Al's Asian Adventure 2006 travel blog

After 3 days of rain on the coast we joked what would happen if the bus was full and we couldn't get out and back to bangkok. Well it was. So we had to get a boat for 4 hours up the coast. Highly amusing as it was a river boat not really built for the sea! And after 3 days of rain it was pretty rough!

Once we got to our destination- the border of cambodia- we had to take a Songthauw (i.e. pickup truck with seats) for an hour to Trat(in the rain)- love it! We arrived at the bus stationa nd thankfully there was a late night bus to bangkok which got us in at 2.30am. The thing i love about thai buses is that they are often luxury, dirt cheap (4 pounds) and you get drinks and food on them!

So a few days chilling in Bangkok- nice hotel (It was Matt's birthday)and last night cocktails on the 60th floor of the banyan tree hotel to celebrate followed by a posh meal (....backpacking? More like flashpacking!)
