My Travel Journal

"There isn't much I haven't shared with you along the road and through it all there'd always be tomorrow's episode" - Elton John

I started traveling around the world since early 80s when I had the opportunity to combine business trips with vacations. Then later when my rezeki is in abundance, there were numerous other trips along the way for vacations, most of the time with hubby and the kids when the timing is right. I have also started to compile the journal and photo-pages covering almost more than 25 years of world wide travel. Some destinations I visited just once, others many times. Many of those places are the obvious famous places people would like to visit but some, the casual traveler doesn't even think to try. I have placed links to my travel at the side bar of my personal page, My Life Reflections, and will be updating them from time to time.

My wish is to continue my travel and complete circumnavigate the globe, insyaAllah…

Day 2 : Ride to Koh Lipe

Day 2 - Friday, 31 Jan 2014
(Koh Lipe - Pak Bara - Hatyai)

(The entrance to Varin Beach Resort)

We woke up early and had buffet breakfast at the hotel cafe. After breakfast we packed our bags and headed to the beach to have some photo shots. By 10:00 am everybody was ready to board the long-tail boat direct to the mainland ferry which was already waiting for us.

The journey back was smooth and we managed to take a short nap. After reaching the Pak Bara Pier we retrieved our bikes from the parking area and rode to the Pak Bara beach where we had a hearty lunch by the seaside.

We convoyed out of Pak Bara and headed towards Hatyai. We reached the Golden Crown Hotel around 4:30 pm. After checking-in, we took a short rest in the room.

We gathered in the lobby around 8:00 pm and walked a short distance to the shopping area around the Grand Plaza hotel. We indulged in a 2-hour Thai massage before the gang gathered at the roadside warong for a round of teh tarik and pulut durian.
