It's not easy to run a tourist-focused business in Trang - travellers want to get in, then straight out again, either island-hopping like me, or killing time before the sleeper to Bangkok. But the people at the Sri Trang Hotel are having a stab at it - big rooms, good aircon, wifi on all but the top floor and eclectically furnished hangout area with good coffee if you need it. The long-haul travel, Bangkok's madness and last night's Chang craziness had finally caught up with me, so decided to pause here for 24 hours.

Sights? Well, there's a wat on the other side of the railway tracks (gave it a miss), a wet market (up too late) and the night market - described as the best on the Andaman coast, which is pushing it, but good fun. I went with an empty stomach and started with mini-fried eggs (20p), then the local crispy pork with sticky rice wrapped in a banana leaf (24p), moving onto a prawn and egg pad thai (60p) and finshed off with coconut cake (20p) - an expensive evening out. Leaving the night market, an elephant with disco lights wandered past on the main road - just like home...
