Nov 12, 2016 - Phitsanulok

We are on our way home. This is our last night in Thailand and we are waiting for our Farewell Dinner in to begin. We will be up early in the morning - 2:45 to catch our plane. We are behind on our post. Just have not had time to do them. Will have time to get some ready on the long flight home. Yesterday, for example we were up at 5:30 and returned to our room after 10:00 pm. One can say we are getting our money worth. The nice thing about OATS is that they work at getting you to be acquainted with the whole country, so they drove us in a...

Le stop marche normalement plutôt bien en Thaïlande mais les gens ne comprennent pas toujours ce que nous faisons et il nous laissent systématiquement a un arrêt de bus et il est impossible de leur faire comprendre que nous voulons juste voyager de cette manière. En fait, il est parfois plus rentable de prendre les transports en communs par rapport a l'effort fournit pour faire su stop, qui reste nehamoins intéressant sur de courtes distances. L'un de nos chauffeur aujourd'hui est le premier a comprendre et nous sommes bien d'acord avec lui...

Apr 18, 2008 - Phitsanulok

March 18 It was time to make a move. If we didn’t, I fear we would have stayed in our garden until dad had to leave. That wouldn’t have been an entirely bad thing, very relaxing, but perhaps a tad wasteful of dad’s time. I was still stuck on finding that tuk-tuk driver, so we took a bus to New Sukhothai and searched around. I eventually realized how unrealistic I was being, trying to find a single driver in a town of hundreds, but wasn’t quite ready to give up. We had lunch in a roadside restaurant, close to where we’d seen him the first...

Dec 16, 2006 - Phitsanulok

So at the train station were some other travellers, still again keeping to themselves, do I have a sign that says do not talk to me???? Finally we got on board the train and took our seats. Finally some friendly faces sitting behind me were 2 18 or 19 year old overexcitable German girls but they were friendly and all excited about travelling and being in Thailand. They were making their way to Sukothai on a bus from the train station but I had decided to stay in Phitsanulok as it's meant to be a nicer town and tomorrow I will visit the...

Nov 17, 2006 - Bond!

We saw our first movie in the theatre in over 4 months----Bond, James Bond!! Yes, it opened here this weekend. We definitely need to see it again; those blue eyes are piercing!! The cinema complex was in a very modern/fancy shopping area where the "sky train" passes. So we decided to check it out and realized that 007 was playing. We got to choose specific seats in the theatre and the ones we had were leather and reclined. It was great! We actually chose the least expensive seats---other options were sofa seating with blankets and pillows....

Feb 11, 2006 - Phitsanulok (25/01/06)

Le Phitsanulok de nos jours est une ville plus petite et moins touristique au nord de la Thailande, qui était néanmoins la capitale du pays pendant environ 25 ans au 15e siècle. Nous y avons juste fait une escale sur notre route pour Sukhothai. Typiques pour Phitsanulok sont ses bateaux-maisons sur le fleuve Mae Nam Nan, car c'est l'unique ville en Thailande où il est permis d'habiter sur un bateau. Le temple Wat Phra Si Ratana Mahathat est également intéressant. Sa statue de Bouddha est presque autant vénérée que celle du Bouddha...

Feb 7, 2006 - Phitsanulok / Sukhothai

We boarded the 9.52am train from Ayuthaya to Phitsanulok and arrived at 13.57. Having learnt from our last experiance we rushed out the doors and headed for the first guesthouse in our book and thank god they had a room, albiet a cell from Alcatraz!! But for 2 pounds a night we are not complaining. Once again we dumped our stuff and went for a wander and found out info on how to get to Sukhothai where we wanted to see some ancient monuments. Once we had sorted that out we went to have some dinner and found ourselves on Food Saftey Street...

Jan 23, 2006 - Sukhothai to Phitsanalok

Packed up after breakfast since I am leaving today. My train leaves Phitsanlok at 940pm, so I decided to waste the day in Phitsanalok since I've seen enough of Sukhothai. Walked around for awhile and couldn't find anything I could eat so all I had was potato chips. All the stands had meat, and strange looking meat at that. Couldn't find any fried rice anywhere. Headed to find the old Buddha casting factory. This is where they make buddhas the old way with a wax mold. Finally found it after a long walk and the museum was closed, but the...

Nov 7, 2005 - Phitsanulok

07 November - to Phitsanulok I took a ferry across the river and a short walk to the train station. A train left just after 0900 to go North to Phitsanulok, which was the capital of Thailand for 25 years at one stage. The scenery en route wasn't that interesting, pretty flat with mainly palm trees, paddy fields and grotty towns - although now and then in the distance some interesting shaped mountains would pop up. I'm afraid so far Thailand isn't doing it for me, so I hope that something happens to change that. It's too early to give up on...

Oct 24, 2005 - Phitsanulok - just a point on the map...

...here I changed from train to bus in only ten minutes - with the help of a very nice Thai woman, who like me went to Sukkothai and before getting off the bus, gave me a tiny little origami-bird, she had folded out of her busticket... ...hier bin ich also vom Zug in einen Bus umgestiegen - in rekordverdaechtigen zehn Minuten, da mir eine extrem nette Thailaenderin dabei half, die wie ich nach Sukkothai wollte und mir noch, bevor sie ausstieg, einen winzigen Origami-Schwan schenkte, die sie aus ihrem Busticket gefaltet hatte...
