Samut Sakhon ~ Hidden gem in Thailand πŸ‡ΉπŸ‡­

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

SiennyLovesDrawing πŸ‘©πŸ»Β would like to sharing πŸ‘©πŸ»β€πŸ’»πŸ“ about her 2018 year end travelling πŸŽ’πŸ•ΆπŸ‘ŸπŸ§’ with Take Me Tour, Thailand πŸ‡ΉπŸ‡­

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

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

Actually not just a wide variety of day tours, Take Me Tour also providing private car πŸš—πŸš™ airport transfer ✈️, SiennyLovesDrawing πŸ‘©πŸ» has booked πŸ‘©πŸ»β€πŸ’»πŸ›’βœ… for a few & really impressed πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ€© with its reliable, safe & comfy ride πŸš—πŸš™ to/ from Don MueangΒ International Airport ✈️

Do consider for your convenience especially with night πŸŒƒπŸŒŒπŸ›¬ arrival ya

Before she πŸ‘©πŸ» has decided on this tour, she πŸ‘©πŸ» has read πŸ“– about the local expert of this said tour named Khun Hansa πŸ™‹πŸ»β€β™€οΈΒ who has introduced herself as a wanderer in this small village & then become a close friend to many villagers πŸ‘«πŸ‘­πŸ‘¬

TH4.JPG

During the tour, SiennyLovesDrawing πŸ‘©πŸ» has observed that Khun Hansa πŸ™‹πŸ»β€β™€οΈΒ really having a great πŸ‘πŸ» relationship with the villagers πŸ‘­πŸ‘¬πŸ‘« & communicating well πŸ—£πŸ‘₯πŸ‘€πŸ‘₯ with them. Definitely a strong healthy bonding πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ€ & friendship being built, bravo πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ™ŒπŸ» to her πŸ™‹πŸ»β€β™€οΈβ€ΌοΈ

She πŸ‘©πŸ» also truly believes that Khun Hansa πŸ™‹πŸ»β€β™€οΈhas chosen βœ… to lead this day tour to introduce to all guests πŸ‘¬πŸ‘­πŸ‘« about this small village in a less travelledΒ  province ~ Samut Sakhon, Thailand πŸ‡ΉπŸ‡­ i.e. from the salt water πŸ’¦πŸ’§ gate, mangrove forest 🌳🌳 , salt farm, home made seafoods πŸ½πŸ΄πŸ¦€πŸ¦πŸŸ etc.

Khun Hansa πŸ™‹πŸ»β€β™€οΈΒ also aims to help to boost ⬆️ the economy of this small village & increase ⬆️ the earning power πŸ’° of the villagers πŸ‘­πŸ‘«πŸ‘¬ here especially during the raining β˜”οΈπŸŒ§ season where most of the salt farmers here will be experiencing the low ⬇️ salt harvesting

Hmm…How’s this day tour thoughout❓⁉️

She πŸ‘©πŸ» woke up early that morning πŸ”…πŸ”† & went for a local Thai “bak kut teh” breakfast πŸ˜‹πŸ€€ , a non-halal dish ~ herb pork πŸ–πŸ·πŸ½ soup 🍲πŸ₯£ served with riceΒ πŸ›πŸ˜‹πŸ€€ It’s just a stall outside of a local Thai πŸ‡ΉπŸ‡­πŸ‘«‘s home 🏠🏑 & within walking πŸšΆπŸ»β€β™€οΈ distance fromΒ her hotel 🏒 namedΒ Bangkok Loft InnΒ 

This hotel 🏒 is located atπŸ“55 Somdet Phra Chao Taksin Rd., Bangyeerua, Thonburi, Bangkok 10600, Thailand πŸ‡ΉπŸ‡­ A nice πŸ‘πŸ» comfy stay πŸ›ŒπŸšΏπŸš½with its strategic locationπŸ“ i.e. 5️⃣mins walking πŸšΆπŸ»β€β™€οΈ distance to the Wongwian Yai BTS skytrain station πŸš‰, very convenient πŸ†—πŸ†’ More details for your hotel booking πŸ‘©πŸ»β€πŸ’»πŸ‘¨πŸ»β€πŸ’»πŸ›’ via 🌐 http://www.bangkokloftinn.com/Β 

