Thailand: Hat Yai to Phuket

Although a two-month Thai visa only costs US$10, I'm still suffering from the attitude problem that struck me in Indonesia; I really want to head over into India, and it feels like I'm just 'doing time' until I can hit the subcontinent.

Thai Bus Problems

The next day we struck north, aiming to get to Ko Samui in one journey. Things didn't exactly go according to plan, however, and by the end of the day we were stuck on the wrong side of the Thai peninsula, some eight hours from our starting point and still four hours and a long ferry trip from Ko Samui. It seems that the simplicity of Malaysian transport has lulled us into a false sense of security.
