    Phitsanulok, Nakon Sawan, Lopburi Run July 2014

    Ok, This is just a light weight thread to try out the new software regards loading up picture threads. A few weeks ago I hit the above towns for a look see, only been to Lopburi previously. The trip was bought on simply because AirAsia had a silly fare consisting of a one way flight to Phitsanulok for 800 Baht. So I flew up and worked my way back to Bangkok by Train and Bus. I love doing these trips exploring new towns just plebing around being a nasty farang tourist, just walk around checking shit out, nothing heavy mind you. I scope them out, if I like the feel of the place I'll go back and rent a car. So I front up for my flight.
    Stroller is a Yerman faggot.

    So I do a search on the Net for a Gaff. Must be central and be a good price. I was traveling Solo. Turned this one up which was a ducks fart away from the Train station. Price was 600 baht with US breakfast, cracking deal, good place. Big clean rooms with all the fruit, older style but functional.

    Next day its out on to street doing aimless wandering, the objective for today was to reach the famous Wat in town. Besides that just pleb around the joint looking at shit.
    Town had a nice feel, laid back friendly people, Sukhothai just down the road and Nakon Sawan also.

    These I found interesting, not to many Thai towns around that still use this form of transport. Heaps of them in the town, could of been in Vietnam.

    Markets, I love markets and always end up in the local. Found this there. Great little runner this, I could use it after a few hours steady drinking.

    The town was rammed full selling Buddhas, Amulets and that sort of stuff. Must be the presence of The main Wat in town. Some really nice Buddhas, this small one was 28,500 BHT.

    Of course a photo can never show the glory of some of these Wats, this one was exceptional.
