My Ride To Krabi on a budget holiday

Last weekend, I went to Krabi with 10 friends.


That's right guys! For those of you who don't know, its a town on the west coast of southern Thailand at the mouth of the Krabi River into the Andaman Sea.



Cool isn't it the way I put it. Got it from wikipedia. Practiced really hard to tell people whenever someone do ask where Krabi is.

Now, since its a 4 days and 3 night trip, i'm going to try and summarize the nicest part of the trip that I will remember

FOR THE REST OF MY LIFE!!

To start of, I am going to talk about my ride to Krabi that we pretty much spent

A WHOLE DAY ON!!!

Now if you're thinking that people who travelled around the world by budget flights such as using AirAsia were budget travellers, THINK AGAIN!!



If you're also thinking that people who travelled by bus to Thailand were budget travellers and already had a 50/50 percent chance of survival, THINK AGAIN!!


and then you thought how far could one "not so famous" blogger would go and what budget travelling is all about,

We took the van.


Sorry wrong van.

THIS VAN!!



That's right, the kind of van that can fit 11 people. HUMANS!!

I mean what the hell!! I can understand if this van were transporting goods or stray cats and dogs from the road or old newspaper or furniture.


BUT BLARDY HELL NOT HUMANS RIGHT!!!!RIGHT!!

As horrible as things may look on the outside, things were rather "comforting" on the inside.

So as you can see, it had comfy seats. Sitting position was as good as a BMW 7-series.




It has a Dell 15" LCD monitor screen in the middle!! If you thought that this LCD screen was for show, It does play DVD. (DVD player was under the drivers seat infront)



With so much luxury, how could anyone complain especially if you're on a budget trip??

So, we sat in comfortably and left Penang at 5:30 in the morning.

Things were all ok, we were all so excited until I pulled out the itenary when worry started to seep in.



WHAT 6 MORE HOURS????IN THIS VAN!!

LET ME OUT!!LET ME OUT!!PENANG I LOVE YOU!!
