    Bangkok old town and street art

    February 24 in Thailand ⋅ ☀️ 35 °C

    Seeking something different for my last day in Bangkok I took a motorbike taxi to Talat Noi to hunt out some street art I'd seen online. Talat Noi was a special little area in Bangkok. It still had old fashioned wooden fronted houses, tiny passage ways, street art, garages with massive piles of spare parts, lots of food stalls and I had my best handmade Thai tea here. Seeing a different side to Bangkok was a perfect end to my trip.Read more

    Phuket old town

    February 22 in Thailand ⋅ ☀️ 30 °C

    I took the local blue bus (songthaew) into Phuket old town which is about 45mins from the beach resort I was staying at with a plan to see the famous colourful buildings. The center of town was much pretty than I expected given the very modern outskirts but they have preserved 3 or 4 streets for tourism. The area had painted houses and shops, cute craft shops, lots of street art, colonial buildings and a large temple. I enjoyed a delicious freshly made roti and curry at a traditional but famous hotspot and a shaved ice topped with everything. I spent my final evening down on the beach before going to the night market for a fresh fish dinner.Read more

    Racha Yai & Coral Island

    February 21 in Thailand ⋅ ☀️ 29 °C

    Today I went on a snorkelling tour, which was more of a beach tour but I still had a great time snorkelling. After lots of waiting around at the office for our departure and slightly measly breakfast of instant coffee and sweet toast and marmalade we finally walked down to our boat.Read more

    Kata Village, Phuket

    February 20 in Thailand ⋅ ☀️ 29 °C

    I spent yesterday and today doing very little. Sitting by the pool, walking to the different beaches, (Kata and Kata Noi) swimming in the sea, exploring the shops and market by the beach and basically relaxing. The beaches are packed; the busiest places I've been for ages. Kata is essential just a huge number of hotels and restaurants. For a bit of entertainment I went to Simon's cabaret in the next town which is a fun drag show with amazing costumes.Read more

    Last day!

    We leave the beautiful lake landscape by boat. On small, scenic roads we cycle south along the Klong Phanom National Park to the temple named Wat Bang Riang, which is considered one of the most beautiful in southern Thailand. A short bus drive takes us to Phuket Nai Yang Beach and we are no doubt you will have been moved, inspired and immeasurably surprised by all the wonderful things will have seen and experienced on your cycle odyssey.Read more

    Paktako to Surat Thani (169km)

    February 16 in Thailand ⋅ ☀️ 32 °C

    Today was long! We stopped for breaks but no where very exciting, today was about getting as far down south as possible before we start our journey across to the west coast. Surat Thani was the first big city we stayed but we arrived late in the day so there was no time to explore but we had a drive around before and after dinner and it seemed like a busy place.Read more

    Chumphon to Paktako (95km)

    February 15 in Thailand ⋅ ☀️ 29 °C

    Today we cycled past some lovely fishing villages and sea views, near then end of the journey we stopped at a picturesque bridge over the river. It barely seemed stable for us to walk over but somehow the locals were happy to ride over it. We stayed at an amazing hotel tonight, with three different kinds of banana snacks in the rooms, double balconies and two bathrooms. I took an evening stroll down to the beach and found local families fishing on the beach with long nets, which they pulled up onto the beach and then the kids ran along picking up the fish.Read more
