Along a Bangkok Khlong – a Step back in Time

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.

Bangkok
Pull! Pull!

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.

Bangkok
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.

Bangkok
Sometimes there is a street separating the houses from the Khlong. But there is almost no traffic.

Bangkok Khlong
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.

I like to travel and i like to snap pictures! My mother got me a Eurorail ticket when i was 15 and together with 2 friends we adventured into France. This was the beginning of a new addiction. I do like to take pictures so one thing leads to another and on this site i want to share some of my pictures and some of my trips with you! Now i am on the road for more than 6 months every year. Visiting old friends and making new friends while exploring this big blue ball.
