Arrive at Samut Songkhram province.
The smallest province in Thailand, a seaside province, (by wording, Samut means the ocean, Songkhram means war), is located southwest of Bangkok. The province is well-known for its fishery industry, especially its mackerel fish, which has been dubbed as the most delicious mackerel fish in Thailand. There is an annual Mackerel Fish Eating Season Festival in the province.
In addition, fruits are exceptional, such as pomelo, the famous Lychees, and the unforgettable coconuts, coconut products, and their plantations.
You will witness that after we pass by the downtown of Samut Song-Khram province, both sides are coconut plantations, since most of the plantations are connected with the elaborate canal system up to the main floating market, to the big main Mae-Khlong River, and to the ocean in the Gulf of Thailand.
Undoubtedly, coconuts are exported here. In the area, there are also local small factories to peel off coconut fiber and crack the coconut shell for coconut meat, and the must-visit of our first stop is here, the coconut kiln, a house factory where the local produce their coconut sugar (brown sugar) from the coconut flower’s juice (exactly not from the coconut’s juice; you will see the difference).
Coconut Sugar Kiln
Need, a fresh young coconut juice! ……..That is available.
Or try your hand at climbing up to get the coconut flower’s juice from its flower stalk.
Next, continue to
The second stop is at the Longtail Boat Pier.
The approximately 20-minute trip with a longtail boat will take you through an elaborate canal network, fruit orchards, villages, local houses, temples, and coconut plantations.
Arrive at the market, Damnoen Saduak Floating Market.
Exactly, by the canal, along the canal, and on paddle boats that are floating in the canal.
