Snakes and a day off in Bangkok


Having a day off is always a pleasure and it is always worth organizing something. We decided to visit the Snake Farm. The only choices we had were how we were going to get there...


A 10 baht bus was the best start. 


Followed by a trip down the Soi for another 10 Baht. Then the River Taxi was our next call - not for everybody.


Arriving there and we did not want to walk we took a Tuk Tuk - which is always a lot of fun - these spiderwebs have been added to reduce the amount of bag snatching which has occurred from them.


Arriving at the Snake Farm and we looked around the snakes and into the building - worth visiting if you want to know more about snakes - more to come on - http://timinphuket-thingstodo.blogspot.com



The show was both informative and entertaining - we would return again. Then we were on a mission to find a DVD - Patong was not ready at that time - so we took a Tuk Tuk to Pratunam.


Wow - endless amounts of clothing in such a small area was incredible. Apparently this is real human hair - I wonder how this can be true?



There were the fancy Shopping Malls and then the side streets - the only difference was the air-conditioning - more to come on - http://timinphuket-thingstodo.blogspot.com.


On leaving we were unable to go anywhere as the police had stopped all the traffic for someone. Then back on the river taxi - a great day out.
