Day Trip to the Temple Surrounded by the Sea

Wat Khun Samut Chin

TRAVEL DATE: 15 August 2015
DESTINATION: Samut Prakan Province

On Saturday, I went on a Bangkok day trip to Samut Prakan with my friends Chin from Chili Paste Tours and David Luekens from Travelfish. As this was my backyard, I was the tour guide this time round. Highlights of the tour were Phra Samut Chedi, Phra Chulachomklao Fortress, Ban Sakhla and Wat Khun Samut Chin. Our starting point was Paknam Market where you can catch a boat across the river to Phra Samut Chedi. You can travel to the other destinations by songtaew from the pier, but it is much easier if you have your own car like we did. During the trip I tweeted live on @RichardBarrow.
