Camping again: Sam Lan National Park, Saraburi, Thailand

2 Comments

After awhile, let’s talk about camping again, in Thailand again. It was March and it was hot and dry. I was determined to go out to nature after inhaling city air of Bangkok for quite sometimes (too long) after my last outdoor trip. Go to nature for me mainly means going camping. There were some interesting reviews about this place called Sam Lan National Park in the internet, a place of which my Thai colleagues knew nothing about. It was said that the place offered camping ground, lakes, and waterfall. The latter was the one that I would question later on. Attracted by the cluelessness of my friends and the lakes and waterfall, I took a train and headed there, didn’t really know how to get to the site after reaching Saraburi train station two-and-a-half hours later.

Bangkok – Transportasi Publik (bahasa)

1 Comment

Kemacetan lalu lintas Bangkok, yang membuat tantangan konstan bagi warganya atau warga pendatang, memang legendaris. Tapi kalau kita datang dari Jakarta, kemacetan semacam ini tidak mengherankan. Untungnya di ibukota Thailand ini, jalan raya bukan satu-satunya pilihan. Perahu sungai dan kanal bersama dengan BTS skytrain dan MRT subway system menawarkan alternatif yang nyaman. Posting berikut sedikit bercerita tentang moda-moda transportasi umum dalam kota Bangkok, di darat dan di air. Ada juga info tentang tarif masing-masing moda. Untuk perbandingan, B1 (1 Baht) = Rp. 285, tapi seringnya kita membulatkan Rp. 300 per Baht, untuk memudahkan perhitungan.
