Life by the Line Samut Sakhon Thailand Travel Guide The train went through the countryside past marshland and groves of brackish-water-loving ton jaak (nipa palm) and mangroves and stopped a dozen times. The route traverses the south-bound highway motorists take on their way to Hua Hin and further South. We found the train ride fascinating, a nostalgic reminder of the old world. While we were still somwhere in the countryside a French couple got on board. They were on their way to Prachuap Khiri Khan via Samut Songkhram. To find people from Bangkok on this train is challenging enough but the sight of foreign visitors was totally unexpected and lent spice to the atmosphere. At less than 50 kph, the diesel train steadily approached the fishing town of Samut Songkhram one hour after we left Ban Laem station.

Legend of Khao San Bangkok Thailand Travel Guide

Legend of Khao San Bangkok Thailand Travel Guide Khao San, as the locals fondly call the patch, is and looks set to remain a tourist Mecca famous from Canada to Australia, Israel to Japan _ with travellers referring to this microscopic piece of Bangkok in a sentimental tone similar to that evoked by the memory of one's first love. Having since been able to work and live in other countries since my first visit it was with interest that I was to return several years later, particularly as I was coming ``post-Leonardo Di Caprio'' and all the hype surrounding that film, `The Beach'', which had its action based around the Khao San legend. Furthermore, I feared that arriving during the peak season of early December would limit my lodging options so when the airport bus stopped just off Khao San I jumped into the arms of the first guest-house tout who greeted me and then led me away from the throng to a newly-opened guest-house by the National Gallery.

It's late afternoon and the sightseeing was excellent. We were joined by Bung Bao, another member of the tourist club who has been a fishermen all his life. His gentle voice, sun-baked face and silver grey beard gave him the aura of a typical fisherman. We headed for Phanak island. The limestone islands in Phangnga Bay make for an awesome spectacle. The Phang-nga coastline was visible from afar. We made a brief stop at a small cave full of quartz stalactites from which it derived its name.
