Ko Chang and Trat

Sunday 22 August: The slow 'wooden' ferry ploughs through the rain, landing at the large mountainous island of Ko Chang, which would be great for trekking in season - but not now. Then it's a sorag-taa-on onto Lonely Beach resort for one night. Rain, rain, rain. So next day I take the vehicle ferry to the mainland and the riverside town of Trat with good restaurants and undercover markets where you can buy freshly-cooked take-aways for a handful of baht. A big bag of cooked mussels with spicy sauce are just 20 baht (40 pence) - wash these down with a few Chang beers and you have a feast.
Wednesday 25th: By-passing the go-go girly beach-bars at Pattaya I'm on the express bus to Bangkok, yes it's still raining.
