Day 1: 
I will be leaving from the last PTT petrol station in Bangkok on the main Rama II road and hugging that main road all the way down south. This will probably be the ‘worst’ day for riding conditions considering that is a very congested and dangerous bit of road with lots of trucks/taxi’s and movement. 

However Paul has selected a really cute ‘homestay’ for the first night @ a reasonable AUD $50 (THB 1,000) a night.
