Note: If you don’t have your own transportation, the following trip could be done by renting a taxi for the whole day.
Bhumibol Bridge and Phra Samut Chedi
After a morning coffee in Bangkok’s Sathorn area, we headed south toward the imposing Bhumibol bridge to cross over the Chao Praya River. The bridge is made of two sections with an exchange in the middle (that we had to take). Crossing the bridge was an impressive and somewhat scary experience.
Next, we drove to see the stupa at Phra Samut Chedi that was on our way. We took some back roads to get there and got surprised by a very cool and steep bridge crossing an affluent of the river (see the pin on the map).
Phra Chulachomkhlao Fort
Good to know that visiting the fort (and the ship) is free of charge.
This dish is a creamy dip made of crab and pork. It is served with rice crackers and is to die for. We’ve been in Thailand for a while, but this is the first time we ran across this dish. Totally recommended and even the picture shows many chilis it is not spicy!
We then ordered some salads and a fried fish. The portions were huge!
Ban Sa Khla
Ban Sa Khla is a small traditional village partially built over water. The main attraction is their colorful temple with the accompanying garden and a little market.
We did a stroll on the “over water” part of the village that was quite cool despite the dead ends and tricky corners.
We also shot a video of our full day, see below:
