Greeting from Thailand!

Arrived at Hatyai on 17Dec, today is my 2nd day in Hatyai. Currentlt relaxing at a cafe and working on the net. Wonder how i can post the pics here?

Tomorrow will leave Hatyai to Trang and Krabi, stay 1-2nights there before heading to Phuket.

Nothing much in Hatyai. Perhaps will stay at Songhla on the way back i.e. on 1-Jan12.

Trang is a very nice small and peaceful town! i love it. stay at Thumarine (sister hotel to the one you stay i.e. thamarin thala) only 750baht very nice room value for money.

Will send you more once i have found more convenience in working on it.

Am doing this posting in my Phuket budget hotel (http://phuket-blueoceanresort.com/rooms/studio/) room now. I ony searched for hotel when i arrives Patong beach yesterday. Drove around looked at some hotels and liked this one (blue ocean studio). asked the price the want charge me RM150, then i went to a few agency website and finally manage to online book through booking.com with only RM75!! IT IS EXACTLY THE SAME ROOM. So much defferent in rate. i always compare online booking and hotel walk-in during my this trip and i have save atleast 40% in rates. sometimes hotel walk-in direct offer much better rate than online booking. do compare. we like this way i.e. able to drive around look at the hotel options (go in look at the room also) then only make final decision with best rate. i tried once pre-booking before trip through net by turn out room not as nice as in website :(, so never do this again liao.

My drive from JB – Phuket is very relaxing and exciting. THANKS KENT FOR HIS BLOG, IT REALLY MAKE THE DRIVING SOUNDS SO SIMPLE (AND IT REALLY IS!).

This is my 1st time dirving to Thailand. AND I DO NOT HAVE A GPS! I STILL DO IT THE TRADITIONAL WAY, AND IT CAN BE FUN ALSO I.E. YOU WILL GET TO THE TOWN’S ROADS BETTER IN YOUR MEMORY. Just obtain those free maps when you reach every town. However i did buy 1 Southern RM12 and it is very useful when i drive between towns.
