Our ride costs about $60B for 4 of us for one way.
The boat ride was pretty smooth despite the choppy water. It moves at high speed. Pretty cool.
Anyway, we didn’t know the boat ride works like bus ride and we actually missed our stop or rather pier. 🤦🏻♀️
We alighted at a place where there are many temples. It’s very crowded. Chewy said the temple is very popular. There’s entrance fee. Of course we didn’t go in. We walked around the place while waiting for the next boat ride to bring us to Sathorn Pier. And yes, we have to pay for the boat ride again.
And so this began our walk to Sampeng Lane where I read I can buy fabrics. It’s a long hot squeezy walk. But no one dares to complain. The children are wiser. Hahaa. But the area is really too crowded and there are so many lanes. The lanes are narrow and it’s really very hot. It’s very much an aimless walk as I really have no idea where to start and who to buy from. I don’t see the fabric I’m looking for too. I did stop at a shop to buy some and that was the only shop which I managed to get the fabric I want. I wish I have bought more cos I didn’t see any other shops selling the kind of fabric I want.
We headed to China World. It’s an air-con mall selling fabric too. They waited for me at the food court, giving me an hour to roam by myself. Again, not exactly what I want. Think the best buy here will be the lining.
My final loot. 27m of fabric and 18m of lining. It was heavy carrying two bags of fabric. We had to walk back to the pier and take BTS to our next destination.
Cephas concluded that he would stop complaining when I want to go Chinatown to buy fabric as he doesn’t need to take boat or walk through narrow lanes! How wise! 😂😂
