Continued from Thailand – Laos Travel: Day 4 – Part 2 – Khao Chong Kra Chok in Prachuap Khiri Khan. For pre-travel, please refer here.
Regarding blogging, I am a diligent and persistent person. But that persistence also refers to circumstances. When the ‘writer’s block’ hit, I lost my writing mood. I promised not to write halfway, so I had to persevere as well.
As we climbed to Khao Chong Kra Chok Hill, I forgot to take a picture of the whole view of the entrance. After we went down the hill, then I remembered to take a picture of the entrance.
After crossing the road, there are many vendors and hawkers at the entrance to Wat Thammikaram Worawihan (WTW). From drinking water to ice cream and bananas to be given to the monkeys.
A very cute tricycle stall and it sells ice cream. It looks like a familiar logo. The writing is in Thai. Ohhhh ….. apparently the logo for Walls ice cream.
The magnificent Wat Thammikaram Worawihan. Here there are three main buildings. One in the middle and two more are located to its left and right.
Not much information about this WTW. There are only so many stories about Wat Thammikaram located at the top of Khao Chong Kra Chok hill compared to this WTW.
Pictured again but this time in front of Khao Chong Kra Chok’s writing in Thai.
Next, we approached WTW. Unfortunately, our walk only stopped here because there is not enough time. To my mind, maybe it is the same as the other Wats.
There are also pigeon feeding activities here.
From a distance, I saw a tower that I’m not sure what its name and function are. It’s a bit far even though it looks as close because I’ve zoomed the camera as close as I can.
If WTW is in front of you, try turning left. A Buddha statue will be seen here.
Because it is written in Thai, I don’t understand a single word. It is a tourist site, should be bilingual, namely English and local.
Take another picture of the monkey statue from a different angle. This time, facing the jetty.
One of the government buildings found here.
While walking, we came across a Muslim stall here. The location is next to the “City Pillar Shrine”. Tatie and Aqif felt lazy to cross the street, so I crossed alone just to ask and see the type of food sold.
I saw them selling chicken rice and sticky rice. Haa, sticky rice? Can Malaysians like us eat glutinous rice in the mid-afternoon like this? Then I crossed the street again and informed Tatie about the sticky rice. As I expected, she was not interested either. Ok, so we keep walking and hope that there are other Muslim stalls selling food.
Location for Muslim stalls. GPS: 11.811810, 99.797173
I just remembered that next to the Muslim stall there were several stalls selling fruits. We bought orange fruit but they are small in size. A kilo is worth THB80.
Electric and communication poles with fibrous wires.
This is where we were scolded for not being allowed to take pictures of memorabilia on the inside. They said that it was due to security issues. Only outside areas are allowed. I just want to show in this blog the difference between their police station and our country (Malaysia).
If we had time, we would have stepped into this place. It reads Forensic Science of Prachuap Khiri Khan on the signboard. I suppose there might be an exhibition or a mini-museum inside there.
We diligently walked 700 meters back to Maggie Guesthouse. For your information, even though it looked hot, close to the sea and almost noon …………… but we didn’t sweat at all.
This is our main problem as parents and during this trip to Thailand and Laos. Some children prefer to be carried by the mother. But in other situations, they prefer to be carried by their father. It’s common in any family. Maybe when with mom, they feel more secure. So, there are many places where Tatie had to carry our child and felt very tired, let alone if at the same time simultaneously carried a backpack and a child. Many times I wanted to carry Aqif, but he didn’t want to. Maybe on the next trip, we will bring a light and small Travel Stroller.
This is a local style (exterior/interior) for a store that sells car accessories. It was 11.32 am and we arrived at Maggie Guesthouse. Our timing arrival was just perfect! My blog post this time doesn’t talk as much as the previous post, hahaha!
For the next entry, I will tell you a review about Maggie Guesthouse and our trip to Hua Hin. For your information, today is 31 December 2016, which means we will spend the night in Hua Hin on New Year’s Eve and ending the year 2016 there. Continued to next entry …..
