It was Friday and I planed with a friend to go for "one day trip" on my weekend.
The condition of this trip should be:
1. The place is not too far from Bangkok
2. We must be able to relax and chill.
After searching from Google, we found The Salaya and Baan Sa La Din in Nakornpathom touch our mood. This place is only 2 to 3 hours driving car from Bangkok.
Today, We start from Bangkok by 7 pm by driving a car and reach Baan Sa La Din (first destination) by 9.45 pm. There is a small street market in front of Baan Sa LA Din, here, P' Pen teach us how to cook "DRY RICK".

The highlight of Baan Sa La Din is to "take long tail boat" traveling to Na Bua (latus farm), Gac Farm(Baby Jackfruit farm), and Orcid farm

We spend about 3 hours traveling with long tail boat. I impress with service of local people. They are very friendly and they are willing to discuss about secret of planting lotus, gac, and orchid and give suggestion "where to go" in Nakornpathom.
Lunch time, we go to The Salaya .
We choose The Salaya in our trip because many of my friends give recommendation.
The Salaya does not dissatisfy me.
The Salaya is a community mall where we can find drinks, foods, shows, gifts, workshops, café, bar, hotel, meeting room, party, event, wedding suit, fashion and lifestyle . Especially for food, There are many kinds of foods in many shops, serve customer day and night
