Bangkok is a fast paced city, but sometimes it’s nice to get away from the hustle and bustle and relax for a weekend in the countryside. We say take a trip to Samut Songkhram and check out these off the beaten path things to do.
We love Thailand’s homestays for their unique character and personalized service. So when we were introduced to this homestay in Samut Songkhram called Baan Suan Krua, it was love at first sight.
