After breakfast we sat in a room adjoining the breakfast room to consider our options. We ascertained that we would not be able to arrange transport to Had Yao Pier to catch a Ferry to an Island without pre booking and that the earliest we would be able to travel was the next day, so Terry organised a room for a further night.
The Wifi in the Hotel was extremely slow but eventually, we managed to book a Hotel for 3 nights on Koh Lanta
God knows how we would have managed without the Internet.
By this time I had started suffering from cabin fever and wanted to go out. Terry said there was nowhere to go, but I had read in the South East Asia book that Trang should not be dismissed as just a stop over point, and that in fact, it was worth walking around. We managed to find a small bar, which was cited in the book, called 'My Friend' where we stopped for a beer but apart from that, there was nothing else to see. Don't believe everything you read.
We returned to the Hotel and each had a shower, it was so incredibly humid and dusty on the streets. After that, we lay on our beds ( we had a double each - pure comfort), and watched a couple of films on the TV; The Woman In Black and The Beach.
We went down to the restaurant in the Hotel for an early dinner. We were hoping the band would be playing outside again, as they were really good but instead, it was Karaoke. Karaoke is big in South East Asia, the locals love it.
After a couple of beers and an ice cream we retired to our room where I updated this blog and Terry watched yet another film; Prince Caspian. We packed most of our belongings for the morning and although had hardly lifted a finger all day (apart to tap on the keys of the IPad), felt completely shattered and both fell to sleep early.
Terry woke in the night freezing and had to use our two bath sheets and the extra pillows to cover himself to keep warm. I woke in the night and saw the pillows balancing on him - I wish I had taken a photo. In the morning I remembered I had set the air con to a low temperature when we had returned from our walk around Trang and had forgotten to reset it. Oh well, hey ho, these things happen. I couldn't be expected to remember everything.
