Our 'express' train

Helen before we departed from BKK station

Our carriage (sleeper) - pre-night-time conversion

Seats away, beds out, curtains down - time for sleep!

The door to the outside is open... ??

We're sitting in a steaming internet cafe in Surat Thani on our way back to Bangkok.

Let me tell you how we get from Phi Phi to Bangkok...

Speed Boat from resort to main harbour (one hour) - Free

Ferry from Phi Phi to Krabi (2 hours) - 300 Baht

Songthaew to Krabi bus station (15 mins) - 40 Baht (tried to con 200 Baht out of us!)

Bus from Krabi to Surat Thani (3 hours) - 130 Baht

Songthaew from Surat Thani Bus station to Train station (1 hour) - 100 Baht

Wait for 4 hours

Train to Bangkok (Sleeper)(14 hours) - 500 Baht

Underground from Train station to Asok - 30 Baht

Sky Train to Phra Kanong - 20 Baht

Walk the last 500 metres!!

So a total of 24 hours from Phi Phi to Bangkok, costing about 1120 Baht (about £15)!!!

Lots of love from Gareth and Helen x x x
