I have a busy day yesterday. Too many photos to download and undecided on which photos to be uploaded. It was a great trip so far as I seen and learnt many things visiting Bangkok. Different lifestyle, different food and culture. Lives are simple and people is practically shy and friendly.
We chartered a day guide cum driver to bring us around yesterday. THB3000 total to go to floating market and Ayutthaya. We started our journey at 820am (local time) and reached the boat jetty around 10.00am. We paid THB5000 for the private boat to bring us to the floating market and souvenir shop.
We went to Damnoensaduak Floating Market which took us about an hour boat ride, but along the way we stopped by the souvenir and coconut shop and a Buddhist temple.
Some shots of the market
Our boat and wooden houses along the canal
Stalls on both sides of the canal where sellers calling to tourists to buy their stuff
Souvenir and coconut candy shop
Beautiful temple where you can feed the fishes for free and buy souvenir for good luck
We also gone for the elephant ride which included in the package. So, my very first personal ride on the big animal. About 30 minutes ride. Felt funny riding and looking down on elephant if you asked me.
Ooops. Does it hurt when I stepped on you, Ms Elly??
We buy a lot of souvenirs and photographs yesterday. Once on holiday, you could not run away from not buying your holiday photographs and souvenirs right???
