Date : 9th September 2010
Time : 8.30am – 5.00pm
Destination : Phuket – Krabi – Trang – Hatyai
Distance : About 450KM

Check out at 8.30am and start our journey driving to Hatyai.  Along the Patong beach – Phuket town bypass, there is a huge premium branded outlet where we thought dropping by but unfortunately it was not open for business yet.

Refuel to full tank in Phuket and that should bring you all the way back to Malaysia without refueling again.  From Phuket to Malaysia is about 500KM.

Passing the Sarasin bridge, we are back to Thailand mainland.
