Phra Samut Chedi

Phra Samut Chedi

Phra Samut Chedi Klang Nam means the temple in the middle of the river. Now it is on the left bank. There is an annual temple fair held on both sides of the river in October. It is believed to be one of the longest running fairs in Thailand.

You can reach Phra Samut Chedi from Paknam by catching a ferry from the pier (3) near Paknam Market. This costs about 2 baht depending on the time of day. There is as nice restaurant alongside the river between the pier and Phra Samut Chedi. A good place to drink a glass of beer and watch the passenger boats pass by. Below are some pictures that I took crossing the river by boat.
