We all pile into a tuk tuk to the station to discover the train is an hour late but the time flys by and soon we are amongst the locals on a busy train, strange food is sold by runners that go up and down the carriage and we share some amazing rice cooked in bamboo and get chatting to a Thai massage women I resist the urge to strip off and lay down in the walkway but I am sure she would have been fine with that.
After around 6 hours we arrive in Chumphon and are greeted by a perfect English speaking Thai tourist guide, once we have extracted the info we need we briskly make our exit and get a tuk tuk to the hotel we think sounded best. For £10 a night we got a room with two double beds air con and (yes John) a toilet - (photo to follow)
We take a picture of another weird toilet - for now this is one of our tasks.
Its been a busy but very good day and we still have the whole of tomorrow here before we make our way to Phuket on Wednesday where we stay put for a month (we think!!)
