No Singing in Song-khla…!!

As the title suggests, our decision to ride to, and stay in Song-khla, was not one of our most inspired choices of places to visit…!! There didn’t seem much to see along the coast south of Koh Lanta, so we opted to ride across the peninsula and then turn south and ride along the narrow […]

The Playground that is Phuket…

After a relaxed breakfast, we left Ranong and headed south for Phuket, Thailand’s largest island and playground to many… We passed through Ratcha Krut, Mon Klang and Kapoe, then followed the coastline past Kam Pham,  Ban Bang Wan and Lam Ru… Traffic on Route 4 was light, and we rode the 265 km to Phuket […]