After breakfast πŸ½πŸ΄πŸ˜‹πŸ€€, she πŸ‘©πŸ» then proceeded πŸšΆπŸ»β€β™€οΈto take the BTS skytrain 🚊 from Wongwian Yai station πŸš‰Β Oppsss…Too early arrival πŸ”…πŸ”† atΒ BTS stationΒ named Wutthakat πŸš‰, not because of the time difference ya…

Yesβœ…, she was about 1️⃣ hour early from meet up @ 9️⃣am to meet up with Khun HansaΒ πŸ™‹πŸ»β€β™€οΈΒ as stated in her Take Me Tour booking πŸ“Œ Just too excited πŸ˜† for the day tour, Ha…Ha…Don’t laugh πŸ˜†πŸ˜‚ at her ya

Yeah‼️ A very niceΒ πŸ‘πŸ»Β morningΒ πŸ”…πŸ”†Β view with riverΒ πŸ’¦πŸ’§, long boatΒ πŸ›ΆΒ & watΒ β›©Β from the BTS stationΒ πŸš‡Β during her wait for the meet up πŸ‘©πŸ»πŸ™‹πŸ»β€β™€οΈ

Hmm…She πŸ‘©πŸ» was a bit lazy, else she would have walkπŸšΆπŸ»β€β™€οΈto visit this wat Β β›©Β nearby that morning πŸ”…πŸ”† Instead she πŸ‘©πŸ» seated down in the BTS station πŸš‰ & then logged in to her social medias πŸ“± & catching up with her friends & family members πŸ‘«πŸ‘­πŸ‘¬Β with her new πŸ†• Β Thai simcard named DTAC , more details via 🌐 http://www.dtac.co.th/en/home.html

Khun Hansa πŸ™‹πŸ»β€β™€οΈΒ was early to arrive too, so both πŸ‘©πŸ»πŸ™‹πŸ»β€β™€οΈ then started this day tour slightly early that the scheduled time of 9️⃣am

Khun Hansa πŸ™‹πŸ»β€β™€οΈΒ is so friendly & shares the same travel passion as SiennyLovesDrawing πŸ‘©πŸ», hence lots of common interest to chit chat πŸ—£πŸ‘€ about during their approximately 30mins journey πŸš™ to Samut Sakhon province, also known by the locals as “Maha Chai” πŸ˜€

Both happily πŸ˜ƒ exchanged lots of respective travel stories, always a nice πŸ‘πŸ» meet & catch up with a travel lover during travel journeys 😁

As you have reading πŸ“– her earlier blogging πŸ‘©πŸ»β€πŸ’»πŸ“ here, she πŸ‘©πŸ» has visited plenty of mangrove parks 🌳🌳 in her home country ~ Malaysia πŸ‡²πŸ‡Ύ

However, this is SiennyLovesDrawing πŸ‘©πŸ»‘s 1️⃣st visit to a Thailand πŸ‡ΉπŸ‡­‘s natural coastal mangrove forest 🌳🌳,Β a home to a wide variety of birds πŸ¦…πŸ¦ & mudskippers 🐟🐟 & along the Gulf of Thailand πŸŒŠπŸ‡ΉπŸ‡­

Oppsss…The mudskippers 🐟🐟 here are fat & huge, it was high tides 🌊 during her visit, so not able ❌ to note the colourful Hermit crabs πŸšπŸ¦€crawling on the muddy field 😌☺️

Not to missed a visit to its mini museum / perhaps more to a conservation project centre πŸ’šπŸ’š with a collection of whale πŸ‹πŸ³ skeletons, details about some small animals lived in this forest 🌳🌳 before as well asΒ some its on-going marine conservation initiatives πŸŒŠπŸ’šπŸ’š here i.e. mangrove trees planting 🌳🌳, a bamboo πŸŽπŸŽ‹ border project to avoid further water πŸ’¦πŸ’§ & soil erosion to this forest 🌳🌳 etc.

