Day 9 ~ Mae Sariang to Nakhon Sawan

From Mae Hon Song we were supposedly went straight to Mae Sot but unfortunately 50km after Mae Sariang town our vehicle developed the same problem of overheating. On the advise from the locals we decided to head to Mae Sariang town for assistance on our vehicle. Since it was nearly dark when we arrive, we scouted for hotels to stay for the night and found Good View Hotel. On inspection, the hotel is within our budget and clean and we had a good night sleep. In the morning from our balcony, we were astomished to see a river flowing behind our hotel - breath taking view. After repairs on our vehicle, we continued our journey from Mae Sariang to Thoen and head straight to highway No 2 and hit to Nakhon Sawan. Along the way, we found a rest area with a river flowing through.


Day 10, 11 and 12 ~ Nakhon Sawan to Prachuap Khiri Khan and Krabi

After checkout, still at Nakhon Sawan, we found this place by the roadside selling camping equipments and items. We were thrilled to see the various items and bought a few hammocks to bring back home. from there we proceed to our next destination - Krabi. Since the distance to Krabi is quite far, we will normally stay overnight at Had Thong Hotel at Prachuap Khiri Khan. After breakfast we continued our journey to Krabi and along the way we decided to check out Phang Nga bay. Since it was already evening we did not manage to visit Koh Panyee a muslim fishing village. Given time, insyallah we will visit the muslim fishing village. When we reached Krabi, we headed to Ao Nang and scouted around for hotels as we did not make any reservations. After several attempts, we found AusThai Hotel about 1km to Ao Nang beach.
