So for a short 3-days-2-nights getaway, we managed quite a lot.
While Daddy was busy with his suit, the rest of us went shopping. It was amusing to witness the children in the store because they were consulting and giving advice to each other. As you can see, they took a while to decide which pairs of shoes they wanted. The shop lady obliged to their frequent requests to try on this pair and that too.
There was a lot more shopping done. Let's just say, a kilogram more and we would have to pay for the extra weight we were carrying.
The terminal station where the train docks every day.
Maeklong Train Market: Notice how close the produce and goods were placed to the rail tracks. The market is rather organised and at different sections of the tracks, different produce were sold. You can find anything from fresh seafood to fruits and vegetables. They even sell bottles of wine and tonic. Ven and I bought salted fish because they were so fresh.
The owners kept their goods when they hear the train coming and almost as magically as the produce disappear, they reappear when the train has gone by.
a quick picture of the two of us.
We also went to the Damnoen Saduak Floating Market where we saw how these people peddle their goods and services in the river. Group picture here before our "sampan" disembarked.
We marveled at how the Thais go about making a living in the river as we do not get to see such sights in Singapore any more.
Then of course, the food! We had the chance to dine at restaurants and we also ate like how the locals would. Each trip that we went on together was memorable because we would try to experience different situations; be it lavish shopping at the high-end malls or street-side bargaining at the local markets. The fine dinning at restaurants or the local food stalls. :)