These eco πŸ’šπŸ’š sustainable initiatives aim to buidling the bamboo borders πŸŽπŸŽ‹ within the mangrove forest 🌳🌳 were observed by SiennyLovesDrawing πŸ‘©πŸ» during her visit to protect the mangroves 🌳 being sapling from the sea waves 🌊 ‘ destruction, then soil erosion πŸ˜§πŸ˜²πŸ™ƒ

Khun Hansa πŸ™‹πŸ»β€β™€οΈΒ also into eco tourism πŸ’š & a green person as SiennyLovesDrawing πŸ‘©πŸ»,Β so they have more conversational topics πŸ—£πŸ‘€ Ha…Ha…it’s rare to meet a new friend πŸ™‹πŸ»β€β™€οΈ with similar travel & conservation passionate πŸ˜‰

She πŸ‘©πŸ» has shared a recent sad πŸ˜” news πŸ—žπŸ“° of the high ⬆️ potential of the de-gazette ❌ of Pulau Kukup Johor National Park 🌴 to Khun Hansa πŸ™‹πŸ»β€β™€οΈ during this day tour, you may check out this said dissappointingΒ πŸ˜”Β online newsΒ πŸ‘©πŸ»β€πŸ’»πŸ‘¨πŸ»β€πŸ’»πŸ—žπŸ“°Β 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 πŸ™‹πŸ»β€β™€οΈnot just a great πŸ‘πŸ» local expert in sharing her knowledge about this village, she is also a great photographer πŸ“Έ

Special thank you πŸ™πŸ» for theΒ beautiful 😍 photos πŸ“Έ of SiennyLovesDrawing πŸ‘©πŸ» during this mangrove forest 🌳🌳 walkπŸšΆπŸ»β€β™€οΈya πŸ€—

Next, Khun Hansa πŸ™‹πŸ»β€β™€οΈΒ also brought her to a local cafe πŸ½β˜•οΈΒ (Hmm…In Thai name which SiennyLovesDrawing is unable to share the name, refer photo below for the cafe details) by her friend named Joy πŸ’πŸ»β€β™€οΈ & her adorable shy daughter named Minnie πŸ‘§πŸ» It was a pleasure to meet them & had a quick chit chat about Joy πŸ’πŸ»β€β™€οΈ’s recent visit to her orchard plantation 🌱🌿 in Central of Thailand πŸ‡ΉπŸ‡­ , she plants 🌱🌿 for macadomia nuts πŸ₯œ , coffee trees β˜•οΈπŸŒ³, pineapples 🍍 etc. Love πŸ’— all the photos πŸ“ΈπŸ“± shared by Joy πŸ’πŸ»β€β™€οΈ, you will definitely note her passion in plantations πŸ’—πŸŒ±πŸŒΏ

This cafe πŸ½β˜•οΈ is locatedπŸ“next to a river πŸ’¦πŸ’§, it’s really relaxing 😌 to dine 🍽 here to enjoy πŸ˜‹πŸ€€ the canal view. She πŸ‘©πŸ» had a Thai tea ice stick β˜•οΈπŸ¦as well as try stir fried fresh vegetables πŸ₯— planted by Joy πŸ’πŸ»β€β™€οΈ with sardines 🐟, yummy delicious πŸ˜‹πŸ€€β€ΌοΈ

IMG_0238.jpg

She πŸ‘©πŸ» has observed during the car πŸš™ journey towards the salt farm that some of the farmers πŸ‘¬πŸ‘¬πŸ‘¬ here busy hand picking cockles 🐚 in the farms πŸ˜„

