2010 seems to be like 'Visit Thailand Year' for me. I didn't go overseas except the neighboring Thailand. Can't really recall how many times but anything further than Sungai Kolok, I think it's more than 5 times. Well, at least I went to Kok Samui twice, and Bangkok and Chiang Rai twice, not including the one I'm blogging about right now.
This time I brought the whole family along. It was five of us. I bought the return ticket on Thai Air Asia from Bangkok - Narathiwat for 7859.50 THB. It wasn't really cheap but I need to return on that date. Instead we took the train to Bangkok, which cost 977 BHT for the lower berth and 907 BHT for the upper berth. Our trip begin on 17th November and ends on 26th November 2010.
For us the train journey was an enjoyable one as we seldom get to travel together, even though it takes about 20 hours. The most important thing is that the bed and the toilet must be clean, and it is. I didn't plan much for this trip and we want it to be a relax trip, and as free and an easy one. So, I didn't bother to check the net on places of interest, and let my cousin over in Bangkok who insist on arranging the itinerary. So, I just let it be.
Nakhon Pathom is about an hour to Bangkok. We reached Bangkok slightly an hour later from the schedule. Without hurry nor worry as compared to our past trips, we know what to expect in Bangkok now. We took our sweet time getting off the train, and spent sometime at the station taking photos, going to the toilet and eat at the food court before phoning for my cousins. This is truly a relax journey.
