Savour the charm, Warmth and seafood of ban sakha

There are places whose charm does not lie in any historical monument, gorgeous beach or other obvious tourist attraction, but rather in the local style and special atmosphere on offer. When rushing around in a big city, it is easy to forget that there are small towns nearby where people spend their days in the same traditional and unhurried way they did in the past. 

SERENITY BY THE SHORE: Ban Sakha is known for its unhurried and unspoiled environment.

One such place can be found just a little over 30km from Bangkok at Ban Sakha in Samut Prakan's Phra Samut Chedi district, a small community that still retains the traditions and tranquil lifestyle of its past.
