A LEISURE DAY AT FISHERMAN HOUSE
Enjoy a short trip out of Bangkok and begin to unwind. This day is about relaxing and getting to know the local people. Why not try some local delicacies or spend some time foraging for cockles?
- Visit sea salt farm and walk on the top layer of salt
- Visit a fishing village by boat ride as there are no roads!
- Taste local seafood
- Afternoon leisure time; can include reading, kayaking, swimming and cockle picking
You will be picked up from your hotel in the morning and then driven by private vehicle to a seashore in Bangkok where you can explore the local and traditional way of life. (This will take approximately an hour from Bangkok city center). You will then investigate the only district in Bangkok that is located in the Gulf of Thailand.
First we will visit a local sea salt farm community. The local family that you will be visiting are very friendly people and are happy to provide with you information on how to create a salt farm, the different types of salt and how salt is extracted from the sea water. (Depending on availability you may be able to walk on the top layer of the salt like in a natural foot spa).
Then you will go on a boat ride to visit the fisherman village. There are no roads connecting the village, which means that boat is the only way in. You will have a seafood lunch at a fisherman’s house, which is located on the water.
The main work for the local people is fishing. However, they are very conscious about their impact and limit the fishing area for each household so that the surrounding mangrove forest will not be destroyed. The use of chemicals is also strictly forbidden here.
You can also enjoy home cooking, cockles or crab picking, swimming and kayaking.
We will return you to your hotel in the late afternoon.
