Southern Thailand beckoned. From the resort town of Hua Hin it is a short drive to the Monsoon Winery. The design and operation of this venture is very Australian.
Initially I was unsure if we were on the correct road but we managed to find the winery/vineyard in the Hua Hin hills. From there we headed south on Route 4.
I wanted to get off the main roads and see some ‘country Thailand’.
The market at Sam Roi Yot looked interesting so we stopped for a walk around.
I drove into Sam Roi Yat Beach, past its protected harbour.
Not far from the National Park, I turned off Route 4 to find a resort by the beach. Kuiburi Resort was our home for the night.
Come morning we continued to head south. Past Surat Thani to beautiful Khanom.
We returned to Kuiburi for the night before I headed back to Hua Hin – Ron and Naomi stayed a few extra nights.
Ron had NFI where he was or where he had been and precious little of where he was going. Not quite Karl Pilkington, although he surpassed him in some aspects. Looking at a local map of Hua Hin was never going to locate hotels in Surat Thani. All round it was a challenge.
