We set out yesterday morning at 6.30, cab to the ferry to the main land (one hour) to get to shore and find that no buses went directly from Kuala Perlis.
After thumbing through the Lonely Planet map and a chat we bunged a coach driver RM20 that was bound for Ipoh to drop us at Alor Setar. From there we grabbed another bus to Butterworth then the ferry across to George Town and a bus to China Town. What a mission. But we were there by lunchtime.
Happy days! All ended with a dinner of sushi, crispy duck and a well deserved beer.
Today we made the journey to the Thai Embassy and successfully acquired our visas. You just never know we these things, there's always an element of doubt at to some typo or something.
So then it was back to China Town and booking a bus for tomorrow morning to Hat Yai in Thailand. From there we'll be heading to Krabi, Phuket and Ko Phen Yang for Christmas.
Love to you all Chris and Petrina xx
