My second day in Bangkok.
Woke up at 6am and did my routine exercise such as push up and sit up. Then slowly moved to bathroom, brushed my teeth and took shower. While I was taking shower, I got a phone call. My friend answered it and it was the tour van driver. He was at the hotel at 6.30am! The agency told us last night at 6.45am! Damn it!
Oh yeah, I forgot to tell you which agency we dealt with. It was MamTour. Click here if you want to know more about it. It is the cheapest price you can get. Even the hotel staff was shock with the price we got!
I rushed out of the bathroom and grab some buns and chocolates that I bought at 7 Eleven last night when I walked home from Pat Pong. I ran to the van and he was in hurry. The van driver told us that the agency always gave the wrong information. Hmm, at least he knew it wasn’t our fault.
The van kept moving at the same place like 3 or 4 times. Why? Because some of the tourist that booked the same tour were late! Hate it. I mean, can you be less self-centred? Punctual?
Then, the stick a sticker on our shirts to differentiate the package that we took.
I can’t remember how long the journey was, roughly around 2 hours? Oh yeah, we went out of Bangkok actually. The first venue was Floating Market. I missed the chance when I went to Hadyai last Februari. It was a very short trip. I stayed there only for a night! This time I didn’t want to miss it anymore. I didn’t want to be like some tourist who only come to Bangkok for shopping and sex. Travelling suppose to give us more knowledge about people culture and religion. Respect other human being and be grateful as I could see many poor people struggle with their lives where most of us sighing in the aircond room that we called office.
When we reached there. The tourist guide told us that the boat ride was included in the package but not the traditional wooden boat. So, I paid 150 baht to them and went onto the boat.
Let me share some pictures:
Ok, I hope these pictures can tell you how is the Floating Market looks like. I only saw on TV and magazines before but I have seen with my eyes now. Great experience of course!
Ask, if you have any question? :-)
