Day 20: Friday, 16 Dec 2016
Route: Kanchanaburi - Chumphon
Distance: 468 km
Hotel: Palm Sweet Resort
This morning we visited the famous Bridge over the River Kwai for photo shots before we rode out of town on Route 4 towards Chumphon. It was raining quite heavily on the way. We stopped for lunch at Husna Restaurant in Cha-am and performed our prayers at the surau.
In Hua Hin, we detoured to visit Rajabhakti Park where seven giant bronze statues of great Kings of Thailand, stand in a line against the cloudy dark sky. It was raining again all the way to chumphon. It was already dark when we arrived in Chumphon and checked in Palm Sweet Resort for Baht700/night.
After hot showers and prayers we rode to Fareda Muslim Restaurant, quite a distance away from our resort for dinner.
