Thailand 2006




First I visited Bangkok.  


Then I took the train to Chumporn form where I got a boat to Koh Tao, an island popular with divers.  I was not enthralled by the island as it seemed to be overrun with foreigners, so most of the food was too tame for my taste.    One night there was a party nearby with fire dancing, which was fun.  After some time on the island I returned to Chumporn before returning to Japan and investigated the local food.



I stopped at Trat on my way to Cambodia.  It has an interesting market.  While I was there, a fair was being held.  That is where I saw the dancers, who looked like dolls, and the daredevil on a bike.
