Here we are, at the railway market. :"D

Finally I am back again to PG. (After a 10 days trip in Japan). Tones of backlog email to be cleared. (And yes, it is cleared) some minor items to follow up... as well as some backlog photos and posting to be done. :"P That's why you all will not got the chance to see the photos from Japan yet. (So sorry about that). Hopefully I could get some teaser shoot before I actually published it. (seriously processing 10 days (may be 9, I didn't shoot any photos for 1 day) of photos are going to need a lot of time) :"P

More photos after the jump...

Anyway, I would like to take this opportunity to thanks 小慧 and Alex for putting up this trip for us. Without both of your trip planning, I don't think this trip will ever happened. (Specially to 小慧 for pretty much planning out the whole itinerary for us). THANKS! :"D (Hopefully all of us has not caused any issues for both of you in the trip) :")

Some did welcome me with a shy smile. :)

Anyway, let me continue with my getaway in Bangkok. :"P It is going to be a pretty much simple Day 4. we went to only 2 places nearby @ Amphawa. Which are the market beside the train railway as well as another floating market on the north of Amphawa.

This round they are ready and posing for a shoot. :"D *snap*

We wake up pretty early that day... get ourselves ready and the owner of the hostel is kind enough to bring us out to take the taxi. We reach the market pretty early. (Since there are schedule when the train will pass by). So I decided to hang around there, walking around to get some shoot for the people in the market. :"P (As usual... that's the normal CH).


The train is approaching... *chu chu*

The goods are just below the train ~: O

It is amazing how fast the sellers kept their stuff when when the train is approaching. Some of them just left their basket there where they are so sure that the train will just pass by nicely on top of the goods. (Amazing).

This is how congested the floating market is... :"P

After that, we took a bus to the floating market. We manage to get up to the bus via some help from a grand lady who teach us which bus to go up on. And then, we meet another 2 people (One is Thai and One is from Taiwan) who is heading to the same direction. So in the end, when we reach at the location, we share the same boat. (And we get some additional discount due to bargaining from the Thai lady - Thanks to her on that) :"P

She looks so happy! (Yeah I just bought a mango from her) :"P


One last shoot before we left the floating market

The floating market is VERY congested. full with boats (Yes are boats) pretty much each boats will need to slightly bang on each other to get to where they are headed. along the floating market. You will noticed a lot of hawkers selling their goods (vege, fruits, foods and souvenirs) and you will need to stop your boat in order to buy from them.


The fare keeper for the taxi


Took this shoot before we headed to the bus station

After the visit to the floating market, we took another taxi back to the location where we took bus. and the time required for the bus to travel back to Kao San is around 1 hour plus. (and also it depends on the bus you took as well, if it is an express bus it should be there around 1 hour, if not it is going to be like around 1 hour and 40 minutes).


Yes it is close to evening

Finally, we close our day via some window shopping near that area.It has been another tiring day that day. But at least what I know is that I feel more relax compare to the first 2 days when we have just landed in Bangkok.


Getting some rest off the tut-tut during traffic jam. :"P

Anyway, more to come in the next few days. Today gallery is available here. Once the Bangkok posting is finish, then I will work on the recent Japan trip posting then. :"P (Stay tune)... No matter what, I hope all of you have a great night. Cheers...

* And is good to be home... (I miss my bed so much...) x"D
