Chalok beachFebruary 19, 2017 in Thailand ⋅ ☀️ 28 °C
On my morning walk this morning I met a girl from Washington who's living here. She said her favorite beach is Chalok beach. So that's where I went today. It was a nice relaxing afternoon of swimming, reading, cold drinks and my first motorbike ride!
The ride was my "taxi" back from the beach. They charge a standard fare of 300 baht, but on the way there I talked the driver (there it was a truck) down to 150 Baht. So, on the way back was also not going to pay 300. I said 200 or I'd walk. And they said ok, 200 on the bike. And I said ok, sure! It was an older guy that I was making the deal with. Once we agreed a younger guy was like "Oh! I'll take her!" Haha! At least that what it looked like they were saying...it was all in Thai.
It was fun way to get back to my hotel. I'm not sure I feel comfortable driving one myself yet though.Read more