Yeah‼️ Next, she πŸ‘©πŸ» has proceeded to visit the salt farm πŸ˜ƒ

Yes βœ…, the highlight ✨of this tour & she πŸ‘©πŸ» has been long awaited for. Hmm….Why❓⁉️

This is because she πŸ‘©πŸ» wanted to visit salt farm in Kampot village, Cambodia πŸ‡°πŸ‡­ during her Phnom Penh trip in Nov. However, due to a last mins plan, no ❌ hotel available 🏒 as it was the annual water πŸ’¦πŸ’§ festival celebration πŸŽ‰πŸŽŠ , so SiennyLovesDrawing πŸ‘©πŸ» was forced to cancel ❌ the Kampot visit plan, hence no ❌ chance to have her 1️⃣st visit to a salt farm πŸ˜ŒπŸ˜”

Everything happens for a reason, then this Take Me Tour booking πŸ‘©πŸ»β€πŸ’»πŸ›’βœ… has now fulfilled πŸ†’πŸ†— her wish to visit a salt farm, so happy πŸ˜ƒβ€ΌοΈ

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

This resort πŸ’πŸ›ŒπŸšΏπŸš½πŸ’¦πŸ’§ is not new, in fact it’s with quite a number of years since establishment. However, this recent visit & stay vacation was the 1️⃣st experience of her πŸ‘©πŸ»

IMG_9068.JPG

It’s surrounding with the Malaysia πŸ‡²πŸ‡Ύ ‘s largest manmade freshwater lake πŸ’¦πŸ’§ (7️⃣k acres) named Bukit Merah πŸžπŸ’¦πŸ’§ & approximately 3️⃣-hour drive 🚐 from Kuala Lumpur city & through Bukit Merah toll Exit 150 along the North-South Expressway πŸ›£

Room

After buffet lunch 🍽🍴@ Lelac Cafe, she πŸ‘©πŸ» went to check-in πŸ” with her media friend πŸ‘­to a standard hotel room πŸ›ŒπŸšΏπŸš½

A simple, clean yet comfy stay with toiletries available. There is no ❌ iron / hair dryer available in the hotel room πŸ›Œ

However, no wifi βŒπŸ“Ά network detection in the hotel room, though the wifi password was printed on the hotel room key πŸ”‘ ‘s envelope 😌

Frankly, the hotel rooms are considered quite well maintained πŸ‘ŒπŸ» since it’s an old resort since its establishment in 1995. More of its hotel room types & room information via 🌐 http://www.bukitmerahresort.com.my/laketown-hotel

Yeah‼️ SiennyLovesDrawingΒ πŸ‘©πŸ»Β is gonna sharing πŸ‘©πŸ»β€πŸ’»πŸ“ here about her impressive 🀩 & unforgettable experience gained from the annualΒ CambodianΒ πŸ‡°πŸ‡­ Water πŸ’¦πŸ’§ Festival πŸŽ‰πŸŽŠ, Phnom Penh, Cambodia πŸ‡°πŸ‡­

So, it was all started withΒ a short queue to get her πŸ‘©πŸ» cheap ⬇️ flight ticket ✈️ during the AirAsia BIG Xchange & BIG Fest event ❀️ in Sept (as shown in the short clip πŸ“ΉπŸŽ₯below). It was with only a limited choice of destinationsπŸ“πŸ“available

She πŸ‘©πŸ» has chosen βœ… for Phnom PenhΒ πŸ‡°πŸ‡­ under Lane B with a very 1️⃣st intention to meet & visit 1️⃣ of her girlfriend πŸ™‹πŸ»β€β™€οΈ who is working there as an expatriate currently. However, sadly 😟 that her friend πŸ™‹πŸ»β€β™€οΈ wasn’t around ❌ Phnom Penh πŸ‡°πŸ‡­ during her travel dates πŸ—“ Sigh…From a friend visitπŸ‘­, then she had it as 1️⃣ of her annual solo travelsss πŸŽ’πŸ§’πŸ•ΆπŸ‘Ÿ

