Daytrip to Samut Prakan and Crocodile Farm and zoo. To get there were no problem. First take the sky train to the end station and then taxi 30-40 kilometer.

The restaurant inside the area offered dishes like crocodile steak or beef. They even served crocodile burgers. The return trip to Bangkok was a little bit more complicated. I had to go with two different buses. 99% of all information is in Thai script and outside of the tourist areas; the Thai people speak very little English. But with some time and luck I finally find my way home.
