Trip to Samut Sakhon for the Seafood Festival

TRAVEL DATE: 5 March 2016
DESTINATION: Samut Sakhon Province

Samut Sakhon is well-known as a fishing port and is the center of fresh seafood. Every year during March, the local government organize a Seafood Festival. The city is only an hour’s drive from Bangkok and is an easy day trip. I drove down there to explore some of its main attractions before visiting the seafood festival at the end of the day. During the trip, I tweeted live on @RichardBarrow. Click here to see those pictures and reports.

The following map shows the places that I visited during the trip:
