hello, me and pam is going to have some holiday to Penang and Bangkok with a low budget and extreme fun holiday. We decide to go Penang with express bus from Malacca to Penang and from Penang to Bangkok we decide to take KTM train ( to experience a train, which is they will change the sit to bed when they reach Thailand border. So i decide to write some review and experience about our journey to both country. I hope these review about accommodation and attraction can help you. Me and pam love to eat like local, walk like local and bargain like local. Then you will experience the culture.
We learn a lot of things, when travel to a place, and meet lot of traveler from another country. these experience is valuable and awesome. Travel is just like a myth buster! because we usually heard some friend talk negative about a country so i personally agree with a quote ” To travel is to discover that everyone is wrong about other countries” – Aldous Huxley
This is our 3rd day at bangkok so we decided to take 2 hours train from Hualampung train station to Ayutthaya ( i think is around 240 baht but the return ticket is only 10baht … that’s weird -,- ) omg.. the train is damm slow and i was slept in the whole journey. When we reach the station, a tuktuk driver was try to approach us with his map and he said : ” you cant go around ayutthaya without tuktuk, 700 baht a day” and suddenly a women drag us to information counter, she gave a tourist map. so just be careful when you reach there. A bunch of tuktuk driver to is trying to scam us. As i know from others blogger they said lot of shop they had rent bicycle and motorcycle with a cheaper price – 50baht-. When you go out from train station you will see bicycle rental shop, but after you cross the river there also had 2 bicycle rental shop around there. Me and Pam just visit few temple only because this place should take at least 2 days to finish and all the heritage is kinda far. I’m super-duper tired because travel with bicycle really need lots stamina and plus the weather is totally drive me crazy! — i suggest you ride motorcycle ( becareful with the traffic and local transport! ) — one day hard to see all the heritage temple, i think you need at least 2 days to finish it.
When you go around with bicycle or motorcycle please becareful with the traffic, when i try to cross the road a tuktuk behind me bang my bicycle and he said ” get off the road with his stupid face expression” what the heck!!!are you trying to kill me? damm please becareful these idiot tuktuk and local car is heartless driver! and their accident rating is world top number 4.
We go around with a tourist map. And dont forget to bring plenty of water, shades, and a thick sunscreen with you.
