Jan 20, 2015 - Trang

Well, car collected. We asked our hosts, Tak and ? (Her husband but I can't remember or pronounce his name) gave us directions. They thought it a long way, it's not really. So off we go, there's a lovely park which is probably a huge lake with fabulous water lilies - not like ours but really large billowy flowers which stick their heads right up our if the water. Anyway, the lake has paths and little house type buildings over and surrounding it. There's lots of beautiful labelled trees for shade, really pretty. So, wander, wander,...

Nov 12, 2010 - Nous voila en Thailande

Dixseptieme pays du voyage et troisième en Asie, nous voilà donc en Thaïlande. Le nom de Thaïlande est bien connu comme étant une destination touristique importante mais chacun avec différents intérêts... Bien qu'il y ait beaucoup de touristes, tous appelés localement "farang", les thaïs ne parlent pas beaucoup d'anglais. La communication est donc un peu plus difficile qu'en Malaisie ou les gens ne se débrouillaient pas trop mal. De plus, nous ne pouvons absolument pas lire l'écriture thaï qui est très joli a nos yeux mais ne nous évoque...

May 20, 2010 - trang - mission aborted!

got up at 6:30am and was picked up at 7:30am by bus to go to trang for a day or 2. Nice trip down there, talking to a swedish girl most of the journey when we could hear each other above the awful thai pop music the driver insisted on playing full blast!! You ever had that feeling when u get somewhere that u really just don't like it?? well, i had that with trang! instantly hated the place, cant even say why, just really didnt like it. so much so, i sat down, had a cup of coffee and thought about things and decided to head to......

May 24, 2009 - Trang

Next up its Trang which at first sight is just another Thai provincial however towns of this nature are growing on us because the people just seem more approachable and much more interested in us rather than viewing foreigners as a source of cash. We spent two days in Trang and enjoyed it especially the night market which sold excellent cheap food, night markets are definately growing on us. We had a wander around town on a baking hot second day viewing the towns four temples which all had their interesting points, Ilona doing her best to...

Mar 12, 2008 - Good Night Hermit Crab Beach

Koh Mook We are walking the 200 or so metres home from dinner along the beach. We stop to watch one of the many large hemit crabs crawl across the sand. Every night they come out and cover the sand with their distinctive tracks that look as if someone's been driving a toy truck over every inch of beach. The black night sky is filled with starts. Asha has earlier already pointed out Orien and we've all gazed at the crescent moon. Asha is asleep in my arms, having fallen asleep at the restaurant after eating dinner - her nightly bedtime...

Mar 8, 2008 - Extended stay in Trang

For a variety of reasons (Kale and thrush, extending time with grandparents, foreshortened trip to Hat Yao etc.) we ended up spending 5 nights in Trang, a sleep inland provincial capital which, at most, usually provides holiday-goers with one night's accomodation between coastal beach destinations. We had a surprisingly lovely time, though, for being in a place without touristic attractions. It provided a nice citified counter-point to our previous 10 days on the beach at Koh Lanta. The coffee was plentiful, cheap and good - Trang is famous...

Mar 7, 2008 - Volunteering in Thailand

By Eric We started our volunteer work about a week ago in Trang, Thailand. We are volunteering through an organization called Cross Cultural Solutions. Our volunteer assignment is at a daycare called the Borommajoranni Daycare Center and is with about 50 three year olds. We are living in a house with 17 other volunteers from Canada, England and the U.S. We sleep in bunk rooms, eat in the communal kitchen and use the showers that are out back in a separate building. The living arrangements are quite comfortable, albeit a little unsanitary....

May 11, 2007 - Koh Mook - Day 1

Matt and I woke to a gloriously sunny day on the island. Matt went for an early morning run but I slept in until he returned and then we went to eat breakfast together. We began to notice that, although fully staffed, the wait-staff was a little lacking in their service. But, we reasoned, it is low-season and we were the only guests in the entire resort. We wanted to lay around and do nothing the entire day which was great because there was nothing to do. We spent the majority of the day by the pool and it was so nice because the water...

May 10, 2007 - Koh Mook - Getting There

We had come to Trang with the express purpose of getting out of Trang and onto the Trang Islands. After some discussion with the lady of the house, we decided to head to low-key Koh Mook. We woke early, had a very good, very cheap breakfast at the guest house and headed out (bags in tow) to the mini-bus stop. Mini-buses are basically just vans that go to whatever destination you want when the fare is full. We arrived just as one was preparing to leave and we quickly climbed in and were off to Kuantunku Pier, where we needed to catch the...

May 9, 2007 - Trang

We woke to the screaming wails of a totally out-of-control little girl seated right next to us. It was time to get up anyway, it was around 8am and arrival was scheduled for 10am. Breakfast was supposed to be served at 8am but by 8:15am we decided to make our way to the dining car- I was famished. On the way, we walked by our waiter from the night before; he was passed out against the window- it must have been some performance. In the dining car was the other waiter/cook, also a very sweet "pretty" boy with long, shiny hair clipped up but...

May 7, 2007 - Koh Lanta

Our next destination was inspired by an advert we saw in a tourist guide. The advert was for the Brit cafe and it did sunday roasts! So with our mouths watering we left Ton Sai, and Aya, and set off on sunday morning for the 2 and half hour journey to food heaven!! The cafe was on Koh Lanta, a small island just south of Krabi. The journey as usual did not go smoothly and we arrived about 5 hours later after being stuck in the queue for the tiny car ferry to the island. As usual we arrived and were bombared with touts selling us their hotel,...

Apr 12, 2007 - Koh Lanta Krabi

After tearing ourselves away from our favourite place yet, we arrived via ferry to Koh Lanta, another island in Krabi. We found a great bungalow on the beach, run by really friendly locals. However, we gotta admit, that after Phi Phi, Koh Lanta was a little bit of a let down. The beach was still beautiful, but it just didn't compare to Tonsai beach where we had spent so many days enjoying the unbelievable view. The busy season in southern Thailand is coming to a close now (May is the beginning of the off season) and the first day there, we...
