Zonked after the travelling
People i met here who contributed to, and improved my trip: Julia (Russia)
On Monday we caught the bus from Phuket Town to Ranong, which serves as the border town with Myanmar. The journey took around 6 hours and was undertaken for the sole purpose of extending our Thai visas. We stayed in Kiwi Orchard Guest House, which was conveniently located next to the bus station and had an adjoining restaurant and internet facilities. There was also a restaurant just over the road from here that served kick ass banana milkshakes for 15baht ($0.45).
There isn't a great deal to see in town, although we did enjoy taking a look at the night market, which served up some excellent, cheap food. The previous days diving excursions and long bus journey had left me completely exhausted and i passed out before Julia, which made a pleasant change :)
