Chaiyo Seafood




Chaiyo Seafood is near to our home so it is always a place that we choose to pop in on the way from somewhere else.


It is always a good idea to arrive in the light so that you can understand that you are directly next to the fast moving Klong and you have the choice to sit on the floating barge or stay on the dry land.


If you go to the barge you will see all the live fish or crabs swimming around in nets and you can choose them. Then there is the gentle rocking of the barge which I did feel a little disconcerting the very first time that we went. 

In the number of visits that we have made here I have only ever seen one other non-Thai people - I think that this is popular with the local people.


Their Bua Tod is the best in Phuket.


The rice was a little more interesting than a shape of boiled rice.


The soup was too powerful for me - I think that it was Geang Som soup - not my particular favour and certainly not for everyone - it is a sweet and sour soup!


Then there was the steamed fish and that was very nice - but as the sun went down I realised that picking out the it's bones was quite difficult with only a low light.



As we returned to our car we walked past a number of 'cultural objects'.


Then there was a link to the tin-mining industry....
