... with rooms built on top. That makes it sound a bit primitive, but they were so lovely. Cool, and with the gentle sounds of the river beneath us as we slept. You could jump in the river to cool off, but be warned - it flows very fast here and it will sweep you away: you certainly cant swim against the current and make any headway!

We took the obligatory walk across noting the escape platforms to avoid oncoming trains and stopped ...

Spen was really worried as he had paid a 5000 baht deposit that he thought they would keep and suspected they would charge us more.
