Thetraveljunkie.org – Hello! This time we were on the Mae Klong river, Amphawa region – Samut Songkhram. It’s the region famous for it’s palm sugars and Thai traditional lifestyle.
I enjoyed the privilege of a water taxi transfer from a local restaurant to a home producing palm sugar, compliments of Discover Thainess and I love wooden-boats so very much, there couldn’t have been a better introduction to Samut Songkhram for me.
I learned the local lifestyle along the waterways — that this is the most luxury way to get around and a most unnecessary expense.
Still, the joy it brings when I sit in the back, with the wind in my hair and the sun overhead, the gorgeous architecture on either side.
It was so peaceful and beautiful! The colours of the trees were singing out with life in the soft forest light.
Simple holiday pleasures are definitely the best!
Happy Sustainable Travels!
