Driving to Samut Sakhon for fresh seafood

Ok, so going to Samut Sakhon isn’t exactly the same as going to Tokyo.  And obviously the sights are different.  We were having a party last weekend and we decided to go to Samut Sakhon for fresh seafood.  Samut Sakhon is the heart of the seafood industry in the area so we figured that fresh seafood would be in abundance.  And also reasonably priced.

Also in abundance were many things to photograph.  Not quite Shinjuku, but interesting.  Maybe only to me.

  1. just curious why you did have to take Rama IV to Samut Prakarn?? i was trying to figure out which way.

    btw, those naked squids and fresh seafood made me slaver!

  2. Don’t you take the Rama 9 bridge to Samut Prakan?

    I grilled squid that night. It was very chewy and delicious.

  3. Nope, it’s Rama 9 if you go to Samutsakon (floating market). but it isn’t necessary to Samut Prakarn. You sure? it’s Samut Prakarn, not Samutsakon.

  6. it’s always confusing since we have triple Samut provinces in Thailand – Samut Songkharm, Samut Sakorn and Samut Prakarn. I’m sometimes confused also 😉
