    Good .. The bad and the ugly tour ...

    Well this is my first post on this forum .... So hi to everyone.
    Thought I would start with a recent trip report .. I live in Chonburi and my best friend and his girlfriend came for a visit over the Christmas and New Year period. It was a first visit for the both of them ... And they wanted to see a bit of Thailand ... So we did the following ... I called it the Good, the bad and ugly tour ... I let you work out which one is the ugly ..

    We started with 3 nights in Pattaya ... We live about an hour from Pattaya ... And as much as it has a lot of girly bars ... If you ignore them ... Its a ok place. Just thought it would be a place to start ... Not that far from the airport ... Stayed in a nice hotel on second road called Sabai Resort ... Did the markets ... And beach ... And the 3 days went by very quickly ... Had a few drinks in a bar ... And no problems when you have your wife with you ... Very friendly and cheap drinks !!

    From there we went for a week to Koh Chang .... It was our second time there ... I really love this place ... Has everything I love on holiday ... And the most beautiful beaches and picture card blue sea ... Christmas day we did a 5 island boat trip ... Snorkeling with some beautiful colour fish. Again a nice hotel called the Klong Prao ... That week whizzed past ... From there we had a night at ours ... Showed them a bit of our town ... Ate in a nice restaurant in Bang Saen.

    From there we spent 3 nights at kanchanaburi ... Went to a beautiful national park and a place called Erawan waterfalls .... Well worth the visit ... Bit of a trek up to the 7 levels ... But to swim in a spring water pond is great ... Bit cold ... lol.

    Did the bridge and railway visit ... The cemetery is kept in such a lovely condition ... Certainly worth the visit ...
    Went to a nice restaurant to see the New Year in ... Although the taxi did not go down well with my mates girlfriend ... Who had spent 2 hours getting ready !!
    It was a motorbike and side car taxi ... Hence the saying "Come on the back of a motorbike." Have a great photo ... But not sure how to attach it ? Oh well gave me a good laugh ... Nice little family run hotel there ... Sabai@kan.


    Finished the trip with 2 nights in Bangkok ... We stayed at the tallest hotel in Thailand .. The Baiyoke Sky ... It has a revolving platform at the top ... The views are fantastic .... Did a visit to the Royal Palace .... And a couple of markets ...

    So that was the trip .... My friends want to come back ... So that's a good sign.
