  • Technical data:
    • We started off at Wat Chao Pluk at 0745 LT. At 0800 Hr we met a fallen bamboo obstacle behind Wat Khlong Bun and had to take out the kayaks. We launched the kayaks again near Wat Ulom, a bit further south; and continued our travel without problems. Lunch was taken at the floating restaurant "Suan Ahan Rim Khlong" near Wat Sala Daeng at Bang Pahan, followed by a nap. We head off around 1420 LT to arrive at Wat Tong Pu shortly after 1600 LT. 
    • The weather was overcast and hot, with an occasional slice of breeze from the NNW. Temperature at noon was 34.3 C (Heat Index 44 C and 51 C in the sun at noon). We encountered a small number of obstacles which were easily taken either by taking out and in the kayaks or going around the obstacle. We arrived shortly after 1600 Hr at our final destination point. The water regulator at Bang Pahan was filled up with water hyacinth, blocking the open gates.
