Thailand's fishing village - Bang Ta Boon (1)

After a day out at Bangpu watching so many gulls & terns, we drove to another coastal area and ready for more sea birds. We plan to rent a boat & do some birding at the Gulf of Thailand.

We arrived at Bang Ta Boon just after sun-rise.

Our destination is Bang Ta Boon Bay, and it was situated at the mouth of  Petchburi River.
Street Market, Bang Ta Boon
Is Friday and today is the week-end market day. Since we are going to be out in the sea until sun set, we stock up some snacks from the market. It will be great experience to relax with sea breeze, birding & biting snacks away until sun set!

Different from the actual market, this week end market or farm mart is for the residents/farmers to sell their produces directly to the consumers.

  1. I love Kaeng Krachan, I was there a week ago for 5 days, had to cancel it early due to a heavy storm that flooded many places around there;
