I’ve spent the last 24hrs travelling on a bus. I started at 6pm from Chiang Rai and got to Bangkok at 5:30am. I was on another bus at 6:30am and arrived in Pattaya at 8:30am. I intended to stay a week for some Muay Thai training but soon realized the town was infested with ex-pats and their Thai “girlfriends.” No wonder the guesthouse description included “back door entry for your companion.” I was back on the bus at 12pm. I arrived back in Bangkok at 2:30pm at a bus station at the other side of town from the main backpackers area. No one wanted to drive me there during rush hour until I finally convinced a tuk-tuk driver to drive me. 45 minutes and $10 later I was at my hostel. I expected days like this before travelling so there’s no complaints. I just wanted to share the other side of travelling. Smile.
