I wanted to experience just a wee bit of Thai culture before i leave the country once again as i had been in tourist central for a over a week (not complaining though)...so i headed to Trang...supposed to be bustling, intersting (according to my guidebook which isn't always right).

I succeeded in getting away from the tourists as i didn't see another farang (thai for foreigner) for 2 days and i kind of know why now. There was hardly anything to do in Trang...wasn't much to see either, just an run of the mill surburbian town, thai style though of course. So i just sat around in the afternoon...took some pictures, and even that was a challenge, finding interesting things to photograph..don't think i really succeeded.

It was lovely though to be in a hotel room after more than a week of bungalow hopping. It made me reallyyy appreciate the simple things, like a proper loo with a hot shower, being properly inside away from the bugs, having a mirror, brushing my teeth in a sink...you get the idea...

So it was good to be out of the tourist hoopla and back into the grind of things sort of speak... but also glad that i only planned to stay in Trang for one night. As i make my may to Malaysia...
