It's a special & amazing experience to shopping/ dine in the railway market, especially when the train is arriving. The train is so close to us. However, the market is too crowded with tourists

Reviewed By Sue O - Bangkok, Thailand

Collected from hotel by Khun Jenn and taken to the Maeklng railway market to buy ingredients. Arrived at the right time to witness the excitement of the train arriving and the store holders quickly packing their goods away. Then to an old home in a coconut plantation for cooking school. It was very informative and the end results very tasty. If you aren't really a cook, Khun Jenn is on hand to help you out. Really good experience. Thanks Jenn.

Pinsuwan Benjarong

Reviewed By Don_Muang - Bangkok, Thailand

If you have ever wondered how the Thai people create their beautiful porcelain jars and dishes, here is your chance to see first hand. This small, family owned business creates some of the best benjarong in Thailand. The name benjarong means 5 colors, although these artistic creations typically range from 3 to 8 colors. At P. Ben, as it's called, you can actually stand beside the painters, watch them work, and even take still photographs. (Videos are not permitted.) But be advised that you'll have to take your shoes off, and they usually shut down from 12 to 1 pm so all their employees can enjoy lunch.
Their exquisite work is all done by hand, and the painters are actually amazing artists. In 2003, P. Ben was selected to make all the 12 place settings of benjarong dinnerware that were presented to the Asia Pacific heads of state attending APEC 2003 in Bangkok. At that time, if you wished to order their products, the lead time was from 9 to 12 months. And they weren't even advertising!! Today, the wait for orders is much shorter, and they have a small showroom with some items for sale. Whenever we have visitors from overseas, we invariably bring them to P. Ben, and, without exception, they enjoyed the visit and were amazed by these wonderful creations. Note that the Amphawa floating market, and King Rama II Memorial Park are both nearby, so you can get a "3 for 1" trip.

Reviewed By Fane_Babanul - Rishon Lezion, Israel

Klong Klone is a monkey forest populated by lovely macacs, at the junction of river and sea
You get there by a short boat ride.
The attraction are the lively little monkeys that ride the trees branches and swim in the water.
Throw them treats in the water and they will scamper close to you.

Wat Bang Khae Klang

Reviewed By タンギュイ - 東京

地元の人で結構にぎわっていました。年季の入った木造づくり。チーク材丸柱の正面奥が本堂と思うが、右に広いスペースがあり、靴脱いで上がれる状態。しかし、ほんとには入っていいかは不明。正面奥が本堂に面して左が外、オープンなので、年季の入った木造づくり内はすごく暗く感じた。
