https://www.facebook.com/ijuyyasostory On Sunday 21 September, I have a chance to buy a ticket of Bangkok Mass Transit Authority to pray respect to the Buddha.

Arrive at the garage at 7.40 ( departure from Din Daeng Home at 7.00 am)

I intend to go to Mae Klong - Ampawa trip but I just know it when I arrive that this trip was cancelled because of a few people.

So I have to make another choice, that is "9 Temples Tour, Ratchaburi province". The price for this trip is not expensive, it costs 429 Baht only. The atmosphere on the bus is not as fun as I thought because all passengers are elderly people. I sit beside a women with the same age as my mother. In my mind I think I should not have fun from this trip because I take too little sleep ( sleep at 3.30 am ). But, I have already came here !!! So I immediately take a sleep after the bus start departures because I can't stand my drowsiness anymore.


Initially atmosphere, a women who acts as a ticket taker is

describing the place we are going and the detail of each place

About the money for making merit, there is a small change for 20 Baht service on the bus. It depends on ones decision to exchange it. For me I change for 200 Baht ( and continue sleeping).

...............................................................................................

We arrive the first temple at 9.30 am.

Wat Suanluang - Mr. Juk, Samut Songkhram Province


About the meal, the temple has a vegetarian canteen with a noodle of 50 Baht restaurant.

I personally go to eat Oysters fried in egg batter at the restaurant of one auntie named " 30 Baht Oysters fried in egg batter " that is located near trailer and motorcycle. It's yummy.


After everybody finish their role then we are heading to the next place at 10.10 am.

Total expenses at Wat Suanluang - Mr.Juk are listed below:

( 30 Baht Oysters fried in egg batter, 15 Baht Ancient ice-cream, 20 Baht merit making )

During the way to the 2nd temple

The ticket taker announces that we will visit OTOP center for 15 minutes and also visit Damnoen Saduak floating market. Jui have not taken a photo at the OTOP center. The product is cheap.

I have bought 1 Kilogram of Guava for only 20 Baht, it's much more cheaper than the price selling in Bangok ( The ticket taker choose the Guava for me).


We arrive at Damnoen Saduak floating market at 10.30 am.

The driver make an appointment to return to the bus at 11.00 am., so I hurriedly go to take a photo freely.


I was the last person to get on the bus at 11.00 am. because I was indulged in photo taking ( shame on me)

( 7 Baht water, 20 Baht for 1 Kilogram of Guava )

Summary : I give a medium rate voting for travelling with Bangkok Mass Transit Authority. People who join this trip have to admit that the time is so short. For many elder people I have mentioned, they are all nice, so polite even through they don't show their smile to me at the first glance, but they always share their snack and water along the way. The staffs are also cute, not disappointed to offer help to us. The time is too limited, for people who intend to take a lot of photo, you would not have enough time taking a photo because we have to spend both time praying to the monk and photo taking. It can be said that you have to choose only one choice, so I choose to give 20 Baht for making the merit and walk around for photo taking.

The total expense for this trip, I recommend you to read from the above. I totally like it and I would certainly go for other province trip.
