Day 356 Bangkok – Ban Krut (Thailand) / motorbike GS Dakar RTW overland adventure traveller

  • Left – 11.00am
  • 28th March 2015
  • Miles rode – 222 (355 km)

After a few beers last night I wasn’t about to leave early so after a coffee and goodbye to Cem I left at 11am. I’m pretty sure I won’t be returning anytime soon so as I rode out of the city I looked around and said fair well, as I left the heavens opened and it rained for an hour or so. The clouds parted early afternoon and a bright blue sky welcomed me to southern Thailand. Half an hour later I caught up with about 10 Harley bikers, we rode for an hour before I needed a coffee break.

I choose Ban Krut as my destination as it was about the right distance I wanted to travel and by the beach. To my surprise it wasn’t commercial at all, no westerners, no sex tourism and no large hotels, very nice.
