My travels to Thailand 2010 – part 4
Today I was going to the eastward coastline for some scuba diving. This was to be done as a day trip from Bangkok. Around Bangkok is only a few dive sites. Today I was heading by boat to Koh Krak. It is not in the league of the dive sites in Southern Thailand such as the Similan Islands but it is convenient as a day trip from Bangkok.
As is typical in Thailand, the sea was rough.
I planned on two dives at the island. Each diving down to approximately 12 metres.
After the dives, I had a wee look around the beach for the sunset before heading back to Bangkok via minibus.
Back in Bangkok I was going to enjoy my last night in town.
I really like the street food in Thailand and despite what the guide books say, I never had to run for the toilet afterwards.
I was due to fly to Kathmandu the next day.
I was able to get a upgrade to business class on this flight. I guess the Thaiair Stewardess like cuddly toy travellers.
I arrived in Kathmandu ready for my adventure to Mt. Everest.
