2006: Trang - Bangkok
One year later then expected I will discover southern Thailand by bicycle. Starting in a heavy tropical storm in Trang, I cycle first to Phuket, taking a shortcut by boat from Krabi via Phi Phi island to the famous tourist island.After a few days enjoying beach, sea and nightlife, I cross the peninsula to Surat Thani. A broken spoke holds me one day longer in this southern hub. After Surat I follow the eastern coast, mostly over quiet rural roads, but sometimes also over the national highway. Hua Hin is another famous touristic town with an nice beach, but more quiet than Phuket. Prachuat Khiri Khan and Petchaburi have steep hills with a temple or a palace. From Petchaburi I cycle in one day to Bangkok where I reach the center without any problems.
