with a connecting bridge 🌉

Photo 23-06-2018, 5 06 50 PM.jpg

Actually this hostel 🏡 also will be extremely favourable 👍🏻 to backpackers / travellers 🎒💼with late airport/ train arrival 🌃🌌 Most of the time, cheaper fare for late night, midnight / early morning flights 🛫🛬Hmm…She has booked a bed 🛏 & stay for a night 🌃🌌 recently in a mixed dorm. She has a late arrival 🛬 to Bangkok 🇹🇭 & she needed to check-in for a connecting flight 🛫 the next day to Nakhon Phanom province from the same airport ✈️

Initially she had a thought of having an overnight 😴💤 at the airport ✈️🛫🛬 (not her 1️⃣st time as a travel lover ❤️). Then, she got this recommendation from 🌐 Booking.com, it’s within short walking 🚶🏻‍♀️🚶🏻‍♂️ distance & cheap ☺️ So, why not❓⁉️✅Moreover, no ❌ credit card 💳 details required for booking & free 🆓 cancellation with an informed dateline 🗓🕛 upon your booking confirmation✅ Awesome‼️😀

Photo 23-06-2018, 5 08 54 PM.jpg

Safe to walk 🚶🏻‍♀️at night 🌃🌌 from airport ✈️🛩❓⁉️

Sure, it’s actually pretty near after the direct connecting bridge / skywalk 🌉 from the airport ✈️🛫🛬

Anyway, safe precaution still require wherever & whenever we are. She walked 🚶🏻‍♀️slight quickly & be extra careful too. She was lucky 🍀 that the streets still busy & with bright lighting💡, there were many local residents around too👫👭👬 So she is not 💯% alone ✌🏻👌🏻

Yeah!! She 👩🏻 is blessed to enjoy the ‘Pestle/ Stick Dance” aka “Saek-Ten-Saak “ performed by the Tai Saek ethnic group. It’s performed annually on the Tai Saek village ancestor worship day i.e. on the 2⃣nd day of waxing moon of the 3️⃣rd lunar month to please the spirit. She was told that if this dance requires to be performed for other timing/ period, the village spiritual leader will have to ask for permission by offering a pig’s head, 2⃣️0️⃣️️-Thai baht cash 💰 & liquor 🥃, then pick up a predictive coloured stick. If the village spiritual leader has picked up a stick of the same colour, it means the spirit does not 🈲 allow for the request

The dancers will perform to the fast rhythm of drums & striking pestles painted in both red & white colours 😃😁
