    Chao Phraya River

    My purpose for this trip was to see Phra Samut Chedi. I took a ferry from Paknam ferry for only 3.50THB and the trip took about 10 minutes to Phra Samut Chedi pier. For round trip, you can see different side of the river. The scenery of river, island and mangrove forest 're very nice esp. sunset time. This is an easy way to find a beautiful shot in Samut Prakarn.

    I took a bus from BTS Bearing and hop local bus to Paknam area. Then walked to pier in the Paknam market. Took a ferry for 3.50THB to Phra Samut Chedi pier. The cruise takes about 10 mins with great scenery of Chao Phraya river and green island. From pier, I walked to the temple, just noticed a big Chedi as landmark of this area. The Chedi 's also the symbol of Samut Prakarn province. Originally, this area used to be an island where have outstanding Chedi. Later, the land can connected by the changing of water way. The Chedi was built in King Rama IV as a landmark for sea transportation. The temple was built 130 years later.

    Ancient City,Samut Prakan

    by pattayaraj Written Sep 19, 2003
    Floating market

    The Ancient City , Muang Boran in Thai. The place where can touch all important cultural and historical places in Thailand for only 1 day.
    There’re a numerous reproductions of pavillions , temples, stupas , stone sanctuaries , traditional houses, villages and markets. Some buildings ‘ve moved from the old place and reconstructed here. Presented an area as a map of Thailand show where the places situated , I think it’s a good place for understanding Thailand in a short time.
    Also there’re some sculptures depicted about Thai beliefs,legends and folklores with a greenery scence. Good place for relaxing also.

    Bicycle renting ‘s available.
    Open everyday 8.00am – 5.00pm
    How to go there :
    By bus: take air con bus no.511 to the end of line at Paknam ,then take mini bus no.36 . It pass the entrance of the anceient city.
    By car : take the express way to Samrong –Samut Prakan . Turn left to the old Sukhumvit road , the Ancient city ‘s on the left at Km.33.

    Crocodile Farm!

    by voyageur2 Written May 26, 2003
    Crocodile Show

    I am seriously impressed from Crocodile Farm and shows in Samutprakan. It is not far from Bangkok. Guys play with crocodiles like toys and visitors enjoy visiting a reptile heaven that hundreds of crocodiles live. never forget your cameras when going there because words can not explain those moments.
