Another bump for this thread with a shot of some fishing boats in Paknampran.

Wouldn't be the Thai-Lao Friendship bridge over the Mekong would it?

Heres another one for revival with the Thai Navy's idea of a good mooring - Khao Lak.

Cycled up to Wat Huay Mongkol on Saturday for the first time in a few years and its amazing the expansion this temple has undergone. There are now lakes, pagodas, fountains, parkland, bus parking, ATMs - that jatukam trade must have filled the coffers no end!

Anyone remember this Malarkey?

They probably stopped doing it between 10 and 15 years ago but it was a well know activity prior to that.

I would offer a token prize for an explanation of what's going on but I'm in London and at this rate won't be back until Christmas..mind you a beer's good anytime!
