waiting for the first banana pancake - Hat Yai, Thailand
After painful 8 hours (where 3 of them was waiting in a queue on Thai side of the border) we reached first major town in Thailand - Hat Yai, nice place to rest and spend evening.
moving on... from Hat Yai to Nakhom Si Thammarat
green - Khanom Country
Early wake up in Hat Yai, out in the rain, grab tuk-tuk and head to Nakhom Si Thammarat, where we change to bus toward Khanom, our beach destination.
our place for the next 5 days - Hallo Villa Khanom
peopleless beaches in Khanom
Khanom was great spot to relax. There was a rain here or there, but we were having a few kilometres long sandy beaches just for us.
this is Bangkok, baby
After Khanom we moved to Surat Thani and jumped on a plane to Bangkok. After one day stay we continued our journey towards east, to Cambodia.
crossing from Thailand to Cambodia
this why we dragged us over here - Angkor Wat
Objective of the jump to Cambodia was same as for 95 % of tourists coming to the country - see Angkor Wat. We toured around the grren way - on a bike (suggest you do the same).
