A few pictures from the khlong next to my guest house towards the khlong boat that goes to Pratunam. Apart from a “Boutique Hotel” that someone had to put there it still feels like small-town Thailand. Almost no car noise and everything happens in slow motion.
You find chicken along the khlong
They were happy that we came along. You! Help! Guess the tree was to heavy towards the side and would go into the khlong. So they cut off the branch. I tell you next time if that was all they did.
Why not try to catch a fish while working??
Poor little bird
The big one on the left is made from stone. The others not. They put a fence so the cat can not go fishing.
Guess that the city did put that as an open space for everybody. But the residents did create small private areas in front of their homes. Many have flowers and green. Everything well-kept and clean.
Many small restaurants cater to hungry residents and visitors. There is a wet market as well, fish and meat market and a few little local coffee places.
Sometimes there is a street separating the houses from the Khlong. But there is almost no traffic.

Every day the boat comes and the guys try to clean the khlong. I can not really see a difference since a lot of the people still throw their trash in the water.
