Its raining cats and dogs…Southern Thailand

Ok the title maybe a little misleading. Its hasn’t actually rained too much, but enough so all the prices on the west coast islands are fabulously low. Win! So last time we left you we were saying goodbye to Malaysia and heading north to Thailand. Instead of taking the direct tourist minibuses to an island paradise (as you may know they’re not our favourites) we hopped on the train from Butterworth to Hat-Yai, doing the border crossing in some small town in the middle. The border crossing was pretty straight forward and involved walking around in a circle to various booths where different people stamped your passport. You leave via the same door you came in but hey-presto your in a different country…odd huh. We did however have one nervous moment while standing at one of these booths…. our train started to move away, luckily not very far, but far enough to cause a brief moment of sheer panic.
