Samut Songkhram, 70km south west from Bangkok, is the smallest province of Thailand. The provincial capital was built close to river mouth of Mae Klong, a fairly large river that flows all the way from Kanchanaburi.
Many temples are built on river banks and some populated with birds. This is Wat Ban Leam's monk quarters that gave way to birds!
A bird house sighted cross the Mae Klong on opposite bank.
View seen through pavilion on Wat Ban Laem's ground.
Another bird temple hidden in a quiet location out of town.
Two converted bird houses along the busy Rama II main road.
A failed hotel converted into bird farm!
The largest in town, 2 blocks each as big as factory size building! A stone throw from my favorite sea food restaurant.
Samut Songkhram is also reputed to produce the best lychees in Thailand. It has a short season in mid-April, around Songkhran period. This year, yield was low and prices almost doubled last year!