πŸ’— ~ Everything Happens For A Reason ~ πŸ’—

Also initially she πŸ‘©πŸ» did plan to let go this solo trip because of a clash to a tourism event ~ MITA Sarawak, Malaysia πŸ‡²πŸ‡Ύ that she πŸ‘©πŸ» has always supporting πŸ’ͺ🏻✌🏻the tourism authority 😊 in Malaysia πŸ‡²πŸ‡ΎοΈ

Guess what❓⁉️

This biggest celebrationΒ marks a 12th century naval victory with boat πŸš£πŸ»β€β™€οΈπŸš£πŸ»β€β™‚οΈ racing along the Sisowath Quay πŸ’¦πŸ’§ with the boat πŸš£πŸ»β€β™€οΈπŸš£πŸ»β€β™‚οΈ racing on the Tonle Sap River, in particular the area stretching from street 104 to street 178 of Phnom Penh city centre πŸ‡°πŸ‡­

In the morning πŸ”…πŸ”† & before the race πŸš£πŸ»β€β™‚οΈπŸš£πŸ»β€β™€οΈ starts during this 3️⃣-day festival πŸŽ‰πŸŽ€, the riverside & streets were much more peaceful 😌

Once the race starts around πŸ”Ÿam, the huge crowd πŸ‘­πŸ‘¬πŸ‘« at the riverside will be observed πŸ˜ƒπŸ‘πŸ»πŸ™ŒπŸ»

However, in 2015 this celebration πŸŽ‰πŸŽŠ was cancelled ❌ due to the low ⬇️ water level πŸ’¦πŸ’§

Hurray‼️ She πŸ‘©πŸ» always wanna appreciating & experiencing a country’s tradition culture during her travels βœˆοΈπŸŽ’πŸ•ΆπŸ§’πŸ‘ŸΒ This is just so a lovely πŸ’“ coincidenceΒ πŸ˜‰

So, what’s this water πŸ’¦πŸ’§ festival πŸŽŠπŸŽ‰ all about❓⁉️

It’s a 3️⃣ days non-religious celebration πŸŽ‰πŸŽŠ & symbolised as an ancient appreciation πŸ™πŸ» for centuries to the river πŸ’¦πŸ’§for providing a source of livelihood to the farmers πŸ‘¨πŸ»β€πŸŒΎπŸ‘©πŸ»β€πŸŒΎ & fishermen 🐟🎣

Hmm…It’s a kind of local Khmers πŸ‡°πŸ‡­πŸ‘«πŸ‘­πŸ‘¬ thanksgiving πŸ™ celebration πŸŽ‰πŸŽŠ

The Cambodian boat crews πŸ‡°πŸ‡­πŸš£πŸ»β€β™€οΈπŸš£πŸ»β€β™‚οΈ were face forward. Many of the boat crews πŸš£πŸ»β€β™€οΈπŸš£πŸ»β€β™‚οΈ were complemented with a colorfully-costumed lady πŸ’πŸ»β€β™€οΈat the prow dancing to the beat of the drums πŸ₯πŸ₯

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

For the 1️⃣st 2️⃣ days, races πŸš£πŸ»β€β™€οΈπŸš£πŸ»β€β™‚οΈ are run with 2️⃣ boats πŸ›ΆπŸ›Ά each, with the big race πŸš£πŸ»β€β™‚οΈπŸš£πŸ»β€β™‚οΈ happening on the last day, when all the boats πŸ›ΆπŸ›Ά take to the river πŸ’¦πŸ’§ to compete πŸ˜ƒ

There were carnival, rides, traditional music 🎼🎢🎡 performances, dances πŸ’ƒπŸ»πŸ•ΊπŸΌπŸ‘―β€β™€οΈπŸ‘―β€β™‚οΈπŸ•΄πŸ»etc. in the evening πŸ™πŸŒƒπŸŒŒ

There were many stall vendors, definitely food πŸ›πŸ²πŸ₯˜πŸ½πŸ΄& drink πŸ₯€πŸ»πŸ·πŸ₯‚πŸΈπŸΉoverflow on the streets, Khmer pop bands 🎼🎹🎧🎢🎡entertaining the crowds πŸ‘­πŸ‘¬πŸ‘« etc.

