At the start of the journey we encountered some problem and not taking any chances we detoured back to Ah Wei's workshop at USJ. After confident that the problem was solved, we started our journey again at 5.30pm. We arrived Changlun quite late and decided to put up a night at Kangar, Perlis.
After breakfast, we drove to Changlun and purchased Thailand car insurance and proceed to the border. Border crossing was fast, as few vehicles at both CIQ. The journey started now and we had our first stop at PTT for cup of Amazon Coffee before heading to Chumphon. Stop for lunch at PTT in Thong Song town. Here they have the halal restaurant (N08*09'27.4" E099*39'58.0"). Proceed to Prachuap Khiri Khan and arrived at Had Thong Hotel (N11*48'17.2"E099*47'56.1") around 8.30pm. Here I am always facinated to watch the sunrise from the balcony of my room every time I stayd there.
Had breakfast at the hotel and continue our journey. Our next destination is Damneon Saduak, the famous floating market. As we were travelling along the route we spotted a signboard stated Sam Phan Nam Floating Market (N12*30'04.1"E099*54'56.0"), Hua Hin and decided to visit the place. we found that the area was newly open and not much we can see the place is not open for business, maybe we are to early ...... not wanting to waste time we proceed to our main destination. Arrived at Damneon Saduak Floating Market (N13*31'12.8"E099*57'31.2")before noon. The market start business from 8.00am - 12.00noon.
