Our friends Voom and Greg invited us out on a day trip to Ratchaburi. We had never been before and of course we are always up for a little adventure!
Khao Ngu (khao meaning mountain and ngu meaning snake) is quite a scenic little spot to visit. Large limestone karsts jut out of the surrounding flat landscape. It was an old stone quarry that has been turned into a recreation park.
There’s a small lake with a nice walking path amongst the limestone karsts. We also noticed there is a flying fox and rope bridge between the peaks but it didn’t look like it was operational anymore.
While walking on the path we passed a fellow busking. Greg asked him if he could play a song, the fellow obliged and took a video of Greg playing. It was a fun exchange and it obviuosly made the man quite happy!
This also seems to be a very popular stop for the school kids, there was a massive group of them. Most of them would say ”hello” and the odd “how are you” followed by a lot of giggling. It was fun for us to interact a bit with the kids and hear them practice their english language skills.
After our visit to Khao Ngu, we made a quick stop at a small local dairy farm where Voom used to live and we met some of her family. It was a fun day and always nice to visit somewhere new!