Personally, she πŸ‘©πŸ» was impressed how the local vendors actually earn their living πŸ’°by selling drinks πŸ₯€& snacks πŸ₯‘🍰πŸ₯§πŸ₯ͺ to the huge crowds πŸ‘­πŸ‘¬πŸ‘« at the riverside during the boat racing πŸš£πŸ»β€β™€οΈπŸš£πŸ»β€β™‚οΈ

There were approximately 300 boats πŸ›ΆπŸ›Ά with 19k pax of boat rowers πŸš£πŸ»β€β™€οΈπŸš£πŸ»β€β™‚οΈ Wow!!

Hmm…πŸ€” How about the huge crowd πŸ‘­πŸ‘«πŸ‘¬attended for this 3️⃣-day festival celebration πŸŽ‰πŸŽŠ in Phnom Penh❓⁉️

IMG_4571.JPG

It was about 4.5million people πŸ‘­πŸ‘¬πŸ‘« 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 πŸ‡°πŸ‡­ has handbuilt the world πŸŒπŸ—Ί ‘s longest rowing boat πŸš£πŸ»β€β™€οΈ at 87.3m long & 1.99m wide with cost of $60k. It was completed successfully πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ™ŒπŸ» in Sept by more than 14k local Khmers πŸ‡°πŸ‡­πŸ‘­πŸ‘¬πŸ‘« in 192 days πŸ˜²πŸ˜ƒ

Guess what❓⁉️

Another Guinness World πŸŒπŸ—Ί Record πŸ† won (It’s the 5️⃣th one) by Cambodia πŸ‡°πŸ‡­ as this long dragon boat πŸš£πŸ»β€β™‚οΈ is capable of carrying 179 boat rowers πŸš£πŸ»β€β™‚οΈπŸš£πŸ»β€β™€οΈ on it‼️ Wowβ€ΌοΈπŸ˜² This great πŸ‘πŸ» news was anounced on 12 Nov at Prey Veng province of Phnom Penh πŸ‡°πŸ‡­

From her own experience, a few points πŸ“ŒπŸ“Œ to note if you’re interested to be at Phnom Penh or Siem Reap for this great πŸ‘πŸ» annual celebration πŸŽŠπŸŽ‰

Ohh ya…A pair of comfy shoes πŸ‘Ÿ is essentials βœ…Β because itΒ was vehicles free πŸ†“Β i.e. No public transport βŒπŸšŒπŸš•πŸš— 🚐 being available to theΒ festival πŸŽ‰πŸŽŠ groundπŸ“, 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 πŸ‘£

Yeah‼️ SiennyLovesDrawing πŸ‘©πŸ» got her sun β˜€οΈπŸŒž protection from theΒ πŸ†•Petal Velvet SunawayΒ SPF50 ordered & purchased πŸ‘©πŸ»β€πŸ’»πŸ›’ fromΒ Althea KoreaΒ πŸ‡°πŸ‡· You must remember to put up your sunscreen to avoid sunburn

Photo 27-11-2018, 12 35 31 PM.jpg

Next, do bring an umbrella πŸŒ‚β˜‚ (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 πŸ‘š to enjoy the boat πŸš£πŸ»β€β™€οΈπŸš£πŸ»β€β™‚οΈ race cheerings with the local Khmers πŸ‡°πŸ‡­πŸ‘­πŸ‘¬πŸ‘« at the riverside under the hot sunny πŸ˜Žβ˜€οΈ day

Ohh ya…Do remember your refillable water πŸ’¦πŸ’§ bottle to avoid dehydration ya 😌

