Leaving our comfy home at 6.30am, driving at boring North South Highway, breakfast at Tapah rest area and finally real border at 1pm Malaysia time.
Since it is Sunday noon and I do not foresee heavy traffic at both Malaysia and Thai custom, after getting my custom document and car entry permit done at “Mini Cafe” as usual, I proceed to border and in less then an hour, I am having lunch at this popular Thailand Chicken Rice.
After lunch, continue our journey to Trang, our first night stop at Thailand to Phuket. The reason why I did not stop at Hatyai this time is because distance to Trang is only another 200KM where I can cover in less then 3 hours, beside there are nothing much to see in Hatyai beside shopping. I always plan shopping at Hatyai on the last day so that I do not need to carry so many things around.
On top of that, I will have more time to spend along the journey from Trang to Phuket ( like drop by Krabi ), about 300KM. Else, I have to cover 500KM from Hatyai to Phuket tomorrow.
Reach the hill top restaurant Khao Pubpa at 4pm and decided to have a shot break there, the distance from here to Trang town is about 30KM.
Zheng Ni, Zheng Yuan and Zheng Er.
Wai Yee approved the food quality and we can return whenever we are in Trang.
After dinner, since the night is still young, we decided to visit the Trang night market held every week from Friday to Sunday. The location is just beside the Trang city hall. A 5 minutes drive from the hotel.
But the price is reasonable cheap as most of the customer is local.
