Left George Town on the Island of Penang, Malaysia by ferry to the town of Butterworth where I boarded a overnight train to Bangkok, Thailand at 1420 pm only two sleeper car to start with more added on as we headed north. Got to the boarder at 1800 went through Malaysia exit point and entered Thailand(another country added to my list). then back on train heading north. nice train have the lower bunk on one side of train only 2 bunks high total of 36 per car, was lucky the top bunk empty the whole trip which took 21 hours, time to kick back and watch the county slide by, dinner on the train okay meal, only problem no beer, will make up for it when I get to Bangkok, a good night sleep on to Bangkok next day arriving at 11:00am a tuk tuk to the hotel got my room had ac problems so was moved a couple time before got one that worked. out for a walk around very interesting place lots of massage parlors had to check one out, nice massage, then a bit of dinner a few beers at local bar back to hotel and bed
