Umbrella Village in Sankampaeng (Bo Sang Handicraft Centre).
You can watch every steps involved in the umbrella making.
Or buy your own.
Or make your own.
While you were there you can get your stuffs painted with acrylic paints for a very reasonable price. From 50-100 Baht. Depends on the size of the image. The artists were really good.
We also visited a silk weaving centre. I was hoping that we can have a hands on weaving experience. Not so lucky ;-)
Muang On Cave.
This cave is very spiritual.
Coincidentally we went here on Maulidurrasul day. We spent some time discussing how Rasulullah (pbuh) spent quite a bit of time in the cave, prior to the first revelation. It was pretty interesting for the kids to figure out why people find cave spiritual.
We visited Santai Muay Thai, a Muay Thai gym in Sankampaeng. Warm up start at 4pm. Training start from 5pm onwards. You can just drop by to watch them practise. There are quite a number of foreigners who train out of their own personal interest. There were some ladies too.
I thought I will be able to discourage Luqman and convince him how dangerous it is. Not only I fail to convince him, the visit to the gym also get Hajar interested to try it out. OK. Dream on kiddos. Go play something safer please.
After prayer, we went hunting for food and found this wicked sticky rice with mango at the road side.
This guy made the best pad thai I have eaten so far.
