They cart sea water into these dams and then pump it from one dam to another as the water evaporates till they can harvest the salt, it's then trucked to a factory for cleaning and packing
Tur was a great guide and very willing to help with any request
This is the crowd 2 minutes prior to train comming notice how the awnings touch
That straight bar next to Jans foot is the railway track.
Jan standing between tracks.I switched to video for the actually train movement so that willbe on youtube later. When the train came we were pushed down a short alley and the awnings and goods were back in place before you could blink
They make coconut sugar from the sap of the flower, it tastes like caramel and they use it for deserts.

This was a private with just us and Tur, the guide and driver, Tur was a lot of fun and quite imformative Tur manage to get Jan to try some quite weird food, which was suprisingly nice and sweet. The train market was amazing, the way they folded their awnings and pulled back there wares and then replaced them as soon as the train passed doesn't do justice to photos, The river port was a Thai holiday spot and we appeared tobe the only round eyes.
