Koh Phayam

Filed under: travel — mat @ 7:48 am

Yeah we were able to make it ;)
Flight from Yangoon to KawThaung was ok, even we flu with Maynma Airlines which are not recommend to chose (but it was a code sharing flight and we had no other options) Mandy survived it without any kind of pills, even we had 2 stop overs.
Crossing the border was really easy. I expected more trouble but it was smooth. Go out of Birma (NO permit needed!) , take a boat to Saplanpa pier and clear immigration for Thailand.
A Songtheaw brought us to Ranong market and I went into a bank to exchange money. Terrible staff there. Anyway they serve good food at the market and we had a noodle soup and Pad Thai Gai for 40 Baht.
The blue Songthaew goes still to Phayam pier as it does like 14 years. Good to know. Several speed boat companies offer their service and we arrived after 35(!!) minutes the beloved island (to whom it may concern .. on our first trip just 4 people on the boat and it took more than 3 hours)
Got a nice tent @JJs and it felt like coming home. This island brings me down within a couple of hours.
So everything good so far. The bad thing is I have a cold (I guess the air con in the bus from Mandalay to Yangoon) and it rains @Phayam. What a shitty combination. Will move to a bungalow (everything in the tent seems to be wet) and Mandy brought even Antibiotics.
Just a few people here. Bamboo bungalows is now 3 times the size (we had a walk through it)
I’m sure I will be well day after tomorrow (with all the help from the pharmacy)