She πŸ‘©πŸ» was with the local Khmers πŸ‡°πŸ‡­πŸ‘«πŸ‘­πŸ‘¬ on her 1️⃣st visit & then 2️⃣nd visit the next day at the designated area by Tourism Cambodia πŸ‡°πŸ‡­ for the foreign tourists πŸ‘¬πŸ‘«πŸ‘­Β (Served with free πŸ†“ flow of drinksπŸ₯€πŸ₯€available)

The riversides πŸ’¦πŸ’§ were extremely packed & crowded πŸ‘¬πŸ‘«πŸ‘­ with both the local Khmers πŸ‡°πŸ‡­πŸ‘«πŸ‘­πŸ‘¬ & foreign tourists to cheering for their favorite ❀️ boatsπŸš£πŸ»β€β™‚οΈπŸš£πŸ»β€β™€οΈ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 πŸ‘­πŸ‘¬πŸ‘«

Why❓⁉️

Hmm…You never know whether you will be being targetted by any pick-pockets/ bag-snatchers πŸ˜ˆπŸ‘Ώ whom may just roaming around the crowded festival πŸŽ‰πŸŽŠ riversides πŸ’¦πŸ’§& streets. So, even thoughΒ this festival πŸŽ‰πŸŽŠ is a free πŸ†“ celebration πŸŽ‰πŸŽŠ , however it can get really expensive if you make a mistake by carrying valuables into the crowds πŸ‘­πŸ‘¬πŸ‘«

Always better be safe then sorry ya β˜ΊοΈπŸ˜‰

There were several types of rowing πŸš£πŸ»β€β™€οΈπŸš£πŸ»β€β™‚οΈ styles observed from her visits, i.e. sitting down & manual rowing, standing up & manual rowing, standing up & auto rowing etc. She πŸ‘©πŸ» is curious πŸ€” how the marks will be allocate within each different styles as well as the determining factors of winning πŸ†πŸŽ– too❓⁉️

Perhaps logically the shortest time πŸ•› of completion from the start till end time of each boat at the finishing line (The 2️⃣ red ❀️ boats πŸš£πŸ»β€β™€οΈπŸš£πŸ»β€β™‚οΈ as captured in the photo πŸ“Έ & vBlog πŸ“ΉπŸŽ₯below)

There were live announcement during the boat racing πŸš£πŸ»β€β™‚οΈπŸš£πŸ»β€β™€οΈ, however in local Khmer πŸ‡°πŸ‡­ 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 🀴🏻, Prime Minister Hun Sen πŸ‘¨πŸ»β€πŸ’Ό& some senior officials πŸ™‹πŸ»β€β™‚οΈπŸ’πŸ»β€β™‚οΈ have all attended the closing ceremony on the last day of this festival πŸŽ‰πŸŽŠ She πŸ‘©πŸ» has observed from the TV screen πŸ“Ί at the foreign visitors designated booth

Ohh ya…She πŸ‘©πŸ» has enjoyed the longest & the pretty 😍🀩 fireworks πŸŽ†πŸŽ‡ so far from the closing ceremony of this water festival πŸŽ‰πŸŽŠ

Really amazing beautiful 😍🀩 & with the boats πŸ›ΆπŸ›Ά decorated with LED lightingπŸ’‘πŸ’‘screens represented by each relevant authorities of organising & managing this water πŸ’¦πŸ’§ festival πŸŽŠπŸŽ‰ e.g. Tourism, Justice, Ministry of Art & Handicrafts etc. to name a few noted πŸ˜‰

This festival πŸŽŠπŸŽ‰ also ended with lots of clean up & tidy up at the riverside by the local Khmers πŸ‡°πŸ‡­πŸ‘¬πŸ‘¬πŸ‘¬

Yeah!! She πŸ‘©πŸ»Β is blessed to enjoy the β€˜Pestle/ Stick Dance” aka “Saek-Ten-SaakΒ “ 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 πŸ’°Β & liquor πŸ₯ƒ, 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 coloursΒ πŸ˜ƒπŸ˜
