    Amphawa market

    May 25, 2019 in Thailand ⋅ 🌧 90 °F

    One of the famous night markets is Amphawa market. Even though it was drizzling, it was nice to walk around this area. Here the locals sit on the steps or on boat restaurants and enjoy Thai dishes. You can find great souvenirs at fair prices too!Read more

    Fishing village

    May 25, 2019 in Thailand ⋅ ⛅ 93 °F

    We visited a fishing community to learn about oyster farming. Here you see part of the village...about 15 minutes by boat to the oysters. Baby oysters are cemented to cables where they will grow. But they won’t produce pearls in this habitat.Read more

    Floating market

    May 25, 2019 in Thailand ⋅ ⛅ 93 °F

    The floating market is one of the highlights. This particular market became known after it appeared in a James Bond movie. While it is now geared to tourists, you can look past that to see what life and trade would have been like before the area was discovered.Read more

    We have left Bangkok heading west. Along the way, we stopped at a salt farm, where salt for eating and salt for skin scrubs is sold. We purchased scrubbing salts and we will but the other ingredients to prepare our own concoction.Read more

    Mae Klong Railway Market

    January 20, 2019 in Thailand ⋅ ⛅ 32 °C

    We returned to Bangkok for the third time since we started our trip around the world. Actually Bangkok isn't a city we like really much, but it is a kind of transportation hub for us. This time we need to wait some days for the next cheap flight to the south.

    As the city is too busy we started on a trip to Mae Klong, a small town around 80km south of Bangkok. It is famous for its Railway market. Almost the whole market is taking place on the tracks of the railway. It is really funny to see! Of course we took the train from Bangkok to go to the market even though there was no direct train. We needed to take two different and slow local trains and one ferry boat to reach Mae Klong.

    Und schon sind wir wieder zurück in Bangkok. Insgesamt schon zum dritten Mal seitdem wir Asien bereisen und das obwohl die Stadt an sich definitiv nicht zu unseren Lieblingsorten gehört. Die Stadt ist einfach viel zu groß und der öffentliche Verkehr viel zu schlecht ausgebaut. Aber Bangkok ist einfach das Rom von Südostasien: Alle Wege führen nach Bangkok! Dieses Mal sind es drei Tage die wir hier bleiben bis zu unserem Weiterflug in den Süden von Thailand.

    Zum Glück gibt es noch ein paar Dinge die wir uns in den Vororten von Bangkok eh noch ansehen wollten. Angefangen haben wir mit dem Mae Klong Railway Market. Es ist ein Markt mitten auf den Schienen von einer lokalen Eisenbahnlinie. Nur während den paar Minuten während der Zug durch den Markt fährt ruht der Markt, aber bereits Sekunden nachdem der Zug die Stände passiert hat sind die Stände wieder aufgebaut. Ein sehr lustiges Spektakel zudem wir natürlich mit dem Zug gefahren sind. Es gibt von Bangkok keinen direkten Zug bis nach Mae Klong und so mussten wir um umzusteigen kurz mit einer Fähre einen Fluss überqueren bevor wir nach ca. 2,5 Stunden mit dem Zug über den Markt gefahren sind.

    Amphawa Floating Market

    January 20, 2019 in Thailand ⋅ ⛅ 34 °C

    From the Railway Market we continued to the Amphawa Floating Market. In former days the whole market took place on the water, but nowadays it is more a riverside market. It was nice walking around there but for sure not a must see!

    Bin Railway Market hing es dann direkt weiter zum Amphawa Floating Market. Früher fand der Markt hier größtenteils auf dem Wasser von Boot zu Boot statt, doch heute ist es leider nur noch eine Touristenattraktion mit sehr wenigen Booten. Es ist wohl eher nur noch ein Markt am Ufer eines Flusses, dennoch war es ganz nett ein bisschen herumzulaufen und hier einen Kaffee zu trinken. Fazit: Kann man mal vorbei sehen wenn man in der Nähe ist, aber es ist bestimmt keine Pflicht.

    Samut Songkhram

    August 8, 2007 in Thailand ⋅ 🌙 22 °C

    A drive out of Bangkok to the village of Samut Songkhram, where we browsed through the food stalls and tried to converse with the locals :)
    Surprise! All of a sudden the market stall owners moved their wares around, and a train came through the middle of the markets!
    Neat!

    Landed in Thailand and off to Amphawa

    June 16, 2019 in Thailand ⋅ ☁️ 34 °C

    Neither of us got much sleep during the 14 hour flight to Thailand, landed around 6am local time, and got changed into summer clothes. Put our cases into storage and headed out to meet Gary and Kung for our Thai adventure. Met up with Seven and Bua as well, and headed off to find Mr Chu, our driver for the next few days.
    We drove down to the 3-headed Elephant temple, which was also a museum.
    Then off to the market at Amphawa where the train goes right over the market stalls, a bizarre experience.
    Next, off to a temple that had been overtaken by a Banyan tree, followed by a walk thru an afternoon market, before checking into our cabins on the canal for the next two nights.
