Dag 4: Floating

Floating market

Onze dag begon heel vroeg, de wekker stond al om 5:15 in de ochtend om optijd te kunnen vertrekken. Daarmee stond als eerste de Floating Market op het programma. De naam zegt het al een drijvende markt. Wij gingen met twee bootjes door de kanalen van deze markt. Terwijl we door deze markt heen voeren, werd ons van alle kanten iets aangeboden. Voornamelijk werden etenswaren en souvenirs aangeboden. Echter, zoals onze gids al aangaf waren deze souvenirs vele malen duurden dan wat ze in grote steden zouden kosten.

We hebben tussentijds ook een stop gemaakt bij een souvenirwinkel. Hier heeft onze gids ons uitgelegd hoe suiker en sap verkregen wordt uit cocosbomen. Dit was mooi om te zien, echter was het sap niet te drinken! En was het suiker niet echt zoals we ons hadden voorgesteld.

Als tussenstop van onze lange reis richting de Floating hotels zijn we bij de Bridge of the River Kwai geweest. Dit is een beroemde thaise brug die deel uit maakt van het spoor dat tussen Thailand en Myanmar loopt. Dit spoor is aangelegd tijdens de 2e wereld oorlog een heeft een speciale betekenis gekregen doordat er een film over deze brug was geproduceerd (‘the Bridge in the River Kwai’).

Na een tocht van 4 uur kwamen we eindelijk aan bij de haven van de jungle raft floatels. Vanuit deze haven werden we met motor bootjes naar de floatels gevaren. Dit hotel was het hoogte punt van de dag, omdat het werkelijk waar een klein paradijs is. Het hotel heeft een tropische uitstraling waarbij er geen elektriciteit en dus ook geen wifi aanwezig is, hierbij wordt er gebruik gemaakt van olielampen (wat savonds een erg mooi effect gaf). Deze floatels drijven op het water, wat een rustgevend gevoel geeft.

De grote attractie van het hotel is dat het de mogelijkheid bied om van het ene uiterste van het hotel naar het andere uiterste van het hotel te drijven. Doordat het hotel een langwerpige vorm heeft en evenwijdig aan de stroming van het water ligt, kan je ‘stroom opwaarts’ de rivier inspringen ‘stroom afwaarts’ de rivier verlaten door op het hotel te klimmen

    Hi there! I just wanted to ask if you ever have
    any trouble with hackers? My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and
    I ended up losing many months of hard work due to no back up.

    Do you have any methods to protect against hackers?

    I’ve been browsing on-line more than 3 hours nowadays, but I by no means discovered any fascinating article like yours. It is pretty value sufficient for me. In my opinion, if all webmasters and bloggers made excellent content material as you probably did, the web will be much more helpful than ever before.

    Very good blog! Do you have any suggestions for aspiring writers? I’m planning to start my own website soon but I’m a little lost on everything. Would you suggest starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so many choices out there that I’m completely overwhelmed .. Any suggestions? Bless you!
