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

SiennyLovesDrawing 👩🏻 would like to sharing 👩🏻‍💻📝 about her 2018 year end travelling ğŸŽ’ğŸ•¶ğŸ‘ŸğŸ§¢ with Take Me Tour, Thailand 🇹🇭

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

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

Before she 👩🏻 has decided on this tour, she 👩🏻 has read 📖 about the local expert of this said tour named Khun Hansa 🙋🏻‍♀️ who has introduced herself as a wanderer in this small village & then become a close friend to many villagers 👫👭👬

TH4.JPG

During the tour, SiennyLovesDrawing 👩🏻 has observed that Khun Hansa 🙋🏻‍♀️ really having a great 👍🏻 relationship with the villagers 👭👬👫 & communicating well 🗣👥👤👥 with them. Definitely a strong healthy bonding 👍🏻🤝 & friendship being built, bravo 👏🏻🙌🏻 to her 🙋🏻‍♀️‼️

She 👩🏻 also truly believes that Khun Hansa 🙋🏻‍♀️has chosen ✅ to lead this day tour to introduce to all guests 👬👭👫 about this small village in a less travelled  province ~ Samut Sakhon, Thailand 🇹🇭 i.e. from the salt water 💦💧 gate, mangrove forest 🌳🌳 , salt farm, home made seafoods 🍽🍴🦀🦐🐟 etc.

Khun Hansa 🙋🏻‍♀️ also aims to help to boost ⬆️ the economy of this small village & increase ⬆️ the earning power 💰 of the villagers 👭👫👬 here especially during the raining ☔️🌧 season where most of the salt farmers here will be experiencing the low ⬇️ salt harvesting

Hmm…How’s this day tour thoughout❓⁉️

She 👩🏻 woke up early that morning 🔅🔆 & went for a local Thai “bak kut teh” breakfast 😋🤤 , a non-halal dish ~ herb pork 🐖🐷🐽 soup 🍲🥣 served with rice 🍛😋🤤 It’s just a stall outside of a local Thai 🇹🇭👫‘s home 🏠🏡 & within walking 🚶🏻‍♀️ distance from her hotel 🏢 named Bangkok Loft Inn

After breakfast 🍽🍴😋🤤, she 👩🏻 then proceeded 🚶🏻‍♀️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 1️⃣ hour early from meet up @ 9️⃣am to meet up with Khun Hansa 🙋🏻‍♀️ 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 nice 👍🏻 morning 🔅🔆 view with river 💦💧, long boat 🛶 & wat ⛩ from the BTS station 🚇 during her wait for the meet up 👩🏻🙋🏻‍♀️

Hmm…She 👩🏻 was a bit lazy, else she would have walk🚶🏻‍♀️to visit this wat  ⛩ nearby that morning 🔅🔆 Instead she 👩🏻 seated down in the BTS station 🚉 & then logged in to her social medias 📱 & catching up with her friends & family members 👫👭👬 with her new 🆕  Thai simcard named DTAC , more details via 🌐 https://www.dtac.co.th/en/move-to-dtac/

Khun Hansa 🙋🏻‍♀️ was early to arrive too, so both 👩🏻🙋🏻‍♀️ then started this day tour slightly early that the scheduled time of 9️⃣am

Khun Hansa 🙋🏻‍♀️ is so friendly & shares the same travel passion as SiennyLovesDrawing 👩🏻, hence lots of common interest to chit chat 🗣👤 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 👍🏻 meet & catch up with a travel lover during travel journeys 😁

As you have reading 📖 her earlier blogging 👩🏻‍💻📝 here, she 👩🏻 has visited plenty of mangrove parks 🌳🌳 in her home country ~ Malaysia 🇲🇾

However, this is SiennyLovesDrawing 👩🏻‘s 1️⃣st visit to a Thailand 🇹🇭‘s natural coastal mangrove forest 🌳🌳, a home to a wide variety of birds 🦅🐦 & mudskippers 🐟🐟 & along the Gulf of Thailand 🌊🇹🇭

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 😌☺️

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 ğŸŽğŸŽ‹ border project to avoid further water 💦💧 & soil erosion to this forest 🌳🌳 etc.

These eco 💚💚 sustainable initiatives aim to buidling the bamboo borders ğŸŽğŸŽ‹ within the mangrove forest 🌳🌳 were observed by SiennyLovesDrawing 👩🏻 during her visit to protect the mangroves 🌳 being sapling from the sea waves 🌊 ‘ destruction, then soil erosion 😧😲🙃

Khun Hansa 🙋🏻‍♀️ also into eco tourism 💚 & a green person as SiennyLovesDrawing 👩🏻, so they have more conversational topics 🗣👤 Ha…Ha…it’s rare to meet a new friend 🙋🏻‍♀️ with similar travel & conservation passionate 😉

She 👩🏻 has shared a recent sad 😔 news ğŸ—žğŸ“° of the high ⬆️ potential of the de-gazette ❌ of Pulau Kukup Johor National Park 🌴 to Khun Hansa 🙋🏻‍♀️ during this day tour, you may check out this said dissappointing 😔 online newsÂ ğŸ‘©ğŸ»â€ğŸ’»ğŸ‘¨ğŸ»â€ğŸ’»ğŸ—žğŸ“°Â via 🌐https://www.thestar.com.my/news/nation/2018/12/05/why-did-johor-quietly-degazette-pulau-kukup-national-park-asks-lawyers/

Special thank you 🙏🏻 for the beautiful 😍 photos 📸 of SiennyLovesDrawing 👩🏻 during this mangrove forest 🌳🌳 walk🚶🏻‍♀️ya 🤗

IMG_0238.jpg

She 👩🏻 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 👩🏻 has proceeded to visit the salt farm 😃

Yes ✅, the highlight ✨of this tour & she 👩🏻 has been long awaited for. Hmm….Why❓⁉️

This is because she 👩🏻 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 ğŸŽ‰ğŸŽŠ , so SiennyLovesDrawing 👩🏻 was forced to cancel ❌ the Kampot visit plan, hence no ❌ chance to have her 1️⃣st visit to a salt farm 😌😔

Everything happens for a reason, then this Take Me Tour booking 👩🏻‍💻🛒✅ has now fulfilled 🆒🆗 her wish to visit a salt farm, so happy 😃‼️

Salt farming is seasonal & visiting during the dry season between January to April would capture the best view 👍🏻😍

Sea water 💦💧 is 1️⃣st being pumping into the farms.  Then, the sea water 💦💧will be evaporated over a period of time, the layers of salt will be manually collected by the salt farmers 👫👭👬

She 👩🏻 has met with the salt farmers 👬👭👫’ family, learnt & discovered how the salt formed & also enjoy a home cooked lunch 🍽🍴with the top 👆🏻notch salt & fresh seafood 🦀🦐🐟 served from the salt farm to table 😋🤤

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

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 ğŸŽ’ğŸ•¶ğŸ§¢ğŸ‘Ÿ

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 ğŸ’Ž 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 ğŸŽ£, 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 ğŸ¤©ğŸ˜Ž

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 🤣😆
