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…

Q5 4NR Day 19 : Mae Sot - Kanchanaburi

“You don’t have to be rich to travel well…” - Eugene Fodor

(Thailand/Myanmar border town)

Day 19: Thursday, 15 Dec 2016
Route: Mae Sot - Kanchanaburi
Distance: 494 km
Hotel: Thai Guest House

By 9:00 am we rode to the Thailand/Myanmar border for photo shots at the Westernmost Point and did some shopping at the Rim Moei Burmese Market.

We rode on Route 12 through the 90 km winding Mae Sot - Tak highway which is undergoing massive upgrading works. We had an early lunch at the Muslim Restaurant in Tak. At a PTT near kampong Phet we stopped for prayers and coffee break. We rode within the speed limits as there were many police road blocks on the way.

We were soaked to the skin as it was raining all the way from Suphan Buri to Kanchanaburi. It was already dark when we arrived in Kanchanaburi and checked-in Thai guesthouse for Baht700/night. We walked to the nearby Walking Street and bought banana pancakes and coffee for dinner. Others rode to the night market in town to have nasi kuning and fried chicken for dinner.

Later we had an hour of relaxing foot massage and walked back to the guesthouse in the rain.
