Our train delivers us promptly in Hat Yai, after a pleasant railway journey. We discover we can catch a bus to Krabi right away, but we are keen to spend a night in Hat Yai, just to get some sleep and to do a few jobs.
We do the jobs, grab a little food and have an early night. We even get tickets for the early bus to Krabi.
It’s been a long day, with an uncertain and dangerous boat trip and a border crossing that could have been easier. But, we are already enjoying being in Thailand and are looking forward to getting to the coast tomorrow.
