Days 328 & 329 Surat Thani – Bangkok (Thailand) / motorbike GS Dakar RTW overland adventure traveller

  • Left 8am & 9am
  • 28th February & 1st March
  • Miles rode 412 (659km)

It was the first time in over a month that I rode the bike and it was tiring, I stopped regularly and didn’t push it. I arrived in Prachuap Khiri Khan on the first night which was by far the most chilled out, non touristy beach resort I’ve been to in Thailand. 

The second day was an easy ride into Bangkok as I ‘broke the back’ of the journey the previous day, nevertheless I took my time and stopped regularly for coffee. On arriving back in Bangkok for the forth time it was like coming home. When I arrived at the hotel various people came out and welcomed me back.

It’s all about the people.

Step outside the tourist areas and food & drink is cheap again; bottle coke 20p / chicken, rice & veg 60p / room at guesthouse £4 – back in Bangkok the prices triple.
