    Day 2 (Chanthaburi จันทบุรี)): Eastern Thailand Food and Travel Tour. Watch all 8 videos here:

    Chanthaburi (จันทบุรี), Thailand and the entire eastern coast of Thailand are known for incredible seafood, and I was especially excited for this day, to meet Uncle Tom (ป้าหลุยลุงทอม), the Oyster King of Thailand!

    Ban Ta Chaelab Pier (ท่าเรือบ้านท่าแฉลบ) - From Chanthaburi town, we drove to the pier to meet up with Uncle Tom who would pick us up in his boat. Uncle Tom is an amazing man, friendly and care, and he knows his seafood.

    First, we took the boat to Uncle Tom’s oyster plot in the brackish open waters of the bay. He pulled out giant strands of oysters soaking in the salty water. It was pretty cool to see.

    Then we headed over to Uncle Tom’s floating raft restaurant where his wife was already busy preparing a huge Thai seafood meal. She cooked half a dozen dishes, including the massive oysters. The food was awesome, the setting was perfect. This was one of the best experiences I had in Chanthaburi, Thailand!

    Here are all the dishes we had:

    Oysters (หอยนางรม)
    Oyster omelet (ไข่เจียวหอยนางรม)
    Tom yum goong (ต้มยำกุ้ง)
    Sen Chan pad boo (เส้นจันท์ผัดปู)
    Fried barramundi (ปลากระพงทอด)
    Steamed crab (ปูม้านึ่ง)
    Pla plaa (ปลาพล่า)
    Squid (ปลาหมึกนึ่ง)

    Price - 5,400 THB for 6 people

            You don’t eat oysters right... you suck the “ liquor “ then eat the meat just saying just your optimism is frustrating

                                    Kactus Juice I thought it was very entertaining. I’m happy for him. Nothing wrong with eating like a king and seeing and experiencing something most people never will. Be happy he shared this experience with you.

I visited Phanga islands, floating village, etc. I always wonder for those living there, where is their human waste go? I hope they have collection containers and brought inland for proper treatment and disposal.
